The Redmond based software giant, in its latest Global Startup Day convention setup in San Francisco, announced that it will collaborating with one of the biggest private mutual company American Family Insurance (AFI). The main domains of American Family Insurance are related to property, casualty and auto insurance. The company is a strong player in these fields in America. Both these giants have come together to create a startup accelerator program for startup companies focusing on home automation. With this, both the companies are planning to help startups in creating advancements in the home automation sector so that homes could be made safer and smarter.

Sometimes, Outlook has the image-viewing disabled for email messages by default. This means that you will not see any images that are part of an incoming message, unless you alter the settings to allow that. The whole point of this image blocking is that you stay safe from intrusion via the message, but may often damage the appearance of an email in Outlook.
A message might be harder to read through without the accompanying images. There is a way to make Outlook download all images that come with an email message, after you have made sure that it is from a trusted source. Here is how to get remote images in.
Steps to follow
For downloading remotely stored images, which are not as attached images, go to the gray bar at the top of the email in Outlook, which has a Click here to download pictures button. This feature is in place to make your privacy more secure, and that is why the pictures are not shown right on opening the mail.
Click on the icon, and select Download Pictures from the context menu. After this, you can see all the images in the email message. This is cached so you do not have to repeat the process for any particular message. However, a new message from the same sender would require it.
If you have configured Outlook Express not to download remote content, you can get around that too. It is easy to download images from a source that you trust. You will see an External Message Information Bar to the top of the original message, which says Some pictures have been blocked to help prevent the sender from identifying your computer. Click on the link so that Outlook Express downloads the images you want to view.
Repeat the same steps for other messages, but this particular one will always have the images visible. When an email in Outlook Express has embedded images which you want to download, right-click on the image, and choose Save image as from the menu you get. Select a destination folder to save the file, and click on Save.
That was how to manage the images appearing in your Outlook and Outlook Express emails. To know more about similar Outlook settings, call our tech support and they will assist you in the matter.Read more »
According to some rumors on various Microsoft help & support forums, it looks like the Redmond based tech giant is all set to announce yet another series of Surface tablets. Microsoft launched the Surface tablet series back in October 2012, along with the release of a new Windows operating system, Windows 8. However, since then both the Windows 8 OS and the Microsoft Surface tablets have failed to make much of an impact in the market.
Microsoft keeps releasing more Surface tablet versions
From what one can gather from the online reports, the Surface tablet division has been a failure for Microsoft in the past couple of years, resulting in millions of dollars in losses. The tech giant simply failed to sell enough Surface tablets, as expected. All these unsold tablets forced many of its retail partners to abandon the Surface tablets altogether, and switch to trending Android and iOS tablet devices.
As it is with Windows 8 OS, Microsoft has been struggling continually to get things right in their Surface tablet series as well. With Windows 8, Microsoft has so far followed the policy making more and more changes through Windows 8.1, Windows 8.1 Update 1, and the soon-to-be released Windows 8.1 Update 2. They are following this same strategy with the Surface tablets as well.
The Microsoft Surface series is now in its third generation with Surface Pro 3 released in June 20, 2014. The 12-inch screen in Surface Pro 3 was an attempt to attract the laptop and hybrid devices users. However, this effort did not bear fruit either. According to rumours, Microsoft is working on a new series of 10.6-inch laptops now, which will be bundled with many new features and functions too.
One of the features users can expect is the new pen support Microsoft has been working on for a while. According to the Microsoft help & support team, this innovative pen feature will improve the functioning of the Surface stylus, which will come as a standard accessory in the new model.
Apart from the new stylus and pen support, the device will be heavily equipped with many cool apps and programs that will work well with the pen input. In fact, according to some reports, Microsoft will introduce a new note-taking app to full advantage of this pen support feature. In addition, this new Surface tablet will also have all the other accessories like the detachable keyboard, docking station, etc.Read more »
The Redmond based software giant posted on its Microsoft help forum that they need some help from users who are willing to test the latest version of their OneNote application. Microsoft OneNote, earlier known as Microsoft Office OneNote, is an application that helps people in information gathering and multi user collaboration. The company is all set to launch the latest version of their operating system now, however they require some beta testers to test the application real time before the application is released to the market.
By requesting beta testers to take part in the testing, the company plans to improve their program by finding the issues with the program and fixing them. They are also looking for new ideas for improving the software. The company also plans to get new features added to the software from taking suggestions from their wide user base and developers.
According to the news we get from the Microsoft help forum, the company has setup two forums that are completely centered on OneNote to point out issues with the software. Apart from that, the company is also looking for beta testers for the Android version of the application.
It is a good move from Microsoft to release an Android version of the program. Since Android has the majority in the smartphones industry, by releasing an Android compliant version of the program, the company is targeting a lot of new users for their OneNote application.
If you consider the history of Microsoft, this is not the first time the company has decided to ask for user reviews. The company has earlier done the same for their Xbox 360 and Xbox One gaming consoles. For both products, gamers were given an option to suggest changes for the consoles and the features they felt were necessary in it.
If you have volunteered as a beta tester, then you can offer suggestions and issues you have found in the program in any one of the forums. The forum also provides the users an ability to give a positive nod for the suggestions they like. Microsoft posted about the forum usage policies in their site, “If your suggestion matches an existing one, you can vote for it–you get 10 votes to distribute as you please, and if we fulfill a suggestion you voted for, you’ll get those votes back. Otherwise, you can submit a new suggestion along with a detailed description.”
The best thing about volunteering in beta testing is that you get to enjoy the software before everyone else.Read more »
