  • Blog Post: I'm Back

    I've been having one of those times recently when you know you have to do something (e.g. blogging) but you put it off for a couple of days, then a couple more, then push it to the end of the week, then the next and before you know it a couple of months have passed. Not good. Rather than start writing...
  • Blog Post: Pick a browser, any browser, show it to the audience...

    Following on from my previous post on browsers and anti-competitiveness, here is one example of how we are trying to improve customer experience by helping our competitors ensure that their products will work with Vista. http://news.com.com/2100-1032_3-6109455.html As well as the large amount of documentation...
  • Blog Post: Amusing 'Vista' on Brussels Bureaucrats

    Whilst browsing the news sites I came across this rather amusing view on the recent goings on concerning the EU's views on Microsoft. There are some quotes that definitely made me smile; those that deal with Windows XP version N (the one without a browser) for starters. http://news.com.com/2010-1012_3...
  • Blog Post: Back Blogging after a break, now where do I start?

    OK, what with travelling about a bit and a splash of holiday time my blog has been seriously neglected and now there is so much to talk about I don't know where to start. It's a good thing that Live Writer doesn't have a self blogging capability like the XBox 360 otherwise I'd be in trouble although...
  • Blog Post: Blogging at last!

    Hello one and all. I thought that is was about time that I joined in with this blogging malarkey and started to share my thoughts and findings on all things Microsoft Office and anything else that I've found interesting in the big bad world of technology. but first.... All about me! My name...
  • Blog Post: MSFT Partner Bot for your Messenger Contacts

    Here is a little project that I've been desperate to tell you all about! I am very pleased to announce that the PartnerBot is now live. Partner Bot is your Instant Messenger 'data digger', which quickly retrieves partner-related information and shows you where you can find the answers you need. Simply...
  • Blog Post: Has it really been that long?

    Well here we are in 2007 and I've just noticed how long it's been since I last posted. I'd just like to point out for the benefit of my manager that this was due to my complete dedication to ramping up for our Business Evolution Roadshow that we undertook in December and not due to lack of commitment...
  • Blog Post: Rebuilding Microsoft?

    An interesting Friday read . I think rebuilding is a bit strong as I wasn't aware that we had collapsed. Perhaps remodelling would have been a better term to use?
  • Blog Post: Jet-lag: - a useful way to get ready for your working day!

    As some of you probably know it was TechReady 3 in Seattle last week and 5000+ Microsoft employees of a technical persuasion were in town for the biannual techno love-in. There was lots of cool stuff on show both in the keynotes and breakouts but as this is an internal only event I'll have to sift through...
  • Blog Post: The new way to work

    I've been sitting writing some of the content for our upcoming Exchange, Vista and Office road show (more dates tba) and it suddenly struck me how much these new products have already changed the way that I work. I know that a lot of people have seen some of the cool new user experience stuff that has...

  • Blog Post: No holds barred opinion of a Google Apps

    Here is an interesting response by one of our Partners to the recent announcement by Google offering Apps for your Domain. Obviously it would be foolish to think that the Google support situation won't change and the comparison is a little unbalanced in terms of the current states of the two technologies...
  • Blog Post: Forget the iPhone, this is the interesting announcement from Macworld Expo

    Ok, so maybe the title is a little unfair. The iPhone does look quite cool and sounds like (no pun intended) it has some cool features such as the 'Pinch' feature that you can use to zoom into a webpage. One concern is how thin the device appears to be and therefore potentially fragile although I'm guessing...
  • Blog Post: Causing a Security Splash - but is it good to have Microsoft and the word 'bundling' in the same sentence?

    Our OneCare offering is getting some positive press coverage at present. It looks as though our venture into this market is welcomed by consumers given the chart position held in the US market. I have to admit that I'm looking forward to getting my parents onto OneCare (hmm that sounds I want them on...
