Office 365 – Save Outlook e-mails & attachments to SharePoint Online programmatically

But one rule that is sacrosanct is that the Newswire is written in a steam-of-conscience manner. A surprising good week for Office news and opinions. I have, of course, offered my thoughts and opinions about the items below ... Read the rest of this entry →

Office Newswire: Office + iPad – 12.16.2011

I have an old tablet PC. I downloaded Windows 8 Developer Preview and installed it on the tablet. I like it but it is quirky. I'm looking forward to the next iteration of Windows 8 (and the next iteration of Office!). In the meantime, I'm wondering just how far behind Microsoft will be in the tablet wars when they release Windows 8 and the next generation of Office... Read the rest of this entry →

A couple weeks ago (actually last week), I made a passing reference to MOJO. I was speaking then of Microsoft Office 365 numbers and that it points to maybe Microsoft is starting to recapture their MOJO. But what is MOJO? I suppose it depends.
