Introducing the new Microsoft Remote Desktop Preview app for Mac – Remote Desktop Services (Terminal Services) Team Blog – Site Home – MSDN Blogs

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/09/11

During the last update of Microsoft Remote Desktop for my Mac, I noticed there is a beta available with a feature very familiar for users of visionapp – ASG-Remote Desktop: it allows you to manage common credentials.

Note the uncommon URLs of both the beta page redirect and the download:

In the mean time, I learned that “Microsoft has acquired HockeyApp. This is a tremendous opportunity to continue to provide developers with the best app development tools and users with the best app experiences.”, but the is new to me. Anyone knows what it is about? A successor of redirects?

New Mac OS X beta of Microsoft Remote Desktop announced.

I’m keeping an eye on this, as future features interest me much: Multiple monitors, Clipboard redirection, Remote Desktop Gateway, Remote Resources (RemoteApp and Desktop Connections), and Azure RemoteApp preview.

BTW: I wasn’t aware Remote Desktop made it this many platforms yet, as I’m mainly a Windows 8.x/7, Mac and Android user, but here you go:

  1. Windows 10 Universal Windows platform (Preview).
  2. Windows 8.1.
  3. Windows Phone.
  4. iOS.
  5. Mac OS X.
  6. Android.

HTTPS Everywhere Firefox/Chrome/Opera extension – Electronic Frontier Foundation

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/09/11

Over time this has become a must have: HTTPS Everywhere | Electronic Frontier Foundation developed by EFF and TOR.

Too bad many sites still do not work correctly with it.

This is especially true for places or networks where HTTP (or even worse HTTPS) is going through a MitM layer, for instance many mobile providers do this by injecting tracking bits to your traffic:
