Still need help! Walking for ALS in four days!

Hey folks.  Last week I reached out to you to support my walk for ALS, and many of you responded and I can’t thank you enough.  I am still shy of my goal and really need your help.  Anything you can give helps, but bigger numbers mean more help to the people suffering from this terrible disease!

Please donate what you can online now at http://my.e2rm.com/PersonalPage.aspx?SID=(!SolicitationID)&LangPref=en-CA.  If you do not want to use your credit card on-line then let me know and I can help you out.

Thanks again for your help!

An Introduction to Windows 8: Mitch on Halton Tech TV

I am surprised that with all the hype and talk I have been doing about Windows 8, I have not blogged about this yet.  Halton Tech TV is a show on our regional cable network in the Oakville/Burlington/Milton area that focuses on different technologies.  Hosted by Robert Duvall of RDC Networks, it brings the newest and most interesting technologies to life.

In mid-August I was invited onto the show to discuss Windows 8 which, at the time, was still in the late preview stages.  Robert and I had a great discussion of the value of Windows 8, and I did a bunch of demos from my HP EliteBook laptop which, although it is still a Windows 7 device, runs Windows 8 beautifully.  HP Canada invited us to film on location in their Canadian Centre of Excellence, where they had a great 40” touch screen for us to use.

It was a great experience, and for IT Pros who are not able to come out and see our sessions live, this TV show is a great way to see what’s new and exciting in Windows 8.

You can watch the show in three parts here:

As always I welcome your comments, and hope that you enjoy the show! –MDG
