Microsoft Office and non-Windows platforms

Good to hear that Microsoft is supposably releasing an updated version of Office for Mac later this year. When I switched to Mac a little over a year ago, I thought I’d spend most of my time running Windows (eg on Parallels), but I actually found myself surprisingly content with the Mac OS. Pretty much everything I do now runs in the browser, with the exception of a few programs: Word and...

Using Excel 2010 Sparklines to Analyse Google Analytics

Seriously, how would businesses survive if it weren’t for Excel? :-) Excel is perfect for analysing analytics data in a variety of ways (eg using Pivot tables and Conditional formatting) and it keeps getting better.

I could probably spend a happy half day simply linking to stories she’s been posting over the last month… so do yourself a favor and subscribe to her if you haven’t already. Back in early November she posted a quick Q & A about the recently announced Office Web (coming next year probably)...

Office 14 for the web

One of the announcements at PDC was about Microsoft’s foray into the web based Office space. This was met with initial excitement, and seems to be answer to the (small I suspect) group of people wondering how Microsoft can compete with Google Docs, Zoho and other online offerings. The demo here, with Antoine Leblond and Chris Bryant is a nice indication of how it will operate. I’ve been a sceptic...
