  • Blog Post: Office Web Apps

    Office Web Apps finally came in to limited beta testing last week – something we call community tech preview (personally I think we should rename to something like sneak peeks). Reviews so far have been good and hopefully take away some of the criticism that it’s been too long coming to market – I think...
  • Blog Post: Can you MakeOfficeBetter.com ?

    I had a look at MakeOfficeBetter.com over the weekend and was actually a little surprised to see it go live today – basically a crowd sourcing site along the lines of Dell’s Ideastorm to solicit feedback on Microsoft Office. It’s not an official site but if this is what our Redmond bods can do in their...

  • Blog Post: SlideShare Ribbon for PowerPoint

    Meet the SlideShare ribbon for PowerPoint View SlideShare presentation or Upload your own. (tags: powerpoint microsoft ) I’m guessing this is what the Office team at Microsoft had in mind when they opened up the Ribbon for extensibility in Office 2007. We have something similar with Office Live where...
  • Blog Post: Microsoft Office – now in a browser

      We just announced here at PDC our Office Web Applications – yep, Office is coming to the browser. I’ll write more on this later but one thing I’ll say up front is this is a very capable version of Office. Much more so than Google Docs IMHO and yes, they will work in IE, Firefox and Safari for...

  • Blog Post: Outlook and natural language

    I was reminded about the cool feature in Outlook 2007 by a comment on my blog. Sarah has a great posted title How I Use Outlook - 7 Tips but I wanted to call this one out in particular.   The new version of Outlook lets you enter appointments on your calendar using natural language. Instead of using...
  • Blog Post: Speed up Outlook

    I came across this great little factsheet: Speed up Outlook 2007 - performance tips earlier this year and have shared it with quite a few friends. People grumble to me that they boot up their machine, start Outlook and then wander off for coffee as it takes anywhere up to 5 minutes to load Outlook. They...

  • Blog Post: Officelabs.com is live

    Very cool – we’re seeing more of this skunkworks type stuff come to the fore at Microsoft which I think is terrific.

    Julian Datta is a legend on the UK Partner Technology Specialist team and comes up with some gems of UC technology quite regularly.

  • Blog Post: How is the Office 2.0 experience?

    The Office 2.0 database is a great list of all the apps you can get (many of them free) on the web and makes for interesting reading from within the walls of Microsoft. Using this list you could choose to pretty much avoid many Microsoft apps and build of a machine based on this list. Congrats to Ismael...
  • Blog Post: Office Live Workspace is out to play

    Scoble has been alluding to this for the last few days and it's now out there - Office Live Workspace . This is one of those products I've known about for a while but had to be very tight lipped on. It brings our Office collab on the web story up to scratch and there is more where that came from. Robert...

  • Blog Post: Twitter in Outlook

    Thanks to Sarah for finding this one and to her for my inevitable slow down in productivity - OutTwit . Now if only Outlook could be configured to allow toast from just the Twitter folder we'd have a competitor to Twitterific . Technorati Tags: twitter , outtwit
  • Blog Post: Office 2007 is a steal

    Get Microsoft Office Ultimate 2007 for just £38.95 - if you're a student. Or £12.95 for a 1 year subscription license. The approximate ERP is £599.99. Seriously, I had to check twice myself as that is ~90% off. There are some qualifying terms of course but if you're in education, you'd be mad not...
  • Blog Post: Get paid by Microsoft to deliver a deployment plan

    Microsoft SharePoint Deployment Planning Services (SDPS) is how and given the high level of interest I have witnessed in SharePoint over the last few months, this makes a lot of sense. As you'd expect, there are a few pre-requisites but nothing a SharePoint expert partner wouldn't have anyway. You can...
  • Blog Post: The Art of (Microsoft) Office

       I stumbled across the Art of Office via my blog aggregator and after bumbling around it for ten minutes and thought "wow, someone in the community has put a lot of effort in to this". Turns out that effort is Microsoft driven as right down at the bottom of the page the Microsoft...

  • Blog Post: Where is the next PowerPoint?

    There was a great article in the WSJ this week about PowerPoint being 20 years old. I learnt a lot from it: PowerPoint was Microsoft's first major acquisition - $14m in cash PowerPoint started on the Mac (see above) It was never designed for a wider audience the sales people David Byrne is a fan! The...
