Today we interviewed customers about Office during the Microsoft Store celebration for first anniversary of Office 2010. Wynn and Brianna just graduated from high school and talked to us about what they use in Office. We show them a program they can be using for college, OneNote.
Today we interviewed customers about Office during the Microsoft Store celebration for first anniversary of Office 2010. Here Cecilia McGowan, a master gardener, talks about using the free Office Web Apps.
Life in a spreadsheet is a sea of numbers, and it’s no fun to be lost at sea. With tools like conditional formatting (new in Office 2007) and sparklines (new for Office 2010), a sea of data becomes a clear mountain lake. Ok, Ok, enough of the colorful analogies; let me show you how color makes a spreadsheet better in this video recorded today during the Microsoft Store celebration the first anniversary of Office 2010.
Over the past few weeks we have unveiled several professionally made templates for OneNote:
Some of you might be asking how (or why) you use templates in OneNote. Just like for PowerPoint and Word, there are built-in templates for OneNote, including several for meetings, lecture notes, and stationery.
Two videos here: the first from our Top Templates series showing off the template...
This Wednesday, June 15, is the first anniversary of the release of Office 2010. To help in the celebration, writers from the Office Blogs and Office.com team will be answering your questions and demoing the product at the Microsoft Store in Bellevue Square from 11 am to 1 pm. If you happen to be in the area, swing by (driving directions and map). Yes, they do let us out to mingle from time to time.
In a rut? Need some inspiration for your next idea? You will spend no better 5 minutes than reading Austin Kleon’s post Steal Like an Artist. The self-proclaimed “writer who draws” has the seeds for his next book in a presentation of “10 things I wish I’d heard when I was in college.” Aimed at artists and writers, it’s still very useful in business and is great web content since you can read it two ways:
1) Read the sparse slides (a 90-second read).
2) Read the slides with notes (a 5-minute read).
I’ll stay away from summarizing (I mean, it’s just 90 seconds of your time), but my favorite...
It’s a simple thing. You want some help, we want to give it to you. However, we’d like to know what version of Office you have. 2010? 2003? You don’t know? Here’s a way to find out by just glancing at your screen.
I’ve bumped into Ben Rudolph over the past few weeks. He’s a hardware expert around here who is known as—and you can follow him on Twitter at—Ben the PC Guy. His deft mix of hardcore tech blood and everyday appeal is on display at the Windows Experience Blog. His passion about computers—and he is constantly surrounded by several of them—is undeniable.
This week he was interviewed by Geek Wire, the new/old Seattle Tech news site run by Todd Bishop and John Cook. For a guy who uses five or six computers on a daily basis, the hosts ask, “How do you do that?” Ben says his lifesaver is Live Mesh.
Yes! Another vote for this unknown...
Researching a trip? OneNote is the perfect place to catch all your ideas. In this short video, I’ll shows you the 40 free Tripbooks created for Office by travel bloggers from around the world, found at onenotetravel.com.
Last week my team was trading emails on cool sites showing graphs and other plotting of numbers in a visual way.
Yes, we are geeks. But the results seen here are intriguing, sometimes beautiful images that deliver a story about numbers.
Kristin started it on The Inspiration Blog with 22 charts that look more like college dorm room posters. Anneliese chimed in with Nonsensical infographics, and I brought in Flip Flop Fly Ball, where baseball stats meet art.
And that led to a TED talk on why visualizing data is important. Give a listen to David McCandless:
