Use Windows PowerShell to display Windows Defender update status.
In this third in a five-part series, Jennifer Dorsey discusses true collaboration on the Your Dynamic Business blog.
“Today, successful companies need to evolve from simply sharing data to sharing ideas, creating a platform for communicating with every link in the supply chain,” she writes.
You can now download the latest update rollups for both System Center 2012 SP1 and System Center 2012 R2. These provide a cumulative package of fixes for each System Center component and are available from Microsoft Update.
The Indie Game Spotlight is a one-stop shop in the Windows Phone Store that shows off new games from a growing community of independent developers.
ID@Xbox is committed to helping independent developers bring their vision to Xbox One and now, developers can begin using Unreal Engine 4 for creating games.
Unreal Engine 4 provides a suite of tools for content developers including the Blueprint visual scripting system, a visual material editor, the Persona animation system and Matinee timeline-based machinima and cinematics system.
We recently finalized a commissioned Q&A with Amy Konary, IDC’s Vice President of Research on Software Licensing & Pricing. We asked Amy for her expert opinion about the key elements companies should consider to properly align the benefits of cloud based services with the associated licensing agreements.
Ultimately, IDC’s recommendation is “that IT buyers consider the ability of the vendor to support a range of licensing and deployment options across its breadth of products.”
The Microsoft licensing vehicle which best delivers on what are frequently hybrid scenarios is the relatively new Server and Cloud Enrollment (SCE); a new enrollment under the Microsoft Enterprise Agreement that offers the best pricing for customers who make an installed, base-wide commitment to one or more of Microsoft’s server and cloud technologies, with automatic access to Windows Azure and simplified licensing management. You can read more about the SCE in a previous blog post which includes numerous links to additional resources.
The second annual International Women’s Hackathon, which begins Friday and runs through April 27, provides an environment to explore computing and is designed to encourage university women worldwide to become technological innovators and help solve global-scale problems.
The U.S. Department of Labor Statistics predicts that by 2018, 1.4 million U.S. technology jobs will be unfilled. A study has shown that 57 percent of women earn undergraduate degrees, but only 18 percent of them graduate with a computer-science degree. For Rane Johnson-Stempson, principal research director in the Education and Scholarly Communication group with Microsoft Research Connections and co-organizer of the hackathon, the frustrating numbers of women studying computer science represent an opportunity.
The Windows Embedded 8.1 Handheld operating system was recently released to Microsoft partners, as was the Windows Embedded 8.1 Handheld SDK to allow any enterprise or ISV (Independent Software Vendor) developer to build apps for Windows Embedded 8.1 Handheld devices.
Designed to be easy to use, easy to lock down and easy to manage in the Windows environment, Windows Embedded 8.1 Handheld devices make communication and collaboration easy for connecting with customers, collecting data or managing enterprise tasks. Applications written for Windows Phone 8.1 are fully compatible with this enterprise-ready platform.
In observing the 14th annual World Intellectual Property Day April 26, Microsoft joins the other member companies of the Partnership for American Innovation (PAI) to highlight some innovations made possible by the U.S. patent system.
These products total more than $40 billion a year in research and development and support 1.2 million jobs. Microsoft also supports innovators through Microsoft Ventures, Microsoft Innovation Centers and the Garage.

This weekend, on April 26, Microsoft observes the 14th annual World IP Day. On this day, we take the opportunity to reflect on the significant benefits the IP system provides our economy.
This year we join the other member companies of the Partnership for American Innovation (PAI) to highlight just a few of the innovations made possible by the U.S. patent system. Check it out here. These products are supported by the investment of PAI members, totaling more than $40 billion a year in research and development and supporting 1.2 million jobs.
Loren Brill, the founder of Sweet Loren’s in New York City, has had delicious success based on her ready-to-bake desserts made from all-natural cookie dough and brownie batter. She uses her Surface 2 to help run and grow her business by recording cookie recipes, creating presentations and capturing photos of different versions of her cookie creations.
When she isn’t baking or creating a new recipe, Brill also enjoys yoga, and Surface 2 is by her side there, too, with a yoga workout for her to follow, no matter where she is.
You’re a good guy in a bad position in Ubisoft’s “Watch Dogs,” and that means doing some pretty nasty things on the hacking front, including escaping from a crowded baseball stadium by causing a blackout that plunges the stadium into a panic.
The game, due out May 27 for Xbox One and Xbox 360, has a “novel – and sometimes uncomfortable -- game dynamic,” with a focus on hacking, espionage and security, Xbox Wire writes.
Esta última semana foi muito movimentada no TechNet Wiki e no Conselho da Comunidade, vou aproveitar e atualizar um pouco sobre o que estamos trabalhando.
Dois pontos principais: atualização da nossa Home com novos Artigos em Destaque e mudança na liderança do Conselho da Comunidade TechNet Wiki.

By 2018, predicts the U.S. Department of Labor Statistics, 1.4 million technology jobs in the United States will be unfilled. At current rates for issuance of computer-science degrees, only 61 percent of those openings will be filled—and just 29 percent of the applicants for those will be women.It’s quite a disconnect. A study has shown that 57 percent of women earn undergraduate degrees, but only 18 percent of them graduate with a computer-science degree—this in a clean, relatively well-paid industry. Why?Aware of such trends, Microsoft representatives visiting universities across the world have been making pertinent observations, and they have learned that women find it difficult to be recognized for their technical capabilities—and often lack confidence in those abilities. Another factor is that the first couple of years of computer-science studies can be difficult, abstract, and solitary, making it difficult to see how the creativity and collaboration women want in a job might be applicable. In addition, women are motivated to pursue opportunities to make an impact or give back to society, and they don’t see how computer science can help them do so. Finally, there is a death of women in computer-science faculties, so woman undergrads often have no role models.But the situation, while dire, is not hopeless, and therein lies the momentum behind the second annual International Women’s Hackathon, being held April 25-27.
Have you ever had to repopulate a batch of corrupted attributes or properties for a large set of Active Directory objects? (Think Exchange or Lync, for example.) The Active Directory Recycle Bin is great for recovering deleted objects, but it will not help with corrupted objects. Authoritative restore is the textbook option, but there is a better way. Yes, you can buy expensive third-party products to do this, or you can use the free features in the box for your own attribute-level recovery solution for Active Directory. This blog post will explain how.
