When it comes to learning about a photographer’s style and technique there is no better place to start than what equipment they use. One of the best thing about a site like Flickr is that it gives you the option to share what kind of camera and lens was used to take the photo, and even the metadata that shows you the settings used. Some sites take things one step further and allow you to peek inside a photographer’s camera bag and find out all the equipment they’re using. If you’re a photographer who wants to share what kind of… Read the full article: What’s Inside Their Camera Bags? These Sites Will Tell You

Mark Kashman (@mkashman) is a senior product manager on the SharePoint marketing team. Last week at the SharePoint Conference 2014 in Las Vegas, Jeff Teper made some exciting announcements regarding SharePoint Online limit increases. I wanted to provide more details so you can digest what this means to you and your business. We are making the following improvements to SharePoint Online: A 1TB site collection limit for OneDrive for Business and team sites : allowing your teams to store more content in a single location. Infinite tenant storage scale: bringing your content to the cloud without compromise. These updates are rolling out live worldwide over the coming weeks. Let’s dive into the details. 1TB site collection limit increase for OneDrive for Business and team sites Now you can spend more time sharing your personal work content. 1 TB will let you establish large team document centers that teams can use – and keep using over time – without needing to introduce unwarranted information architecture complexities. All your site collections – private and public, managed from the SharePoint Online admin center – can now have up to 1TB of storage allocation. You simply assign the desired amount to the selected site collection. The same holds true for users’ 1 OneDrive for Business that start with a default of 25GB/user allocation. Your SharePoint Online admin can now allocate more storage, up to 1TB, to users in the following increments: 50GB, 100GB, 250GB, 500GB, and 1024GB. The new storage quota increases limits for OneDrive for Business. Manage allocations in the SharePoint Online admin center. Infinite tenant storage scale SharePoint Online has seen explosive growth: a 485 percent growth in user access and a 500 percent YoY growth in customer content storage, since April 2013. In the simplest terms, this means customers are leveraging Office 365 more than ever before, both in their OneDrive for Business usage and in collaboration and portal sites. Even with this impressive scale, for our largest customers there has been concern about scaling to meet their growing needs, particularly in the future, as data is growing at an increasing rate. So, Office 365 and SharePoint Online have architected the storage design to enable infinite storage scale – for current storage needs and unlimited future potential. I’d like to take a moment to dissect what this means across storage of your Office 365 investment. Users get a default 25GB of OneDrive for Business storage, + 50GB of email storage, + 5GB for each site mailbox you create, + your total available tenant storage, which for every Office 365 business customer starts at 10GB + 500MB times the number of users 1 . If you and your company have growing storage needs across your various work streams and content types, we think you’ll find Office 365 offers ample headroom–on day one. And if you need more storage, you can now purchase unlimited additional storage right from within your SharePoint Online admin center at a cost per gigabyte (GB) per month. You can click the Buy Storage button from within the SharePoint Online admin center to buy additional storage. Please review the updated SharePoint Online: software boundaries and limits article to learn more. Store your content in Office 365 with fewer limitations Whether you are getting started with SharePoint Online for team collaboration, OneDrive for Business, or your company intranet– know that our cloud is ready for you today, tomorrow, and ultimately for the long-term growth and prosperity of your business. Thanks, Mark Kashman 1 – Kiosk and external users do not contribute to the overall tenant storage pool. They also do not have use rights for OneDrive for Business. Frequently asked questions Q: Which Office 365 plans will get these SharePoint Online improvements? A: Office 365 Enterprise E1, E3, and E4 and Office 365 Education A2, A3, and A4 can have 1TB site collections and unlimited storage potential. The main caveats are that Office 365 Small Business comes with only one site collection, so the tenant storage maximum for it is 1TB. Similarly, those with Office 365 Midsize Business can use up to 20 site collections, so their storage maximum is 20TB. Q. Does this announcement apply to Office 365 Home Premium subscribers? A. No. This article does not apply to the Office 365 Home Premium offering, which combines the latest Office applications with Skype and OneDrive storage. Q. Does this announcement apply to Office 365 dedicated subscribers? A. No. The Office 365 dedicated plans are not receiving this same update, because they are managed in a unique, isolated infrastructure. Q. Does this announcement apply to Office 365 government subscribers? A. No. This article does not apply to and Office 365 government G1, G3, and G4 offerings.

The Nintendo 64 was the last console released by Nintendo to feature cartridges as its form of media.

While the N64 had plenty of games that it’s remembered for, there are plenty more that just didn’t get the praise they deserved in their time. For one reason or another, the games we are going to look at today just wen’t very popular…. Read the full article: 4 Hidden Gems From The Nintendo 64 That You Should Play
