A couple of weeks ago, as you may recall, I was in Seattle.
I wish I had been able to see more, do more, eat more…but I did what I could in the 5 days I had. Which was actually, quite a lot.
One of the best things I did? I got to meet my friends from Microsoft Windows and Office. They had a nice soiree at the Microsoft Store in University Village (Stunning, fabulous store!), and offered some great giveaways while there.
Two of the evenings I was in town, the crew came up to our penthouse and joined us in some festivities. We mingled, we learned, we got to know each other as well as hear about some exciting things coming up in the future. Like Windows 8, but I’m not talking. Yet. Let’s just say it’s going to knock your socks off.
As many of you also know, I am a HUGE proponent of Live Writer for bloggers. If you blog, and you haven’t yet downloaded the FREE Live Writer – please do it. Then come back here and tell me how much better your life is. Because it WILL be.
A new to me Office product is OneNote. Think Pinterest, but better. You can capture text, web pages, pictures from your hard drive, music, recipes, you name it…and keep them all together in notebooks. Like a Trapper Keeper, but the pages don’t fall out when you get on the bus. Amazing, and so many practical applications for it. Do take a look – it may already be installed on your computer!!
To encourage you to meet my friends, we’re giving away that same computer from a few posts back. This one, in fact…
The Acer Aspire S3 ($899) Enjoy life on the go with the Aspire S Series. This techno-wonder comes in an ultra-aerodynamic, super-slim design, yet delivers everything you expect from a notebook. Built with lots of storage and 7 hours of battery life—this PC is perfect for the mom on the go. LOOK at that beauty. My laptop is blushing…it knows it’s met its match. Oh, you want it, don’t you?
Of course you do. Heck, I want it, too.
