"..Unnatural work produces too much stress.."

Why Security Essential (MSE) released by Microsoft for free?

A free anti-malware solution codenamed Morro by the end of 2009. Morro, of course, became known as Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE), and as promised it is absolutely free and available to all genuine, XP (32-bit only on XP) and 7 users, and will come in both 32-bit and 64-bit variants. MSE is small, fast, light, and effective, and since it’s built on the same security Platform of other security products you know you can trust it. I’ve been using it and believe me its a good start from Microsoft to protect the entire PC world from Spyware, Malware and Virus…a near perfect security solution.

Far too many PCs are unprotected with out-of-date anti-malware products. Microsoft tells that there are a number of reasons for this. First, because many new PCs come with only time-limited security solutions, some users believe they’re protected even though the initial subscription period may have ended. Some don’t activate the free bundled solution, some can’t or won’t pay for security suites, most of which need to be renewed every year. Meanwhile, the security landscape is evolving. The impact and severity of security threats is increasing and is becoming more professional, with many malware outbreaks aimed specifically at financial fraud. Security software vendors are constantly adapting their products to meet these evolving needs, but these products are often complex and increasingly address a number of non-security tasks.

So MSE comes into this world and is designed to address the needs of users who are often not protected, for one reason or another. From a broad perspective, MSE works side-by-side with Microsoft’s other security technologies, including those built into Windows and accessory products like the Malicious Software Removal Tool, but adding the crucial element of real time protection. It is based on the same trusted and well-regarded security engine that is used by Microsoft’s Forefront line of products. It is incredibly easy to install and use. Microsoft Security Essentials is built on the same award-winning anti-malware technology Microsoft uses in its other security products, including the Forefront family of solutions and Hotmail.

MSE supports several levels of updates. The product itself is updated when needed, periodically, and once installed, these updates are delivered through Microsoft Update. The core engine technology is updated monthly, also via Microsoft Update. Microsoft publishes new signature updates three times each day, but of course signatures can also be updated in real time when needed. The best part of all this is that none of it impacts the user at all. You just install it and forget it. MSE will take care of the rest…..i love this product… you should also download it..all you need is your operating system in your PC should be genuine and this product never expire or ask you to upgrade or never make your system slow down…more info read my previous blog of how to download it

New Productivity Defenition from Microsoft

Anywhere access to business data is now more easily available to Microsoft Dynamics ERP customers, enabled by a new technology spanning Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010 called Business Connectivity Services (BCS). By linking commonly used Microsoft Dynamics ERP information, such as customer or supplier contact details, to BCS, companies can access these details offline in Outlook 2010 or SharePoint Workspace 2010…Microsoft Office, Microsoft SharePoint Server and Microsoft Dynamics now share a common user interface — the Fluent user interface (UI) — that makes them more consistent to use and easier to adopt.

Windows Phone 7 – Microsoft’s new smartphone series comming soon

Windows Phone 7 adds new social networking and productivity features all within a clean and touch-friendly interface.  Microsoft hinted that the Zune and Windows Mobile teams were working closely and you can definitely see this relationship in Series 7. The menus and interface have the same fluid animations and clean typeface as the Zune HD’s

Social and Productivity Hubs : … aggregates you friends from all of your social networks in three screens: Recent, All, What’s New. Recent will show you friends who have just updated their profiles or statuses while All will show you all of your friends…What’s new quickly aggregates status updates all into a single feed…The Pictures Hub lets you see all of the pictures on your hub, your most recent pictures and what’s new with all of your friends. The phone will pick the latest pictures you uploaded or have taken with your phone…The Office Hub lets you easily sync your documents between your phone and your PC. Office Hub comes with OneNote, for notetaking, Documents, and Sharepoint for presentation collaboration. Users will also have access to an Outlook Mail application which gives similar features, like flagging important e-mail, that you’d find on the desktop version. The first version of Windows Phone 7 Series will not include Adobe Flash — although Ballmer said he had “no objection” to Flash support…hmmm…Key note presntation of Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft and Joe Belfiore, corporate vice president of Windows Phone Program Management click here

The interface has an on-screen QWERTY keyboard and will support four-point multitouch interfaces in the same way as Windows 7 for PCs. Another feature borrowed from PCs is the Web browser: it’s based on the same code as the desktop version of Internet Explorer, Belfiore said

Microsoft is also taking further control over the hardware side. All Windows Series 7 phones will ship with three hardware buttons: Home, Search, and Back. They’ll also all be capacitive touch-enabled with multitouch…Microsoft’s hardware partners include Dell, HTC, Garmin ASUS, LG, Samsung, SE, Toshiba, HP and Qualcomm. NVIDIA, which provided the Tegra chip in the Zune HD hardware, is noticeably absent. Microsoft had no comment on this matter.

Microsoft plans to have Windows phones in the market by the end of this year for the 2010 holiday season
