    clip_image001There was a time when the software “ship cycle” resulted in delivery of the final version, the “Gold” code (so called as it would have been written to a gold-coloured recordable CD), which was RTM’ed then sent off to get pressed onto CD or even copied onto magnetic disks.

    Nowadays, there generally isn’t ever a “finished” version – there’s the initial release, then a whole stream of updates, patches, service releases, feature packs etc.

    Windows 10 Mobile (the new moniker for Windows Phone) has been slated for release for a little while now, even though there are phones out there shipping with it ready installed, and there are more to come soon – maybe some news will follow at Mobile World Congress later in February. There’s now a page that will show details of updates to Windows 10 Mobile– there’s not a lot on it right now, but check out the Windows 10 version if you want to see what to expect. Commentators are suggesting that the fact the update page exists means the wide-scale rollout of Windows 10 Mobile to existing Windows Phone 8.x devices must be imminent.

    Get it early

    If you want to install Windows 10 Mobile on your existing phone, it’s very easy to do – just install the Windows Insider app on your device, sign in with your Microsoft Account, and when you run the app it will ask you what degree of pain excitement you’re prepared to tolerate enjoy. The Insiders Fast“ring” will give you the biggest thrill, but especially in early stages of the development cycle, might break things that worked previously. The Slow ring clip_image004will give you stuff that’s been run by the Fast people for a while, and is known to be in good shape. You can switch between the rings, so if you choose to go Slow but never get any updates, you can always step up the pace a bit. There’s a new “Release Preview” ring now too,

    Read more about the Insider program here; get the app from here.

    Latest release

    Fast and Slow rings have been given the 10586.107 build (in fact, that’s also gone to any existing W10 Mobile user too), which is being reported as “Production Ready” and rumoured to be the build that will be rolled out to other devices, said to be coming any day now. If you’re running Windows Phone 8.x and fancy previewing Windows 10 Mobile, or if you’ve already got a 950 or 950XL and are looking to get the latest & greatest build, then make sure you grab this one. User reports say that devices are running noticeably faster and battery life is greatly improved.

    Check out your current version by going to Settings -> About -> More Info on Windows Phone 8.x,
    or Settings -> System -> About on Windows 10 Mobile.

    What’s new in Windows 10 Mobile

    clip_image006There’s a new UI, some changes that are obvious when compared to WP8.x, but some are more subtle. The Notifications area at the top of the phone, for example, can show all the common settings and includes shortcut features like a Flashlight, or quick jump to OneNote.

    Find out more about what’s new, here.

    If you have a new handset, there are some other obvious changes – like the 3 buttons at the bottom of the screen now being on-screen rather than below it (so the screen can be bigger). Those buttons will disappear in some apps that go full-screen (like games, or videos), so you may need to swipe up from the bottom of the screen to show them.

    Also, if you’ve a new device, you’ll notice that it’s using USB-C– a further evolution of the USB standard with a reversible connector (hooray!) – hopefully no more damaging the connector by jamming it in the wrong way. You might not be able to bend the connector, but powering the device can still be something of a minefield.

    USB-C cables are not all the same

    If you got a Lumia 950 or 950XL, you may notice that the USB cable that comes with it looks like the kind of thing you’d find connecting an electric car to the charging stations in the car park. It turns out that good USB-C cables are quite differentiated from the generic junk you could buy for $1 on eBay or $15 from Best Buy.

    Since you’ve probably got a house-full of Micro-USB cables & chargers cluttering the place up, you might wonder how to work USB-C into your life without too much friction. Well, Googley engineer Benson Leung has done a great job of putting lots of USB-C cables & adapters through their paces, and declaring which ones will set fire to your power supply, make your phone go into meltdown or which ones to get. Basically, if Benson gives it 2 stars, then don’t bother.

    If you’re after the tl;dr version and you’re in the UK, just go and buy this £7 cable and these £5 Micro-USB->USB-C adapters(so you can plug your phone into your existing car charger without too much faffing and changing cable). Yes, £7 seems a lot for a USB doofer when you could find them on fleabay for a quid, but guff cables could do more harm than good. Benson Leung for President!

    Some additional early-stage tips for getting to grips with your new Lumia 950/XL:

    • Make sure you run the Phone Update from Settings / Update & security / Phone update
    • When you plug the phone in and the battery icon shows the charging symbol, that doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s charging. You may find that it’s just plugged in, but not getting power (especially if it makes the bada-la-doop noise every 15 secs). Props to Nick Page for pointing this out.
    • There’s no way to turn on “Hey Cortana” from the All settings menu, andusingfind a setting” for “Cortana”, doesn’t (apparently). Instead, start Cortana (press/hold the magnifying glass), press the hamburger menu in the top left, and still, there’s no settings etc. Start Notebook from that Cortana menu, and you’ll see Settings from within, and you can switch on, Hey, Cortana. Bonzer.

