15.0.854.0 Beta (Aug 18, 2011)
Seems to have lost the function of pinning pages on the speed dial, anyone with similar experience ?
2.5.2 (Oct 29, 2010)
A really useful program, it not only adds the various functions of snapping edges in windows 7 (but better since its customizable), but also adds a long sought after function, namely universal window snapping. After been using this software for a little more than a year I can't understand why it hasn't been implemented into windows from the start. No worries tho, if the price isn't too steep for you (which is the only down side as far as I can think), then go a ahead.
4 stars, for a good piece of software, -1 for the steep price

I agree mostly with everyone else, it does the job, but there are other free alternatives. However, I bought my own license a little bit more than 2 years ago, and I can allege that I'm satisfied, it helped me through the rough period of vista, and now in windows 7. If you like it, then it might be worth it for you, if not, look for the free alternatives.

From what I read you can skip that new UI if you prefer when using mouse and keyboard. got it from itworld.com "Keep in mind that the new UI sits on top of the traditional Windows UI. Users will be able to switch between this "skin" and the classic Windows design we're used to"

Copying, or using other peoples ideas is nothing bad, what they are doing is taking something already out there, change it, and make it more accessible for novice users. Just look at world of warcraft, they pretty much own the mmorpg business, it's not because many of the ideas they use weren't around, it's just that they knew how to take these ideas, and make them into something more.

Very interesting read. I'm currently studying business design for my master's degree which is very much about what you are saying. Google is in a sense very much changing the landscape as we call it, the landscape of business, it's not necessarily because they have a greater product(as you also stated you could easily swap your current Google products for equally good ones), but rather it's about their Core Competences. Core concepts are something that gives value to the customers, it's also something that you could expand to different markets without problem, like good customers service or good relationships with your neighboring companies, and once you have it, you need to make the most of it.
It is my thinking that Google has indeed very successful Core Competences. However that does not make them evil in any sense, they are what we call Prime Movers. Prime Movers are companies which has a winning Core Competence and is so good at using it that they are literary changing the landscape, one example of that could be a more efficient way of handling, transporting and selling goods such as IKEA implemented, or Tetrapak who came up with a completely new design of various food packagings such as milk cartons, which not only had an impact on the food, but also the food producing companies various factories and their processes, but it didn't end there, the logistics changed and even it even made an impact on the layout of the stores where the customers will come and browse.
Something that is closely connected with the concept of Prime Movers is the vacuum principle, which is in short, that when a new set of rules are set for the market someone will step up, and if it isn't you, it will be someone else (as in companies and entities, not individuals).
Reconfigure, or be re-configured is something we often say, which is very much what is happening here, Google has started a train moving as the Prime Mover, and the others can't but follow(i.e. be re-configured), but there will come to a point probably where there are new emerges, with new ideas, and new winning Core Competencies which will perhaps make them Prime Movers and force others to be re-configured or try to come up with something new themselves in order to reconfigure in order to stay alive.
I'm not sure all this makes any sense, but I just read the preamble of this article the other day, and later on had a very interesting lecture about it, so I just thought I could share some of the thoughts I had :)
