    Ian has posted the answers to his Office quiz - some of them are not quite right IMHO :-)
  • Blog Post: Random roundup of Office news 18th Jan 2008

    Office Quiz I'm liking Ian Moulster's quiz on Office 2007 .  How many can you get - even I struggled with some of them.  He's going to publish the answers next week.. Progress of Office Open XML We are busy preparing for the Ballot Resolution Meeting on the ISO Office Open XML ratification...
  • Blog Post: Random roundup post Christmas

    Hope you had a great Christmas and happy New Year.  I certainly did not work during the break so here is a collection of stuff that I thought was interesting in my inbox when I got back to work today. "A Santa without Excel is like a scrawny kid without a wedgie" I thought I was prone...
  • Blog Post: Apparently, I'm a work of art

    ..which is better than a piece of work so I'll go with it.  I'd like to aspire to being a SmartArt but that may take time.  Still, today I am officially on the front page of the UK Office Online site as the official UK blog and to put my picture there, they had to publish my picture as a official...
  • Blog Post: Hampshire police bring out the big gun

    Good idea to advertise on the back of buses. Shame about the position of the exhaust pipe.
  • Blog Post: Selling out

    Remember that episode of the apprentice when they had to sell stuff on a shopping channel? Well it was my turn on Saturday night when I appeared on QVC 's Small Office Home Office show to sell Home and Student Edition at the very good price of £63.24. It was good experience and there are few things I...
  • Blog Post: Building 5 opens

    Today we finally opened the new building on the Microsoft Campus. You probably don't care but here are some pictures anyway. Sadly we are being moved back to building 2 which looks much older now by comparison.
  • Blog Post: We're Microsoft, we know everything

    No we don't. But that doesn't stop people thinking we are the guys who control the Internet and can bend the IT time and space. Always a pleasure to chat with Jason earlier today as I waited to do my presentation on Office futures. It can be hard to present on the future of technology not just because...
  • Blog Post: Ye Olde Office update

    ok update on this - I think I've got offers of XP Pro, 2000 Pro, 97 dev ed and pro, Office 95 (no box) and Office 4.3. So does anyone have a copy of Office 95 with the original box? (not just the CD jewel case). Does anyone have 4.2, 4.0 or 3.0?? I'm offering limited edition full versions of Office 2007...
  • Blog Post: Ye Olde Office - new for old!

    I'm trying to complete my set of old versions of Office and I'm prepared to blatantly bribe you if you have one for my collection. If anyone fancies donating me an old copy (must include the CD box and preferably the cardboard box) I'll replace yours with a free copy of 2007 for the first copy of: Office...
  • Blog Post: Facebook fatigue

    Another day, another social networking tool. Seems like every week there's another blimmin internet startup craze to get your head round. I remember the days when I would run off and start setting up my space/site/profile/friends list or whatever but now all I feel is fatigue at the thought of it. So...
  • Blog Post: 10 years on.. gosh that went quickly

    This month is my ten year anniversary at Microsoft. You might think that shows a remarkable lack of creativity in career terms and it did strike me that my contratulations and well done note from Bill and Steve (it was a printout) might have read "well done for staying alive and on the payroll for 10...
  • Blog Post: Iconic quiz - name that office app

    I noticed this post today about the new office icons and its a good little quiz for a Monday.. can you name all the applications from the icons? How did you do.. honestly? If you did well on that, here is a harder one: can you name the 7 different Office suites? How many desktop programs and servers...
  • Blog Post: OMG they killed Clippy!

    As we keep saying, using the new Office is childs play. So what better way than creating a comic to explain it. Follow the adventures of Madeline as she discovers the magic ribbon. As we gear up for the consumer release of Windows and Office on Jan 30th this is a fun way we are using to explain the reasoning...
  • Blog Post: recharge my own batteries

    I'm off on holiday for 2 weeks so blog silence will ensue for that time. What should you read into that? well probably that I am sure enough that we are on track for launch and that everything is going smoothly. So have confidence in our timeline. In the meantime, let me leave you with this amusing picture...
  • Blog Post: Strange Weeks

    It's my pleasure to introduce my friend David Weeks, my counterpart in the Windows Vista team. We are often found demoing at events together. As you may know, we are launching in two stages: to business this year and to consumer and retail in the new year. Both launches are joint Windows, Office and...

    oh..kay.. get this for over competitiveness.. A disagreement over a Microsoft Xbox game console exploded into a fight, taunts and eventually a fire that ravaged a Central District house, the Seattle police said Friday morning.None of the four occupants of the house was hurt in the blaze and Seattle...