    Примерно 10 лет назад я для журнала “Компьютерное Обозрение” написал статью о перспективах развития различных гаджетов, в которой высказал свое видение (и описал наиболее удобный для меня лично подход к работе) мобильных устройств будущего. Конечно, 10 лет назад мало кто мог предположить, что экраны смартфонов и КПК, которые тогда имели разрешение 640х480 максимум – станут 4К, частоты процессоров тогдашних КПК с 500МГц прыгнут до 2ГГц, оперативная память будет 1-4ГБ, а хранилища вообще будет исчисляться десятками и сотнями гигабайт… НО – тенденция в правильном подходе – прослеживается – превращение смартфона в некий носимый вычислительный центр длагодаря гибкости подключения внешних устройств и адаптации ввода/вывода приложений под имеющиеся ресурсы Winking smileИ одним из таких важных шагов в преобразовании концепции смартфона – является технология Continuum в Windows 10 Mobile. И лично я сейчас с большим удовлетворением использую возможности Continuum для повседневной работы… Winking smile

    Обзор Microsoft Lumia 950 XL, ч.04 -  достаем из коробки Microsoft Display Dock HD-500 для Continuum

    Распаковка док-станции от Microsoft - Display Dock HD-500, которая предназначена для подключения устройств под управлением Windows 10 Mobile к внешнему монитору и внешним же периферийным устройствам - таким, как клавиатура, мышка, USB-накопители и т.п. - в режиме рабочего стола - Continuum.

    Про сам Continuum я уже немного рассказывал в кратком обзоре прототипа Microsoft Lumia 950 XL здесьи могу заверить, что несколько следующих обзоров Microsoft Lumia 950 XL на этой неделе будут посвящены именно режиму Continuum и работе приложений в нем.

    Вкратце напомню, что режим Windows 10 Continuum позволяет телефону использовать второй монитор, как полноценный рабочий стол и все новые приложения будут запускаться не в режиме телефона, а в режиме десктопа Windows 10. Это дает возможность полноценной работы с приложениями типа Microsoft Office или мультимедиа и периферией.

    Сама док-станция Microsoft Display Dock HD-500 сейчас идет в комплекте бесплатно при покупке Microsoft Lumia 950 XL, так что поторопитесь ;)

    image
    Обзор Microsoft Lumia 950 XL, ч.04 -  достаем из коробки Microsoft Display Dock HD-500 для Continuum

    В коробке с Microsoft Display Dock HD-500 вы найдетесобственно саму док-станцию, шнурок USB Type C/Type C для подключения смартфонов с поддержкой Continuum и соответствующим разъемом Type C (сейчас это модели Microsoft Lumia 950 и Microsoft Lumia 950 XL, а в дальнейшем - все модели на процессорах класса Qualcomm MSM8952, MSM8992, MSM8994 или новее/мощнее), блок питания с выходом на 5В/3А - также с разъемом USB Type C (что позволяет заряжать телефоны и напрямую, без док-станции) и краткая инструкция. HDMI или DisplayPort кабели в комплект Microsoft Display Dock не входят, а жаль - у Microsoft в комплекте того же XBOX One отличный HDMI-кабель ;)

    Сам Display Dock HD-500 - довольно таки увесистая коробочка (думаю, для того, чтобы ее не стягивали кабели и рывки всяких клавиатур - чему способствует и прорезиненное основание), на лицевой стороне которой - разъем USB Type C для подключения телефона, а на противоположной - 3 разъема USB 3 для подключения различной периферии, HDMI и DisplayPort выходы (работать будет при этом только один из них) и разъем для подключения внешнего блока питания (который достаточно мощный, чтобы без проблем потянуть сразу 2 внешних жестких диска 2,5").

    "Заводится" это дело сразу по подключению Display Dock к смартфону с поддержкой Continuum. Та же Microsoft Lumia 950 XL запускает мастер первого подключения Continuum, где вы настраиваете размер экрана внешнего монитора.

    И Continuum готов к работе... А как это все работает - смотрите в следующих обзорах Microsoft Lumia 950 XL - практическую и теоретическую часть о работе Microsoft Display Dock и Continuum... Да, и World of Tanks BLITZ в Continuumтоже покажу, хотя лучше “это” и не видеть  Winking smile

    Обзор Microsoft Lumia 950 XL, ч.05 -  демо Continuum с WoT BLITZ и другими играми ;)

    В этом обзоре Microsoft Lumia 950 XL и технологии Continuumрешил "убить сразу 2х зайцев" - и про Continuum наглядно рассказать и протестировать скорость работы World of Tanks BLITZ на Microsoft Lumia 950 XL.

