Since Microsoft announced the launch of its invitation-only test program for Office 15 in late January, things have been relatively quiet.

Windows 8 Will Deliver a Cloud Service to Rival or Beat iCloud (PCWorld)
In Windows 8 Microsoft will merge its free online storage service SkyDrive and syncing software Mesh to provide the backbone for what looks to be a service that will rival or beat iCloud. In Windows 8, those tools together will automatically sync all your important files to the cloud, and then sync them to your devices. So if you write a Word document, for example, it will get sent to the cloud, and that document will then be available on a Windows Phone, a Windows 8 tablet, or other Windows 8 device. It will also be available from any Internet-connected device.

Oops! HTML5 Does It Again (Web 2.0 Journal)
A multitude of security-related solutions rely upon the ability to extract and examine mime-objects from web-content. HTML5 may significantly impair their ability to do so. The tradeoff between security and performance has long been a known issue across IT organizations. One of the first things to go when performance is unacceptable is a security solution. This isn’t just an IT phenomenon either; consider how many of us have disabled endpoint security solutions like anti-virus scanners to improve performance?

SharePoint – Document and Records Management (Liam Cleary [SharePoint MVP])
Yesterday I presented a Virtual User Group meeting for on Documents and Records Management. Based on this I thought it would be useful to recap my own thoughts on this and where SharePoint really stands. Firstly let's ask ourselves what is document management? In my mind this quote sums up what it is: "Document management controls the life cycle of documents in your organization, from how they are created, reviewed, and published, and how they are ultimately disposed of or retained as records".

Project Management Central Minor Release for R3.0: New In-place Upgrade to SharePoint 2010 Version, and Additional Workflow (The Bamboo Team Blog)
I recently got around to finally sunsetting my old phone, choosing to refresh it with a new iPhone. Wow, there are so many cool things I can do with just a single touch. My iPhone experience reminds me of being able to take advantage of the features and capabilities that are offered in SharePoint 2010 as compared to SharePoint 2007. I'm pleased to announce that in the new minor release for PM Central R3.0, we provide the ability for you to do an in-place upgrade to move your content from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010 and not only take advantage of the features in SharePoint 2010, but also the essential features in PM Central R3.0.

Building SharePoint Applications with InfoPath 2010 (Part 2 of 2) (MSDN)
Now that you are familiar with some best practices in creating a SharePoint application that uses InfoPath 2010, it is time to apply what you have learned. This section is a walkthrough for a simple hardware request solution. In this scenario, the user fills out a request for one or more hardware components. The form template that is used identifies the requestor and an approver. By default, the approver is the requestor's manager. However, the requestor can select a different approver if they know that the manager will be unavailable. The requestor submits the form, which then triggers a workflow. In turn, the workflow notifies the approver that a new hardware request was submitted. For this walkthrough, you will design a form template, publish the template to a SharePoint Server, and then build a SharePoint Designer workflow that notifies the approver accordingly.
