    If only this had been the launch price Now that Amazon has right-priced the unlocked version of the Fire Phone to $200—an incredible reduction of $450—is it time to reconsider the handset? I purchased one to find out, and while I do think you should be a bit leery of the Fire Phone for a variety of reasons, it's hard to argue with such a high-end phone being sold for such a reasonable price. read more

    Fait Acompli? I didn't write at all yesterday, on Thanksgiving, which is actually pretty unusual. But I did spend much of the day testing a mobile app called Acompli on iPhone, iPad and Android. Microsoft has apparently purchased this company and its app, though that hasn't officially been announced yet. And I can see why they're interested: Acompli is nothing less than Outlook for Android and iOS, and an answer to the mess Microsoft has created on those platforms. read more

    Today we are adding functionality to Enterprise Mode for Internet Explorer 11 as part of the November update, expanding the Enterprise Mode Site List introduced in April to give customers a new way to mitigate Web app compatibility issues. A new docMode section of the list enables IT to specify the document mode in which a specific Web site should load, without changing a single line of code on the site itself. While the original Enterprise Mode provided great compatibility for enterprises on IE8, this new capability will help enterprises stay up to date regardless of the version of IE…

    Did you know Huawei ranks third-place in global smartphone shipments this year? I didn’t. The company has been expanding its presence in the consumer smartphone market for a few years now and it looks like the bet is beginning to pay off. The company’s latest flagship is the Huawei Ascend Mate7. Don’t let the name fool you, it’s neither made-for-Australia or seven-inches big. What it is, is a massive 6″ Android phone with massive specs to match. Octo-core processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB onboard storage, fingerprint sensor, Category 6 LTE, IPS-NEO display, 13MP camera,…

This morning it gave media the chance to try out some new unreleased products including the Gear S, Galaxy Note Edge, Note 4 and Gear VR which the public will also be able to preview at the store.

  • Review: Bellroy Note Sleeve “slim wallet”

    A little owl banner ad has been stalking me around the web challenging me to slim my wallet. Their ad targeting is incredible since my wallet is indeed uncomfortably bulgy so I was eager to find out exactly how much a difference just a wallet can make. The people behind the ad is an Australian company called Bellroy. These guys pride themselves on creating slim wallets and even own slimyourwallet.com. The idea is simple, their wallet is specially designed to stack cards using less room than other wallets. Bellroy doesn’t believe in the one-size-fits-all strategy. Their range of six…

    I was browsing Apple’s new website today when something grabbed my attention. One of the screenshots on an iOS 8 page had an Australian address. “Oh that’s cute” I thought. As a designer, I understand the pain and effort localisation requires and I always appreciate the extra attention to detail, especially when it comes to localising bitmap images. I quickly started to wonder just how much localisation does Apple actually do for the Australian website (which caters to just only 0.33% of the world’s total population). So I docked the AU and US sites side by side…

    As someone who enjoys paying a lot of attention to detail and user experience, I’m always delighted by “they thought of that” moments when I come across it. This one took me 9 years to notice. A couple of days ago I was in a 2005 BMW 3-series and I noticed something different about the climate system. It’s winter here in Australia so the temperature was set to the highest and the car was obviously warm, but there wasn’t any hot air blowing out of the face vents. I was slightly puzzled, did a blower stop working? I toggled the face vent override button and it…

  • Use Remote PowerShell to Manage Your Azure PaaS Compute Instances

    Greg Oliver (DPE)
    28 Nov 2014 | 4:35 pm
    The Windows Remote Management (WinRM) service implements the WS-Management protocol in Windows.  Many remote management tasks are made possible with WinRM, as I.T. administrators are well aware.  There are both command line and PowerShell variants on how to accomplish most of these tasks. But what does this have to do with Azure web roles and Azure worker roles? Imagine for a moment that your API is running in an Azure web role.  You just updated it, and for some odd reason it’s not working right.  But you’ve seen this before.  The AppPool needs to be…

  • How to delete a problematic External User account from a SharePoint Online site Users List.