    Честно, такой криворукости от "программистов" и прочих "архитекторов" Wargaming было сложно ожидать - но они “пробили очередное дно”, даже не удосужившись познакомиться с возможностями платформы, на которую портировали WoT BLITZ... Какую новую функцию Windows 10 Mobile не возьми - ничего не работает... Но обо всем - по порядку ;)

    Итак, "простой" запуск World of Tanks BLITZ на Lumia 950 XL - имеется ввиду просто на экране телефона - показал 40 fps при высоких настройках WoT BLITZ. Бегало все шустренько и красивенько. Так что любители "танчиков" оценят телефон по достоинству ;) Хотя, как я уже говорил в обзоре WoT BLITZ на разных устройствах - играть на тачэкране - то еще "удовольствие" и лучше всего иметь аппаратные клавиши для комфортной игры в WoT BLITZ - как у той же NVIDIA Shield Portable .

    image
    Обзор Microsoft Lumia 950 XL, ч.05 -  демо Continuum с WoT BLITZ и другими играми ;)

    В общем, с WoT BLITZ на "родном" экране Lumia 950 XL сравилась хорошо. Чего нельзя сказать о Continuum (хотя тут вина н Continuum, а “криворукости” программистов).

    Нет, визуально все работало идеально - WoT BLITZ в Continuum на Lumia 950 XL смотрится суперово - почти что "большая" игра.

    НО - Continuum, как я уже говорил в предыдущем обзоре Lumia 950 XL и распаковке Microsoft Display Dock для Continuum - это не только большой внешний экран и возможность подключить внешние устройства, это еще и умение программ с этим работать.

    Так вот, еще в обзоре WoT BLITZ на Windows 10 Mobile - я обратил внимание, что, не смотря на поддержку Bluetooth клавиатур/мышек в Windows 10 Mobile - WoT BLITZ вообще их не использует (даже при том, что WoT BLITZ на планшетах с Windows 10 - вполне отлично живет с периферией). Сложилось такое впечатление, что "кодеры" просто пересобрали какую-то сборку WoT BLITZ под Windows 10 Mobile без учета возможностей платформы и без какой-либо оптимизации... И даже не протестировали позже.

    Тоже получилось и с режимом Continuum у WoT BLITZ. Да, картинка на "большом" внешнем мониторе - красивая... И - ВСЕ! Никаких клавиатур, мышей WoT BLITZ не видит и, как результат - играть в WoT BLITZ на Continuum весьма и весьма проблематично - поскольку тач-экрана на мониторе нет, а эмулировать это все движениями мыши - замучаешься.

    Попробовал запустить WoT BLITZ на большом экране в режиме проецирования с Lumia 950 XL на ТВ через Miracast. И здесь меня ждал облом в “лучших традициях” кривых игрушек Wargaming - это когда у них при изменении разрешения экрана "рвет" интерфейс и элементы "разъезжаются". Так себя повел и WoT BLITZ при зеркалировании через Miracast – попасть в нужный элемент экрана просто не получалось… Кодеры, такие они суровые кодеры-“проффесионалы”.

    Так что пока - ждем от Wargaming исправления таких вот существенных недочетов в работе WoT BLITZ под Windows 10 Mobile вообще и Continuum в частности. А еще, желательно, и оптимизировать игру под возможности платформы и железа.

    Разочаровавшись в кодерах Wargaming - залез в Инет и нашел на форуме список игр и программ, которые поддерживают Continuum (надеюсь, его народ будет обновлять и дальше).

    Установил на Lumia 950 XL и погонял пару игр из этого списка в Continuum - вот у них все работало, как и должно работать в Continuum - с поддержкой мыши, клавы и т.д. Чувствуется профессиональный подход к разработке и тестированию приложений, в отличие от "подмастерий", набранных по объявлению "нужен программист" в Wargaming.

    Или просто Wargaming'у уже не хватает донатов с "большого" WoT - так они решили “срубить побыстрому бабла” на Windows 10 Mobile?

    А продолжение обзоров возможностей режима Continuum в Windows 10 Mobile - теоретическую часть про Continuum и практическое применение - смотрите в следующих выпусках обзоров Microsoft Lumia 950 XL.

    Обзор Microsoft Lumia 950 XL, ч.06 - технические сценарии и требования Continuum, беспроводной режим – работа Continuum через Miracast

    Чтобы все интересующиеся возможностями Windows 10 Mobile вообще и Continuum c Microsoft Lumia 950 XL в частностилучше понимали сценарии применения и технические требования Continuum к аппаратному обеспечению телефона и устройств подключения - записал небольшую презентацию Continuum c демо на Microsoft Lumia 950 XL (вернее, презентация Continuum получилась большой - и я ее разбил на 2 части).

    image
    Обзор Microsoft Lumia 950 XL, ч.06 - технические сценарии и требования Continuum, беспроводной режим

    Сценариев подключения смартфонов на Windows 10 Mobile к внешним устройствам - монитору, клавиатуре, мыше - несколько.

