After upgrading to Win10 I have found a few bumps along the way but most of them have been little and solved. Win10 is actually very likable.
On my road trip, We The People 2013 – www.wethepeople2013.us – I used my Asus ROG laptop as my mobile lab for ingesting still and video files and then editing them. For the video from my Nikon D800 I get MOV files and I would use the MS Movie Maker program to get a quick edit done and posted to YouTube.
After the move to Win10 and keeping the Movie Maker program, part of the Windows Live Essentials package that was not updated for Win10, I find the program will not open MOV files anymore. Sad…
I did find this link, http://www.wikihow.com/Convert-a-MOV-File-to-an-MP4, from wikiHow that explained you could just change the extension of the file from a .MOV to a .MP4! Really… So I did a basic copy/paste in the same folder, got a COPY added to the file name and then changed the extension. Works like a charm and the ‘new’ files open in Movie Maker just fine.
Hope this is helpful to someone else, have a good one…
Brian and I have been working on the back-end of Office 365 – SharePoint – and learning some of the in’s and out’s of how all of this comes together.
Microsoft has decided to drop the public facing website in the Office 365 offering and have you work from a 3rd party.
We will keep working on the Intranet SharePoint side and post as we get comfortable with how it all comes together, but will post a bit more regular on this change over to the 3rd partly hosting of the Internet side.
Here are some links to current information.
Office 365 message center posting from 1/5/15:
In February, we’re removing the SharePoint Online Public Website feature for new Office 365 subscription plans. Office 365 customers who currently use this feature will continue to have access to the feature for a minimum of two years following this change. In addition, Microsoft will offer alternate solutions from industry leaders to enable Office 365 customers to easily integrate their public presence within their Office 365 environment. Additional information
Answer from Office 365 community:
Yes Office 365 will discontinue the SharePoint Online Public Website feature. All Office 365 administrators who have provisioned SharePoint Online will receive a notification of this change in the Office 365 Message center.
The following website hosting companies currently partner with Office 365:
Customers who currently use the SharePoint Online Public Website feature will continue to have access to the feature for a minimum of two years after the changeover date of March 9, 2015. Moving forward, these customers will have the option of subscribing to third-party solutions for public website functionality and should plan to move to one of the third-party solutions within the next two years.
New customers who subscribe to Office 365 after the changeover date won’t have access to this feature. Moving forward, Office 365 customers will have access to industry-leading third-party offerings that will enable them to have a public website that provides a complete online solution and presence.

Here is a link to a Windows 10 list of coming features:
Seems the interface for WP 10 will be different and might not work on older phones given the tech specs.
or Godot.. hopefully the raw update will not take that long. Nokia has done a couple of recent ‘Nokia Camera’ updates in preparation for the new camera app. Apparently the next step is the phone update from Lumia Amber to Lumia Black. The Black update will allow the camera to capture raw images. Additionally the update will bring low energy abilities for Bluetooth 4 and some other goodies. Nokia is working on keeping the Windows Phone owners happy.
In an ongoing effort to get more 1020 images out there.. here is a link to my Instagram postings. A series of images taken with the Nokia Lumina 1020 of veggies and fruit in grocery stores.
Here is another example of an Pro__highres.jpg — 1st image is an uncorrected jpeg – 10 MB, next jpeg has a little sharping, drew down the highlights and bumped the saturation just a little, 12.8 MB and then the crop plus a screen shot to show the crop. Remember all images © Ed Zirkle 2013