    As this issue keeps showing up again and again in support requests, I thought it is worth mentioning here. The problem is that the External User account gets, somehow, associated with a different UPN in the Users List of SharePoint Online or gets corrupted somehow. Either way the first thing to do is to find it and get rid of it so that we can recreate a health account in the Users List. I had like to mention that I have seen cases where the Administrator has executed the command Get-SPOExternalUser in the Power Shell Administration console but the External User account…

    The gentle start to a rant... In any software system, especially but certainly not just in the cloud, things can and will go horribly wrong in a variety of ways given enough time/opportunity. Some of those are unanticipated disasters: bugs, floods, hurricanes, etc. But a good number of those are just tradeoffs that are consciously made by the developers of the system in order to make other gains: a NoSQL system that anticipates some data inconsistency or even data loss to gain scale/performance, a cloud system that periodically reboots your VM's to gain automatic/unmanaged updates and…

The company bought FolderShare back in November of 2005, and has been trying to get file syncing right ever since.

It looks like we should have another new build in our hands soon, and that there may be lots of worn out “refresh” keys in the meantime. Stay tuned!

  • Integration components: How we determine Windows Update applicability

    Ben Armstrong [MSFT]
    24 Nov 2014 | 8:48 am
    Last week we began distributing integration components through Windows Update.  In the November rollup, integration components were made available to Windows Server 2012/2008R2 virtual machines along with Windows 8/7 virtual machines running on Windows Technical Preview hosts. Ben wrote a great blog post outlining how to update the integration components. Using Windows Update to apply integration components brought to light an interesting set of challenges with our standard servicing tools.  Unlike other Windows Updates, integration components are tied to the host version not just…

    Starting in Windows Technical Preview, Hyper-V integration components will be delivered directly to virtual machines using Windows Update. Integration components (also called integration services) are the set of synthetic drivers which allow a virtual machine to communicate with the host operating system.  They control services ranging from time sync to guest file copy.  We've been talking to customers about integration component installation and update over the past year to discover that they are a huge pain point during the upgrade process.  Historically, all new versions of…

  • Microsoft is Opening Windows Store to Businesses

    25 Nov 2014 | 9:45 am
    Bigger than a Start menu When Microsoft first announced Windows 10 back in early October, it did so at an event that was billed as being focused on businesses. But that wasn't really the case, and most of the short launch event just highlighted some of the user interface tweaks that will make Windows great on traditional PCs again. Since then, however, Microsoft has opened up about its plans a bit more. And one of the big changes coming in Windows 10 is that the firm will allow businesses to customize Windows Store and manage the delivery of apps to their users. read more

Microsoft launched a federal lawsuit against the US Internal Revenue Service, accusing the agency of not fulfilling its legal obligations under the Freedom of Information Act. Apparently, the IRS has hired an outside firm that specializes in litigation to examine the software giant's tax returns, and Microsoft had been seeking documentation explaining the terms of its contract with the IRS. read more

    If you have ever worked with DOS or Linux before, you’ll be familiar with the “tree” command that recursively lists all the files and folders in the current directory in a tree like format. Most of us prefer visual navigation through Windows Explorer or Mac Finder but a unique advantage with the tree command is that you can save and print the directory structure. Tree Command for your Google Drive I have written a little Google Script that is much like running “tree” but against your Google Drive. It creates a hierarchical tree diagram of all the files and…
  • Who Tweeted It First on Twitter?

    Amit Agarwal

    Twitter has recently opened up their archives making it possible for anyone to search the entire Twitter database ever since the first tweet was published in 2006. This time-sorted archive of billions to tweets will be extremely helpful for research and more so when you are trying to find out who broke the news first on Twitter or who the original source of a quote is. To give you an example, if you want to know who said something first on Twitter, say the iPhone, you can head to Twitter’s advanced search, choose a range of dates and dig through the old tweets. If a match is found, you…

Whether you upload a file, move a file from one folder to another or change the sharing permissions, your actions will get logged. This is especially useful for users who have shared files in their Drive that can be edited by external users. The Activity Stream is however not available inside mobile apps and you’d have to log into the Google Drive website website daily to see what files and folders have changed recently.

  • How to Tell if Google Considers your Website as Mobile Friendly

    Amit Agarwal

    You can no longer afford to not have a mobile-friendly website that isn’t readable or usable on a mobile phone. That’s because Google is now clearly marking websites (screenshot) in mobile search results that it considers mobile friendly and if that tag isn’t getting displayed around your content, your website may see a drop in mobile traffic. Responsive design is definitely the way to go but will that be enough. How do you confirm if your web pages are considered mobile friendly by Google? There are quite a few options.

