Quite sometime back we had posted leaked screenshots of Wave 4 which included screens for Windows Live Writer 2010 and Windows Live Messenger 2010. A new batch of screenshots has now emerged, courtesy of geekSmack, which shows off Windows Live Writer 2010, Windows Live Photo Gallery 2010 and Windows Live Mail 2010, which will be included in Wave 4.
It is definitely good to see that Microsoft has continued to develop Windows Live Writer and Windows Live Mail, which are actually pretty good and available as free downloads for everyone.
Out here, many of us prefer to use Windows Live Writer because of its ease of use and absolutely awesome features. We certainly look forward to Microsoft releasing Wave 4 to the general public. However, we will try out best to get our hands on it before that if we can.
What do you think about the new features in WLW 2010 and Wave 4 in general?
Samsung Bada is a mobile operating system being developed by Samsung Electronics. It is designed for use in smartphones. Its name is derived from the Korean word for ocean. The first mobile phone handsets based on bada are expected to be displayed in the first half of 2010 and to go on sale in the second half of 2010. Samsung also plans to open a bada application store.

Neowin has posted some screenshots of Windows Live Messenger 2010 and Windows Live Writer 2010, both of the products are freely available for download from Microsoft, however, these screenshot are from Wave 4, a bundle of applications from Microsoft which will be available for downloads sometime soon.
As you can see from the screenshot above, Windows Live Messenger 2010, focuses more on Social networking and delivers updates from your friends in the sidebar. This is no surprise as even Yahoo Messenger 10 has more focus on social updates.
What is even more interesting is the new Windows Live Writer 2010 to be included in Wave 4 (click for larger screenshot).
The new version completely does away with the old menu and introduces ribbon menu which is popular in Office products including Office 2010. I am very excited about WLW 2010 as it looks like a perfect tool for created rich text posts and also has ease of use written all over it.
What do you think of the new Wave 4 products? Do they look interesting to you?

Office 2010 technical preview was released sometime back but Microsoft has still been working on newer versions of the next generation Office product.
Turns out that a new beta of Microsoft Office 2010 Mondo with build 14.0.4417.1000 has hit the streets before Microsoft even told users about it, though there are not many changes from the original technical preview it is still creating quite a lot of buzz.
If you are wondering what the new build looks like here are some leaked screenshots of Microsoft Office 2010 Mondo Build 14.0.4417.1000.
As you can see there is nothing exceptionally different in the screenshots, however there might be several things that might have been done under the hood.
Thinking of downloading the leaked copy? Well we would rather wait till Microsoft officially makes an update available since we are already using the technical preview of Office 2010.

Update: Engadget has confirmed that the screenshots are fake.
Before even the news of Google launching a operating system could settle down, Engadget has acquired a set of leaked screenshots of the Google Chrome OS.
There is nothing much to give away from these screenshots and these may be completely faked and photo shopped, however the leaker claims that these images were shot when a Google rep was demoing the OS to a Acer rep, however we are pretty sure that there will be more sets of screenshots leaked in the near future, we will keep an eye for those.
