Microsoft has announced Touch Wall, Engadget reports, a touchable electronic device mounted on a wall. It will be a great piece of hardware for web applications like Google Maps. It looks like it’s going to be used for the public and not private. It looks pretty neat, but is it worth the money? I say no, it’s a big piece of flash that costs too much for too little. Microsoft isn’t making the right choices so far. Vista is a failure, they’re trying to copy Apple with their ‘simplicity’ with the new Office Suite, the Zune, and this new TouchWall that they just announced, and quite frankly, it’s not doing too well. Well that’s my take on it, for now goodbye.

OK, I know a lot of Ubuntu users are baffled by .bin files, so I’m gonna show you how to install them. It’s actually very easy, I will be using Print Screen to show you step by step instructions on how to install them. I will use Google Earth as an example.
1. First, download the file (I choose Google Earth)
2. Then open up a command line and “cd” into the directory in which the downloaded file is in.
3. Afterwards type the following command:
chmod +x *filename*.bin && ./*filename*.bin
4. It will run a script and open up a GUI interface setup, just follow it and you’re done! It will put an icon on your desktop.
