    A few weeks ago I reviewed the new Lumia 640 Windows Phone which I was really impressed with considering the price point, but my daily phone is a 6 inch Lumia 1520 and the 640 felt a little small for me. So the new Lumia 640XL is much more my type of phone. The Lumia 640XL is a large phone, it has a 5.7 inch screen but isn’t particularly thick at 9mm thick. Despite its size it feels an elegant phone to use and feels great in the hand. The removable back has a soft feel to it with curved edges and a bump on the back for the 13MP rear camera. The Lumia 640XL design is one of the devices…

    Web browser media experiences have advanced significantly in recent years, from the first releases of HTML5 media, through the subsequent additions of Media Source Extensions for adaptive streaming and Encrypted Media Extensions for content protection.  And formats have been similarly advanced by the development of MPEG DASH and Common Encryption (CENC).  These important specifications offered the potential for interoperable, plug-in free web video.  We referred to the resulting experience as Professional Quality Video when we first shipped support for these specs in Internet Explorer 11…

  • Using Chakra for Scripting Applications across Windows 10

    Microsoft Edge Team
    18 May 2015 | 10:00 am
    In Windows 10, the Chakra JavaScript engine powers Microsoft Edge and Windows applications written in HTML/CSS/JS. However with JavaScript’s increasing popularity in beyond-the-browser scenarios, developers have been requesting to host the Chakra engine outside the browser to enable JavaScript programmability in their native/managed applications across the client and the server. Starting in Windows 8.1/IE11, Chakra added support for a new set of public hosting APIs called the JavaScript Runtime (JSRT) APIs, which shipped as part of the Windows SDK. While these APIs allowed hosting of Chakra…

  • Entering the cone of silence with Bose QC25 noise-cancelling headphones

    Long Zheng
    15 May 2015 | 2:46 am
    I listen to a lot of podcasts, audiobooks and music on my daily commutes. I have been content with generic headphones for as long as I’ve owned phones and media players. I’ve always thought noise-cancelling headphones were a luxury only for long international flights, it never occurred to me just how big of a difference they can make even for a simple train trip. I got my ears on a pair of Bose QuietComfort 25 Acoustic Noise Cancelling headphones for review a couple of weeks ago and now I can’t go back. The QC25 is like having my own portable cone of silence at the flick of…
  • Hands-on with the Sea-Doo Spark: the more fun and less cost jetski

    Long Zheng
    22 Feb 2015 | 2:19 pm
    I haven’t had so much fun and muscle-aches reviewing anything before. I don’t normally review jetskis but I couldn’t pass on the opportunity to check out the Sea-Doo Spark, a new affordable entry-level jetski half the price of most personal watercrafts on the market. Don’t let the size and price fool you though, it’s as much adrenaline rushing fun as the big brother, if not a little bit more. I’ve actually owned a Sea-Doo GTX 215 jetski for about 2 years. The Spark caught my attention because you could buy two for price of a bigger one, and jetskis are…
  • Microsoft .NET’s JPEG encoder makes crappy JPEGs

    Microsoft .NET has been making quite a bit of headway in the developer community recently with both the open source efforts and the upcoming ASP.NET 5 modern web framework. With so much attention on making .NET a “hip” platform (and hopefully breaking into the startup ecosystem), I would like to draw attention to a very frustrating problem that I hope the .NET team can address, .NET produces pretty poor quality JPEGs. Now if this were some obscure .NET function that hardly anyone uses I wouldn’t care as much, but JPEGs are an integral part of most desktop, mobile softwares…
  • Escaping my first escape room: a real life point and click adventure

    Escape room games seems to be popping up everywhere around the world. In Melbourne alone there are at least half a dozen companies now offering one or more puzzle rooms. Some appear to be horror themed while most take the premise of a detective story. Recently I was invited by Escape Hunt in Melbourne to check out what the hype around escape rooms was all about. When you think about it, escape rooms are kind of weird. You voluntarily pay money to go inside an enclosed space with the sole purpose of trying to come back out. Having said that, for the same reason why “escape the…

    I haven’t been so excited about watches since the last time I wore a watch about 15 years ago was when all the cool kids in school had one. Since then I have found it hard to justify a small obstruction on my wrist for the value of reading time at a moment’s notice or the materialistic symbol of fashion and prestige. That is until I could read my email and Twitter messages on my arm. I was finally able to get my hands on two highly anticipated round Android Wear smartwatches last week, the Motorola Moto 360 and the LG G Watch R. I put down my iPhone and dived head first into the…

For Example, once clicked on ‘Publish All’ or ‘Publish Selected’ Excel goes to ‘not responding’ stage. This behavior gives an impression that the Publish action was not successful or it is abruptly hung. Cause: Behind the scenes, Excel is designed to automatically perform the ‘Refresh all’ action after completing ‘Publish All’ or ‘Publish Selected’ task.

  • When to use Hyper-V Dynamic Memory versus Runtime Memory Resize

    sarah_cooley[msft]
    26 May 2015 | 2:30 pm
    Starting in Windows 10/Windows Server Technical Preview, Hyper-V allows you to resize virtual machine memory without shutting down the virtual machine.  You might be thinking, “Hyper-V already has dynamic memory… what is this about?”.  I get a lot of questions about why you would use memory resize if enabling dynamic memory already automatically adds or removes memory to meet only the virtual machine's needs.  To answer this, I’d like to tell a story about when I asked a similar question of my college roommate.    Are all wrenches the…

  • Add Related Posts to WordPress without Affecting Page Speed

    Amit Agarwal
    16 May 2015 | 6:29 am
    It is recommended that you include Related Posts on your blog pages as they help decrease the bounce rate of your site and are good from the SEO perspective. That’s because when you publish a new article, the old content, that was previously hiding in the archives, shows up in the list of related posts and thus gets fresh exposure to both human visitors and search engines. Matt Cutts, in 2010 when Google search results were a collection of 10 blue links, recommended using related posts and the advice is still relevant today in the age on Penguins and Pandas.

