View System Information On An iOS Device

Under the hood on iOS is a hard place to get; especially without bricking or jailbreaking a device. There are a few tools that can provide insight into what’s on a device, and about the device, though. One is an app called SysSecInfo, available at https://www.sektioneins.de/en/blog/16-05-09-system-and-security-info.html.
Once installed, you’ll see how much CPU and memory are in use, and not in use, on your device.

Scroll down and tap on Process List to see a list of each process running on the device.

Tap Details towards the bottom of the screen to see more information about the OS build running on the device.

GigJam Preview is now available for everyone

Today’s post was written by Vijay Mital, general manager of the Ambient Computing team.
We’re pleased to announce that the GigJam Preview is now available to everyone on Windows, Mac, iPhone and iPad. Start using GigJam today—you no longer need an invitation. GigJam is a product coming to Office 365 later this year for people with a co-working mindset. It empowers you to spontaneously and ephemerally involve others in your work.
Need to discuss a draft contract with a customer? Just send over the right paragraphs to their phone, no need to send the entire file. Need a vendor’s help to fill in order details? Pull up the Salesforce order and related emails, hide the price and beam over the information to their phone to edit. In a huddle? Show a draft brochure to your designer, but only the text to your copywriter.

Câmara Municipal de Cascais embarks on digital cul...

Today’s post was written by Miguel Pinto Luz, deputy mayor at Câmara Municipal de Cascais.
As deputy mayor at Câmara Municipal de Cascais, I value technology that puts our government ahead of the curve. We have a 650-year history as an alluring retreat for members of European royal families and as a weekend getaway for city dwellers. Our 32 kilometers of beaches and our protected parkland are well known for their natural beauty. Our mission as the municipal government of Cascais is to continue this tradition and to make our town the best place to live not just for today, but for a lifetime. And to accomplish this in the 21st century, we have to transform from a paper-based, compartmentalized organization to a “digital government.” We turned to the cloud services that Microsoft offers within the Azure computing environment and the Office 365 business productivity suite.
Microsoft Azure delivers a trusted cloud computing environment to store our data, but we... | Read more »

Connect Amazon Echo To An iHeartRadio Account

The Amazon Echo can’t control a FireTV. I guess they’re different groups at Amazon. And not all the music you want is available on Amazon Prime. Royalties, contracts, etc being what they are, sometimes Amazon can’t find something you want. But, even if an artist or song isn’t available, you can often hook into a channel that fills the void on iHeartRadio. So, let’s connect the two.
To get started, you’ll want to log into http://alexa.amazon.com. Then, click on Music & Books and then scroll down to the listing for iHeartRadio and click on the logo. If you haven’t linked an account, you’ll only have the option to “Link your account now” so click there.

When prompted either enter your username and password, or, if you initially setup your account with Facebook or Goolge, click on those.... | Read more »

Alexa, Order Me A Pizza

Domino’s is arguably not the best pizza in the world. But it’s pizza. And, if you have an Amazon Echo, you can order it without opening an app, touching a keyboard, or making a phone call. This makes for a great look at using one of the skills options in Alexa to extend the usefulness of an Echo.
To do so, you’ll first setup a Domino’s account (aka Pizza Profile). Do that at Dominos.com (avoiding any conflicts with the Noid along the way).

Also setup an Easy Order, which is the kind of pizza that Alexa will order each time you tell her to do so. Once done, you’ll need to enable the Domino’s skill. To enable the Domino’s skill. A skill is an extension of an Echo. Think of it like an App Store on an iPhone. In this example, I’ll use my desktop to enable the skill, but the process is the same when run using the Alexa app. First, open... | Read more »

OneNote—the instructional springboard for your cla...

Today’s post was written by Lara Dabbagh, assistant principal at the Coláiste Bhaile Chláir school in Ireland, and Daragh Jordon, Niamh McCullagh, Sarah McHale and Vitska Mulroy, Microsoft student ambassadors.
The Coláiste Bhaile Chláir school is a Microsoft Showcase School. They replaced all traditional textbooks with a digital teaching and learning resource, using Microsoft OneNote and Office 365 as a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE).
Perspective of the assistant principal
When we were tasked with developing a replacement for all textbooks in our school (a significantly radical move in Ireland), we had no idea the world of opportunities it would open up.
Each subject department set about developing their resource using OneNote. Using Office 365 as our VLE, we enjoyed seamless sharing within our school community. This removed all the barriers of the multi-email/username time trap that teachers... | Read more »
