By now you’ve probably seen our “To the Cloud!” TV commercials where we highlight some of the cool new stuff you can do with an awesome new PC with Windows 7 and Windows Live. The ads are great, but they’re only 30-60 seconds long, which isn’t a lot of time to dig into each PC and scenario. So, to help you better understand what’s going on in each spot and share what’s cool about the featured hardware, Ryan and I decided to shoot a video that explains it all. Watch it and you’ll see:
- Photo Fuse in Windows Live Photo Gallery running on the Sony VAIO J multi-touch all-in-one
- Sharing & syncing folders using Windows Live Mesh on the Dell XPS 14
- Windows Live Messenger HD video chat on the Samsung QX410 (Ryan’s current everyday laptop)
- Accessing all the content on another PC with Windows Live Mesh Remote Desktop, as demonstrated on the Toshiba Portege r705 (the PC I’ve been using as my work laptop for the last few weeks)
These are just some of the easy, useful things you can do with Windows 7, Windows Live Essentials 2011 and the power of the cloud. How are you using these products and services to make your life easier?
