Inside the New Office 2013 and SharePoint 2013 Cloud Apps (RedmondMag)
While it may sound too good to be true, Microsoft's new app model for Office 2013 and SharePoint 2013, introduced back in July, promises to let workers run third-party vendor apps without bogging down Microsoft's software. In the past, apps designed to work with Office or SharePoint could cause performance problems when run on the same server. Under the new app model, these applications run separately, either via the Internet cloud or on the customer's premises.
Is SharePoint Integration a Mandatory WCM Requirement?
There are a lot of opinions about Microsoft Office SharePoint, some favorable and others less so, but no matter the camp you sit in, there is no denying it’s ubiquity in our organizations. According to a recent AIIM (the Association for Information and Image Management professionals) Industry Watch Report “The SharePoint Puzzle,” that ubiquity is here to stay:
The Office 2013 Developers’ Model: Fourth Time’s the Charm? (SmartBear)
With all of computing being re-made around the principle of small, adaptable, networkable, ubiquitous apps, it would appear there’s no room left in the picture for a glorified Excel macro or a homemade PowerPoint transition. That won’t stop Microsoft, however, from promoting Office 2013 as a development platform, this time literally as an alternative to HTML for the deployment of embedded Web apps. If you don’t think of Microsoft Office as a development platform like Java or the .NET Framework, it’s not for Microsoft’s lack of trying. Microsoft earned a reputation for its ability to leverage one platform’s strengths to build another, but has been working - and not especially succeeding - to gather a sizeable community of developers around something BASIC-ish for Office since 1988.
Office 365 Set For 2013 Introduction (LifeHacker)
During the Office 365 for Enterprises session at Microsoft’s TechEd 2012 conference, technical product manager Andy O’Donald said the new version of Office 365 will go into general availability sometime during 2013, and existing customers will be transitioned to it within nine months of its introduction. They will be able to make the move sooner or later, or opt to start by running an internal pilot with a subset of users. Office 365 is the subscription version of Office, and is licensed per user with each given rights to run it on up to five PCs or Macs, plus up to five mobile devices. Office Web Applications or the conventional full-blown applications can be used as desired, but the gap between them is narrowing.
First Flash Patch for Windows 8 to Arrive Sooner Rather Than Later (RedOrbit)
Though October 26th is several weeks away, many have already begun to use Windows 8, Microsoft’s latest desktop and tablet operating system, ahead of its official public release. As is always the case in the techno-sphere, early adopters, though often respected by their peers, are also usually the group to bear the burden of bugs and glitches.
Is Windows Phone 8 Not Ready Yet? (Daily Finance)
When Nokia unveiled its new flagship smartphone earlier this month, the Lumia 920, there was one glaring detail omitted: its release date. The device is an incredibly important step for Nokia's turnaround and transition as its first Microsoft Windows Phone 8 device, yet it declined to say when consumers could even get their hands on the device. According to a recent report from The Verge, the culprit isn't Nokia, but rather its better half -- Microsoft. Windows Phone 8 isn't ready yet.
Microsoft Killing Off Most of its Forefront Range (Ars Technica)
To "align" its security and protection software, Microsoft has announced that it's discontinuing five of its Forefront-branded products. The company will stop selling Forefront Protection 2010 for Exchange Server (FPE), Forefront Protection 2010 for SharePoint (FPSP), Forefront Security for Office Communications Server (FSOCS), Forefront Threat Management Gateway 2010 (TMG), and Forefront Threat Management Gateway Web Protection Services (TMG WPS) as of December 1st, 2012. FPE, FPSP, FSOCS, and TMG WPS subscriptions will be supported until the earlier of December 31st, 2015, or each customer's current subscription date. TMG will receive mainstream support until April 14th, 2015, and extended support until April 14th, 2020.

SharePoint and Those Little Tick Boxes That do so Much (EndUserSharePoint)
When you are working with SharePoint you soon learn that there are some little changes you can make which will make a big difference to the way you end up working with the application. An example of this is Content types. Content types are not enabled by default within a document library but as soon as you turn them on they open up a world of opportunity, allowing you to store documents that have different metadata requirements alongside each other in a document library. And that’s just the start of things you can do with content types.
Moving the SharePoint QuickLaunch to the Right (NothingButBranding)
To start I will move the quick launch menu to the right, which can be a good when you want to put more emphasis to the content of your site. If the quick launch is on the left of the page, the eyes will look there before looking at the content. The second section is to customize the menu and apply the same kind of branding than my last article. I strongly recommend you to read my last article if you want to know how to add a CSS file in your master page and be able to use the CSS code I will give you in this article.
Rapid Business Development: LightSwitch vs. Dynamics CRM vs. SharePoint vs. ASP.NET MVC (Robert MacLean)
Over a year ago I wrote a post where I compared four technologies that can be used to build business applications rapidly. The original post was inspired by how similar a number of products have become over the last few years and more importantly how Visual Studio LightSwitch, which is a specialized rapid business tool development platform built on top of Visual Studio, is going to affecting the development eco-system. That post was written in the LightSwitch Beta 2 timeframe and the world has changed a lot since then – LightSwitch has shipped, not once but TWICE! So it is about time it got a refresh.

Publish a Database to a SharePoint Site (Microsoft)
When you publish a database to a SharePoint site, you can share the data with other people who use the SharePoint site while you continue to use Access as the front end for the forms, reports, and queries in the database. There are two ways that you can work with a published database. If you are a database designer, you can build queries, forms, and reports that use the data from the SharePoint site. If you are a database user, you can use Access to enter, view, and analyze data from the SharePoint site.
