On Dec. 17, Microsoft’s Innovation & Policy Center in Washington, D.C. assembled panelists from the New America Foundation, Texas Instruments, the Institute for Complex Systems Simulation and Lerman Senter PLLC law firm to offer insight into the current state of affairs in the field of unlicensed spectrum use.
Panelists participated in a wide ranging conversation, which included topics such as the potential uses of spectrum white spaces, the state of standards work, the policy issues pending before the FCC and the potential economic value of unlicensed use in the TV band. The experts sorted through the myths and promises of TV white spaces in order to discover what it will take to make robust unlicensed TV band use a reality.
In a new video, above, Major Nelson walks Xbox One users through the easy steps of using Upload Studio, where you can not only edit and share videos of your own gaming brilliance, as captured by saying “Xbox: Record that,” but also see videos others have posted.

Set your watch for January 1, 1601, Marty. Today we’re working with crazy dates in Active Directory PowerShell.
If you have ever tried to script out Active Directory reports that included date fields, then you have likely run into this challenge. There are “real” dates, and then “those” dates. You know… the ones that just look like a bunch of numbers. Today’s post shows you how to make sense of those crazy Int64 date fields.

Use Windows PowerShell 4.0 to debug a workflow.
Windows Azure Pack lets you build an application once, then deploy it in any Microsoft cloud, and since it was announced in June 2013, there have been many, many Microsoft blog posts about it. Now you can find those posts in one place to help you get familiar with this technology.
On the Building Clouds blog, Anders Ravnholt writes that just in November and December alone, there were more than 30 posts on the Building Clouds and System Center blogs.
Earlier this month, I published an article here on using PowerShell to perform offline servicing of Windows Updates for a set of VM templates. After publishing the original article, I received a couple of inquiries for extending that PowerShell script to not only apply Windows Updates to offline VM templates, but to also automate the process of first downloading Windows Updates. In doing so, this accelerates the process for downloading new updates each month and also reduces the chance of human error in not downloading all needed updates.
As it turns out, Alexander Krause from Leibniz Universität Hannover in Germany has already done a lot of the “heavy-lifting” for us in automating this process with a PowerShell module that he released on the TechNet Script Center earlier this year. In this article, I’ll step through the process of using Alexander’s module to automate the downloading of updates for Windows Server 2012 VM Templates.
Hello friends, legendary anchorman Ron Burgundy is here with the Anchorman 2 app for Windows Phone 8 devices, and I’m confessing now as a fangirl that I think it’s a keeper – the perfect chaser to “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.”
The latest Microsoft Security Intelligence Report, volume 15, is available via a new version of the SIR app that runs on Windows 7- and Windows 8-based systems.
The original app, launched a few months ago, was “designed to provide customers with an enhanced way to access the vast amount of threat intelligence,” writes Tim Rains, Trustworthy Computing director, on the Microsoft Security Blog.
