While doing research for a previous article I found a very cool and slick utility called WinAudit. This is a slick and easy to use freeware application that will tell you most everything you want to know about your PC. There is no installation required and you can even run it from a USB flash drive if you are troubleshooting another Windows system.

Being a technology geek I love to try out new tech services, programs, and hardware.  If you’re lucky or happen to know the right people you can get into some very cool beta programs.  The big companies also offer public programs for different projects they are working on.  Google Labs is definitely a geek favorite, and even Microsoft offers some cool stuff to test out through Live, Office, and Virtual labs.
