Microsoft Band and Windows Phone 8 Support

Will Microsoft Band be supported on Windows Phone 8? Without the 8.1 update?
I have been searching for answers since the Band was announced, but so far can't find any notes regarding my old phone.
I even have Windows Phone 7 but it seems that will be a no no from Microsoft.
If you have something to share please post it below.

Series: Part 1 - Put your domains to work for you

Have you registered domains and don’t know what to do with them? Or did you registered the domains with hyphens or numbers rather than word so that others may not steal your brand? Well now you have a solution to use those domains and put your domains to work for you.

In this series I will be posting many solutions for you so that you can pick and choose the solution that works for you.

The first and simplest solution is to have a landing page with basic text. Second, to put the landing page to work for you, you need to add a some links, and these could be called referral links or affiliates text links or banner links.

As for as the rules and best practices of posting referral links or affiliates links, I will have to post an entire blog on the topic. For now, set up your domain to have a landing page, a page which is not the default from your domain registrar. Yes this may involve you to setup a webhosting account, but don’t worry now a days, companies like GoDaddy and other registrar’s, provide you with free landing page with a hosting account, and some like GoDaddy will provide a web hosting account free with a new domain registration. So make use of your free accounts if you get any. Don’t let them go to waste.

Google Mail Hangout Message Upon Delete Action

Don't know if I get annoyed this much as the Google's Mail Hangout Message, when I select to delete number or messages.

"Because some are part of a Hangout, they have been removed from your Mail mailbox, but will still show up in other Hangouts apps and chat windows."

The message takes over the entire tool bar, and does not allow me to repeat the actions, it does not goes away until way late and would have appreciated but not allowed is a option to close. If I want to delete more items on the same page than i have to refresh the window to repeat the task.

Wish the future update can allow me to close this message.

Seriously? Internet Explorer Low-Mic Utility Tool

Talk about not so bright people being responsible for naming conventions and acronyms.

The IE team allegedly says that “Mic” stands for “Medium Integrity Cookie”… hmmm I might give some hoot to a MSDN blog but is it really??? The process runs non stop, and if I try stopping it, the process makes Windows 8 non stable.

hmmm What Gives?

Windows Phone 7 issue with Zune

I followed these steps to resolve my Windows Phone 7 sync issue with Zune software on my Windows 8 Laptop.

Most of the steps are same from this page: but my issue wasn’t resolved following all rules and restarting phone with battery removal as well as restart of computer.

Please note: Deleting a certificate can create issues with owner ship of files or data, and just because this solution has worked for me, it may not work for you. Use at your own risk.

  1. Close the Zune software and disconnect your phone from your computer.
  2. Open Certificate Manager. To do this, click Start, type certmgr.msc in the Start search bar, and then press your Enter key.
    Windows 8 users:
    On the Start screen, type Certificate, tap or click Settings in the right column, and then tap or click Manage computer certificates.
  3. In the pop-up window, tap or click the Personal folder in the left column, and then double tap or double click the Certificates folder in the right column.
  4. Click the heading that says Issued By to sort the column, and then look for one or more certificates that read "zune-tuner://windowsphone/...".
  5. Right-click the certificate file and click Delete.
  6. Make sure phone is not connected to the computer, if it is then disconnect it.
  7. Connect the phone to computer and after the Zune software opens, all items will start syncing.

Following these steps resolved my sync issue with Windows 8 laptop.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all, may this year bring peace, safety and joy for you all. Knowing the good and bad that the 2012 has given us, I hope that the 2013 will be different.

It is not easy to understand or live the pain and suffering that some has experienced in 2012 but I can hope and pray that things will be better for those you are alive and pray that those who have departed to gain Heaven with almighty's wishes.

I feel troubled and saddened by what has happened to the girl in India and how, entire India is shoulder to shoulder as one voice for change; change for the betterment of India and safety for women in India.

There is no joy in letting go this past year but I hope that the new year will bring in more joy and happiness to everyone.

Happy New Year 2013.
