Here’s what I’ve learned in the last month…

    • Suresh Kumar posted Celebrating the completion of the most advanced subsea cable across the Atlantic.  Marea, Spanish for tide, is a joint project between Microsoft, Facebook and global telecommunication infrastructure company Telxius. Lying more than 17,000 feet below the ocean’s surface, Marea is the most technologically advanced subsea cable to cross the Atlantic Ocean, and the first cable to connect Virginia and Spain, landing in Virginia Beach and Bilbao.
    • techradar shared Leaked Microsoft Whiteboard app boasts some slick new stylus tricks. This app comes with the Surface Hub and was in preview via the Windows Store but isn’t currently available there. I’ll keep my eyes open for it to come back as it’s a great way to whiteboard if you have a screen with a pen!

Back issues of Luper’s Learnings are available via the archive at for your convenience and perusal.
