    Long Zheng
    14 Oct 2014 | 6:04 am
    Samsung Australia is officially opening a new “Experience” store in the heart of Melbourne tomorrow. 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. The company’s obsession with curved screens this upcoming product cycle has intrigued me from a usability point of view to say the least. After spending a few minutes with them I admit there’s no doubts there’s some part technical “look what we can do”…
  • Review: Bellroy Note Sleeve “slim wallet”

    Long Zheng
    30 Sep 2014 | 6:59 am
    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…

    10 Sep 2014 | 7:55 am
    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…
  • The 12 step process to download Microsoft SQL Server Express 2014

    The Microsoft SQL Server team has many goals. One of them is to create an industry-leading, high-performance, scalable and resilient database software. The other is to make said-software difficult to download. In previous years, the team has employed the confusing file-name strategy. But this year, with SQL Server 2014, they have done their best work yet. Step 1: I guess I want to “evaluate” SQL Server 2014 Express. The hip developer guy not using his ergonomic Aeron chair instead opting for a standing desk certainly looks like he’s enjoying his SQL Server. Step 2: Good to…

    1 Nov 2014 | 12:00 am
     When I recently wrote about the frightening yet fantastic world of DevOps, I discussed how escalations reach the dev team, but I skipped over when the dev team does the escalating. As you move from shipping annually to shipping weekly and daily, you depend on engineering systems and services to work 24x7. However, engineering systems often don’t get the love they deserve, and may not be resilient. As a result, escalations become part of your life. Ideally, we would transform our engineering systems into production-quality services (at least three nines—inoperative only eight…

One of Microsoft's big pushes for SharePoint 2013 for On Premise is to consolidate multiple web applications to a single Web Application. This is easier said than done and depending on the complexity of one's environment this can take some time to unravel all of the moving parts like moving from path based to host name site collections.

    Microsoft continues to re-examine and bolster its platform company roots, this time by announcing app support for Outlook.com, coming in Spring 2015. Microsoft has been pushing 3rd party development on its Office properties, announcing API support for Office 365 last spring, and extending that with new SDKs for iOS and Android just a couple of weeks ago.

    Windows Phone missed a whole sales cycle this year. Consumers and businesses alike continue to pan Windows 8 / 8.1, and although sales of the Surface Pro 3 are encouraging, they’re still lagging far behind iPad sales. Microsoft is rumored to be getting into the wearables market, but it’s almost November and it’s rapidly approaching a deadline for any kind of a splash to be made in this year’s holiday season. Windows Phone sales are off worldwide again, the already struggling phone ecosystem is losing what little share it had, and the Xbox One is dropping prices yet…

    Microsoft’s online apps are sporting a bit of a new look today with a new app switcher for Office Online and the Outlook.com Mail, People, Calendar, and OneDrive apps. The new switcher resides in the upper left corner of the online headers, providing a consistent and convenient place for app switching while taking up far less real estate than in previous versions. The familiar square tiles are still in evidence once you open the switcher, but they’re confined to a small box, in two rows, instead of lined up across the header: Once you’ve opened a document in Office Online,…

At last we can talk about what we have been working on for close to 18 months - “San Diego” - that was the code name for what is now “Microsoft Cloud Platform System” (CPS), which was announced earlier today by Scott Guthrie. These 18 months have been a journey for all of us in the product group. It began, as all journeys should, as conversations with our customers. What followed has evolved how we think about and engineer our products. We were struck by the large number of customers who were failing to realize the benefits of the cloud. Running one of the…

    Have you ever wanted to write an email now but send it a later date and time? Maybe you are sending birthday greetings and would like the email message to be delivered on the exact day. Or you have written the reply to an email but would like to schedule delivery in the recipient’s time zone when the message is more likely to get read. Microsoft Outlook has a built-in scheduler to help you delay the delivery of email messages. After you are finished writing an email message and hit the Send button, the message isn’t delivered immediately — it stays in your outbox and is sent…

You can record the microphone audio along with the video, there’s an option to show or hide the mouse clicks during the screen recording and the movies can be exported in HD formats. This very-capable app is called QuickTime Player. And it just got better. If you have upgraded your Mac to OS X Yosemite, you can use the same QuickTime Player software to record the screen of your iOS device in 2 easy steps.

