Internet Explorer 9 Beta

Microsoft has recently released IE 9 Beta version. What's new? According to MS, it has a more streamlined design, fewer dialog boxes to click through, intuitive navigation, and many new features that speed up your web browsing experience.

Features like Pinned Sites let you pin your favorite website directly to the taskbar for one-click access. Other features, like hardware acceleration, deliver an overall faster browsing experience. With Internet Explorer 9, websites perform and feel more like the programs you use every day on your PC.

Download Manager is a new feature that keeps a running list of the files you download from the Internet and notifies you when a file could be malicious. It also lets you pause and restart a download—if you have a slow internet connection—and shows you where to find downloaded files on your computer.

More News from Our Managed Services Department

Here we are, already one month into our new patching schedule.
 
We'd like to take this opportunity to announce that Darren Khan has been promoted to Manager of Managed Services. You all know Darren; he has been with Integrated IT for almost two years in the Remote Services Center. Darren's mission is to make continuous improvements to our Managed Services offerings, always providing you with the latest and greatest technological advancements. His first major effort is to get these patch scores as high as possible.

But we need your help: remember to leave those workstations on every Thursday night!

The new patch deployment schedule has made both servers and workstations more secure through the rapid deployment of security fixes.  This cuts down on malware/virus intrusions and keeps all systems as healthy as possible.  The more up-to-date your machines are the less downtime you will have.

Please join us in welcoming our newest employee, Ray DiDonna, to Integrated IT Solutions. Ray, a Network Engineer, comes to us with 20 years of IT experience! He has joined the Remote Services Center here in Waltham. Chances are, if you call in for remote support, you will reach Ray one of these days. Ray enjoys steak bombs and long walks on the beach. Oh, and he's a great addition to our Remote Services department!


Google Voice Comes to the iPhone

At long last, Google Voice has been officially released as an iPhone App. (And it's free!) Some of the features include:

  • Cheap rates for international calls
  • Free text messaging to U.S. numbers
  • Voicemail transcription
  • Display your Google Voice number as caller ID when making calls
In addition to these advantages, the app provides some benefits that make using Google Voice on your iPhone a much better experience:
  • With push notifications, the app will alert you instantly when you receive a new voicemail or text message
  • Google Voice can access your phone's contact list, making it easy to set up quick dial contacts
