Remember if you were using the RTM Version of Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 which was released some weeks ago, you have to deploy some Update Rollups to get the latest version. The Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 GA build already includes those updates.

iPad arrived

My iPad arrived last Friday. After playing and testing the iPad the last days, I don’t know how I could live without this device. It makes life so much easier. I really love Apps like iTap (Remote Desktop), Things, Evernote, Safari, the standard calender app and and and…
