It is here, I think, that Microsoft's "mobile first, cloud first" mantra is most clearly seen, because the services that impact end users directly are those that make the most sense on mobile devices.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/cloud/consumer-apps-and-services-microsofts-often-overlooked-crown-jewels" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/cloud/consumer-apps-and-services-microsofts-often-overlooked-crown-jewels#comments Windows Phone Skype Bing Cloud Windows 8 Xbox One Mobile devices Windows RT Office 365 Outlook.com OneDrive Sun, 31 Aug 2014 13:24:00 +0000 42941 at http://winsupersite.com Outlook.com, OneDrive Gain Encryption Protection http://winsupersite.com/outlookcom/outlookcom-onedrive-gain-encryption-protection <div class="field-deck"> Take that, NSA </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Microsoft today announced that it has enabled encryption protection on its consumer-oriented Outlook.com and OneDrive online services.

But the Office 365 services that are available to individuals are quite different than the business versions, leading to some confusion. Indeed, the sheer number of Office 365 offerings is the source of much confusion as well. So let's figure it all out.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/office-365/office-365-primer" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/office-365/office-365-primer#comments Skype Office 2013 Office 365 Office 365 Outlook.com OneDrive Tue, 24 Jun 2014 17:44:00 +0000 40461 at http://winsupersite.com Outlook.com Updated with Advanced Rules, Undo, and In-line Reply http://winsupersite.com/outlookcom/outlookcom-updated-advanced-rules-undo-and-line-reply <div class="field-deck"> Three big new features and some improvements to messaging </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Microsoft today announced a set of new features for its consumer-oriented Outlook.com web email service.
