Why do we still buy $12 calendars even though finding what day it is as simple as looking at your computer or phone? It's not new to create your own, but I wanted to show you how simply you can do it with a free template at Office Online.

Want to see what the future looks like based on where today's software and devices are headed? Kurt DelBene, the President of the Office Business Division, recently introduced the world to a future vision of productivity. This elegant, non-narrated video is based on reams of research.
The video certainly is cool, but I wanted to see where today's technology is laying the foundation for this vision. I talked with the creators of video, looked at their data, and generally peeked behind the curtain. Here's my video connecting the dots between the tools of today and the visions for tomorrow. Below the video, you can find links on how to get your hands on these tools now.

For more on OneNote, read yesterday's post from our ace OneNote writer or Crabby's take on OneNote. You can download the free Office 2010 Beta (with OneNote included) here; it won't expire until 10/31/10.
I’ve been a big fan, er, user of OneNote, even before I came to Microsoft. Here’s some of the ways you can use it to share information. I’ll have links below to dig deeper on the subjects I touch upon.
Don’t know about OneNote? I made an introductory video awhile back or you can test drive it for free with a Office 2010 90-day trial.
Now you can learn about using Word, Excel, OneNote, and PowerPoint 2007 (or the 2010 beta) in a new and fun way: Ribbon Hero. There have been several cool things I've seen here in my 2 1/2 years at Office, but I gotta say this is the best mix of fun + training I've seen. --Doug Thomas
