The new Office from Microsoft is here and it really encompasses what Office users, computer users and tablet users really want. Programs that are smart. That keep them connected to the files and documents they need at any time they want, no matter what device they use. The ability to continue to be productive when using touch. I am actually writing this entire blog using the touch screen keyboard on my Surface device and it's excellent. I flew out to Vancouver to train local computer specialists on the new Office; I didn’t once have to compromise my tablet experience by switching back to my laptop. Office on my tablet helped me be incredibly productive on the go.
Be honest. How long did you wait for your computer to boot up this morning?
If it was more than a couple of minutes, I feel your pain – there was a time that I’d start my PC, then head off to make coffee. When I’d come back, it’d be almost ready for me. Because I found something to do in the interim, I could live with the delay.

Windows 8 has arrived and is on so many beautiful devices! I am heading out into my local stores today just to see all the different designs and new devices running Windows 8 on them! This is going to be so much fun! I am so excited that I even made some home-made 'Windows 8 cookies' that I am bringing with me! That's how excited I am. Make sure you...
Windows 8 is just days away from release. And while there’s a whole lot of buzz around everything from live tiles to streaming music, there are a few things you need to do to make your upgrade experience the best it can be.
It is a fun experience navigating Windows 8 both on a Tablet and on a PC. With the new Touch experience, you can navigate the new menus that make Windows 8 so beautiful with simple gestures. Though mouse and keyboard users are able to navigate very simply and the clicks are very similar. This means that no matter what Windows 8 device you pickup, you will know how to navigate with ease! But how do you navigate Windows 8 when the first thing you see looks so different?
"Re-imagined and yet simpler than ever before." That's my first take on the Windows® 8 Release Preview. It has been out for a while now allowing the world to test out and experience the upcoming 're-imagined' Windows®8. I honestly have to say that the Live Tiles function has to be my most favourite feature introduced into the new Microsoft® ecosystem. The fact that at first glance I can see everything that’s new and happening in my multiple email inbox's, what's new with my friends on my Social Media Networks, my favourite news feeds giving me the latest headlines and so much more! It just makes things so much easier to see what's new and the latest info on the surface without having to load up an app. But what are Live Tiles?
