Re: Things have changed
The new features of one note are great. I think no other productivity app has some many features.  I have OneNote for the an android tablet and I really like it.  I'm sure students are really missing out by not using OneNote.  I think it should be taylored more for students.  I wonder how does Onenote compare with other note taken applications.  With such new features it seems Microsoft are ahead of the rest.

post it
The silliness of wearables makes me hope that 3M comes out with a Post-It pad size that matches smartwatch screens. That way I can put Post-Its on my smartwatch as reminders and notifications.

Re: Hello Google?
Arguably, if Gates and Ballmer had done more of this sort of thing instead of pretending Android and iOS didn't exist, Windows might not now be a distant No. 3 in the phone market.

It's actually a shame their smartphones aren't selling. The Lumias are good phones and deserve more than 4% or 5% market share. This two-horse race in mobile is getting boring.

That's true, though I think the new Office Lens functionality seems pretty useful. If they keep producing apps like that (and keeping them cross-platform), they can make inroads in mobile productivity apps, even if their smartphones aren't selling.

Things have changed
I also just read that Microsoft has released a bluetooth keyboard designed for iPads and Android tablets. I assume the company's hoping more people will use Office on iOS and Android if they have a great keyboard. MS is really on the sidelines now, at least in mobile.

Hello Google?
Microsoft has an app that you launch by saying "OK Google"? Really? What's next, an iOS app that you launch by saying "Hello Apple"? Gates and Ballmer must be going insane.
