  • Blog Post: Office 2008 for Mac: BFD!

    BFD! Big Friday Deals. Best Friday Destinations. The mall, online - wherever I can find them, I love a bargain. And there is no better bargain-hunting day than Black Friday , the day after Thanksgiving. En masse, we will drag our L-tryptophan dosed selves off of our couches and into the crowds in search...
  • Blog Post: Welcome to London!

    Another city, another expo! I’ve been travelling on and off since Apple Expo in Paris giving some Office 2008 training to Apple Store staff and key partners and resellers! It feels good to finally be able to show our new offering (well, part of it at least!). So far, the reception has been great and...
  • Blog Post: Microsoft at Apple Expo: It’s not all about Office!

    So, my last post was in French... If you are wondering here's what it was all about! One thing different about the Microsoft stand at Apple Expo is that it is not all about Office! We look at what the Mac community is interested in and organize some presentations around these. For example, this year...
  • Blog Post: Microsoft à Apple Expo: Pas seulement à propos d’Office

    Ce que j’aime bien sur le stand de Microsoft à Apple Expo, c’est que ce n’est pas seulement à propos d’Office! Nous invitons différents intervenants pour montrer comment ils utilisent les différentes technologies de Microsoft ou encore pour discuter de sujets intéressant les utilisateurs Mac. À l’affiche...

  • Blog Post: Hello from the new General Manager of the Macintosh Business Unit - Craig Eisler

    Hi folks, Wow! I can’t believe I’m actually here - General Manager of Microsoft’s Macintosh Business Unit. I would not have guessed this is where I would’ve landed when I rejoined Microsoft. But after looking at several great options over the course of the past couple months, I jumped at the Mac BU...
  • Blog Post: Silverlight Excitement

    Are you excited about Silverlight? I am. In case you haven't heard, Silverlight is a new rich internet application platform developed by Microsoft with support on both Windows and Macintosh systems. It's pretty awesome.

    Spring is here and I don't know where the time has gone... So apologies for not posting earlier!

  • Blog Post: Confessions of a Mac Switcher at Microsoft

    Hi. My name is Blair and I'm a switcher. I guess it all started around OS X. I'd been working in a Linux shop for a little while. On DOS and Windows before that. I was already hooked on the command line, but couldn't find a windowing environment that kept me satisfied. That's when a friend of mine...

    Today kicks off our official sponsorship of TidBITS , and it's a real Halloween treat for us to work with this legendary online newsletter (sixteen years and counting) and the amazing Adam and Tonya Engst. We've been talking to them a bunch since Macworld last year about how we should do something together...
  • Blog Post: Closet space, the final frontier

    The last event of C4 was a visit to Chicago's Adler Planetarium, with a special behind the scenes (and beneath the stairs) tour of the computer room that runs the video conferencing room and the CyberSpace classroom.  Well, "room" is charitable.  "Closet" would be better.  "Crawlspace", "pit" or "graduate...
  • Blog Post: Checking out and checking in

    C4 is over and I'm back in Seattle, which means these last two posts will be Almost Live-blogging C4. I get about 60 emails every day from a robot. Well, not a robot that moves around, but our version control system -- the server that manages our project's source code.  Every time someone checks in a...
  • Blog Post: Film at Eleven

    It's Olof again, liveblogging from C4. John Gruber took us on a tour of Apple User Interface last night, and talked about consistency and uniformity.  But he really got the thought provokage started with the observation    "Designing an app is like directing a movie." There is a building wave of people...
  • Blog Post: C4 is Teh Bomb

    Hi - I'm Olof.  I guess I'm the first "guest blogger" on MacMojo.  I'm a developer on the Mac Office team, and for the weekend, I'm in Chicago at C4. I have a really strong sense of what C4 is going to be like, even though I've never been to one before.  In fact this is the first one.  There is no precedent...
  • Blog Post: Office Delay? Ya Don't Say.

    No, seriously, you don't say (or shouldn't), because it isn't true. Over the last few days, some Mac sites have been reporting that the Universal Binary version of Office for Mac (officially unnamed, but currently code-named Office 12) has been delayed, but there is no delay or deviation from our development...

    (Sorry, Charles.) Hiya folks! I'm Erik Schwiebert , one of the development leads here in the MacBU.
