   Product Tip of the Month

Vista Gadgets

Microsoft's "Vista" has received a bunch of bad publicity over the past year, some true and some not. It's time for a "Change" and this is the first of many changes to come down the computing pipe.  We won't hover on Vista much in this newsletter as Windows 7 is coming down the pipe too and it looks exciting!  Don't plan on upgrading a machine to Windows 7 unless it has Vista on it now, when your ready to move forward do it with a new machine that has the horsepower and new video built in, you will be much happier!.
