MapQuest Beta Released
Posted on Saturday, October 7th, 2006 at 3:00 pm.

MapQuest

In the midst of the pwnage of Google Maps MapQuest is getting back in the game by finally adding some interactivity to their maps. Their new maps have Javascript - meaning they are draggable, just like in Google Maps. MapQuest also adds aerial views - just like Google Maps’ Satellite View. It’s almost just like Google Maps with the instant zoom bar, switching between aerial and street views, etc. Check it out, though it might not be as good as Google Maps, it will be good for the people that don’t know what Google Maps is.

Windows Vista RC2 Released
Posted on Saturday, October 7th, 2006 at 2:35 pm.

Windows Vista Logo

Windows Vista Release Candidate 2 has been released. This seems to be the last pre-shipping version that is released. Of course, it is only available to “Technical Beta Testers, TAP Testers, and MSDN/TechNet subscribers” but it looks like it is possible to download it without one. This is because that on their release page they say that “UPDATE: Windows Vista RC2 is now available to Customer Preview Program participants for a limited time. If you’re in the CPP use these links to access RC2…”

This new build of Windows Vista offers users a higher level of performance and stability – improving what was established in Windows Vista RC1. We were able to also fix many of your bugs reported from RC1 and implement them for RC2. Thank you to our beta testers for the bugs and feedback you submitted for RC1. The improvement shows as we raised our quality bar even higher!

Grab it quick, it might not be there anymore. Or, you might not want it anyway. Your call.
