    Microsoft is planning to release its first update to Windows Phone 8.1 soon, and the company has started detailing some of the upcoming features to phone manufacturers.

It’s a feature both Android and iOS have had for years, so it’s encouraging to see Microsoft is finally closing this gap. One of the more interesting features with Update 1 is support for interactive case accessories. HTC, Samsung, and LG…

    Microsoft released its 4th quarter earnings yesterday, and despite a big hit from the Nokia acquisition, the news was generally good. Microsoft’s cloud services (Azure, Office 365, and the like) are starting to take off, traditional server side businesses (SQL Server, Hyper-V, etc.) continue to do well, and Microsoft as an enterprise company continues to be healthy. The news isn’t all bad on the consumer side of the equation, either, despite the hit taken due to the acquisition of Nokia. Bing continues to gain share (although mostly at the expense of Yahoo!), and according to…
  • Xbox an entertainment platform? So much for that idea

    18 Jul 2014 | 11:16 am
    More fallout from Microsoft layoffs announcements came later in the day yesterday, this time with the news that Xbox Entertainment Studios (XES) would be closing. The Studios, headed by ex-CBS exec Nancy Tellem, who was hired in September 2012 to help to help to “expand the Xbox platform beyond games”. In Microsoft’s press release announcing her hiring, she laid out the plans for Xbox as a consumer entertainment hub: “I am excited to be a part of the continued evolution of Xbox from a gaming console to the hub of every household’s entertainment experience,”…
  • Microsoft is cutting 18,000 jobs this year, realigning phones business – is it enough?

    Kip Kniskern
    17 Jul 2014 | 9:43 am
    Today, as expected, Microsoft announced significant job cuts as it moves into the new fiscal year and continues to integrate Nokia’s phones businesses into the company. The majority of those cuts, some 12,000 over the next 12 months (with 13,000 total cuts coming almost immediately, and the other 6,000 spread out over the next year), will come out of Nokia, or at least will eliminate jobs that have become redundant due to the Nokia acquisition. The job cuts are part of a systemic re-alignment of the Nokia phones businesses as they integrate into Microsoft. Both Satya Nadella and Stephen…
  • The coming Microsoft job cuts: more than just numbers

    Kip Kniskern
    16 Jul 2014 | 11:04 am
    According to a news report coming out of Bloomberg, Microsoft could be announcing its most significant job cuts since 2009, and that announcement could be coming as soon as this week. Although the cuts are widely expected to focus on trimming the fat after the Nokia acquisition, with some 1,000 job cuts expected in Finland, the announcements, when they come, could shed some light on new CEO Satya Nadella’s plans for the future of the company. Back in 2009, when Steve Ballmer announced cuts of some 5,000 workers (the final tally was closer to 5,800), Microsoft took the opportunity to…
  • Nadella outlines changes coming to Microsoft in email to employees

    Kip Kniskern
    10 Jul 2014 | 10:10 am
    It’s easy to take today’s email by Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella as not much more than a high level, buzzword filled, overly long communique from a CEO to his some 100,000 employees. In it, Nadella re-describes Microsoft’s core mission, refining Ballmer’s “devices and services” company to the more encompassing (and long winded) “Microsoft is a productivity and platform company for the mobile-first and cloud-first world”. Although the email weighs in at something just over 3,000 words, it’s still hard to glean any concrete information out of…

At the surface this seems simple enough – configure initial replication to send the data over the network for the VMs one after another in sequence. For this specific customer however, there were some additional constraints placed: The network bandwidth was less than 10Mbps and it primarily catered to their daily business needs (email etc…). Adding more network was not possible within their budget. This came as quite a surprise because despite the…

A: Nope – we did more than that. Yes, we rebranded Hyper-V Recovery Manager to Azure Site Recovery (ASR) but we also brought in a bunch of new features.

The thinking goes that if these online distractions are gone, you are more likely to focus on actual work. Alex MacCaw has created Motivation, a Chrome app that takes a slightly different approach. It replaces the new tab page of your Google Chrome with a real-time counter that displays your incrementing age.

  • A Twitter Search Trick You Didn’t Know About

    Amit Agarwal
    25 Jul 2014 | 12:30 am
    Tweetdeck, the popular app for Twitter, offers a very useful search feature that helps you discover the more popular (viral) tweets for any search term very easily. While setting up a search column inside Tweetdeck (see screenshot), you can define an “engagement level” so that tweets that have been retweeted or favorited at least ‘n’ times only show up in the search results. The engagement filter surfaces the best tweets and removes the noise from Twitter search results but the most surprising part is that Twitter has not made this filter available outside Tweetdeck.

    24 Jul 2014 | 1:44 am
    How do you buy something that’s available in U.S. online stores but none of your local shopping sites have the product in stock yet? Well, you can ask your friends in America to ship the item to your international address, you can use a package forwarding service or the other option would be that you find an online retailer that itself offers international shipping. Many online retailers in the United States, including the likes of Macy’s and Toys “R” Us, are now shipping their products to customers in international destinations. Yes, the overseas shipping…

Windows 7 introduced the Office style ribbon to the Wordpad and Paint applications, but stopped short of adding it to Windows Explorer. Unless you've been living under a rock for the past seven years, you have probably used the ribbon UI that was introduced as part of Office…

Related: Provision Domain Controllers in Azure using PowerShell In most cases, domain-joined computers have established connections to at least one Active Directory DC, and if there are no errors in that computer's event log, then you may safely assume that AD connectivity functions correctly.

