Join us for the show live each Thursday at 8pmC/9E at http://theAverageGuy.tv/live.
What we Got for Christmas:
Christian’s Beast Build:
It was the final podcast for 2010 and we partied like it was 1999! Hopefully we can revive the talk about WHS version 1 a little bit. We also go over Jim’s Drobo posts and what we got for Christmas! Next week is CES so we talk a little bit about Vegas and the new CES 2011 live feed page as well. Enjoy and have a Happy New Year! CES 2011 Live Page

Over the past few weeks we’ve been covering the different offerings available in Windows Live Essentials 2011. Another program we’ll take a look at this week is Live Photo Gallery 2011. Photo Gallery is a set of tools for organizing, sharing, touching up you photos and publishing them online. It has a lot of features not included in previous versions such as the ability to create Panoramas, movies, slideshows, and actually has an interesting search feature using Facial Recognition.
Install & Setup Live Photo Gallery 2011
Installation is simple and very similar to any of the other Live Essentials programs you may have installed already. Right-click on the Windows Live Installer file and click install as Administrator.
Remember that you aren’t required to install everything in the Live Essentials Suite…only what you want.
As we mentioned in our previous post about Live Movie Maker, the two install together.
You’ll see a progress bar and dialog box while installation takes place. The amount of time it takes will vary between systems and your mileage may vary.
When installation is complete, a restart shouldn’t be required and you just need to close out of the installation window and begin using it.
If you have an Android or iPhone, your are getting a late Christmas present from the makers of the RunKeeper App. It’s FREE to download in the month of January. Up until now there as been a scaled down free version and a fee based Pro version. Both are now free for the taking. You can find both in the app store for each phone.
I use RunKeeper and have really liked it. The free version can be a little inaccurate on the mileage at times, but the rest of the application works great. It will also auto tweet right to Twitter for ya!
The Pro Version comes with audio cues, customized interval workouts, integrated RunKeeper FitnessClasses and best of all…NO ADS!
There is more info on RunKeeper at http://runkeeper.com
