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

Nokia Lumia 920 – The Phone that sets the standard

  • 8.7 megapixels Camera sensor (main camera resolution)
  • Nokia PureView Camera
  • 4.5 ” Display size
  • Snapdragon™ S4 Processor name
  • 10 h Talk time (3G)
  • 400 h Standby time (3G)
  • 67 h Maximum music playback time

Operating system and software

The Nokia Lumia 920 runs the Windows Phone 8 operating system. As with other Lumia devices, the 920 includes Nokia-exclusive apps, like Nokia City Lens, an augmented reality software that gives dynamic information about users’ surroundings. Click here for Specifications.

Inductive charging

The phone can be recharged either physically or inductively using the Qi technology. Rather than requiring the use of a physical connection to the phone, this requires the phone to be placed upon a charging pad which, unlike a physical connector, hinders use of the phone while charging. The charging pad requires a separate power supply.

Processors, memory, and storage

The Lumia 920 has a 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Krait, and a Qualcomm Adreno 225 GPU, and has 1 GB of system RAM

Nokia Lumia 920 comes with an internal storage capacity of 32 GB. Although Windows Phone 8 supports storage expansion using microSD cards, Lumia 920 does not support them.

Screen

The Lumia 920 has a 4.5-inch curved glass display running at WXGA (1280 × 768) resolution with an aspect ratio of 15:9 using enhanced IPS screen technology which Nokia calls “PureMotion HD+”. It has less than 9 ms average transition times, where conventional IPS LCDs have an average of 23 ms, which reduces motion blur.

Camera

The Lumia 920 has Nokia’s PureView technology on the rear camera, which Nokia claims to be the best currently available on any smartphone, capturing “five to 10 times more light than competitor devices” via a “floating lens technology that surpasses the optical image stabilization system of most digital SLRs.

Elcome International – Productivity goes up using latest Microsoft Technology

As a system integrator, My company, Elcome is well aware of the technologies available to make our clients lives easier…The deployment of Microsoft Dynamics has also had a major impact on the company’s ability to operate. “One big area that we’ve been able to focus on is reporting, in terms of KPIs and business intelligence. There have been a lot of advances in Dynamics and the supporting tools to make it easier to produce different types of reports, and the ability to allow end users to customise, specifically things like SQL reporting services that are part of SQL 2008. We were using an old version of Microsoft Dynamics GP. Two versions old in fact,” we realises. “When we upgraded to the latest version – and I think we were one of their first customers to go live with the latest version which is Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 – we also moved to the latest versions of all the underlying technology. That includes the latest version of Microsoft SQL Server 2010. We’ve also moved from 32-bit to 64-bit servers. Everything is now running on 64bit hardware and software.” – explains executive director at Elcome International, Jimmy Grewal…more information read the following article published by ITP publishers on ACN Magazine By Ben Furfie Published May 10, 2011, May 2011 issue..click here to read more

Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 SP1… comming soon

Next week (Week 15), Microsoft will release Office for Mac 2011 Service Pack 1 (SP1) which will provide increased stability, security, and some new features to the suite – including improved Outlook syncing support – as well as some performance enhancements. This update will enable calendar syncing between Outlook for Mac and Apple’s Sync Services. This will let you sync your Outlook calendar as well as contacts, notes and tasks with any service or device that supports Sync Services, including your iPhone and iPad.  Apple is introducing with their new version of MobileMe. MobileMe will no longer sync with MacOS Sync Services as of May 5th (or now if you have already moved your account to the new version of MobileMe calendar). As a result, Outlook 2011 SP1 calendars that sync with Sync Services on the Mac, will NOT be synced with MobileMe calendars.

The new Apple MobileMe Calendar service is an updated calendar service for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, and PC. It includes:

  • The best calendar service for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
  • Calendar sharing with family and friends
  • Calendar publishing for a group or team
  • Event invitations with RSVPs
  • A new web application

The new MobileMe Calendar uses the CalDAV standard so users can view and edit their calendars using the built-in calendar applications on their iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Mac. Windows users can also view and edit their calendars with Microsoft Outlook using the MobileMe Control Panel for Windows.

Exchange server 2010 CAS array to MAPI load balance – Detailed

Most of you guys must have experience the scenario when “Outlook connection lost….” even if you have Exchange server 2010 (with Edge, 2 clustered H&C and 2 DAG configured MB) and Outlook 2010 in place. The reason is that, when you are doing a maintenance on one of the H&C, and if the client is connected to that H&C, communication to the MB is lost. The reason for this is that the cluster load balancing on the H&C cluster handler is not in place, even if the cluster name is published in the DNS server.

