  • RDBMS Vs Hadoop

    29 Aug 2015 | 11:25 pm
      Hi, Thanks for stopping by here, let me shamelessly accept the fact, I was not sure of what HDInsight is, what Hadoop is or what BigData is and why someone should use it instead of traditional RDBMS as I have spent most of my time in Web Development space like MVC, WPF and other .Net client side dev technologies with RDBMS like SQL. I had heard about Hadoop in bits and pieces from many of my industry friends. BigData or Hadoop is not an answer to any problem that you have. You need to know when to use it and when not to use it before you finalize on it. So thought will write a small…

    Pierre Audonnet [MSFT]

    The way the Windows Server 2012 R2 ADFS customization works currently does not enable you to modify the graphical end user experience based on the relying party trust (RP) the user is trying to access. So the look and feel of the sign-in page is the same for every user whether they are trying to access to the relying party trust A, the relying party trust B, their Office 365 environment or simply the IDP initiated sign-in page. In fact, we can totally go fancy and customize per relying party trust by doing a bit of JavaScript. Modifying the onload.js script of the sign-in page…

    29 Aug 2015 | 9:24 pm
    While Wi-Fi connectivity is important, to be able to print to a printer is equally important despite the expensive cartridges.

After installing Windows 10 recently, I lost connectivity with the printer even after adding manually the printer previously used with old versions of Windows.

    Microsoft Windows Server Team

The result is a new, lean cloud fabric host and application development platform that’s a mere 5% of the size of Server Core. Its small size reduces security attack risks. And its redesign means fewer, quicker reboots.

    In a press and analyst briefing a few months back, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella put up a slide proclaiming “Microsoft ♥ Linux”.  Wow!  What a great slide and what a change for Microsoft!  The trade press picked up on this slide in a major way, with a number of articles echoing this new approach to Linux and open source within Microsoft.  And they’re right! But you may ask “Why is Microsoft working with Linux and open source?”, or “What’s Microsoft’s plan going forward?”, or “What does ‘Microsoft…
  • Enterprise-grade virtualization and next-gen app platform

    Microsoft Windows Server Team
    5 May 2015 | 9:00 am
    With the releases of Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2, we made huge improvements across the board in software defined compute, storage, networking and more.  We’re regularly hearing about your successes as well as your next round of feature requests J. In these discussions with you, we’ve also noticed the conversation has matured. While virtualization continues to be an important aspect of your infrastructure, I’m rarely asked about feature comparisons at the hypervisor layer anymore. That’s a 2005 conversation. The conversation has shifted from…

  • Integration components available for virtual machines not connected to Windows Update

    sarah_cooley[msft]
    24 Jul 2015 | 10:42 am
    In Technical Preview, Hyper-V began delivering integration components through Windows Update (see blog for more information). Pushing updates through Windows Update was a good first step -- it is the easiest way to keep integration components up to date.  There are situations, however, where the virtual machine isn't connected to Windows Update and sometimes it is more convenient to patch an offline (turned off) virtual machine.  Now, in addition to receiving integration component updates automatically through Windows Update, you can also update integration components…
  • 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…

  • Gmail AutoResponder is a Better Alternative to Canned Responses

    Amit Agarwal
    24 Aug 2015 | 12:27 pm
    If you find yourself writing the same email response over and over again – like a technical support request asking for instructions on how to do something or a confirmation email to customers to let them know you’ve received their message – canned responses in Gmail can help you save both time and typing. The idea is that you compose a email message with the ‘generic’ response and save it in your Gmail drafts. Later, you can quickly insert that pre-formatted template into the body of your email with a click without having to manually write the whole…
  • Adjust the Volume of your Android Phone without using the Buttons

    Amit Agarwal
    19 Aug 2015 | 7:02 am
    Most Android phones have physical buttons on the side for controlling the playback volume and, whether you are listening to podcasts or watching Youtube videos, these keys are sometimes the only way to control the app’s volume. The hardware buttons are easy to use but they are not as convenient as, say, the Control Center on the iPhone where one can change volume using the on-screen volume slider. Does something similar exist for Android devices that would allow you to control the volume without using the hardware buttons? The Google Play store throws up dozens of…
  • The Best Tools for Saving Web Pages, Forever

    Amit Agarwal
    14 Aug 2015 | 12:10 am
    Web pages change or may even disappear with time. Thus if you would like to preserve a web page forever, you should either need to download that page to your computer (and put it on Dropbox) or you could use a web archiving service that will safely store a copy of that page on their own servers, permanently. There are quite a few ways to save web pages permanently and your choice of the tool will depend on the kind of web content that you are trying to archive.

