Welcome to the WrapUp by CyberNet. This is a collection of news stories, downloads, and tips that we have collected over the last few days, but never got around to writing about.

One of the features in Windows 7/Vista that I use quite regularly is the ability to click on the time in the System Tray to reveal a month-to-month calendar. The only problem is that some of the systems I use on a regular basis are stilling running Windows XP, but in situations like that I fallback to a solution I've been using for years... a customized wallpaper for the desktop.
Are you a big fan of having images of Earth set as your desktop wallpaper? If so then Desktop Earth is definitely something you'll want to checkout. This free app will rotate your desktop wallpaper on an interval that you specify, and things such as the sunlight will be reflected across the map based upon the time of day.
Over the weekend I decided to download Windows 7 Build 7264, which is the latest build to have been leaked. This was considered to be an RTM escrow build, which meant that this would have been the version that gets shipped given that Microsoft didn't find any show-stopper bugs.
We've shown you some tools in the past that lets you automatically rotate your desktop backgrounds (like this one), but the sheer simplicity of Wallpaper Juggler is what makes it so great. Basically what it does is download wallpapers from InterfaceLIFT and WallpaperStock, and you can choose to have it grab only the most popular wallpapers.
One of the things that I thought was pretty cool with my Mac was that it lets you rotate your desktop backgrounds at set intervals using images on your computer. That got me wondering what kind of solutions are available for Windows users that do something similar, and what I happened to stumble upon is a real gem.
This past week, Ryan and I found ourselves looking for a new background image for our computers . We were both using a winter scene and got sick of looking at it when we have our own winter scene right outside our window (we got over 15 inches of snow this past week!).
Multiple monitor setups are becoming increasingly abundant these days, and I for one couldn't imagine not having two monitors. I have a 24" Dell (1920x1200 resolution) and a 15" laptop screen (1680x1050 resolution) that I place side-by-side as seen here.
I just saw a post over at the Hive mentioning that the Windows Vista Ultimate site posted some new desktop backgrounds freely available to everyone.
As an update to the post last week on Amazing Windows Vista Wallpapers, you can now download all of them in high resolution.
The default wallpapers that come with Window’s Vista are without a doubt some of the best that have ever been offered with an operating system. And what’s more amazing is that a portion of them came from amateur photographers.