In Exchange 2007, 5 server roles that performed distinct functions within the Exchange organization. One role in particular – the Client Access server role – introduced a variety of new Web services, including the Availability service, the Auto discover service and Calendar Concierge services.

In Exchange 2010, same 5 server roles exists. However, there are some significant architectural changes and some shift in responsibilities. The most significant change in Exchange 2010, two new services on CAS called the RPC Client Access and Address Book services establish the RPC (Repote Procedure Call) endpoint for MAPI(Messaging Application Programming Interface), NSPI(Name Service Provider Interface) and RFR (Request for Response) client access. This new functionality replaces the RPC endpoints in the Information Store. The RPC endpoint in the Information Store has not been removed in Exchange 2010, but it has been modified to only accept requests from CAS servers. The RPC endpoint for public folder database access remains on the Mailbox server, however, Outlook clients now communicate directly with the RPC Client Access service on the Mailbox Server for public folder database access, and not with the Information Store.

When CAS starts communicating with the Mailbox server, it makes sense to view it as the Client Access server communicating with the Mailbox database via the Mailbox server that hosts the database. This is especially evident in a load-balanced array of Client Access servers and/or where your environment is configured to use Database Availability Groups that are associated with a Client Access server or Client Access server array.

  • In a non-load balanced environment, the mailbox database is associated with only a single Client Access server.
  • In a load-balanced environment, the Mailbox database is associated with the load balanced array of multiple Client Access servers.

By default, before a Client Access array is configured,

  • all databases are associated with a Client Access server in the environment
  • the Outlook clients communicate directly with the Client Access server until the association with the database is updated to be the Client Access array.

In order for the clients to utilize a CAS array

  1. Create a Client Access array with an FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name).
  2. Load balance your CAS servers in a CAS array by whatever method you choose – Both Hardware LB or Windows Network LB are supported load balancers
  3. Add the Client Access servers within the AD site to a load balanced array and in DNS associate the unique FQDN to the Virtual IP of the load-balanced array.
  4. Configure your load balancing array to load balance the MAPI RPC ports – TCP 135, UDP/TCP 6005-65535; or set static ports
  5. Configure the databases to utilize the CAS array… Use the new-clientaccessarray cmdlet to create the CAS array object. Eg: New-ClientAccessArray –Name “Tromso CAS Array” –Fqdn tromso.site.com” –Site “SITEA”

How to Setup!!!..

Goto one of the CAS server where the NLB is ( to read more about New-ClientAccessArray cmdlet, click here )

[1] Check is there are any pre-created CAS Arrays. PS Command : Get-ClientAccessArray

[2] Create new Client Access Array. Run the Cmdlet in EMS New-ClientAccessArray -Fqdn server.contoso.com -Site “Redmond” -Name “server.contoso.com”

[3] Associate databases with this CAS Array -

Use this CMDLet to add mailbox database to CAS array. Add all mailbox databases at once – Get-MailboxDatabase | Set-MailboxDatabase -RPCClientAccessServer “CASNLB.contoso.com”

Now the best part -

Configuring Outlook 2010 using Auto Discover

If you already configured Outlook client, Close the outlook, then goto Control Panel->Mail and change the Server name to the new CAS NLB name

If you are going to use a new outlook configuration, Auto discover will return the new CAS NLB name.

Thats all folks!!! Enjoy!!!

Restricting email to the Internet on a per user AND per domain basis

This blog post is meant to show how easy it now is to accomplish this oft heard request in Exchange 2010. Transport rules, introduced with Exchange 2007, provided a lot of new options for administration of mail resulting in even more requests for additional functionality. The rules now have new predicates and actions extending the possibilities of what can be done. For our example, the rule will restrictActive Directory Mail enabled users” who have their ‘Department‘ defined as ‘Temp Employees‘ from sending mail to the internet, except they must be allowed to send to 2 external domains called: ‘partnerdomain.com‘ and ‘fourthcoffee.com‘. Additionally, to reduce Helpdesk calls, you want to send an NDR when they violate the rule. For demonstration purposes I will use 2 Conditions, one Action and one Exception.

Microsoft Exchange Team Blog will explain you how to do it in Exchange 2010…beautiful blog post..click here
