Here is another one of my "use it every day" applications. Maxivista. If you have read any of my postings related to productivity enhancing tools you know that I use MaxiVista for remote mirroring when lecturing with my Tablet PCs. I am very excited about the new version. Gunnar Bartels must have been reading my mind when he added these new features and improvements.
Version 3 now supports Vista!
- Enhanced clipboard synchronization
MaxiVista now also synchronizes formatted text, bitmaps and files (Windows XP/Vista only) between the computer's clipboards:
- Improved Remote Control
The Viewer program can now operate as a Windows service which allows you to log onto a locked secondary PC:
- New displaying options
MaxiVista supports latest widescreen resolutions and ultra high virtual resolutions (up to 4,800x2,400 pixels) with new zoom/shrink-to-fit auto-panning modes and a freely resizable viewer program in window mode:
- Up to 50% performance boost
New Intel-optimized compression algorithms and the network parameter optimizer increase the performance of the extended screen playback up to 50%
- MaxiVista now remembers the last used mode (extended screen vs. remote control vs. mirroring)
- Deactivation of extended screen can now be configured when secondary PC is being locked
- Screensaver synchronization between the computers
- Detailed network parameters settings to tweak performance
- Customizable hotkeys for all major options
Look for a review soon on http://TabletWiki.com
I am a great fan of ActiveWords and use it daily. Today I saw this on the ActiveWords website.
ActiveWord Systems offers a free four year ActiveWords SE* license to all college and university students in the United States.
ActiveWords SE is exactly the same as the commercial product ActiveWords PLUS, with these exceptions; (1) ActiveWords SE does not include scripting, (2) ActiveWords SE includes access to a more limited set of free add-in applications.