    Что же касается телефонов, которые смогут работать с Continuum, то к их "железу" предъявляются достаточно простые и понятные технические требования:

    • ЦПУ: Qualcomm MSM8952 (Snapdragon 617), MSM8992 (Snapdragon 808), MSM8994 (Snapdragon 810) или более старших версий
    • ОЗУ: 2ГБ для 720p внешнего экрана, 3ГБ для 1080p
    • Хранилище: минимум 16ГБ в телефоне
    • поддержка Miracast и/или USB 3.0

    Для работы с Continuum к бепроводным устройствам Miracast требования следующие:

    • 802.11n. Wi-Fi Direct Services (WFDS)
    • Время отклика - ≤80 msec


    И, конечно же - смотрите демо работы Continuum в беспроводном режиме с Microsoft Lumia 950 XL. Вторая часть - про работу Continuum с док-станцией и использование приложений с "больших компьютеров" - типа Microsoft Office 2016 - смотрите во второй части обзора возможностей Continuum на Microsoft Lumia 950 XL.

    Да, и я в обзоре обещал линк на свою статью о том, что такие устройства должны появиться – вот, пожалуйста, статья – почти 10 лет назад написаноWinking smile

    Обзор Microsoft Lumia 950 XL, ч.07 - работа Continuum с Remote Desktop - запуск "больших" программ типа Microsoft Office 2016

    Продолжаем тему обзоров и тестов Continuum в Windows 10 Mobile на Microsoft Lumia 950 XL Winking smileВ этом, заключительном, видео подробных обзоров Continuum, поговорим более подробно уже о сценариях применения Continuum в повседневной жизни и работе.

    А поскольку Continuum направлен в первую очередь на замену рабочего места обычного бизнес-пользователя, значит - Continuum должен запускать и принятые в данной среде задачи - типа офисных пакетов для работы с документами, почтой и календарем или клиентские приложения корпоративных бизнес-систем.

    image
    Обзор Microsoft Lumia 950 XL, ч.07 - работа Continuum с Remote Desktop - запуск "больших" программ

    И здесь процесс развития Continuum идет по двум направлениям.

    • Первое - эволюционное - это переработка приложений, которые уже существуют для Windows 10 Mobile, с поддержкой Continuum. Некоторые бизнес-приложения уже обзавелись такой поддержкой. Например, Microsoft Office Mobile - поддерживает режим Continuum, как и клиенты разных ERP. Список всех приложений, работающих с Continuum, можно найти на форуме здесь.
    • Второе направление - революциолнное - это переосмысление корпоративной инфраструктуры и "роли ПК" в ней, как и способов доставки корпоративных приложений пользователям и распределение вычислительных ресурсов. И здесь такие сервисы, как удаленная работа с приложениями на серверах Remote Desktop/Remote Applications Services - выходит на первый план. Теперь мобильный телефон сможет стать универсальным тонким клиентом для удаленного рабочего стола, позволяя пользователям работать абсолютно комфортно с корпоративными приложениями в офисе благодаря режиму Continuum и оставаться на связи вне офиса.

    А если учитывать появление такого облачного сервиса, как Azure RemoteApps ( что такое Azure RemoteApps и как это работает – смотрите здесь), который позволяет администраторам развернуть службу удаленных приложений  за 15 минут без каких либо капитальных затрат в оборудование и инфраструктуру - то перспектива развития "пост ПК" в новом направлении - "телефон в кармане, рабочее место на столе" - как это позволяет Continuum - самая радужная.

    Поэтому появление поддержки Continuum в новой версии клиента Microsoft Remote Desktop - очень и очень радует. Это как раз существенный шаг в превращении Microsoft Windows 10 Mobile в "универсальный терминал" для бизнес-пользователей.

    И поэтому я сделал в этом видео про Continuum в демо такой упор именно на работу с Remote Desktop на Microsoft Lumia 950 XL. Смотрите...

    А я буду заканчивать эту итерацию обзоров Continuumи переходить к обзорам других возможностей Windows 10 Mobile и Microsoft Lumia 950 XL.

    Но я буду следить за развитием Continuum и время от времени возвращаться к этой теме - посмотрим, насколько Continuum найдет отклик в серцах разработчиков и корпоративных пользователей ;)

     

    Все обзоры Microsoft Lumia 950 XL и Windows 10 Mobile будут в этом плейлисте, и не забывайте также о подробных обзорах бюджетной Microsoft Lumia 550 на моем канале. А в перерывах между обзорами Microsoft Lumia 950 XL - смотрите обзоры и тестирование новых дешевых бюджетных китайских планшетов на Intel Atom X5 Z8300 и Intel Atom X7 Z8700 под уравлением Windows 10.

    Surface vereint nicht nur Tablet und Laptop in einem Gerät. Für Kreative bedeutet das 2in1-Gerät das Beste aus zwei Welten – sprich alle Features aus Desktop-Programmen mit der intuitiven Kreativität der Touch-Bedienung auf einem Device. Dazu noch die Präzision eines druckempfindlichen Stifts. Das ergibt zum Beispiel in Illustrator ein völlig neues Zeichengefühl.

