I'm changing my tune a bit .. I can see some potential here. But I am still not jumping up and down with anticipation.
Microsoft has been conducting practical research in tracking precise hand movements that will be used to create virtual interfaces that can be applied to just about anything.

What advantage does Windows 7 or 8 have anymore?
Microsoft wants enterprises to upgrade to Windows 10--and the Anniversary Update drives that home with security features that can no longer be ignored.

I don't know why Windows 10 has so many hidden customization features?
Microsoft decided to hide certain system sounds from users in Windows 10. A simple Registry file hack can bring them back. Mark Kaelin explains how.

Do people still have meetings?
Today's workforce expects technology--like video conferencing tools--to be cutting edge. The best enterprises will stay ahead of the curve and deliver. Microsoft thinks it has a plan that will help.

Perhaps I am too much of a control freak, but I don't want my appliances making decisions on my behalf.
IoT creates a massive amount of data that has to be processed, stored, and analyzed. Microsoft wants to be the company that provides the infrastructure--and perhaps even more.

When you get down to it, what are these enterprises actually subscribing to?
Microsoft announced a plan to offer Windows 10 on a subscription basis for enterprises needing additional management services. Is this just the beginning?

Years of fiddling with Word functions can pay off sometimes.
Sorting a long list of terms manually in Word can be tedious in the extreme, but you can tackle the task quickly if you know how to harness the power of the Outline view.

It is time for Microsoft to take some drastic measures - all in or all out.
Microsoft has improved Maps and other apps with mobile-friendly features, but will it be enough to make a difference in sales of Windows 10 smartphones?

Looking for a better way.
The modern workforce spends a good part of the workday using an email client like Outlook. These five add-ins can make that time more productive and much less frustrating.

Introduction
I have 20 years of experience in the electronic publishing industry. I was an editor for CBS Interactive for eleven years, where I was responsible for acquiring, editing, and writing technical content for daily publication on CBS Interactive properties TechRepublic.com and ZDNet.com. My duties include the recruitment and development of contributing talent. Prior to CBS Interactive, I was an editor with ProQuest for 12 years, where I developed, designed, edited, and maintained an array of university and business school supplemental curricula products. Before ProQuest, I was a public accountant for five years, specializing in tax preparation and in compilation and review engagements. In addition, I have performed independent consulting services over the last 30 years for various business clients. I have specialized training in .NET Framework programming, C++, Microsoft Office, Java, XML and HTML.
