  • Microsoft Releases More Win10 Updates

    Paul Thurrott (http://www.thurrott.com) just reported that Microsoft has updated the shipping versions of Windows 10 again this month. It’s another Cumulative Update so you’ll need to reboot your machine after the update gets installed. With all the Bad Guy activity going on, it’s not really surprising to me. While it’s a pain in the rear […]

  • Microsoft Win10 Anniversary Update to be released August 2nd

    Mary Jo Foley at All About Microsoft reports that Microsoft will be releasing Service Pack 1 (oops — I meant Anniversary Update) on August 2nd just a few short days after the one year release date anniversary of Windows 10 and the end of the free upgrade offer. Ms. Foley spoke with Terry Myerson (Windows […]

  • So Long Quicktime, It was fun.

    We’re recommending you remove the Quicktime Player from any machines you have it installed on. It was a not so “quick” ride that has come to an end. Windows 8 & 10 haven’t played well with Quicktime anyway. In fact the plugin was deactivated with the last Quicktime update received this past January. Trend Micro […]

  • Have Evernote files you want to transfer to OneNote?

    I still maintain that OneNote is the best FREE tool you’re not using. Especially if you have a touch or pen device — but any device will do. There’s a OneNote App for that (really!). One of the arguments against switching over to OneNote was the lack of ability to move those files over easily. […]

  • Happy International Women’s Day

    Microsoft is celebrating International Women’s Day (March 8th) by celebrating the creators and inventors with their #MakeWhatsNext campaign. A new video from Microsoft shows the lack of awareness girls today have about women inventors and reminds them to celebrate those women’s accomplishments and be encouraged to follow in their footsteps. Microsoft, as part of its […]

  • Microsoft Fetch! guesses the breed of your dog — or what breed you are.

    Microsoft Garage recently released a fun new iPhone App — Fetch! It’s Joey and Fletcher Approved — it correctly identified their breeds even though I purposely took *terrible* pictures of them. Their faces were mostly covered as they slept. I haven’t had the nerve to find out if I belong in their “pack.” 🙂 From […]

  • Windows 10 UPGRADE should always be FREE.

    Source: https://www.thurrott.com/windows/windows-10/64450/the-windows-10-upgrade-should-always-be-free Paul Thurrott does an outstanding job laying out the case of why the Windows 10 Upgrade should always be free. I think that Microsoft will do the right thing. And today, I’d like to make the case that this is the only correct outcome. It is in fact, “the only outcome.” That Microsoft […]

  • Data in the clouds or under the sea?

    A New York Times article published on 1/31/16 highlights a new data center project from one of Microsoft’s Research groups called NExT (New Experiences and Technologies) that is solving a big data center problem (heat) with the cool ocean waters. Today’s data centers, which power everything from streaming video to social networking and email, contain […]

  • Why Microsoft wants everyone to have Windows 10

    Microsoft is in what appears to be a huge rush to get everyone to upgrade to Windows 10. They’ve even put a date on when they will quit giving it away for free: July 29, 2016. Why is that and what’s the rush you ask? There are a few good reasons to get everyone on […]
