Social Media And All Of Us

Social Media – To what extent does Social Media impact our lives today? How often do you walk around in town and see people on their smartphones. How many likes does your status update get? How many retweets do you receive? How many followers do you have? Are you the mayor of this place or that? Can you create a great Vine using stop motion?

Windows 8.1 Preview Available Featured

Windows 8.1 Preview is here. Get a feel for the OS with a first-hand look at many of the new features and improvements with the Windows 8.1 Preview. Brandon LeBlanc discusses Windows 8.1 Preview in more detail in today’s featured link, so be sure to check it out especially if you can’t wait for the final (free) release later this year.

Then Microsoft’s CEO Steve Ballmer made an announcement that Facebook will release an official Windows 8 application in the near future. Unfortunately no time frame was specified. Lastly Visual Studio 2013 Preview and .NET 4.5.1 Preview is now available. Visual Studio 2012 Update 3 is also now available. So for those who use Visual Studio 2012, be sure to get Update 3 which includes a few new capabilities, but is focused primarily on bug fixes.

We are over the mid-week hump. Have an excellent day! Here is The Daily Six Pack!

Windows 8.1 Preview Featured

Windows 8.1 Preview will be with us on June 26th. Some of the new features are included in the lock screen, Start screen, All Apps, desktop, Search, SkyDrive, Snap and Photos experiences. Something tells me that Windows 8.1 will be a real doozy! For those that didn’t like Windows 8, why not try Windows 8.1?

Then David Starr talks about the awesome new Visual Studio 2013 HUD feature. Man, that will make me feel like I’m flying a Tomcat instead of working. Then P. Kelley talks about multiple workspaces in Visual Studio.

Then check out the post by Janes Oosthuizen on configuring Instagram to post to your Facebook timeline or a Facebook page you manage. Just be sure to switch off the feature that shares all your Instagram likes to Facebook if you don’t want that to be posted to your timeline. It’s a really nice tip, so be sure to head on over and read the post.

There we go, it’s Thursday! Have a really great one folks. Here is The Daily Six Pack!