Unlike Lynx that require installation and run locally, Text Browser is a web app and runs in the Google cloud. To get started, click here and authorize the web app with your Google Account. It requires authorization to sign-in and also for fetching web pages on your behalf. It will neither track your browsing activity nor will have access to any of your Google Account data.

  • "Big Agile" and "little agile"

    29 Aug 2015 | 7:42 pm
    There are two types of Agile, "Big Agile" and "little agile." Big Agile is the philosophy; the business theory and perspective of how we want to work with others that supports why we would make this process change. If you truly intend to alter the way you think about why you do projects and how you do them, you cannot merely buy a toolkit, stick up a few Agile posters, or pay for an Agile course, and then automatically have an Agile team. What makes the things you do truly Agile is the way you do things and the reasons you have for doing them that way. In other words, you cannot "do" Agile,…

But there is no credible evidence that it provides major improvements to the programming process or that it is better than classical techniques such as code reviews, and no reason to impose it as the sole mode of development.Open-space working arrangements. There is no single formula for the layout of a working environment. What we do know is that it is essential to provide simple, obvious opportunities for informal communication.

It links cause and effect in a ratio and, although this is not represented absolutely accurately in real life, an…

    As regular readers will know I am a fan of Powerline kit, you get stable reliable high speed bandwidth for media streaming for devices that don’t have WiFi capability. The Netgear Powerline 1200 kit comes with two devices, one you connect to your router and one you connect up to your device. It will then transfer data between the two devices at 1200Mbps, you just plug it in and it all works no configuration needed. There are indicator lights on it showing the quality of the connection so you know what bandwidth to expect. In this video I unbox the kit, connect it up and see what…

    With Windows 10 Microsoft introduced new entertainment apps in the form of Groove and Movies & TV. Groove is a replacement for Xbox Music and Movie & TV is a replacement for Xbox Video. Both the apps have a lot of functionality but not much in the way of network connectivity. While it is not immediately obviously you can use the Movies & TV app to access videos stored on shared folders on PCs and servers on your home network. First you need to share out the folder containing your videos, if you have done this already jump to the next section. To share a folder right click on the…

    While Chromebooks haven’t had much impact on the worldwide market for personal computing devices, there is one important market in which Google’s entry-level notebooks have seen some traction: the cash-strapped United States education market. And according to a recent study, sales of Chromebooks have surged past those of iPads and are closing in on the Windows PC market leader. A recent IDC report claims that sales of Chromebooks to the US education market surpassed those of Apple’s iPad—which has been struggling in general, with six straight quarters of falling sales…

  • Why PowerShell’s Desired State Configuration Should Matter to You

    Jeff Hicks
    24 Aug 2015 | 7:00 am
    Unless you have been locked away in the bowels of your data center, I’m going to assume that you have heard the term, Desired State Configuration, also often referred to as DSC. If you’re thinking that DSC doesn’t apply to you, it’s time to think again. DSC was first introduced with PowerShell 4.0 and with the impending arrival of PowerShell 5.0, DSC is poised to really take off. Perhaps the most important thing you need to know about DSC is that it is not another type of PowerShell scripting. Why is Desired State Configuration Important? DSC is based on a number of…

  • Set A Default Size For The Save As Window [Windows]

    Fatima Wahab
    27 Aug 2015 | 11:47 am
    The Save As window that pops up when you save a file in any program has a mind of its own or more precisely, it just doesn’t listen to you much. If a program remembers the last place it saved a file to, it’s something a lot of us are grateful for. The programs that allow us to set a default save location of our choice are less rare but these choices have to do with the save location and not the Save As window itself. If you’re unsatisfied with the size the Save As window opens in, here’s a simple way to resize it and have a program remember your preferred size for all…
  • Create A Custom App Tile For The Windows 10 Start Menu

