Details below.   (In your best Jeff Foxworthy voice) You might be in the TIVO generation if:   ·         You sit in meetings wanting to fast forward the presenter ·         You look for the rewind button on your car stereo because you just missed something…

Vista RTM + 1 week

If you have read some of my previous posts around Vista, you know that it was one of few Microsoft products during this “wave” of products that I wasn’t getting excited about.  In fact, I had so many issues with B2->RC1 builds that I stopped using it on my tablet back in September. Well, I…

Thank you: Steve Irwin

I have been on vacation for the past few days, but have been inundated with information about Steve Irwin’s death.  For my family, this was very sad news as we have watched many of his shows and appearances since the late 90’s.    Many of the comments from people have been comical from “you knew…

Seriously scary Blackberry

For years, competitors to Blackberry have been pointing out the inherent security flaws with RIM’s services such as, um, all your corporate data flows through their network (along with all your competitor’s data).   Microsoft’s play around this is the fact that Exchange Active Sync doesn’t flow over someone else’s network, it simply uses HTTPS over…

Exchange 12 Stuff that I liked

I got a sneak preview of the Exchange 12 at TechReady and got excited about a few things.  Since most of the features are included in beta’s I can share them with you. 1)  New server roles.  Gone is the idea of a “Front End Server”, instead there will be several roles that a server…
