    @chippy http://bit.ly/2rpQMs interesting but leaves me hanging … what were the XP optimizations?

  3. Genghis Khent says:

    Jerry, what exactly were your XP UI optimizations? This is the first part of your video, before you transitioned to tethering with your Blackberry.

    Heyhi Reply:

    Where to download the blue dolphin UI?

    I’m assuming the same goes for the X70. I wonder how well this works for Windows 7

    Here’s another web page with info on Blue Dolphin:

    It looks like this was made for Intel’s use (and Jerry is an Intel employee), so the general public may never have access to it.

    When I got my X70 a month ago, I wasn’t happy with the Cube UI, so I ended up installing Fences:

    As a finger-friendly launcher, it suits my needs.

    He left out the – IMHO – single most useful optimisation, which is the Grab-and-Drag firefox add-on, which makes firefox behave like the finger friendly (touch) mobile browsers : https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1250
