What is in my bag for Microsoft Ignite

What’s in my bag for Microsoft Ignite 2015

In a couple of hours, I will catch my flight to Chicago with the rest of the itnetx team to join Microsoft Ignite 2015. I am looking forward to it and meet other enthusiasts around Microsoft Cloud solutions and of course, meeting with members of the Microsoft Product Group.

What is in my bag for Microsoft Ignite

  • My primary device is, of course, the Microsoft Surface Pro 3, which I use as my 3-in-1 device, replacing my notebook, tablet, and desktop using the Surface Pro 3 Docking Station. Of course, it is running the latest Microsoft Windows 10 Insider Preview. Battery life I get is around 8 hours depending on what I am doing I get even some more.
  • As my day to day phone, I use the Nokia Lumia 930, which is just a perfect device with a great camera to take a picture from the place I travel to and listen to music.
  • Even I like the trackpad of the new Surface Pro 3 Type Cover, and I think I am more productive using a mouse. For that, I got the Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse Surface Edition.
  • I also got some Bose Quiet Comfort 25 Audio Headphones to listen to music. I like them because the audio is excellent and they are light and comfortable to wear and the active noise canceling works just great, especially on long flights. The integrated microphone is also pretty important to Lync or Skype for Business calls.
  • When I am at a hotel, and I am working or writing some blog posts, I love to listen to music. For that, I use the Nokia MD-12 wireless Bluetooth speaker.
  • To get some extra power, if I need it, I use the Nokia DC-18 portable Micro USB Charger and a Microsoft Portable Power DC-21.
  • Of course, I am also carrying the Microsoft Band, which helps me tracks the steps I walk during Microsoft Ignite and the limited sleep I get during this event.
  • For presentations, I got a Microsoft Mini-DisplayPort to HDMI and VGA adapter as well as the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter, which acts as a Miracast Receiver and is great for presentations.
  • I also carry a USB 3.0, but I don’t use a portable hard drive anymore since I got unlimited storage space on my OneDrive using Office 365.
  • You might think to charge all these devices I need a lot of different power adapters, well that’s not true. I use the power adapter of the Microsoft Surface Pro 3, which also has a USB port for charging the phone, speaker, and other stuff.

I am looking forward to Ignite and meet some of you in Chicago.



Windows Phone Nokia Lumia 930

My new Nokia Lumia 930 arrived

Okay it is a couple of months ago since I got a new phone or gadget. This time I got a Nokia Lumia 930 and I loved it from the first second. I the past months I was using my Lumia 1020 a because of the awesome camera which allowed me to take some great pictures. I was pretty happy with it, but until I got Windows Phone 8.1 I add some performance problems,maybe resetting it could fix could fix the issues, but I will try that later. Now I know I only got the Lumia 930 for a day and of course it is too early for a review but I want to write a little about my first impression. There are already a lot of good review out there in the web so I try to focus on the things I really liked about the device.

The first thing I have to say is that I love the colors you can get that thing. I got a green one but if I would have to go back I would probably go for orange. However both colors look great and it is a hard decision. The first thing I noticed when I unboxed the Lumia 930 was the amazing build quality, Nokia phones always had a great build quality but this one makes other phones look cheap. It feels really good in your hands and feels like a real premium device. The second thing is  the amazing screen, since not a lot of review talk a lot about the screen, I didn’t expect a lot of difference to the Lumia 1020 or 1520, but the Lumia 930 screen makes me not want to use other phones anymore. It is a bright screen with great colors and a true black. The performance looks great again, similar to the Lumia 1520 and Windows Phone 8.1 on that device also got some new features which are not available on the Lumia 1020. Such as a setting which allows you to use the cellular data if the wireless connection has a limited connection, and much more.
