Dell to Launch a Windows 7 based 10-inch Tablet

At a conference February 8, Dell announced the impending launch of its Windows 7 based tablet. This tablet, as CNETreports, is going to be 10-inches in size -- which is twice the size of a certain 5-inch "Tablet" Dell had tried to peddle consumers with before. This tab doesn't seem like a direct jab fun-filled devices like the iPad but will be focused to serve the needs of corporate users. 
The Windows 7 powered "Business Tablet" will be powered by an unspecified Intel processor; we wonder whether it will be the netbook-like Intel Atom grade fitted in the HP Slate 500, or the faster Core i3/i5 ULV variety as seen on the Eee Slate EP121.

This tablet will be made available by the middle of the year. Currently, in the country, MSI's WindPad 100W is a Windows 7 powered tablet that's already officially selling.

On the note of tablets, we'll also see what HP has up their sleeves as they announce the new WebOS based devices (possibly tablets) a little after midnight today.

    What’s New in CCleaner 3

    The First thing you’ll notice when you start it up is this dialog, which asks you if you’d like to intelligently scan for cookies to keep—a very useful feature so you don’t get logged out of your email clients when you run CCleaner.

    Here’s the full change list for the curious:
    • New CCleaner 64-bit native EXE.
    • New UI graphics and icons.
    • New internal scanning architecture.
    • New Drive Wiper tool screen under Tools section.
    • New Intelligent cookie keeping functionality.
