In Standard 8, if you use Create Media from Image Configuration Editor (ICE), then create an .ISO from that media, you will not be able to use that .ISO to install Standard 8 on a device. Instead, you will get an error stating "Windows Setup failed to open catalog". This is because the media created by ICE is not designed to create an .ISO and thus does not include the .LOCK file that is required to created "locked" copies of the catalog database files.As a workaround, before creating the .ISO from the media file created by ICE, copy the .LOCK file located in C:\Windows Embedded Catalog\.lock, then proceed to create or burn the .ISO. This .LOCK file can also be located on the Windows Embedded 8 Standard DVD in the *\Catalog\.lock directory.

If you are running Windows Embedded Standard 7 (Standard 7) on some devices, you may need to manually set the processor state to 100% to avoid slow performance problems if your processor is not correctly responding to an increase in processor state. This is a known issue on Intel Haswell boards but can happen on other boards as well.
A work-around for this issue is to manually set both the minimum and maximum CPU values for processor state to 100%.
To manually set the CPU values:

It’s a rare and wonderful thing when your work intersects with your play. Here at Windows Embedded, our love of cool technology just collided with our love of soccer in this story on PSFK. Seems the Internet of Things (IoT) can be found on the soccer pitch, in the form of Brazil’s team’s special Gatorade bottles—equipped with sensors that track how much each player drinks.

A recent post on the New York Times’ Bits Blog shines a national light on something we’ve known around here for years: Seattle is a cloud-first city — and Microsoft is a cloud-first company. In fact, cloud computing was born right here, 20 years ago, in the Seattle area. As the post’s author, Quentin Hardy, puts it:
“The roots of Seattle’s strength in cloud computing, longtime observers say, goes back to the mid-1990s, when Microsoft, long the sole big power in Seattle tech, began doing extensive work in distributed computing, or making computers work together in problem solving. That concept is the root of what cloud computing is today: lots of computer servers working together for various tasks.”
