Follow the Summer Games in Rio with the new Outlook Interesting calendar feature

Outlook wants to make it easy to focus on what matters most to you. Toward this goal, we’ve recently made big improvements to help you stay on top of your travel reservations and package deliveries by showing summary cards in your inbox and automatically adding events to your calendar.
Today, we are introducing Outlook Interesting calendar—special calendar additions that help you track your favorite events. You will be able to add the 2016 Summer Games in Rio—as well as other popular sports—to your calendar. From the gold medal round of boxing to swimming relays to the gymnastic routines—we have you covered. Powered by Bing, Outlook Interesting calendar lets you browse a curated list of Summer Games, sports leagues and teams and add them to your calendar. Once added, your events will show up on your Outlook calendar across all your devices. It’s simple, intuitive and ensures you don’t miss a thing.
The Interesting calendar feature is rolling out to Outlook.com and Outlook on the web, as well as Outlook for iOS and Android. To start using Interesting calendar follow these easy steps:
1.From your Outlook calendar, click Add calendar in the command bar.
2.Select Interesting calendar.
3.Select one of the available calendars and the events are added to your calendar.


Interesting calendar feature is currently available to users in North America on the new Outlook.com platform as well as for commercial users on Outlook on the web. In the coming weeks, Interesting calendar will be available to set up from Outlook for iOS and Android for users who have an Office 365 account. Once you add a calendar, the events will show up on all your Outlook calendars across your devices.
The Summer Games and Sports calendars are just the beginning. We will be increasing the scope of events we cover in the coming months.

The Power BI Desktop September updates were recently announced. As you can see on the title of the blog post, this is a massive update to the product, with 44 (yes, forty-four!) new features spread across Report Authoring, Data Modeling, Data Sources and Data Transformation capabilities. In average, this represents almost two new features per working day since the previous update.

Microsoft OneDrive on Windows 10 quietly picked up a new feature. The new feature is pretty handy – it lets you automatically save photos, videos and screenshots to OneDrive. The option seems to be disabled by default, and to enable it, but here’s how to enable it:
◾Right click on OneDrive Icon in the taskbar (by the clock) and click settings
◾Open the Auto-Save tab
◾Enable the checkboxes that are available
Enabling the feature will allow you to automatically upload any screenshot, photos and videos to OneDrive, and you’ll be able to access these files from other devices as well. It’s worth noting that Microsoft could be allowing users to automatically upload other files sometime soon, but this is just a speculation.

So how to get this feature? It seems like Microsoft delivered the feature with the KB3081436 update, which was released yesterday. To get the latest update, just check Windows Update to download and install the latest updates.

Windows 10: Upgrade now to take advantage of Microsoft Jump Start Incentives

Windows 10 is officially out. It’s the biggest update to Windows in years and represents a number of new directions for Microsoft’s premier software product. Windows 10 replaces Windows 8 and 8.1, and serves to attract those Windows 7 users that never bothered to update to Windows 8. There are a host of new features in Windows 10, ranging from updated interfaces to new apps and services. For all of our in-depth thoughts on the new platform, be sure to check out our full review.
Perhaps the most notable thing about the new platform is that you don’t have to pay for it, so long as you already have Windows 8 or Windows 7. But if you’re looking for a reason or two to update your current Windows 8 machine or aging Windows 7 box, here are the top new features in Windows 10 that might make you want to.
