Microsoft LifeCam Cinema
For myself, making use of a webcam does wonders. I make use of the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema mainly for two reasons. For my work and the different process involved in it, I use a webcam. The tasks for the customers include video tutorials being made and webinars with the help of the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema. For personal needs also, the webcam is being used, like for Microsoft chat with video capabilities.
The Auto Focus Feature
A feature that is really amazing is the Auto Focus feature. Therefore, no matter if any sudden movements take place or any additions appear in the picture, the auto focus gets to work. A microphone that does the task of noise cancellation is available that is of great use for me since the background noise is not heard by the other person. For help with the Microsoft chat, you may contact the respective customer support center.
Supported operating systems
The operating systems that support the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema are Windows 7, Windows Vista, Apple MacOS X 10.2 and above and Windows XP. You need not have worries regarding the device as it is backed up by a three-year warranty; so if any problems creep up during that period, you are in a safe zone.
No issues with Skype
Microsoft Windows 7
With Skype, the software works effortlessly and no problems are encountered with it when the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema is used. Other web cams do not get the perfect fit on the PC, but the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema fits perfectly. You require a hard disk space of around 1.5 GB and an optical disk drive also.
Able to capture widescreen images
4:3 is the normal aspect ratio provided generally by webcams, but widescreen images are possible with the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema. If low light is a cause of concern for you, well you do not have to worry as even in low light, the image quality is fantastic and I was really impressed with the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema. Really, I must say, hats off to the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema.

Leave a replyWindows Live games and features
The extremely popular console game from last year Dark Souls will now be available on PC according to Namco Bandai. The official release date for the game is August 24.
The Prepare to Die edition features smooth frame rates and extra resolutions along with the PVP mode. This mode allows easier organization of one-on-one battles amongst gamers. In addition, the new game has brand new content as well. “Artorias of the Abyss” will feature all new bosses that include a toothed hand, a disinterested dragon and a lion with horns and wings. These will feature Windows Live support as well.
Currently the console version of Dark Souls supports multiplayer but enforces one of its own unique regulations. Players are allowed to join each other”s games; however, the co-op and PVP components have been strictly anonymous experiences, although insufficient to break the relentless and punishing atmosphere of the game. Probably one of the most distinguishing aspects of Dark Souls is the ability to touch an opponent”s blood strains to track their final moments before they succumbed to injuries. This might be useful in planning your next step in the game, which is brutal and hardcore to say the least. This game is not for the squeamish, and requires lot of perseverance to make it through its final stages. It also happens to be the first game that disabled the Xbox 360″s chat features, which is very uncommon for online multiplayer games. This is probably to perpetuate the state of dread and caution that is required throughout if you wish to survive the relentless game.
Dark Souls to play on Windows PCs
Windows Live support for games is thus an excellent mechanism to deliver these games amid uncomfortable interfaces, lost installations and connection drops. However, some developers are sure to make tweaks to the game. Still it is expected that players do not take their tweaks online. Street Fighter IV another one among GFWL games did receive a healthy dose of mods; however, the drawback was that only unmodified clients got to fight on official servers.
Dark Soul”s online mode should function pretty much in the same manner, and it is sure to get modded to hell. However you will need to make use of games for Windows Live and a standard client to get access to its features else the experience will not be different or unique, at all.

Leave a reply Microsoft tech support
Though keyboard is not a perfect alternative for mouse, most of the actions you need to perform using a mouse can be done with your keyboard. According to the Windows tech support, knowing how to double up your keyboard to do the tasks otherwise performed by mouse in a Windows computer will help you save your time in case your mouse breaks down or suffers from any critical faults. This article attempts to describe the easiest method to program your keyboard keys to substitute mouse.
As the option to convert your keyboard to mouse is not set by default, you need to make necessary changes in the settings to enable this feature. Navigate to the option that says Make the mouse easier to use and enable the option titled Turn on mouse keys. By default, Windows converts the numpad keys into the mouse substitute. However, if you wish to use other keys on your keyboard, you can program them as well.
If you have programmed the numpad keys to use as mouse substitute, make use of the 6-9 and 1-4 keys to hover the mouse pointer to the desired direction. The keys with movement arrows will remain so without any changes. To learn how to program other keys as mouse substitute, visit the Microsoft support site or contact the Windows tech support experts.
Another important benefit of programming the keyboard keys as mouse substitute is that it offers total keyboard portability. The users are allowed to execute from different location after the programming. Though the movement keys are assigned with default actions, users can program them differently if they wish so.
The mouse buttons such as left, middle and right will also have substitute keys on the keyboard. 0, Enter and 5 keys are mapped respectively for the mouse buttons.
A frequent concern raised by some about the mouse substitute keyboard is about its ability to scroll up and down. You can use / or * keys on your numpad to scroll up or down.
In addition to these, you can use your mouse turned keyboard for various other functions like changing the speed of the mouse pointer while working on different applications.
According to experts, mapping the keyboard keys for mouse functions is highly appreciated if you are on a laptop and touch-mouse does not function. In case if you wish to avail professional assistance while mapping your keyboard, get in touch with the Windows tech support.

Leave a reply Features Of Microsoft Apps
If you have an account in Facebook, you can synchronize it with your Windows Smartphone so that you do not have to enter the contact details of your friends in the Facebook account manually. In addition to this, you can also use the feature to synchronize the photos between your Windows Smartphone and Facebook. Even though this is a great feature, a good number of Windows phone users have not been able to make use of it. This has been one of the Microsoft problems connected with the Facebook app, faced by users.
The software giant has confirmed that it is not merely an issue with a few users and has received many complaints in this regard. The company has already taken up the issue and is investigating the cause of these Microsoft problems with sync functions. The issues were first noticed last day, and the users who encountered the error received the error message that read 83CF1104. Joe Belfore, who is the head of Windows Phone, has tweeted that the company is presently working on the issue and hopes to fix it soon.
Microsoft Phone OS
Most users who find issues with Facebook synchronizing say that they do not find any other Microsoft problems with their Windows phone. That is, all other functions are working fine except for the synchronization features. You can still update your status bar or use the news integration features fine. The major issues are associated with the chat functions and the contact images in the program. It is expected that the sync issues could become a major concern for the users who depend on this feature to view and update their contact list.
This is not the first time that Microsoft problems have engulfed Windows Phone. It was only a few weeks earlier that we saw users facing troubles with Twitter integration. The problem occurred due to changes in the Twitter back-end, and it resulted in the Phone downloading profile images numerous times. The issue created major troubles for the users as their mobile data was being used up at a faster rate. It also gave many troubles to the users who were active with their profiles.
As most of the Smartphone users now rely on contacts synced from Facebook accounts, users are expecting a quick fix from Microsoft. Let us wait for a few more days for an update on the issue.
