I was invited to the blogger event for the launch of ESET NOD32 Antivirus 5 & ESET Smart Security 5 last week at Screening Room.

I am a huge fan of ESET NOD32 and have been using it since v2. All my computers and even my mom’s office computers are protected by NOD32. It is fast, real fast and does not take up much disk space at all because of the use of assembly language in the products.

Some of you might already know, WhatsApp has been available on Windows MarketPlace For Mobile since last Saturday, but unfortunately, it is only available for Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango) users. Most of us, the “general public” are still on Windows Phone 7.0 and are eagerly waiting to upgrade to Windows Phone 7.5 which I think will be released this week if not the latest next week.

The official word came from WhatsApp’s blog post:

Trend Micro Titanium Cloud Edition Maximum Security 2012

I was invited to the blogger event for the earlier launch of Trend Micro Titanium Cloud Edition Maximum Security 2012. I am a huge fan of ESET NOD32 Antivirus because it is lightweight, effective and very reasonably priced. During IT Fairs, I can get a 3 users for 2 years for just S$69. My mom’s office and my home computers are all protected by ESET Nod32 Antivirus.

Since I am given a copy of Trend Micro Titanium Cloud Edition Maximum Security 2012 (what a long software name) to try it out and so happen my ESET NOD32 Antivirus subscriptions is expiring soon, I will give Trend Micro a chance to see how well it fair against ESET. But before that can happen, I need to format my computer because for some reasons Microsoft Windows 7 Service Pack 1 refuses to install on my computer. Obviously I am not using a pirated Windows 7, it is original from my NUS MSDN Account. Since Li Xiang still need my computer to do some design work for her friend’s wedding, I can only format it after mid October 2011.

Microsoft Windows 8 Developer Preview

The last time we saw a preview of Windows 8 was during Computex back on 2nd June 2011. Yesterday at the BUILD conference, Microsoft showcased Microsoft Windows 8 Developer Preview.

The new Metro UI look awesome, hopefully this time round, Microsoft will make the UI consistent throughout the whole Windows. Microsoft has learned from their mistake and the Metro UI is now built for touch rather than mouse from the group up. It is just wrong slapping a touch UI to Windows 7, it just does not work.
