We're all about productivity and getting things done here in the back offices of the Office Blog command center. We've made a few changes to the blog in the past several months that make it super easy to read and keep up with our latest posts. All you need to know are these three power tips.
Tip# 1: Use all of Outlook's nifty RSS features
Do you use an RSS reader? Chances are good you already have one - Outlook comes with most editions of Office today (except for Home & Student), and it has a few cool reading features built in:
Tip# 2: Read the Office Blog on your Windows Phone
Have a Windows Phone? We just released a quick simple app that you lets scan the latest blog headlines, click a post, and read it on your phone. If you don't have a Windows Phone, then you can just use your favorite RSS reader on your mobile device and plug in any of the RSS feeds shared above.
Creating a Windows Phone App for the blog was a fun little side project for us. We used a simple Windows Phone app toolkit from Microsoft Evangelist Chris Koenig and created it in a weekend. If you'd like to learn more about how we created the app, check out this behind-the-scenes post.
Tip# 3: Pin Office Blog to your task bar
Do you use IE9 and Windows 7? Then you can pin the Office Blogs to your task bar for an easy way to scan the latest posts or go directly to the Office Blog or Office app home pages.

Friends with a WP7 - check out the new Office Blogs app!
I am SO much going to take you up for your Office blog app "advertisement" (nah; jesting a bit here).
A bit more seriously; in 2 weeks I can renew my cellphone subscription and I have done some /serious/ investigations into the Windows Phone... For the record, this involved the following: reading and viewing lots of reviews, installing the SDK (and working with it), finding "open roms" on the Innernet to play with a full virtual experience, look for "windows phone" comments on Android fora (I kid you not! if you want to investigate something take on the good /and/ bad sides) and last but certainly not least: after all this play with a real phone in the store two or three times.
Well, I can say that the critter still has a few short comings, this holds especially truth if you want to use one outside of the US. But having said that; in my opinion the caveats can't weigh up against the heavy advantages. This thing is hot ;-)
Needless to say but within 3 weeks I hope to be the proud owner of a new Windows phone as well! It's going to be a Samsung (not sure which yet) and I'm also not planning on leaving my current operator T-Mobile.
BUT, rest assured that I'll be taking on this app as well, can't wait to try commenting on some posts using the Windows Phone :-)
