AT&T has just rolled out Wifi Calling for the iPhone 6 and 6s. This feature was previously limited to subscribers in the Houston area but is now available nationwide. AT&T was the last holdout on the technology but they have finally made the switch (Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile already participate). This feature allows your iPhone to make and receive calls and/or Text messages when cell service is spotty or non-existent, over your phones’ WiFi connection. To turn on Wi-Fi calling, go to Settings > Phone > Wi-Fi Calling, and tap the slider to turn it on.

To Thread or not to Thread – Optimizing Integrations with Microsoft CRM

We love to customize Microsoft Dynamics CRM solutions here @Beringer. We’ve been working with Microsoft Dynamics CRM since its inception, and we’re always finding innovative ways to integrate it with foreign systems.

Memory, CPU and Disk speed can contribute to a slow integration, but we typically see internet latency as the primary bottleneck.

Microsoft Surface Book – The Full Story

The Microsoft Surface book is Microsoft’s next step in the evolution of its Surface touchscreen device. It is the inevitable leap, and it’s the missing link that connects a touch pad with a laptop. Think of it as an IPad and laptop in one, but way better. Running windows 10, you will have the access, programs and features you have come accustomed to. This isn’t a tablet, it’s a laptop. The screen has an innovative “dynamic fulcrum hinge” that connects to the keyboard to allow it to fold up just like a laptop.
