Book review: Mining the social Web

What can someone find out about your tweets, and the people who retweet and respond to them? Rather a lot - including why they include extraneous characters that only get noticed when they're photographed behind Barack Obama (despite being limited to 140 characters, tweets include metadata like what kind of character encoding they use and a great deal more).

For details of what Twitter, Facebook and other social networks make public and how anyone using the APIs can work with that information, check out my review of Mining the social Web over at ZDNet UK

I've been waiting for the new features in Windows InTune 2 since I first heard about InTune

InTune is a cloud service for managing PCs remotely; in the first version it's all about managing Windows, which is all very well, but if a business has enough PCs to manage it has apps on them to manage as well. That's where Windows InTune 2 comes in.

Windows InTune 2 goes into beta: kew new features include licence management
