There Are Two Kinds of People in This World, Artist Illustrates a Few of Them
Two Kinds of People

Windows 9 Start Menu Matches Theme By Altering Color

windows9 theme 607x640When it comes to Microsoft’s upcoming operating system, Windows 9, much has been said about it already – and until something official is revealed through the mouth of Microsoft via a press release or statement, all of them will remain as just rumors, and nothing else. Like any other good rumor out there, they can be pretty difficult to put down, since rumors are as juicy as a nice slab of steak. Well, it seems that there is yet another leak which concerns the Windows 9, targeting the Start menu this time around.

Apparently, the new Windows 9 Start menu is capable of matching the different backgrounds of the wallpaper that you are utilizing at the moment by changing its color, just like how a chameleon would. A very good example would be the image on top, where the Start menu alters its color depending on the kind of background chosen.

This might be seen by some as a tiny personalization step for the operating system, but it does have its appeal as not everyone loves the standard set up, and with the amount of customization going on these days in our smartphone and tablet interfaces, it pays for Microsoft to throw in something like that in Windows 9.

Well, one is now able to watch the latest Hollywood blockbusters and hit TV episodes in the blink of an eye thanks to Video Unlimited on Windows and Mac OS PCs, and this is achieved via Sony Entertainment Network’s new web video player.

All that you need to do is head on to the Sony Entertainment Network online store, before you make the choice of renting or purchasing a video, and picking “Watch Now.” The in-browser web player window will then boot up, providing you with easy access to playback controls, not to mention the ability to enjoy a full screen mode.

In addition, one is also able to watch owned and previously rented content via the “My Videos” section that can be accessed in the Account Settings.