    Fatima Wahab
    26 Aug 2015 | 11:37 am
    Windows 10 is missing a pretty important and rather obvious feature; it doesn’t let you customize the color of an app tile. For app tiles that feature only an icon in a box, that box often looks ugly against whatever color has been set for the Start menu. If you’re looking for a way to create a custom app tile, image, color and all, there’s a little app that lets you do just that. Meet Better StartMenu an app that will let you create a custom icon for any app of your choice, and through its Windows Store version, you can pin it to the Start menu. The app costs $2.99 but as…
  • Easily Navigate The All Apps List In The Windows 10 Start Menu

    Fatima Wahab
    25 Aug 2015 | 11:30 am
    The Start menu in Windows 10 has an alphabetically organized list of all the apps you’ve installed on your system. It’s currently capped to showing just 500 entries but even with a much smaller number of apps appearing in the All Apps list, you end up scrolling to get to the app you want. It’s organized but it’s far easier to use the search bar to launch an app instead of scrolling this list. If you prefer the All Apps list but without all the scrolling, Windows 10 has a built-in way to make it easier to use. Here’s how. Open the Start menu and click on All…
  • How To Disable The Lock Screen In Windows 10

    Fatima Wahab
    25 Aug 2015 | 10:45 am
    The Lock Screen in Windows 10 is a nice feature carried over from Windows 8. It’s nice to look at and is supposed to house notifications from apps that you allow to it. The only problem is that for a lot of users, app information simply isn’t showing up on the lock screen (users are desperately seeking a solution while Microsoft remains mute on the problem). With no app information available on the Lock screen, it’s pretty much just an extra UI layer which will give you the time and date as you walk by. You can set any image of your choice as the lock screen image but as…

    The Personalization options in Windows 10 have changed. For the most part, you can manage basic settings related to backgrounds and colors from the Settings app. If you’re trying to set a theme in Windows 10, you will have to switch to the Personalization pane in the Control Panel but that too has been stripped so that you can no longer set sounds, colors, and a screensaver. Any colors you can set for the Taskbar, Start menu, and the window borders are set from the Settings app and you can only choose one. Now there are plenty of ways to modify the UI. You can use tools like Rainmeter…

    In Windows 10, the default web browser is Microsoft Edge, the latest browser developed by Microsoft. However, even if Edge brings many new features and improvements when compared to Microsoft's previous browser - Internet Explorer - you still may want to change your default browser to another one, which you're already accustomed to. Whether you like Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, Internet Explorer, Edge or any other web browser out there, setting any of them as default in Windows 10 is rather easy and, depending on the method you choose, it's also more or less a fast process.

    Microsoft isn't the only one making an expensive new Xbox One controller aimed at hardcore gamers. Today Razer announced its Wildcat controller, which it describes as "a pro-gamer-validated, tournament-grade, console controller." It was built specifically with e-sports in mind, and Razer even consulted with pro gamers during the design process. It's 20 percent lighter than comparable controllers, according to the company, but more importantly offers a customizable experience and additional functionality. In addition to the standard Xbox button set-up, the Wildcat also features two removable…

But Phil Spencer, Microsoft's head of Xbox, shot those rumors down last night, using Twitter to say that the rumored smaller version of the console is "not real."

A webpage for the September 9th iPhone event reveals that Apple will support Windows 10 PCs with the Microsoft Edge browser.

Apple uses HTTP Live Streaming technology (HLS) that is part of QuickTime, Safari, OS X, and iOS. It's a protocol implemented by Apple and suggested as a standard, but it's not one that many other companies have used widely. While…

Windows 10 allows Windows Store apps to be used in windowed mode, making them responsive, resizable and more usable in desktop. This makes the appeal of Windows Store apps a lot broader, as a result, I expect to see more quality Windows Store apps coming to the platform more often than before.   There are two types of Windows apps on the Store currently. Some are targeted towards Windows 8 and the others have specific features related to Windows 10 called Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps.

I’ve been using the app since. N7Player takes a different design approach as a music player. When you open the app, you will see a grid of your favorite artists’ name. You can then zoom in(semantic) on an artist’s name or tap on it to reveal his/her albums. Personally, I prefer to go this way. There is also the more traditional library function a tap away.
