    Many applications use search as the primary interaction pattern for their users. Azure Search is a search-as-a-service solution that allows developers and cloud architects to embed a sophisticated search experience into web and mobile applications without having to worry about the complexities of full-text search and without having to deploy, maintain, or manage any infrastructure. With Azure Search, a developer can enable the power of searching data in their application, reduce the complexity around managing and tuning a search index, and get up and running quickly using familiar interfaces…

  • A break from the past: the birth of Microsoft's new web rendering engine

    ieblog
    26 Feb 2015 | 9:00 am
    As we announced last month, Project Spartan will be the new browser across all Windows 10 devices, from phones to tablets, PCs and beyond. You’ll hear about the new browser’s features in the coming months but in this post, we want to tell you more about what motivated us to build a new rendering engine focused on interoperability with other modern browsers ― all in the name of making the Web “just work” for our customers. This new rendering engine was designed with Project Spartan in mind, but will also be available in Internet Explorer on Windows 10 for enterprises…
  • Pointer Events W3C Recommendation, Interoperable Touch, and Removing the Dreaded 300ms Tap Delay

    ieblog
    24 Feb 2015 | 10:20 am
    Today, the W3C published Pointer Events as a final Recommendation standard. This journey began a little over 2 years ago when we first submitted our proposal to the W3C for a common event model across pointing input devices. Since then, the spec has evolved and improved with the collaboration of Mozilla, Google, Opera, jQuery, IBM, Microsoft Open Technologies, and many others. Improvements have included better extensibility for new device types, additional configuration values for scrolling and zooming behavior, event constructors for synthesizing custom pointer events, and more. We updated…
  • Bringing asm.js to the Chakra JavaScript engine in Windows 10

    Earlier today, we flipped asm.js to “In Development” at status.modern.ie. Support for asm.js has been one of the top 10 most-requested items at the IE Suggestion Box on UserVoice since we launched it in December. Delivering an interoperable & spec compliant JavaScript engine with the capabilities and performance for modern experiences has been a key goal for us since the inception of Chakra. Bringing near-native performance for JavaScript code execution is a part of the same. We recently shared the details of some of the work we’ve done in Windows 10 to boost JavaScript…
  • HTTP Strict Transport Security comes to Internet Explorer

    ieblog
    16 Feb 2015 | 11:03 am
    As part of our ongoing commitment to help build an interoperable, secure web that “just works,” we're excited to announce support for HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) in Internet Explorer. This change can be previewed using Internet Explorer in the Windows 10 Technical Preview, and will come to Project Spartan in a later update. The HSTS policy protects against variants of man-in-the-middle attacks that can strip TLS out of communications with a server, leaving the user vulnerable. For example, a user may initially connect to a non-encrypted version of a website before being…

    Last year, we committed to the principle that the mobile web should just work for everyone, and introduced hundreds of targeted improvements to Internet Explorer in the Windows Phone 8.1 Update to dramatically improve interoperability with the mobile web. In November, we revealed the new rendering engine for Internet Explorer and Project Spartan on Windows 10, built on the same successful interoperability principles. Today, we’re excited to bring this new rendering engine to phones for the first time with the Windows 10 Technical Preview for phones. In today’s preview build, the new…

  • 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

    17 Feb 2015 | 4:45 am
    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

    Long Zheng
    21 Jan 2015 | 7:27 am
    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…

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.

    Recently I had a customer ask how to add Bing Maps to their Salesforce.com solution. I regularly work with developers who are integrating Bing Maps into Microsoft Dynamic CRM, but this was the first request I’ve had for Salesforce.com in a while. In this blog post we are going to see just how easy it is to integrate Bing Maps into a Salesforce.com solution. It might seem strange to some readers that we are blogging about using Bing Maps on a non-Microsoft platform like Salesforce, but it is a new Microsoft and our services can be used anywhere.

    Although 75% of IT professionals are aware that support for Windows Server 2003 is ending July 14, 2015, there are still a lot of questions about just how urgent the need to move is. Deprioritizing migration is not uncommon when there are other technology projects that are perceived to more directly benefit business groups. However, although while perhaps not as glamorous as other projects, Windows Server 2003 migration can make a big impact on your business. There are two reasons you should prioritize Windows Server 2003 migration. The first is about the business opportunity you are not…

  • Hyper-V integration components are available through Windows Update

    Ben Armstrong [MSFT]
    11 Nov 2014 | 2:00 am
    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.

  • Property insurance Florida

    Admin
    17 Feb 2015 | 11:08 am
    Is property insurance in Florida just a big scam? It’s never an easy pill to swallow. Spending hundreds and hundreds of dollars each and every month – thousands of dollars every year – to a company that they never provide you with the service that they’ve promised, only because you may never need to take advantage of their “protection”. Most everyone knows that they are going to need to carry some form of property insurance in Florida, but aren’t exactly “jazzed up” at the prospect of working with different property insurance Florida services and agents. If you’ve been…

  • Learning Vim for Beginners

    23 Feb 2015 | 4:10 am
    Vim, or Vi Improved, is an extremely powerful text editor that lets you do almost everything using keyboard shortcuts. You can replace text in a document, move or delete lines, automate edits and more without ever reaching for the mouse. Vim is the favorite source code editor of programmers but there’s no reason why you cannot use the editor for your regular text-editing tasks from writing down ideas to composing long emails. If you have always used a graphic text editor like Notepad or TextEdit, you are likely to find Vim confusing but spend some time with the editor and it will be…

    When you share any folder or file in Google Drive with someone, the shared links will work forever until you manually change the sharing permissions.

    Adblocking software like AdBlock Plus have become mainstream and now pose a significant threat to web businesses that are dependent on online advertisements. The problem is so severe that Google and Amazon are paying the writers of AdBlock Plus to whitelist their ads. This may be seen as some kind of extortion but with billions of dollars at stake, the advertising companies have chosen to take the more profitable route. It is estimated that ~5% of website visitors are blocking ads (PDF report) and the situation could be far worse for websites that have a more tech-savvy audience. If you are…

  • Edit the Text and Images of your PDF file in the Browser

    Amit Agarwal
    17 Feb 2015 | 4:09 am
    If you need to make changes in an existing PDF file, you need to get hold of the original document that was used to create the PDF, make the edits in the source document and export it as a PDF again. This is the best option since the document’s layout and formatting will be preserved in the new PDF file and you don’t even need an external PDF editor like Adobe Acrobat. However, if you do not have access to the source document, you can still edit your PDF files in the browser using the free Word app. It may not be able to handle PDF files with complex layouts, or PDFs that are…
