Online meetings get better with Lync and new Polycom Unified Conference Stations, CX5100 and CX5500

Sometimes when you’ve been around great technology for a long time, you take for granted that others also know about it and use it.

At Microsoft, we use these devices every day as we collaborate in teams that span multiple locations around the world.

OneNote to rule them all

As a passionate, tech-savvy and always-looking-for-best-solution math teacher, I am always searching the Internet for programs and apps to help me get the most out of my teaching profession.

More than 13,000 of these wish lists find their way to Santa Claus, Indiana every year where a group of Santa’s Elves—local volunteers who don elfin hats and jolly knitwear—diligently open read, and reply to each one. But this year, the Elves did things a bit differently…