    Wenn ein Kreativer am Desktop-PC gestaltet, kann er alle Möglichkeiten ausschöpfen, die Programme wie Photoshop oder Illustrator bieten. Ein Kompromiss ist hier aber oft die Bedienung mit der Maus. Sie ist beim Zeichen eigentlich eine unnatürliche Art zu arbeiten – nicht umsonst fangen kreative Ideen meistens mit Bleistift und Papier an. Ein Tablet dagegen ermöglicht die intuitive Bedienung via Touch, jedoch nur in speziellen Mobil-Apps. Diese sind auf die schwächeren Prozessoren der Geräte angepasst und daher oft nur reduzierte Versionen der Desktop-Programme. Zudem ist das Tablet eigentlich dafür gemacht, Medien zu konsumieren, nicht selbst zu gestalten.


    Um beide Welten – die Touch-Bedienung vom Tablet und die Rechenpower vom PC – zusammenzubringen, haben die Teams von Adobe und Microsoft zusammengearbeitet. Ziel war es, die volle Power der Kreativprogramme mobil verfügbar zu machen. Geräte wie Surface Pro 4 und Surface Book sind die Brücke zwischen den Welten: So leicht wie ein Tablet, aber so leistungsfähig wie ein Profi-PC. Auf der Microsoft-Hardware laufen die Standard-Werkzeuge der Kreativprofis wie Photoshop, Illustrator und InDesign, sie können aber per Touch und mit dem Stift bedient werden. Damit bietet Microsoft die einzige Hardware auf dem Markt, die für diese Arbeitsweise alles mitbringt.

    Kreativ ohne Abstriche, aber mit Touch-Modus
    Kreative können auf Surface ihre Creative Cloud-Applikationen wie vom Desktop gewohnt installieren und mit der Maus oder dem Trackpad der Surface-Tastatur bedienen. Für die Touch-Bedienung sind die Programme mit kleinen Bedienelementen und Schiebereglern jedoch nicht ausgelegt. Deswegen kann der Designer zum Beispiel wenn es ans Zeichnen oder Gestalten von Vektorgrafiken geht, in die spezielle Touch-Arbeitsumgebung wechseln, die Creative Cloud-Programme nur auf dem Surface anbieten.


    Die Touch-Umgebung macht mit Gesten das Gestalten viel einfacher: In Illustrator ist es einfach Vektorgrafiken mit dem präzisen Stift zu zeichnen. Pfade können einfach mit dem Finger „angefasst“ und „verformt“ werden. Das ergibt eine viel natürlichere Art zu gestalten, wie sie zuvor noch nie möglich war. „Das Schöne an Touch in Illustrator CC ist die Möglichkeit die Artworks viel organischer zu bearbeiten. Zuvor haben wir Dinge entweder sehr starr oder mit Beziér-Kurven gezeichnet (die mit einigen Einschränkungen kommen). Jetzt sieht alles viel mehr handgezeichnet aus“, schreibt dazu Designerin Sue Garibaldi über ihre ersten Erfahrungen mit der neuen Arbeitsweise in den Adobe-Blogs.

     Die Touch-Umgebung von Illustrator erlaubt "Design zum Anfassen" mit dem Touchscreen und Stift.

    Auch in Photoshop gelingen Retuschen mit dem Stift so einfach und natürlich wie noch nie. Airbrush-Retuschen, Reparaturpinsel und andere Malwerkzeuge können Nutzer einfach direkt auf die Leinwand oder das Foto auftragen. Die 1024 Druckstufen und der ergonomische Stift liefern ein natürliches Zeichengefühl. Dafür ist auch die Rechenleistung der Surface-Hardware verantwortlich, die Stiftbewegungen ohne Verzögerung in Pinselstriche übersetzen kann. Auch die besonders dünne Glasoberfläche des Surface-Bildschirms, sowie seine hervorragende Qualität bei Farbwiedergabe und Auflösung, tragen dazu bei. Die Farbe scheint direkt aus dem Surface-Stift zu fließen, sodass man schnell vergisst, dass man überhaupt digital zeichnet. Beim flüssigen Arbeiten helfen zum Beispiel auch Fingergesten zum Ein- und Auszoomen im Bild, indem man einfach zwei Finger auseinanderzieht oder das Motiv weiter schiebt. Ein Wischen nach links macht die Aktion rückgängig.

     In Photoshop gelingen Zeichnungen und Bildretuschen so intuitiv wie noch nie.

    In InDesign lassen sich Layoutelemente wie Rahmen, Formen und Bildrahmen einfach per Stift oder Geste erzeugen. Zeichnen Anwender freihand einen Kasten, verwandelt InDesign ihn in einen Bildrahmen. Schnell ein paar Textrahmen mit Blindtext dazu – fertig ist der Layoutentwurf. Neben der Stiftbedienung sind in den Touch-Umgebungen die Bedienelemente entsprechend größer, so dass sie mit Stift oder Finger mühelos bedienbar sind. Mit einem Klick aufs Touch-Pad wechselt das Device in den Desktop Modus zum Verfeinern der Groblayouts.

