With Remote Desktop, Microsoft Hopes You’ll Buy PC and Use Windows 8 Apps on iPad, Android Phones is a post by Chuong Nguyen from Gotta Be Mobile.Alongside with an announcement that the Microsoft Office productivity suite will be coming soon to Apple’s iPad tablet, Microsoft also announced that it will be launching a new version of its Remote Desktop software for iPhone, iPad, and Android smartphones and tablets. The Remote Desktop software will work also on various editions of Windows as well as Apple’s OS X desktop operating systems. Further, with Windows Server 2012 R2 Microsoft is introducing the Microsoft Remote Desktop app, available for download in application stores later this month, to provide easy access to PCs and virtual desktops on a variety of devices and platforms, including Windows, Windows RT, iOS, OS X and Android. With Remote Desktop, if your PC is on at home or at work and is connected to the Internet, you could log onto the Internet with your mobile device–whether that’s an iOS or Android smartphone or tablet in the case of mobile road warriors–and log onto that home or work system, access your files, and run apps. Certain DRM-protected content, like iTunes movies and TV shows, won’t stream over to your phone, but most content and apps should work without a hitch. This will give you pretty much the power of a full Windows 7 or Windows 8 PC in the palm of your hands, and as mobile devices are getting faster and more powerful–Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 already ships with 3 GB RAM, a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, and 32 GB of storage–you’ll benefit both from a robust mobile OS and the power of a PC when you need extra work done. While most consumers won’t find a need for a remote desktop application in their day-to-day workflow, mobile professionals may still find it benefitial as there are still some niche applications that could only be accessible on a PC. With a remote desktop, those working in sensitive environments would pretty much have a similar setup to a thin client for their enterprise system so if they lose their phones or tablets, they can still protect the content on their main machine and cut off remote access from that stolen device. This way, the content won’t fall into the wrong hands. And according to Engadget, the Remote Desktop app will be compatible with iOS 6 and iOS 7 along with Android Gingerbread or higher. Microsoft’s solution will compete with a number of already existing remote desktop applications on Android and iOS, including Parallels Mobile, OnLive, and Dell’s PocketCloud.With Remote Desktop, Microsoft Hopes You’ll Buy PC and Use Windows 8 Apps on iPad, Android Phones is a post by Chuong Nguyen from Gotta Be Mobile.

In his "5 reasons Surface tablets blow away iPads for a mobile business workforce" piece, my colleague Derrick Wlodarz explained why Remote Desktop on Windows RT (and, by implication, Windows 8) is better compared to third-party clients on Android and iOS. Derrick says that the former offers a richer feature set, a smoother experience, improved stability, less compatibility issues and comes with no initial cost (because it is free, as a built-in feature). As you can tell, the lack of official Remote Desktop apps on Android and iOS tips the scale in Microsoft's favor. That is about to change, as Microsoft has announced that it will release Remote Desktop apps on "a variety of devices and platforms", which include Windows, Windows RT, OS X, Android and iOS. The software giant says the offerings will be introduced with Windows Server 2012 R2, which launches later this month, on October 18, alongside Windows 8.1. The hat tip goes to Mary Jo Foley who dug up this information that was buried inside one of Microsoft's lengthy press releases. I find it interesting that the software giant did not announce the new apps with the usual fanfare which is usually associated with even the tiniest of app updates. Perhaps Microsoft is afraid to signal that it is slowly crippling Windows RT's chances against Android and iOS, and moving one step closer towards fully embracing the new "devices and services" mantra. The Android and iOS apps will offer a competent feature set from the get-go, according to Microsoft Valued Professional Michel Roth and CITEworld (that posted some screenshots). The former version will likely support Android versions as old as Gingerbread while the latter is only expected to run on iOS 6 and iOS 7.

Microsoft is all set to launch their Remote Desktop app with the roll out of Windows Server 2012 R2, where it will be available not only on just Windows, Windows RT and OS X, but also in addition, iOS and Android sometime later in October. This would be the first time that such a popular remote desktop software has been made available to its rival mobile platforms. Apart from that, a certain Michel Roth, who happens to be one of Microsoft’s Most Valuable Professionals, did claim that the OS X app has also undergone a major overhaul. Apart from that, we also know that the iOS version will offer support for both iOS 6 and 7 versions, while those who are running on the Android mobile operating system from Google will be able to play nice with the Remote Desktop app as long as they have Android Gingerbread running underneath the hood. It remains to be seen just when will Microsoft’s Remote Desktop roll out to the respective app stores, but why not making the same thing available to their very own Windows Phone 8 platform? Controlling your desktop from your smartphone makes plenty of sense, and it would come in handy especially when you are working overseas, and would love to check out something on your local machine whenever you are out of the country.

Press Release: (Berkeley, CA) – During a time of year when the beer market is overrun with pumpkin and Octoberfest-style beers, Bison Brewing dares to separate itself from the pack with its unique seasonal offering––Gingerbread Ale. “Our Gingerbread Ale holds a very special place in my heart. It is a tremendous source of pride and tradition for Bison,” boasts Bison’s owner and brewmaster, Daniel Del Grande. “Bison has been brewing Gingerbread Ale, since 1990. Nowadays, people are no strangers to spiced beers, but back in the early 90‘s our Gingerbread Ale was extremely innovative and ahead of its time.” Gingerbread Ale is a delicately spiced holiday porter brewed with ginger, nutmeg and a touch of cinnamon. It boasts an intoxicating aroma of fresh baked gingerbread cookies straight from the oven, with well-balanced flavors of molasses, chewy dark malts and holiday spice. This year, Del Grande increased both the amount of cinnamon and ginger in the beer, giving Gingerbread Ale a more slightly more intense spice profile than previous years. “Imagine dipping a fresh baked gingerbread cookie into a rich, roasty porter and then taking a bite. That’s what my Gingerbread Ale tastes like,” says Del Grande with a devious grin. “Just like biting the head off of a drunk little gingerbread man.” This year, Bison released its Gingerbread Ale in brand new packaging, which matches the new brand look and feel it launched earlier this year. In lieu of its old silver, almost Christmas-like packaging, Gingerbread Ale now flaunts a snazzy new label and 4-pack featuring an authentic, hand-drawn Gingerbread Man on a background of autumnal browns and reds. “Personally, I think the new packaging resembles a gingerbread house,” jokes Ashley Routson, Bison’s Director of Awesomeness and all things marketing. “It totally says ‘eat me’––or in this case, ‘drink me.’ I just drooled thinking about it.” Gingerbread Ale is now available in 12 oz. 4-packs and draft.