    I have almost exhausted my download bandwidth for this billing cycle and, lest you assume anything, I haven’t downloaded any torrents or movies from the Internet. All I have done is updated the Macs to the recently released OS X Yosemite and also downloaded the latest version of Apple iMovie, Keynote and other Mac software. The Mac OS X Yosemite installer is about 5 GB in size and, for some unknown reason, the Apps Store doesn’t always support resumable downloads. So if your Internet connection goes down while the installer is getting downloaded or if there’s a problem…
  • How to Color Alternate Rows in Google Sheets

    Amit Agarwal
    16 Oct 2014 | 7:10 am
    Microsoft Excel and other programs in Microsoft Office provide a handy feature called “Quick Styles” to help you quickly format a selected range as a striped table. The table can have zebra lines meaning alternating rows are formatted with different colors (see example). Google Sheets do not support zebra stripes (yet) but you can use conditional formatting combined with a simple Google Formula to create a formatted table. You can apply alternating colors to both rows and columns in Google Sheets easily. Here’s the trick. Open a Google Sheet and choose Conditional formatting…

    You can only speak and write English so how do you converse with a person in China who writes Mandarin but doesn’t understand a word of English? Google Translate is no doubt a good option but it is going to be tedious for you (and your Chinese friend) to translate each and every sentence manually before sending them through any messenger. How do you break down the language barrier and chat with someone in another country when there’s no ‘common’ language between the two parties? Microsoft is building a version of Skype for that will allow real-time translation for…

  • How To Snap Windows Using Keyboard Shortcuts In Windows 10

    Fatima Wahab
    31 Oct 2014 | 6:09 am
    Snapping in Windows 10 is very different than it was in Windows 8 and Windows 7. If you never made the jump to Windows 8, or if you decided to revert back to Windows 7 after you realized you didn’t like Windows 8 one bit, snapping windows in Windows 10 will seem even more different. We touched on the feature, and how it works in our Windows 10 feature review. One major change with the Snap feature is that it doesn’t just let you snap windows to one half or one quarter of the screen. Instead you have many more snapping options and more sizes to snap a window in. This guide details…

    Microsoft got a lot of heat with Windows 8 and loyal Windows users were disappointed with the company’s attempt at innovation since it ended up sacrificing two of the most iconic features of the OS but Microsoft and its products aren’t all a result of trial and error. Take a look at Office 2013 and you can see the company gets a lot of things right in just the one go. The Office productivity suite has everything you could ever need to make a solid well-formatted document, spreadsheet, or presentation. What’s more is that it also features many auto-fill options and helpful…
  • Send A Window To A Different Virtual Desktop In Windows 10

    Fatima Wahab
    28 Oct 2014 | 9:51 am
    Windows 10 introduced virtual desktops. Microsoft is quite far behind in introducing this feature since both OS X and Ubuntu have had it for ages. We don’t know just how cooked the feature is; whether it’s out in its entirety in the current developer build, or if there is more to come with the final release. That said, the new feature is very welcome and we’re hoping lots of third-party apps will be developed to help us get even more out of these desktops. Like virtual desktops on other popular operating systems, you can move apps between these desktops in Windows 10. The…
  • Force Windows Apps To Open As Maximized

    Fatima Wahab
    24 Oct 2014 | 10:25 am
    One of my favorite Windows features  is window management. Specifically, the Snap feature is what I love. Windows 10 has improved it significantly for anyone working with a large monitor. Modern apps can also run full screen on the desktop. The snap feature is so popular that it causes envy among OS X users though they might not admit it. Apart from this very obvious and very awesome way to manage windows, the OS  offers a few obscure settings to manage windows better. If you”re looking for a way to always open an app with a fully maximized window, while wanting to make other…
  • ScreenToGif: Screencast GIF Making Tool With Powerful Editor [Windows]

    We did a post a few days back on tools for creating GIFs. ScreenToGif is a Windows app that has just caught our attention for all the right reasons and warrants its own review. ScreenToGif is a free executable utility that records a screencast and saves it as GIF. Unlike Recordit, it doesn’t convert from an video format to a GIF, instead you record a GIF. You select the frame rate and the recording area, and when you click record, it starts to capture the GIF. You can manage the playback rate, and choose to loop it and if that isn’t enough, the app also lets you add text to your…

My friends over at Experts Exchange reached out to me. They were looking for a video producer for a new initiative; Micro-Tutorials. What’s a Micro-Tutorial?