     In InDesign verwandeln sich mit dem Stift gezeichnete Linien in Layoutrahmen.

    Die Zukunft der Kreativsoftware heißt Touch und Desktop-Power
    Die Kooperation zwischen Adobe und Microsoft hat schon neue Hardware wie das Surface Pro 4, Surface Book und neue Touch-Oberflächen für Photoshop hervorgebracht. Mit Surface kann heute schon jeder das Potenzial von leistungsfähiger PC-Power zusammen mit Stift- und Touch-Bedienung nutzen.


    Doch diese Entwicklung wird noch viel mehr Veränderungen in der Art bringen, wie wir Kreativsoftware bedienen. Welches Potenzial in Adobe Software auf der Surface-Hardware steckt, zeigt das Video „The future of Adobe creative applications on Microsoft devices“. Die Zukunft ist, dass Designer bald wieder so natürlich wie in der realen Welt arbeiten können: Indem sie Dinge anfassen, verformen, verschieben, mit den Händen bewegen und Farbe verwischen. Die Verschmelzung von Touch und leistungsfähiger Hardware in Microsoft Surface ist der erste wichtige Schritt in Richtung Zukunft und schon jetzt für jeden verfügbar.

    Cloud or Cloud computing is a term that has dominated the media. Even those who do not work directly with technology must have heard it too. It's hard to spend a day without hearing someone comment on. And you? What do you mean by cloud computing?

    Recently, a friend who works in the area, said:
    "- My relatives ask what I do at work, but I cannot adequately explain. What to say so when my grandmother one day asked me: "


    How would you explain that for someone doesn't have computer skills? Your Grandma, for example?

    Since it’s Friday, let’s have a non-technical post.  You will likely have realized that I have some OCD and language issues.  This can come through in various forms, it may be how someone insists on saying “anyways” rather than anyway, or the latest internal Microspeak babble.  Raymond Chen has a dedicated tag to track the Microspeak nonsense which he hears.  His blog is well worth a read even if you are not a developer!

    Anyway – rant on…. 

    Since we launched Office 365, the term on-premises was used to describe the infrastructure and services which operate in the customer's datacentre.  This is commonly transposed to “premise” or “on-premise”.   This has been around for a while, but recently I've started seeing a new one. 

    Your portion or environment within the overall Office 365 service is called a tenant.  Depending upon what you purchased controls the services and features available within your tenant, and by extension to your users.  Recently I’ve seen people start to call it an Office 365 “tenent” – note the lack of an ‘a’. 

    Interesting enough the words “tenant” and “premise” are related since they both refer to the notion of an idea or belief.

    Cheers,

    I am in the middle of preparing for some more events the next big one being a day of machine learning (ML) at SQL Saturday Exeter.  The organisers asked me to make a short video to explain what I’ll be covering and that got me to thinking about what my advice would be having worked with the tool for a good year.

    What’s the question?  Unlike many aspects of BI and data mining we are not on a fishing expedition, and although ML can just be use to explore data with its built in tools or via your own Python / R scripts that is not what is was designed for.  The typical use cases for ML - predictive maintenance, customer churn, sentiment analysis are all about answering very specific questions when will a part fail, which customers am I about to loose, was that tweet being nice about me or not?

    Does the answer lead to action? At recent briefing on ethics in medical data one of the speaker remarked that a significant factor in patients not completing their treatment was their credit card rating , the lower it was the more likely they would drop out.  The problem is that it’s not easy to see what to do about that (no suggestions please), whereas in more typical customer churn scenarios, we might setup some sort of offer to retain those at risk. 

    For me this is why ML has not quite taken in many organisation as expected based on the massive interest in it – It wows everyone but then it becomes of a question of applying it in organisations. Having said that I think a massive area is process automation and checking e.g. in contracts and financial approvals to detect fraud and spot mistakes.

    ML is not perfect.  We are very used to humans making mistakes indeed I would argue unless you made a mistake today you haven’t learnt anything. Learning machines also make mistakes - they can’t perfectly recognise speech or images for example. However they are starting to equal or out perform us in some of these areas.  My point here is to have a process in place to handle this. Say we are in the business of approving  loan applications -  If ML is not confident of the outcome it will have a mid-range confidence value (say 0.33 to 0.66), where a lower score will automatically be rejected and a higher one accepted.  For the mid range values we might then refer it to a human to decide.  Similarly if ML can’t decode the postcode on a letter then maybe a human can- but then again in image recognition ML has ben proved to be better at humans when it comes to recognising objects and faces.

    ML needs to be retrained.  An example is the way to explain this – an algorithm for basket recommendation maybe superb but when new products appear there are no patterns to follow and even if they are these may not be typical behaviour.  So for production you’ll need a process to do this retraining and ideally this should be programmatic rather than interactive.  This is not any harder than consuming an API as you would to make a prediction. However in this case it’s a batch call with your training set as the argument.

