« Fox journalist says 'Terrorism ok in Paris' | Main | Dell isn't listening »

I guess this is one place Macs have it over Windows. I watched the video, launched the default screen capture utility, and captured the same image with no problem. I remain a Windows devotee, but I do have to say: How 'bout that?

Erik van Roekel


Here's a solution for you screencapture problem. It did work for me.

Open Windows Media Player. Click Tools -> Options.
Choose tab Performance
Click Advanced
There's an option Use Overlays
Unmark this option
Click Ok
Click Ok
That's it.
Printscreen works perfect on my system after this change.

I agree channel 9 is an awesome communication tool but thought the Steve Balmer interview was one of the weakest things I've seen on it. Compare it to the recent interviews with product teams for Office XML, MSN Virtual Earth or earlier ones on Flight Sim and Windows Automotive and you see a real communication revolution. To me Steve's interview was "corp-speak" repackaged. The product guys show real passion.


That's a great tip, Erik, and it works. Thanks!

So, Shel, it can be done on Windows machines ;)


Interesting view, Robin. I've alos watched a nunber of those other video interviews you mention. I agree, they're good.

But I didn't think Steve Ballmer's interview was 'corp-speak' at all. It seemed pretty natural to me. A good example of spontaneity, informality and genuineness.

Robin Capper

I thought the delivery was natural, refreshing even, but the message was the usual corporate line. Did you really learn anything new?
