I absolutely love the very real human togetherness technology is placing within our grasp. Our challenge is to prioritize the people we love and our relationships over other fleeting interests.

Working with SharePoint on a MacBook Air can be a real challenge at times. So I’ve spent some time researching my options. Office365 and Windows 8 in a VM. Let’s say I’m impressed with how Office365 gives me most of what I need with awesome performance.

Aggregated tasks are pretty slick I must admit. And living and breathing in Yammer I found a real need recently to have a personal space that simply isn’t there in that tool. SkyDrive Pro fills that need fairly well where I can invite others in on an individual use basis.

I am very disappointed that Macs will not have Dropbox-like sync functionality via SkyDrive Pro. This will continue to alienate many in my organization who see all the other players (Google Drive, Dropbox, etc) provide native file integration and sync to Macs. I’ve heard a few folks close to Microsoft simply say that it is just very difficult to do. I ask “Are you not up to the challenge then (because clearly others have figured it out)?” And to add iOS support for SkyDrive Pro before providing the same functionality to OSX makes no sense to me at all.

Windows 8 is still a very jarring experience for me. And for some reason I was thinking all the Office 2013 apps were Windows 8 apps. Not so. I guess they are not “all in” with the modern UI quite yet.

A QUOTE

A course more promising
Than a wild dedication of yourselves
To unpathed waters, undreamed shores; most certain,
To miseries enough: no hope to help you;
But, as you shake off one, to take another:
Nothing so certain as your anchors; who
Do their best office, if they can but stay you
Where you’ll be loth to be: besides, you know,
Prosperity’s the very bond of love,
Whose fresh complexion and whose heart together
Affliction alters.
