Office Newswire: Microsoft, burn the boats already!

Microsoft find themselves in an entirely new and foreign landscape. The successes of their past will not help them here. The demands are new. The language is different.

Office Newswire: Microsoft Office 2013 will not be free

It's eerie, the quiet. Office 2013 went RTM something like three years ago. It feels that way to me at least. Not much new is going on (publicly at least) except for the blog posts from the various Office teams. It's all quiet here on the Western front... Read the rest of this entry →

Can Office 365 and Surface Tablets become Microsoft's Killer Combo? Yep, I think so. As I stated on Wednesday. All of a sudden Windows 8 makes sense to me.
