Microsoft Office 15 video: “it goes where you go”

Microsoft Office 15 video: “it goes where you go”

If Microsoft's latest official video for the newest edition of Office is anything to go by, the software giant's main focal point in this installment is portability. It's a very stylized video that symbolizes having your Office documents with you at home, on the road, on the train, in rural America...anywhere on the planet. In other words, the wonderful world of Office is ready to marry the cloud.

Windows XP support countdown timer begins now

As of today, you have exactly two years left to get support on your Windows XP-powered computers. The same goes for Microsoft Office 2003. Okay, so it's not exactly time to flip over the sand timer, but it is finally a real milestone that points to the death of an operating system that, for years and years and years, simply would not die. And it means that hordes of companies around the country are finally going to need to upgrade.

Microsoft branding cull leaks plus Office 15 tablet UI tease

Microsoft branding cull leaks plus Office 15 tablet UI tease

Microsoft is set to retire the Zune and Windows Live brands with Windows 8, it's reported, as well as offer a switchable tablet/desktop UI in the Office 15 apps for increased finger-friendliness. The so-called "Touch Mode" button has been spotted in the Office 15 technical preview but is not yet functional, according to ZDNet's source, but which will presumably boost icon size among other tweaks for those using the software in Metro mode on tablets and touchscreen all-in-ones.

Microsoft snipes at Google Apps in latest ad

Microsoft snipes at Google Apps in latest ad

Microsoft can't seem to stop taking pot-shots at Google, and following the privacy-fear-flogging Gmail Man video comes an attack on the Office-rivaling Google Apps. The new video - which you can see after the cut - pits a sleazy Google Apps salesman against the enterprise market and, somewhat bizarrely, some soulful crooning about how we should fear the "Googlighting" man and the possibility that Google could simply pull the plug on features we're reliant on or, in fact, whole services.

Office for iPad denied by Microsoft

Office for iPad denied by Microsoft

This morning's report that an image of Office on the iPad was a precursor to a full app release has been denied in kind by Microsoft. The company has said that not only was the report that the app would be coming in just weeks untrue, but the idea that they are actually in the process of creating Office for iOS may well be untrue entirely. Of course this app would be one of the most hotly downloaded document editors on the iTunes App Store if it were released, so we must assume that Microsoft is simply putting a greater effort into releasing a final version eventually.

SlashGear Morning Wrap-Up: January 31, 2012

We're going to start seeing leaked and/or pre-released information about Mobile World Congress 2012 pretty soon, folks, and the flood does begin right here in ernest with a rather intimate look at the HTC Ville with Sense 4.0. We've got a report that iPhone 5 will be rolling out with NFC for the masses to pay their bills. And for your third completely unrelated news bit to start the morning off right: that conversation the president had with us on Google+ ended up speaking about SOPA - as if it's not already dead.