    Amit Agarwal

    The Learn to Code movement, with the backing of the likes of Obama and Bill Gates, is picking up momentum worldwide and that is actually a very good thing as even basic programming skills can have a major impact. If you can teach yourself how to write code, you will gain a competitive edge over your peers, you can think more algorithmically and thus can tackle problems more efficiently. Don’t just download the latest app, help redesign it. Don’t just play on your phone, program it. — Obama. There’s no reason why shouldn’t know the basics of coding. You can automate…

It facilitates the discovery of services by mapping business process to services for the agile implementation in small iterations:A business process (BP) is identified as an input (e.g. marked in bold and red color in Figure 2) from a pool or repository of business processes that need to be implemented in terms of software services in the agile iteration X (depending on situational circumstances, a large business process may span multiple iterations or a small number of business processes may fit in one iteration).The…

    3 Sep 2014 | 10:28 am
    Working effectively means deciding the relative priorities of different tasks. Obvious perhaps, and of course you may say some things are clearly more important than others. But it is very easy to underestimate just how much this concept influences what you need to do, indeed just how much it influences your inherent effectiveness.Many years ago, the Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto recognized the truism that carries his name and that is now more commonly called the 80/20 rule. It links cause and effect in a ratio and, although this is not represented absolutely accurately in real life, an…

  • TOP TEN LEADERSHIP TECHNIQUES FOR BUILDING HIGH-PERFORMING TEAMS

    3 Nov 2012 | 9:57 am
    Building High-Performing Teams1. Define a very clear picture of the future - a vision for the team. This is crucial, because teams search desperately for specific targets. Consider the old expression: "If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there." Journeys without a clear destination leave groups feeling flat and lost. Keeping teams informed on where they're headed and how best to get there means leaders must be prepared to acknowledge and adapt to changes in operational conditions and even objectives. Leaders cannot sit back and watch, but instead must create and…
  • Using Windows Internet Name Service

    27 Oct 2012 | 7:58 am
    WINS is a service that resolves computer names to IP addresses. Using WINS, the computer name COMPUTER84, for example, can be resolved to an IP address that enables computers on a Microsoft network to find one another and transfer information. WINS is needed to support pre–Windows 2000 systems and older applications that use NetBIOS over TCP/IP, such as the .NET command-line utilities. If you don’t have pre–Windows 2000 systems or applications on the network, you don’t need to use WINS.WINS works best in client/server environments in which WINS clients send single-label (host) name…

  • PowerShell Problem Solver: Searching the Registry to Find Installed Software

    Jeff Hicks
    26 Nov 2014 | 7:33 am
    In the first part of this series we looked at using WMI to identify installed applications. While I believe that is an effective method, it can be painfully slow. Fortunately, there is another path to explore and that is by searching the registry. Most applications that are installed via an installation package will record uninstalled information in the registry. There’s no guarantee of knowing if something you find in the registry is in fact still installed, and of course, not every installed application will record itself. But let’s look at how you could query this information…
  • Reduce VDI costs by Enabling Data Deduplication on Windows Server 2012 R2

    25 Nov 2014 | 10:22 am
    Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) might not be the panacea that Gartner, Forrester and their ilk preached it to be five years ago, but VDI still has a valuable role to play. Unfortunately, VDI is very expensive, and that cost increases when we need to deploy personal (non-pooled) virtual machines. In this article, I will show you how you can reduce that cost by enabling deduplication on Windows Server 2012 R2 storage to reduce the cost of providing fast storage for this kind of VDI virtual machine.

    I had a spot of trouble with my laptop these past few days. Now that it’s been repaired, I have to keep a very close eye on how much the battery is charged. Before this happened, all I ever needed to care about was if my battery was plugged in and charging. Since it hadn’t bothered me in the past (and this is about 4 years worth of past), I really had zero ideas as to how to monitor battery percentage levels without expanding too much effort. There was the obvious risk that I’d just forget to check how much charge my battery had left, or how full it was. Fortunately, both…
