Thursday, January 19th, 2012

I’ve never had this problem myself, but if you’re running multiple email clients and Outlook suddenly disappears, you might want to try this out …

Outlook is not my main email client and I never really used it that much. Still, I have it installed as a part of my Office 2010 installation, and I tend to use it sometimes to test a new plug-in or feature that I would like to write about. For the past month or so I have been experiencing a rather puzzling issue that I never bothered to look into until today.


How to Extract Images from Office Documents

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

There a bunch of different ways to extract images from MS Office documents; I generally just use the Print Screen function and Photoshop, but the method described in this article does look a bit quicker than the way I do it …

Office documents may contain images and other media besides text. I sometimes get article suggestions by email in Microsoft Word format.

While Windows Live SkyDrive can allow you to share documents, the person with whom you wish to share an Office document with will have to sign up for a new account and learn how to use it. This has caused frustration for many users. Facebook is the largest social network in the world and access is easy. Now sharing and collaborating Office documents on Facebook has been streamlined. is a relatively new service integrating Web applications with Facebook. This article will demonstrate how this is done.

If you use Google’s cloud based services, you might find this interesting …

How are you managing your documents? Are you using a desktop application like Microsoft Office or Open Office, or do you prefer a cloud based service like Google Docs or Zoho?

The Microsoft Office add-in, Office Live Files closes the existing gap between Microsoft’s popular Office suite and their online service Office Live.

Microsoft Shouldn’t Break Up, But Break Away from its Antiquated Business Model

The settlement eventually ended government plans to break up Microsoft into two companies. Yesterday, a Microsoft shareholder asked why the company doesn’t breakup now. It’s a good question. From a shareholder perspective, breakup is probably the best way to return value back to company owners.
