Recently I blogged (blog post here) about a wonderful app called switcher which allows you to get all open windows and arrange them so that you can see what you've got open. While watching a video on YouTube I was thinking just how handy it would be to be able to zoom in on my computer just like Chris Pirillo could on OS X, and just like before I found an app that allows you to do just what OS X dose.

The app is called "ZoomIt" and you can zoom into your desktop by pressing your choice of buttons. I find this app very good in comparison to the OS X zoom, it allows you to zoom in, zoom in live, write something on your desktop and allows you to draw on your desktop. You can choose what the shortcut keys are so you get use it extra fast. But if you do run this on a lower end PC it may slow it down just a little.

Expose for Windows

Are you sick of your "flip-3d", thinking that maybe there's something out there better than it? Well I may've found what you're looking for. In OS X there is a feature called Expose that pretty much gets all open windows and arranges them so that you can see what you've got open and you can select them. It's a very good idea and some people have made an app for it inside of Windows (Vista + aero only) and the really good thing about this is that it's freeware!

If you would like to use switcher make sure that you've got a computer with Vista and the aero feature so that you can use it, if you've got Vista home basic then you won't be able to use this but if you've got any OS with the aero feature then you can use this app.

Show your support, stop internet censorship in Australia

If you live in Australia and haven't heard of the internet censorship the Australian government is sneaking out then you probably don't care or live without internet. The Australian government have been trying to place a filter over our internet so that they control what we have access to and what we don't. Even though this has been condemned from almost everybody. When I was looking around on Google I found this site EFA which is a site that is against internet censorship a page (Page here) on that site has media releases on the censorship act and almost all of them are against the filtering. I also found a blog site (Site here) that allows you to keep up to date with the filtering that is unfairly going on.

The defence to the filtering is that it will "stop" child paedophiles and sites that have Child Porn, but anyone who has used a computer for a while can tell you that child paedophiles will soon get around the problem. The thing that the Australian government is missing out on is the education part of the internet, learning how to use it and safely.

If you feel you want to take more action about internet filtering please go to this site and spread the word so more people can hopefully stop it.

Thanks for reading all, Have a good one!