    Algorithmsare about numbers not industries.  The patient not following though on treatment, the student dropping out of a course are just like the customer churn long used in retail and the same algorithms will work equally well in these other areas as all ML is doing is comparing correlations of factors against what we are trying to predict.  Similarly anomaly detection works for bank fraud and for predictive maintenance

    Not your normal neural network.  Buried in the neural network module in ML is ability to do deep learning using a special scripting language net# (nothing to do with .Net really). It is more for the hardened data scientist and if you want to know more check this session at last year’s Cortana Analytics Workshop.

    ChChChanges.  ML is continually evolving and this is important for two reasons, one check back regularly to see what has been added, and two if you have feedback then share it to drive features you feel you need.  A good example of this is the much deeper support for Python in ML.  However I am more interested in seeing more algorithms e.g. time series analysis and more OpenCV modules to handle images, both of which will mean we should be writing less of our own code anyway.

    Do Something.  The only way to begin to see the potential of ML in your organisation is to try it. Yes you need a question, yes you need data, and yes you do need to be scientific in your approach to the problem.  However you don’t need to be a full on data scientist, you just need their curiosity, added to you data wrangling skills and business knowledge.  The Cortana Analytics Gallery is awash with interesting business based scenarios and tutorials to help you, so don’t just sit there…

    Today’s Tip…

    Geo-replication has gotten some love recently. We have added the ability to manage geo-replication via T-SQL instead of just the portal and PowerShell. We added a failover/failback concept which will allow for DR drills without completely breaking down your replication. We also now allow for the secondary database to be a lower service object tier.

    You can read all about the changes here: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/spotlight-on-new-capabilities-of-azure-sql-database-geo-replication/

    Consider a scenario where a Wi-Fi or VPN profile is pushed either via Configuration Manager or Intune to Windows Phone 10. Profile is configured to use SCEP profile – Certificate for authentication. You can see the profile on device but it fails to connect. Thanks to a colleague in Windows Phone team who suggested this may happen if more than one certificate is present on the device that has at least one same Enhanced Key Usage or an Application Policy as in the certificate pushed via SCEP profile. You can check this by installing Certificates application from Store on device. Look under Personal store.

    What’s the solution?

    You can add a unique Application Policy to certificate template and configure the profile to use it to fix the problem. See detailed steps below. I’ll use a Wi-Fi profile in Configuration Manager as an example.

    1. Edit the certificate template used in SCEP profile.

    2. Select Application Policies and click on Edit.

    image

    3. Click on Add.

    clip_image004

    4. Click on New and Type a Name. Copy and Paste Object Identifier in a txt file. You will need this later. Click on OK and OK again.

    clip_image006

    clip_image008

    5. Select newly added Application Policy and click on OK.

    clip_image010

    6. You should now see new Application Policy listed along with existing ones. Click on OK.

    clip_image012

    7. Click on Apply and then OK.

    clip_image014

    8. Open Configuration Manager console. Refresh Certificate template in SCEP profile linked with Wi-Fi profile. You should now see newly added OID (Step 4) under Enhanced Key usage. Click on Apply and OK.

    (To refresh settings – Select some other template, click on Apply and then Select NDES template again.)

    clip_image016

    9. Edit Wi-Fi profile. Under Security Configuration tab click on Configure.

    clip_image018

    10. Click on Advanced in Smart card or other Certificate Properties dialog box.

    clip_image020

    11. Click on Add, Add again, Paste Name and OID of EKU from txt file created in Step 4. Click on OK and OK again.

    clip_image022

    12. Ensure newly added EKU is listed. Click on OK and wait for ~15 minutes for changes to be uploaded to Intune alternatively you can restart SMS_DMP_Uploader thread from Service Manager.

    clip_image024

    13. Enrol a WP 10 device and check if it now connects to company Wi-Fi.

    Note: Steps would largely be the same for standalone Intune apart from adding an additional EKU in profile. If you use an XML to push Wi-Fi or VPN profile than add new EKU in following section:

    <EKUMapping><EKUMap><EKUName>MobCert</EKUName><EKUOID>1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1</EKUOID></EKUMap></EKUMapping>

    This particular blog is going to handle how to deal with Text queries appearing in the Compatibility Report.

    "Compatibility Report
    Text Queries
    But you can see all the content in this workbook by
    Opening the file in Excel."

     

    You can fix this several different ways.

    1. Edit a Copy, which will remove the unsupported feature.

    2. If you know where the Text query is, you can remove the query definition.

    3. If you cannot locate the text query, you can use our tool to locate it, and then remove it.


    1. Edit a Copy, which will remove the unsupported feature.

    You will be prompted "Edit a Copy"

    You can then create a Copy.

    This will create a clean version of the workbook without any unsupported features.  It will also keep the Original workbook in the event the removal of these features broke your workbook.

    2. If you know where the Text query is, you can remove the query definition.

    You can right click on the table and untick Query definition > Save query definition under External Data Range Properties.

