Ribbon Hero 2: the game you can play at work

Ribbon Hero 2 has been out for about three weeks now. It is outpacing all our past projects in downloads by a wide margin. So far, I’d categorize the user feedback on “RH2” in the following way: Haven’t tried it: that is the dumbest thing I can imagine Have tried it: this is cool, fun,…

OneNote Web App, cloud sync of notes, and Ribbon Hero for OneNote

Three great things are newly available. The first is that the web version of OneNote is now available to the public. Here’s the official blog post. This is something I’ve been waiting a long time for, and it nicely solves a few problems: When you want to use OneNote’s multi-user collaboration capabilities with a friend who doesn’t have…

64-bit "Print to OneNote" solution now available

Good old David Rasmussen who is Group Program Manager of OneNote has built (in his “spare” time) a way to send printouts to OneNote 2007 directly on 64-bit Vista and Win7. It’s a little clunkier than the built-in 32-bit only solution that comes with OneNote 2007, but if you use a 64-bit OS like I do you’ve…

I Heart OneNote

There’s a new website called iheartonenote.com. It’s a place to discuss OneNote with other people, share tips, notebooks, etc. So many people post emotional connection stories about OneNote that “heart” seems appropriate (FWIW, last time I checked a piece of software can’t yet have your baby).

Australian students get a deal on Office 2007 (and OneNote!)

I’m hearing some buzz about a 90-day offer going on in Australia. If you are a student at one of about 30 universities, you can get the “Ultimate” edition of Office 2007 (includes OneNote!)  for AUS$75 which is about 5% of what it costs to buy if you were to pay full price (which no…

New OneNote 2007 PowerToys

Dan Escapa is on a tear releasing a set of new PowerToys for OneNote 2007. What’s going on is that a whole bunch of PowerToys were written internally on the OneNote team and by some of our “friends” inside the company over the last six months. As the 2007 has now shipped (and therefore the…

OneNote 2007 now available at retail

Yes, the final code of OneNote 2007 is now available for purchase in an actual box (with a curvy corner no less and fancy pull out center: here are some samples if you haven’t been down to a store yet). Of course OneNote is available along with Office 2007 and Windows Vista today. This is hardly…
