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!
