These days, with increasing temperatures, we had some severe thunderstorms already. Rain, clouds and sunshine are all facets of the upcoming summer, a time of less work, more free time, enjoyment, … fun. The last days and weeks, we started preparing for this year’s summer vacations, and Windows played a quite big role in it. How so?
Well, using online map services like Bing Maps is really fun, especially when there is Bird’s Eye view of the location you are interested in. We visited our home town virtually and were simply amazed at the accuracy and level of details you can see in those photos.
When we had checked out locations, we thought about how to get there. How good that you can check trains and their timetables online! We just entered our departure and arrival locations, date, number of people, hit ‘Submit’—and instantly got our train connections. Then it was only a matter of seconds to hit ‘Print’ and get some tiny PDF files containing the site, using a PDF printer.
After our vacation, we will probably plug in the SD card of our digital camera and let Windows Live Photo Gallery do the rest.
Long story short—what would we do without our computer? It has become part of our daily life.
What are your plans for the summer? I’m curious.
