Windows 7 to use touch-screen interface; new OS due in late '09, Ballmer says
The operating system that introduced the graphical user interface to the masses may also be the first to bring touch-screen technology to PCs.
Windows 7, the successor to Windows Vista, will incorporate touch technology from Microsoft's Surface tabletop computer, according to an announcement posted last night to a Microsoft blog. A video demonstration of Windows 7's multitouch capabilities is also available for viewing on the blog.
According to demos, Windows 7's multitouch software can enable desktop and laptop PC users to use their fingers to draw pictures on-screen, zoom in and out of photos, zip quickly through slideshows, search and skim maps, and even play an on-screen piano. The multitouch features will be available via Windows 7, as well as on third-party software.
A live demonstration was given last night at The Wall Street Journal's All Things Digital conference in the San Diego suburb of Carlsbad (transcript here) during an on-stage interview with Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and Chairman Bill Gates.
During that interview, Ballmer also said Windows 7 will arrive in late 2009, according to accounts from the All Things Digital conference, including from CNET's News.com and Reuters. The reports appear to confirm speculation earlier this spring stemming from comments by Gates that the operating system would be scheduled to ship late next year, or about three years after the Vista operating system was released to manufacturing in November 2006.
Meanwhile, Windows development chief Steven Sinofsky, in an interview with CNET News.com, said the operating system would be generally available in January 2010.
Windows 7's multitouch technology is similar to the touch-screen features of Apple's hot-selling iPhone.
Apple has also already started shipping multitouch features this year via its MacBook Air laptop and other MacBook Pro laptops. Those computers use a trackpad, not the screen itself, however.
At the conference, Gates, who is scheduled to officially retire June 30, also reportedly said he plans to spend 20% of his post-retirement time working at Microsoft and the rest at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. At Microsoft, he will work on future versions of Microsoft Office, search technology and interface technologies such as speech input and handwriting recognition.

Jatropha Curcas Bio-Diesel Projects
Jatropha curcas plants have the following unique qualities:
- Oil yield, approx. 33%
- Thrives well in tropical climates such as Malaysia
- Fast growth; produces fruits after 6 months of cultivation
- Low maintenance - the use of pesticides and other polluting substances are not necessary, due to the pesticidal and fungicidal properties of the plant.
- Life expectancy of more than 45 years
- One jatropha fruit contains 2-4 seeds that are processed into oil, which will then be used to produce biodiesel
- Small-sized and shady shrubs which makes it easy to harvest
- An acre of land is capable of accommodating cultivation of 800 plants. A 10-inch seedling is sold between the prices of RM 2.50 to RM 4.50 at the nurseries.
- Per acre yield of 3.6 metric tons of fruits in the first two years and will only multiply thenceforth
- BIONAS buy-back guarantee for jatropha fruits is valued at RM 0.85/kilo equal to RM850 per tan for 30-60 years.
- Oil obtained from the jatropha fruits Oil obtained from the jatropha fruits when heated will produce a poisonous yellow substance. When it is added with sulfur, it can be applied to minor cuts and wounds. It also used to treat athlete’s foot. The skin of the fruit is commonly used to treat constipation.
- Brewed leaves of these jatropha plants are known to have antipyretic and anti-malarial properties. The leaves are also food for the silkworms. Shed leaves that fall to the ground will decompose hence promoting soil fertility.
- Barks are used to treat snakebites and sprains. They are also effective in removing the white off a baby’s tongue and relieving extreme body heat. They may also be used to produce dark blue fabric dye.
- The roots are used as laxatives as well as to treat rheumatism.
- The seeds serve as active ingredients in potent traditional remedies for treating knee pains, cough, scalds, gonorrhea, paralysis, swellings, jaundice, pneumonia, itches, ulcers and growths.
- The sap is used for alleviating toothache and mouth ulcers but should not be consumed due to its poisonous nature. It is also used in treating post-circumcision wounds to expedite recovery.
- Dregs produced from jatropha oil processing may be reused as natural fertilizers for they are rich in nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. They may also serve as fodder for livestock cattle.

WIFE VS. HUSBAND
A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word.
An earlier discussion had led to an argument and
neither of them wanted to concede their position.
As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs,
the husband asked sarcastically, "Relatives of yours?"
"Yep," the wife replied, "in-laws."
W O R D S
A husband read an article to his wife about how many words women use a day...
30,000 to a man's 15,000.
The wife replied, "The reason has to be because we have to repeat everything to men...
The husband then turned to his wife and asked, "What?"
A man said to his wife one day, "I don't know how you can be
so stupid and so beautiful all at the same time.
" The wife responded, "Allow me to explain.
God made me beautiful so you would be attracted to me;
God made me stupid so I would be attracted to you!
WHO DOES WHAT
A man and his wife were having an argument about who
should brew the coffee each morning.
The wife said, "You should do it, because you get up first,
and then we don't have to wait as long to get our coffee."
The husband said, " You are in charge of cooking around here and
you should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my coffee."
Wife replies, "No, you should do it, and besides, it is in the Bible
that the man should do the coffee."
Husband replies, "I can't believe that, show me."
So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament
and showed him at the top of several pages, that it indeed says.........."HEBREWS"
The Silent Treatment
A man and his wife were having some problems at home and were giving each
other the silent treatment. Suddenly, the man realized that the next day,
he would need his wife to wake him at 5:00 AM for an early morning business flight.
Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper,
"Please wake me at 5:00 AM ." He left it where he knew she would find it.
The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM
and he had missed his flight. Furious, he was about to go and
see why his wife hadn't wakened him, when he noticed a piece of paper by
the bed. The paper said, "It is 5:00 AM . Wake up."
Men are not equipped for these kinds of contests.
God may have created man before woman,
but there is always a rough draft before the masterpiece.

- Sir Alex Ferguson
Manchester United set off for Moscow
Sir Alex Ferguson is taking a full squad with him to Russia's capital Moscow as the team departed from Manchester international airport on Monday afternoon.
The boss takes 24 players with him. He says he already knows his team, but picking seven substitutes - and subsequently leaving six players out - won't be easy.
"I know my team, but picking the substitutes is the big problem," he said. "I’m not going to enjoy it. There will be some very good players left out.
"I hope one day they extend the substitutes’ bench to 11 players as they do in World Cup games. The dilemma should be taken from me.
"It doesn’t get any easier with time. If anything it becomes more difficult. This team is starting to blend together and mature, so you get to know the players better. To be told by me that they’re being left out, no matter what I say, doesn’t resonate with them."
Travelling squad: (Goalkeepers) Van der Sar, Kuszczak, Heaton (Defenders) Ferdinand, Vidic, Evra, Brown, Neville, O'Shea, Silvestre, Pique (Midfielders) Scholes, Carrick, Giggs, Hargreaves, Anderson, Fletcher, Park, Nani (Forwards) Ronaldo, Rooney, Tevez, Saha, Welbeck.
