Back in March Microsoft has published a new UEFI version (3.11.760.0) for the Surface Pro 3 device. The latest update to the firmware and drivers includes some great remote management features to control the devices hardware. i.e. you can control if a user has access to the camera, Bluetooth stack, microSD reader and more. To configure this on a per devices basis would be challenging so they implemented a remote management feature as well. Just yesterday Microsoft published the tools to manage the UEFI. These are based on PowerShell.
If you want to learn more about the tools please check this TechNet article.

My colleague Tim Aren’t who’s a consultant for End User Computing in our Profesional Service Organization (PSO) at VMware has released a great article on using the brand new ThinApp 4.7.3 SDK. In his article he describes how to use Powershell with the ThinApp SDK. A true must read!
RT @viewgeek: Check VMware View 4.x pool provisioning status with a PS-script and get a mail if it is disabled. Check out: http://3url.de/bj
Again I found a great tweet on Twitter, this time from Joel, the VMware End User Computing Specialist in Sweden. He tweeted a link to a great blog article which can be found here: http://www.vpeeling.com/?p=173. If you are using automatic provisioning together with the option “Stop provisioning on error” in your View environment you may know that provisioning gets stopped if the View Composer encounters an error. Currently it is not possible to get an alert if this happens but the mentioned article gives you a Powershell scripts which helps. Cool stuff.
