Let’s go completely off topic today and talk about Bing . What (you might ask) does Bing have to do with System Center?  Nothing directly, but it might make you more productive.  The feature I really like is being able to call Bing from my cell while I’m driving and get a friendly voice, directions read or text’d to me, directly connected to the person or business I want (for FREE), and even getting information on Weather, Movie Times, and placed to eat.  I was meeting a friend for lunch today, and had never been to this particular restaurant. My friend gave me vague directions via e-mail, and I ran out the door.  I had a the name of the restaurant, and a general idea of where it was.  Guess what?  It wasn’t there!   I called Bing, and got directions verbally, then texted to me, and then Bing offered to call the restaurant so I could tell my friend I was running late!  WOW!  Check it out!