    You can click a cell in the data range > Data tab > Properties > untick Save query definition


    3. If you cannot locate the text query, you can use our tool to locate it, and then remove it.

    Run the attached add-in (simply double click ListQT.xlam when your bad workbook is open).  You will now see a List Query Tables tab.  You can then choose the List QueryTables chunk and this will show you the Query Table sheet and range.   You can either delete it from the add-in or browse the locate and follow the steps in #2.

     

    (Please visit the site to view this file)

    Disclaimer: this add-in is provided to you as courtesy and is "as-is".  Anytime you are making changes to a workbook, it is recommended to create a backup in case you need to revert your changes.rrrr

  • 02/26/16--13:16: OSI model.
  • OSI is a sevel layer conceptual model that is logically used to present the logical layers between which the data is going to travel. the below seven layers are described below:

    Upper data layer:

    it contains of three top layers of OSI: 

    1. Application layer, the top layer that actually contains applications like telnet, http, DNS or any other layer that actually is responsible for starting the communication or with whom the user directly interacts. 

    2. Presentation layer: this layer provides the context for the communication like the ASCII characters or the ASCII characters, and SSL comes here. 

    3. Sessions layer; responsible for the creating the sessions between the computer, netbios and sap. 

    4. transport layer: TCP and UDP resides here, this layer is responsible for the segmenting the data, end to end connection and reliability is a consideration along with flow control.  

    5. network layer: the data is further broken into the packets. IPv4 and IPv6 work here. data is broken into packets. Routing and switching happens at this layer.  

    6. Data link layer: Provides the connection between the two hosts that are in the same subnet, componenets like MAC address resides here. 

    7. Physical layer: the layer where actual data is transmitted across. it includes all the cabling and other hardware stuff.

    Today I share a script to automate all of the manual steps involved with setting up the Active Directory PowerShell module on your Windows 10 workstation.

    Clickety, Click. Scripty, script.

    I recently reloaded my everyday work laptop. After three years it had in-place upgrades from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. You can imagine that we dogfood a lot of software as Microsoft employees, so it was well past time for a reload.

    As part of this I had to set up the Active Directory module. Since the process was more than one quick step, I decide this deserves a script to help everyone else in the world as well. How many steps does it take?

    • Find and download the CPU-architecture-appropriate Windows 10 RSAT package (Remote Server Administration Tools)
    • Install the RSAT
    • Enable the Active Directory PowerShell feature
    • Update-Help for the AD module

    This is mostly a one-time task, except for updating the module help. Generally I only script things that are more repeatable. However, I know many of you like to reload your laptop on a regular basis. I also know that lots of people are deploying Windows 10 right now. So this seemed like a good community service project.

    The Script

    This script needs to run from an elevated ISE or console session, since it is configuring your system. Obviously it will only run on Windows 10, because that is the goal.

    Like any good PowerShell scripter I borrowed code from various sources on the internet. I included comments with the links where I found handy code for downloading a file, installing a hotfix, etc.

    Rather than explain the entire script line-by-line, I’ll provide the interesting parts here with comments. DO NOT copy/paste/run the code below.  It is not complete. Use the download link at the bottom of this post to get a copy of the full script.

    #requires -RunAsAdministrator
    
    # Is the OS Windows 10?
    If ((Get-CimInstance Win32_OperatingSystem).Caption -like "*Windows 10*")
    
    # Is the RSAT already installed?
    If (Get-HotFix -Id KB2693643 -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue)
    
    # Is this x86 or x64 CPU?
    If ((Get-CimInstance Win32_ComputerSystem).SystemType -like "x64*")
    
    # Download the hotfix for RSAT install
    $WebClient = New-Object System.Net.WebClient
    $WebClient.DownloadFile($URL,$Destination)
    $WebClient.Dispose()
    
    # Install the hotfix. No native PowerShell way that I could find.
    # wusa.exe returns immediately. Loop until install complete.
    wusa.exe $Destination /quiet /norestart /log:$home\Documents\RSAT.log
    do {
        Write-Host "." -NoNewline
        Start-Sleep -Seconds 3
    } until (Get-HotFix -Id KB2693643 -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue)
    
    # Double-check that the role is enabled after install.
    If ((Get-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName `
        RSATClient-Roles-AD-Powershell -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue).State `
        -eq 'Enabled') {
    
        Write-Verbose '---RSAT AD PowerShell already enabled'
    
    } Else {
    
        Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName `
             RSATClient-Roles-AD-Powershell
    }
    
    # Install the help
    Update-Help -Module ActiveDirectory -Verbose -Force
    
    # Optionally verify the install.
    dir (Join-Path -Path $HOME -ChildPath Downloads\*msu)
    Get-HotFix -Id KB2693643
    Get-Help Get-ADDomain
    Get-ADDomain
    
    

    I turned this into a function with full help and verbose output. I always like watching the blue verbose scroll as PowerShell runs. You get that sense of satisfaction that everything in the world is good when you watch your own code perform. #nerdthrills
