Differences between Windows 7 and Windows 10 for Enterprise Support Users

The Information Week article called, “Windows 10: Microsoft Attempts A SaaS Model” by Larry Loeb explains that a key change in Windows 10 Enterprise is that Microsoft will no longer be charge per license. Instead Microsoft will charge per device to accommodate growth, the cloud and mobility sectors. In addition, an Information Week article called “Windows 10 Vs. Windows 7: What Enterprise IT Needs To Know” by Curtis Franklin explains how Windows 10 Enterprise differs in comparison to Windows 7 Enterprise and other versions. Windows 10 as a Service is a feature that is included in Windows 10 Enterprise. The purpose of WAaS is to simplify the process of upgrading and updating. I think that there has to be some accommodations made, especially because security threats constantly evolve. Microsoft has to develop solutions which may involve totally new builds and operating systems. Those upgrades have to be pushed to servers and individual users. So economically I understand how a per-user charge would be more suitable, compared to collective usage charges. An article called “Battery Saver” on Microsoft’s Hardware Dev Center website explains that the Battery Saver feature will automatically activate when the device percentage falls below 20%. Battery Saver also prevents applications from running in the background and it limits other application activity, to limit consumption of battery usage while the battery level is below 20%. An article listed on Microsoft’s Windows IT Center called, “Power Management for Network Devices in Windows 7” explains that there are features that can be configured to manage power on a network. For example the Low Power on Media Disconnect feature places the...

Planning a Business Trip to Madrid, Spain

So, I understand that you want to plan a business trip to Madrid, Spain, but do not have a single thought of how to prepare for it.  Now we are on the same boat.  I hope to travel internationally one day and try to prepare myself for when that day comes.  I have recently just came back from Wisconsin Dells and paid $250 which covered the cabin, food, and gas, and anything else.  Since we went as a group, the money was split evenly per couple.  Now I did not plan much because the trip was just a little get away with some friends and family.  On the day of departing, I decided to bring $300 in cash just in case there were places to explore.  After the week, I came back with a little over $100 because of the store and outlet mall.  Now I have a little knowledge of how to prepare myself for next time.  As we go through this guide, these are my opinions on how to get yourself started.  Here are a few tips and some pointers to help you start planning your trip without the headache. Scheduling flight/hotel – For this I have booked a 5 day (Mon-Fri) trip Use trip advisor to look up flights Trip advisor is a great search engine to look for the cheapest deals. You can choose what airline to fly on, how many stops, and many more. A round trip costs as low as $1310, but may take up to a day to arrive Booking a flight and hotel will save you half the trouble of looking...
