    Get in SYNC with Microsoft for Ford's Random Acts of Fusion Campaign

    Posted By Chris Elliott
    Senior Marketing Communications Manager

    Believe it or not, Joel McHale, Ryan Seacrest and I have more in common than just our dashing good looks. We’re all part of Ford’s Random Acts of Fusion campaign promoting the all-new 2013 Ford Fusion.

    Ford recently held a contest to bring one lucky person to Joel’s hometown of Seattle to see all the sites. The winner, Kristina from Stillman Valley, Illinois, cruised around the Emerald City in a new Fusion and even got a behind the scenes tour of Microsoft—Ford’s technology partner in developing Ford SYNC. I was on-hand to welcome Kristina and her friend to our campus, show off our fabled Garage and show them the some of the main benefits of Ford SYNC, on a bright and sunny day—clearly it doesn’t rain here all the time.

    A Close-up Look at Windows Server 2012 for Embedded Systems

    Posted By Jeff Wettlaufer
    Technical Program Manager

    Hey everyone, if you have been following industry platform news over the past few weeks, you might have seen the news about Windows Server 2012 being released. This is a significant release for us here at Microsoft, and as many of you who read this blog know, there is also a version of Windows Server 2012 for embedded systems. My name is Jeff Wettlaufer, and I am excited to bring my blogging efforts over from the System Center group, joining the Windows Embedded Marketing team. I have recently returned to Microsoft from a year at RES Software, and in my new role with WEM as a Technical Program Manager I am primarily responsible for the technical product management of Windows Embedded Compact, but also Windows Server for Embedded Systems, SQL embedded, Windows Embedded Device Management and of course Windows Embedded demonstrations. You can expect to hear from me on these areas and more in the coming months as I get unpacked and settled into this amazing team.

    We thought it might be worth a post to let you know a little more about what the server platform means to the Windows Embedded business, and provide you some highlights of the (huge) list of new capabilities. So, here goes……..

    Many of us think of servers locked up in datacenters in the corporate world, or more recently in large deployments - servicing cloud offerings like Outlook.com, XBOX Live, Office 365, Dynamics and even Windows Azure. While all of these are true, and great examples of Windows Server 2012 deployments, from an embedded perspective, we have other applications. I want to provide you an overview of Windows Server 2012 for embedded systems using 3 simple buckets:

    • One Trusted Platform
    • Fits with your needs
    • Extends intelligence for increased business opportunity

    Take me out to the ballgame……

    Posted By Jeff Wettlaufer

    When we talk about Intelligent Systems, we speak about connecting sensors and smart devices through intuitive applications to cloud services. Whether this fabric is lowering the cost of manufacturing for your next car, helping your family doctor prescribe you the right medicine, or making your next shopping experience better, Microsoft technology is in the DNA of the effort. Sometimes, it even effects your day out at the ballpark.

    Most of us think of pro sports stadium experiences from our childhood. Mine was in Edmonton watching the Oilers of the 80’s in mullets and tube skates. The arena was loud. We kept up with the game using a hard copy program in our laps and the few light bulb boards around the rink that showed the score, some out of town info every now and then but not much more. Not much technology in place. Anywhere.

    Today’s kids have it a little different. With the kids back in school, those warm summer nights slowly disappearing into cooler evenings and the trees changing color, our thoughts turn to the autumn. Football coverage takes over the TV networks, and the baseball season heads for the playoffs.
