Is Windows Easy Transfer in Windows 7 a bit difficult?

In my capacity as man with finger in more than one editorial pie (or freelance journalist I suppose), I have been getting some feedback from Windows 7 users that the data movement wizard Windows Easy Transfer is, when using Windows 7, actually sometimes a little difficult.This tool, which I understand has been around since Vista if not before, is said to allow the user to transfer personal files, e-mail, data, files, media and settings from an old computer to a new one.

You can now pick up a 16GB SanDisk microSDHC for $100

SanDisk emailed me yesterday and told me that their huge capacity 16GB microSDHC card was now available for US$99.99. SanDisk is the first card maker to get cards with this high capacity out in stores. They promptly sent me a card to evaluate with my latest mobile devices that arrived a couple hours ago. I quickly popped it into my new BlackBerry Bold, T-Mobile G1, and Palm Treo Pro devices to check compatibility and ability to store captured images and play music and video files.

Nokia brings "desktop search" to mobile devices

I LOVE desktop search tools like Google Desktop and Windows Desktop Search and remember talking with Microsoft about bringing this search functionality to mobile devices. Microsoft has a integrated search tool in Windows Mobile devices, but it has never been a very strong utility. I just read the Nokia press release announcing the release of Nokia Mobile Search that brings powerful search functionality from the desktop to the device. Nokia Mobile Search allows you to search emails, text messages, calendar entries, videos, music files, and more. Nokia Mobile Search indexes your compatible device for faster search results. I could not find any information on whether external storage flash cards or hard drives, like the 4 and 8 GB drives on N91 devices, are indexed. I would think this is where the real power of device search would be as storage cards get larger and larger in capacity with more and more files being stored on them.

Effective Exchange Server storage policies

I've seen many small to large corporations embrace decentralized storage policies to let the employees deal with their own Exchange Server storage in the form of PST files which is usually caused by lack of storage capacity at the Exchange server. But does this really solve a problem or does it move the problem elsewhere? In my experience, the problem isn't just moved but it's amplified many times.
