Windows Live Writer Beta 3 Available

Microsoft has released another beta of Windows Live Writer, which adds several new features. I also noticed that Microsoft has increased the size of SkyDrive to 1GB, so I signed up for a free account.

Finally, to finish this Microsoft-centric post, I got my refurbished Black Zune 30 from Woot! today (for $99.00), and it works just fine. I installed the Zune software on my teaching laptop (which runs Vista Home Premium), and it automatically updated itself and then updated the firmware on the Zune to version 1.4. Now, I can’t wait until the new 2.1 firmware (to get the 2nd generation Zune features) is available.

One pleasant surprise is that the Zune supports RDS for the FM tuner, which allows it to display station, artist and song information on the unit. Song information is feature that I really like with XM Satellite Radio. Quite a few FM stations in the Denver metro area support RDS.
