When I joined Microsoft nearly five years ago (wow, that’s gone quick) I was presented with a technology survival kit on my first day. A Lenovo laptop, a Windows Phone, and a set of Jabra wired headphones. The headphones were necessary (they still are) because there’s almost no desk phones in Microsoft – your PC is your phone, courtesy of Lync… sorry, Skype for Business. The laptop has been replaced (Dell XPS 12, and a Surface Pro 3), and the original HTC phone has long

Outlook 2016 modern attachments

Following on from the general blog post about Office 2016, this is the first of a few* which will focus on some specific features. * Actual number to be decided. We’re going to peak early, because the first of these is the best… Outlook 2016 modern attachments. This topic gets me thinking about presentations I have provided in the past, and my mantra was something along the lines of “don’t e-mail file attachments to me”. It may also have included threats of violent behaviour. In a form

Microsoft Office 2016
Tue, Sep 29th 2015 11:58a   Darren Adams
I’m sure most IT people were aware that Office 2016 shipped last week, but publically it didn’t arrive in much of a blaze of publicity. Certainly there was enough coverage in the computer press and online (well, most online I guess) but it didn’t garner the amount of attention seen with Windows 10 or anything that Apple release. Updates to Office are an interesting beast. When I started at Microsoft (June 2011) Office 2010 was the current version. It looked very different to 2007, and ther

If you’re fortunate (or unfortunate) enough to be one of my Facebook friends, you’ll probably be aware that a few times a week I post a map with a route marked out on it. And even the least technical of people will know that this indicates that someone has either run along that route, or cheated by traversing it sitting down on a bicycle (only joking cyclists). You may also be aware that I’ve shrunk over the past two years – not in height (still 5 foot 11 inches, or 1.8 m

Ten great Windows 10 features
Wed, Jul 15th 2015 7:37a   Darren Adams
A few weeks ago, us Microsoft employees in the UK were invited to submit ‘ten great Windows 10 features’ in order to be in with a chance to win a Windows 10 goody bag. I was a lucky winner. I’ve updated my main work laptop (Dell XPS 12) to Windows 10, and also my Dell 8-inch tablet. I’m doing the Surface Pro 3 this weekend, but I’ll probably leave my home PC (Dell XPS 27) until the actual release date of Windows 10 on 29th July – I’ll take the free upgra

Fitbit Charge
Thu, Apr 30th 2015 5:59p   Darren Adams
Last September I wrote about the Fitbit Flex and how it had worked for me in terms of losing weight and becoming more fit. Since I bought the Flex the Charge and the Surge models were released, but I considered that the Flex was more than good enough for my needs. However, a couple of weeks ago I traveled to New York, and said to myself that if the Fitbit Charge was available at a good price tax-free at the airport, I may possibly consider buying one. That ‘good price’ was £80 as th

Those of you who are my Facebook friends will know that I’ve lost a lot of weight over the past year, and converted myself from a couch potato to someone who runs 10 km a few times a week. I recently entered my first 10 km race and was placed 37th out of 76. I say “race” but I had no expectation of winning. And only 73 finished (according to the competitor tracking web site, two of the runners are still out there somewhere). I finished the run around Dorney Lake (two laps) in 5

Why Katie Hopkins should shut her mouth
Fri, Apr 24th 2015 8:15p   Darren Adams
During the many years of dadams.co.uk I don’t think I have never used this site to launch an attack on someone… but now I’m suitably annoyed enough. I should also mention that I wrote most of this two months ago and have only just got around to finishing it, so the furor over the issue has now somewhat dwindled. First of all, you need to be aware of who Katie Hopkins is. Her Wikipedia page should do it, but it doesn’t really capture her attention-seeking nature or her req