  • BrightExplorer Adds Tabs To Windows File Explorer

    It feels surprising that Microsoft has not redesigned the default File Explorer of Windows in ages. Even though some features like the Ribbon UI were added in Windows 8 for improved navigation, the core usability issues still remained untouched. Windows Explorer, for instance, doesn’t offer users a way to open multiple directories via tabs. Now imagine if you had to browse the web without the multi-tab interface which is now found in many modern web browsers like Firefox and Chrome. That being said, if someone needs to work with multiple directories, the Windows File Explorer doesn’t cut…

  • Microsoft pits Siri against Cortana in new Windows Phone 8.1 ad

    Tom Warren
    27 Jul 2014 | 11:39 pm
    Microsoft is focusing on Apple’s Siri digital assistant in one of the first Windows Phone 8.1 commercials. It’s another return to the Mac vs. PC war, as Microsoft choses to mock Siri in an effort to showcase Cortana for the first time. The new commercial sees an iPhone 5S pitted against a low-end Lumia 635, with Cortana handling people- and location-based reminders, along with traffic alerts for meetings. Siri is unable to complete similar tasks. "Now that is a smartphone," admits Siri as the comparison ends, and the Lumia 635 is pushed on its low pricing. Microsoft has previously…
  • Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 includes support for folders and interactive cases

    Tom Warren
    27 Jul 2014 | 8:55 am
    Microsoft is planning to release its first update to Windows Phone 8.1 soon, and the company has started detailing some of the upcoming features to phone manufacturers. One of the main visual changes with Update 1 is the introduction of folder support, allowing Windows Phone users to drag one Tile on top of another and create a folder to organize apps. It’s a feature both Android and iOS have had for years, so it’s encouraging to see Microsoft is finally closing this gap. One of the more interesting features with Update 1 is support for interactive case accessories. HTC, Samsung, and LG…
  • Microsoft made a terrible parody of 'Sexy and I Know It' to promote Surface Pro 3 and OneNote

    Jacob Kastrenakes
    23 Jul 2014 | 3:26 pm
    Despite being a major institution of the tech industry, Microsoft has always been willing to be fairly lighthearted and get a little goofy. That's for better or for worse, depending on how you take it. Microsoft has a long history of making silly videos that often fall on the more embarrassing side of goofy, and little to its concern. Microsoft may well know this, but its videos don't necessarily present the perfect image for the company or its products. Case in point: a new video from its OneNote team parodying LMFAO's 2011 hit "Sexy and I Know It" to promote the Surface Pro 3. "When I…
  • Uber finally launches a real Windows Phone app

    23 Jul 2014 | 2:06 pm
    Windows Phone users can finally take a ride with Uber. Well, technically they could before by using Uber's previous "app" which was little more than a wrapper for the mobile site. But native software that's actually designed for Windows Phone is always better, and today there's finally an official Uber app. Yes, it arrives long after Uber debuted on rival platforms Android and iOS, but most of what you'd expect is there on day one. Set a pickup location in the app, choose the vehicle you want to ride in (Uber taxi, UberX, black car, etc.), and then sit back and wait for your driver. Payment…
  • Microsoft's Lumia 530 takes on Android at the low end

    Tom Warren
    23 Jul 2014 | 1:45 am
    Microsoft has a new smartphone competitor for the low end: the Lumia 530. Designed as a successor to the popular Lumia 520, Microsoft’s Lumia 530 includes similar specifications and a low price point of just 85 euros ($114) before taxes and subsidies. While the Lumia 525, a revision of the 520, included 1GB of RAM, Microsoft has opted for 512MB of RAM in the Lumia 530 and just 4GB of storage and a quad-core processor.  The Lumia 530 also includes on-screen buttons, joining the Lumia 630 as the second Windows Phone to include this new functionality.

  • Gartner predicts 10 per cent market share for Windows Phone

    9 Jul 2014 | 4:35 am
    Windows Phone’s market share will reach 10 per cent by 2018, according to market researcher Gartner Group. Market growth will be fuelled by the fact that since February, Microsoft has added 11 Windows Phone original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to its original stable of four.

  • Designing a simple namespace for Exchange 2013

    Gareth Gudger
    8 Jul 2014 | 4:30 am
    One of the most frequent questions I receive concerns namespace design. I covered this recently in an article geared towards Exchange 2010. However, it quickly became apparent I needed to revisit this topic specifically for Exchange 2013. Especially with the big GUI rewrite. So, let’s get started! What’s in a namespace Namespace is very important. Not only does namespace govern services like Outlook Web App, or, ActiveSync, but it also governs items such as the distribution of the Offline Address Book, or, the Autodiscover service. A correct namespace design is key. Out of the box…

    That seems a little counter productive doesn’t it? Isn’t the whole point of a Mail Contact to put an external address in your Global Address List? Well, yes and no. There are certain situations where you may not want an external contact to be generally available to your user base. Take this scenario for example. You are the sole IT person at your company. You contract an external company to perform network monitoring 24×7. Your devices email out alerts to a distribution list. This distribution list contains two people. Yourself and the mail contact for the monitoring…

You are the IT person for a small company. The company has a number of silent partners. They are not involved in the daily operations of the company. But they do need regular notifications on the company financials. As a result, they do not have an email address with the company. Instead they wish to receive all communication to an external address. That of their investment firm. You already have a distribution list for your active…

You open the EAC, browse to the database tab, only to have trouble finding a way to move the database files. Right-clicking the database does nothing. None of the buttons seem to indicate a way to do it. So, now what? The big change This all changed in Exchange 2013. Moving the database and log files is only possible via the Exchange Management Shell (EMS). This differs from earlier versions of Exchange where you could do this from the GUI. Don’t despair!
