    @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.

    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
