Just released… Moving from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 at Microsoft.
From the web:
Microsoft IT wanted to provide a way for Windows 8 users to quickly and easily roll out the Windows 8.1 update in the environment. With Windows 8.1 and Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager, it has become easier to provide a seamless way to update employees’ computers.
I want to make sure you have seen one of the latest XBOX One Ads. It’s getting a lot of praise and showcases the great story about the new entertainment system.
Have you preordered your system yet?
The countdown is underway!!!
A FREE Microsoft Press book has been published titled “Introducing Windows 8.1 for IT Professionals – Technical Overview” written by Ed Bott. You can get this 131 page PDF at http://aka.ms/684270pdf
The Verge: Google will start using your picture to sell products to friends
Google users will soon find themselves unwittingly advertising products for the company, thanks to a massive change Google is making to its terms of service. First reported by the New York Times, the change categorizes a user’s follows, comments, and +1s as “shared endorsements” for a product or service. These shared endorsements can be used to build ads across the platform, pulling in a user’s profile name and photograph to help boost the ad’s credibility.
Details coming soon…
Yesterday, Shepard Smith introduced his new Studio where he highlighted their re-worked News Desk. The newsroom is outfitted with a number of BATS (big area touchscreens) which are 55-inch Windows 8 devices.
You can watch the 5-minute video which showcases the new studio and you will notice that the devices are Windows 8.
There were a number of blogs about this yesterday. Here are a few that I have found:
