Either way, the configuration updates are pushed out to all role instances. You can also enable a Remote Desktop connection to one or all roles running in your cloud service.

Microsoft's held high-profile launches of all three products lately, so news of the case is being reported widely — but a basic examination of SurfCast's patent reveals Microsoft's move into selling its own PCs is the key to the complaint. SurfCast owns US Patent #6,724,403, which was filed in October 2000 and issued in April 2004. Broadly, the patent covers selecting a variety of information sources, assigning each of those sources to a tile, and updating those tiles at variable refresh rates.