You create a template for the tweet, specify a list of Twitter users and the app will take care of the rest. The Twitter Merge app, like Gmail Mail Merge, also runs inside a Google Spreadsheet but instead of emails, this one allows you to send customized tweets and DMs in bulk.

  • Microsoft Lumia 640XL review, big phone on small budget

    Ian Dixon
    29 May 2015 | 7:16 am
    A few weeks ago I reviewed the new Lumia 640 Windows Phone which I was really impressed with considering the price point, but my daily phone is a 6 inch Lumia 1520 and the 640 felt a little small for me. So the new Lumia 640XL is much more my type of phone. The Lumia 640XL is a large phone, it has a 5.7 inch screen but isn’t particularly thick at 9mm thick. Despite its size it feels an elegant phone to use and feels great in the hand. The removable back has a soft feel to it with curved edges and a bump on the back for the 13MP rear camera. The Lumia 640XL design is one of the devices…

    Windows Media Center has long been an enthusiast’s favorite with a strong and loyal community of users that have been using the system for years. However Windows 10 will not feature the Media Center at all and this has upset many enthusiasts. Microsoft say the reason for this is their metrics show very low usage counts, which could be explained by Media Center being a chargeable option for Windows and not just the use base based moving on. As I had said before if you already have a Windows Media Center system running on Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 then you can continuing use it, you…

    28 May 2015 | 12:00 am
    Welcome to our 501st podcast where we talk about the ongoing development of Windows 10. We talk about tablet mode and screen size issues, ask what has happened to the “all apps” button and wonder how far along the desktop build is compared to the phone builds? We also ask if the Windows Insider Program is really having an impact on Windows 10 development or is it more of a PR exercise. We talk about Cortana coming to iOS and Android and Xbox Music going cross platform with OneDrive streaming and Windows 10’s new phone companion apps. We also talk Microsoft Band, Lumia…

    Michael Simmons
    29 May 2015 | 10:50 am
    SharePoint is one technology that has its fair share of configuration points, and a common point of confusion is around site collection ownership. In this article, I’m going to look at the role of the site collection owner and explain why it might not be the best practice to let farm administrators assert their authority over site collections. Should You List Farm Administrators as the Site Collection Owner? A common question is whether farm administrators should also be listed as site collection owners. You might see this type of set up in smaller environments or new SharePoint…

    One of Microsoft’s best kept secrets that was announced at Microsoft Ignite 2015 was Microsoft Azure Stack. In this article, I’ll explain what we know about this cloud solution for Hyper-V. I met with members of the Azure Stack product team at Ignite with some detailed questions, and I received some unusual responses. To be clear, it wasn’t that the team was trying to be uncooperative. Microsoft decided to start talking about Azure Stack very early in its product lifecycle, but there were some things that they couldn’t talk about, as not everything is set in stone…

    Mozilla Firefox web browser now comes with built-in Digital Rights Management (DRM) so that users can play DRM-protected HTML5 video/audio without the need of any additional plug-ins. Before the release of Firefox 38, users were unable to play any DRM-protected HTML5 video and audio directly.

    Personal assistants are fast becoming part of desktop and mobile operating systems. We’ve seen Siri, Cortana, and Google Now and they all seem impressive in their own right.

    Managing a music library takes time and effort. Unless you start out with the mindset to keep things organized, you will eventually end up with some cleaning up to do later on. The clean-up might be time-consuming if you need to update the ID3 tags or it might be simple like finding album art and adding it to your music files. If you use Windows Media Player or the Music app (Windows 8 & 10), here’s how you can add album art to a music file and update its ID3 information without needing any extra apps.

  • Create Screencasts And Upload Them Directly To YouTube [Windows]

    Fatima Wahab
    18 May 2015 | 11:39 am
    Screencasting tools are either expensive or they are terribly limited when it comes to recording time. Free apps are rare to come by and often they will be low on features if they aren’t limiting the length of the video or adding a watermark. TinyTake is a free app for Windows that, among many other things, lets you record a screencast upto 120 minutes (that’s two hours, folks!). The catch? You start out with a five minute limit and can unlock longer recording lengths by sharing the app with a friend. Share it with 75 people and you unlock the 120 minute length. Once you’ve…

For Android users there is a lot to look forward to. Firefox 38 now has Material design, allows you to send a tab to any one of your…
  • Create A Mirrored Encrypted Folder And Sync New Files To It [Windows]

    Cloud back-ups have become very common with the increasing number of services that offer cloud drives to individual end users. Those who aren’t too trusting of cloud drives may perhaps use a hard drive, or other backup options to keep their data from being lost. That said, it is a repetitive process, a cycle that needs to run at regular intervals so that the newest files you’ve added are always backed up.

The Lenovo Z51 — a 15-inch device with a price tag starting at $499 — offers Intel's RealSense 3D camera as an optional extra. RealSense uses a trio of lenses (a conventional camera, an infrared camera, and an infrared laser) to measure depth, allowing users to control their laptop using hand gestures, or even scan objects for 3D printing. The camera costs an additional $100, but with a free upgrade to Windows 10 coming this summer (the Z51 ships with Windows 8.1), users will be able to sign…

  • Skype for Desktop: Can’t change Primary Email

    14 May 2015 | 8:44 am
    Recently I was trying to change the primary email address on my Skype account. The challenge? When I tried to change the primary email address I kept getting an invalid password prompt.
