Learn a Language on the Go. Learn to speak a new language on the go with Rosetta Stone with Audio Companion, the device that lets you continue learning a language away from your computer. The Rosetta Stone software utilizes a combination of images, text, and sound, with difficulty levels increasing as the student progresses, in order to teach various vocabulary terms and grammatical functions intuitively, without drills or translation. They call this the "Dynamic Immersion method". The goal is to teach languages the way first languages are learned.
With Rosetta Stone you can:
Learn naturally: As a child, you learned to speak instinctively by experiencing the world around you. Rosetta Stone recreates this experience through a fully immersive environment right on your computer. No translation or memorization. It has eliminated the traditional approach of using translation and grammar rules, empowering you to think in your new language. There are no flash cards, dictionaries or memorization drills. A carefully designed sequence of activities. By surrounding you with words, images and the voices of native speakers, our method lets you progress naturally from words and phrases to sentences and conversations.
Engage interactively: Unlike tapes, videos or books that passively feed you language, you’ll constantly interact with the program. The Adaptive Recall feature brings back review exercises to help you transfer what you’ve learned into your long-term memory.
Speak confidently: Step-by-step, you will gain the confidence to speak on your own. You'll develop your intuitive ability to create sentences from scratch in a conversational setting. Before long, you'll be in the middle of conversations and you'll be doing the talking! The speech-recognition technology helps you pronounce syllables, words and sentences in your new language, and provides immediate, ongoing feedback.
Have Fun: As you learn —and solve one language-learning puzzle after another—you'll experience a series of "ah-ha" moments that keep you motivated so, you'll want to keep learning more. With every step, you'll move forward and feel a sense of accomplishment.

Although the look of Windows 7 may seem to be nothing more than some polish applied liberally to the Vista Aero theme, make no mistake: this is a full replacement operating system, and more than just "Vista done right." From driver support to multitouch groundwork for the future, from better battery management to the most user-friendly interface Microsoft has ever had. Many say this is the Windows that Vista was supposed to be. Also, Windows 7 is the first major redevelopment to the GUI since Windows 95. Besides the GUI there have been major changes under the hood, and added technology. Plus, Win 7 can run on older computers unlike its predecessor Windows Vista.
The Windows 7 GUI (Graphical User Interface) has been changed in a few ways from previous versions of Windows. Instead of rectangles with the name of the program running on the taskbar, square icons are used. Below are more new features of Windows 7.
Pin - Pin programs to the taskbar. Pin files to Jump Lists. Just like tacking notes on a bulletin board, you can use pin to keep the things you need close at hand.
Snap - Size and arrange windows by simply dragging their borders to the edges of your screen. Instantly expand to full screen and back, or arrange two windows side by side or compare two files side by side with a quick drag to the edge of the screen.
Play - To Play music, photos, and videos from your PC to media devices connected to your home network. You can send media from your PC to other compatible devices in your home.
Windows Touch - Ever wish you could just point at what you want and move things around with your hand? With a touch-sensitive screen and Windows 7, you can. You can use your fingers to do more with your touch screen PC.
HomeGroup - Easily share the photos, music, and files on each of the PCs running Windows 7 on your home network. It's especially handy when you want to share a printer. This takes the headache out of sharing files, devices, and printers on a home network.
On top of all that Windows 7 is the most secure version of Windows to date. Yes there is still the UAC (User Account Control), but it isn’t as annoying and you control the level of security you want from it.
