The SUPRSEKRT windows 7 definitely-not-a-service-pack-wink-wink for enterprise users, which is basically a monster hotfix rollup for GDR release users who want LDR release fixes. Make absolutely certain you have all device drivers updated to newest before pulling the trigger on this.

Convenience rollup update for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1
Apparently a bug with this patch nukes VMware VMXNET3 adapters by replacing them with an identical network card but returned to default settings. Which means any static IP servers just went DHCP. Plus a VBscript to fix this seems lame...

'Virtual Smartphone' Used as Both Android Machine, iPhone -- Tech-On!
The translation for this article sucks. Seems like an extension of earlier Intel research. Basically, using a lighter Android OS on a cellphone, you connect via VPN to a dedicated virtual machine Android OS instance on a cloud server. They claim lower battery consumption on the real hardware and hardware limitation independence because the VM android can be provisioned with CPU and memory on an adhoc basis. I assume they are basically using VNC with a dedicated return channel to send serial data from accelerometers and other onboard sensors, plus some remote filesystem mounting tricks to transfer local files in the cellphone to the cloud VM. The iPhone angle is that a similar VNC-esqe app on the iPhone could provide similar accessibility to the cloud android VM, and the reverse case of having a virtual iPhone or Windows Mobile instance (though the article points out licensing prevents having virtual instances of iOS and Windows Mobile/Windows Phone 7)

This will remove the Windows 7 XP mode CPU lock that prevented users with laptops/desktops that are not equipped with a VT capable CPU from running XP mode. Basically it is restoring software emulation that wasn't ready in time for the Windows 7 release.

Slashdot Your Rights Online Story | Anti-Piracy Windows 7 Update Phones Home Quarterly
This is real bad. Easy DDoS of a company by a disgruntled employee or someone who was fired via light pirating of the company keys. As far as I'm concerned, if it was valid at install, it should remain valid. Punish only those who come later (AKA the current system), because the odds of them pirating are higher.
