INSEAD – Business School For The World

January 31, 2008

Wondering whats all dis abt ?? So let me just begin abt INSEAD ..

Was just surfing through the WWW thinking abt what to do after 2 or 3 yrs of my job with TCS .. Just came through this 50 yr old institute located in France and Singapore .. In – see – ad (as it is phonetically pronounced ) was ranked as 1 of the top B schools around the world ..

I thought whats so special about INSEAD .. So just gave a search in Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia .. And I was dumb struck with what i found ..

For eg : INSEAD’s motto is “The Business School for the World” which is something very new and i heard this for the 1st time ..

Another thing that made my jaws drop was its Alumni .. I mean it was unbelievable that most of today’s CEO’s and a number of Chairman’s were Alumna’s of INSEAD .. Look @ the following names

Peter Job, Former CEO, Reuters
Simon J Critchell, CEO, Dunhill
Lindsay Owen-Jones, Chairman, L’Oreal
Michael van Swaaij, CEO, Skype
Mike Salmi, President, MTV
Michael Obermayer, Managing Director, World Economic Forum
Birger Steen, CEO, Microsoft Russia
Heinz-Joachim Neubürger, Managing Director, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co
Johannes Feldmayer, Member Managing Board, Siemens AG
B Muthuraman, Managing Director, Tata Steel
Barbara Kux, Chief Procurement Officer, Phillips
Charles Watson, President, Shell EMEA and South Asia

Most of us wouldn’t know a majority of the above people ( tat includes me too ), but almost all of us would surely be knowing the power houses that these people belong to .. I mean Tata , MS , Philips n Siemens , L’Oreal , Reuters …. It goes on n on n on …. These are just a few names in that list ..

So if u have that CEO or the chair material in u , go join INSEAD although it might be a little heavy on ur pockets, after seeing the names in the list, u might be tempted to read more abt tat school ..

Exclusive: Windows Mobile 7 To Focus On Touch and Motion Gestures !!

January 28, 2008

MS is currently developing Windows Mobile 7, the first revolutionary change to its mobile device operating system. Recently, I was given a document by a source inside Microsoft that details the touch and gesture plans for Mobile 7. This document is used to explain the plans for Mobile 7, and contains well over a hundred pages of designs, ideas, and changes to the way we interact with our mobile devices.

WHAT’S NEW

Windows Mobile 7 will use touch gestures, similar to how the iPhone does. You will be able to flick through lists, pan, swipe sideway, draw on the screen. A lot of emphasis has been put on making navigation easier and doing away with scrollbars, including a new scroll handle that allows for multiple ways of finding items extremely fast.

Windows Mobile 7 will use motion gestures, something the iPhone does not. It will not use an intricate and complicated series of gyroscopes and accelerometers. Instead, it will use the camera on the phone to detect motions and create appropriate actions. You will be able to shake, twist and otherwise manipulate the phone and get things done. The phone will be able to perform actions when placed face down on a surface, and it will know when it is in your pocket or bag.

The web browser will incorporate gestures for back and forward actions. Here’s an image:

Notice the differences in Internet Explorer. The interface is simpler and much nicer, with just an address bar and go button, the web page is a desktop version, just like on the iPhone, and the browser has tabbed browsing, used by gesturing through a series of graphical thumbnails. This is very impressive.

Touch Scrolling/Flicking

Users will be able to flick their way through lists and swipe sideways for certain actions and pivoting views. When scrolling through lists, letters are shown to indicate as the user makes his way through the alphabet, as well as the addition of a scroll bar. There will be a visual bump when reaching the end of a list.

Besides flicking up and down, the user will be able to pivot sideways between different hotlists. The user can swipe to pivot between each, tap a selection in the pivot wheel, or hit an arrow to launch a pivot selector for all available pivots.

An example of pivoting in the Recent Programs menu:

Windows Mobile 7 will ship in 2009, according to the document. This makes sense with the Mobile 6.1 point release that is coming around now. Hopefully, Bill Gates will announce Windows Mobile 7 at the CES , but if not, you now have advance notice of what is coming next year. Microsoft clearly has a lot planned to make Windows Mobile 7 the revolution it needs to be to compete with Apple, and Mobile 7 is going to bring some cool and excitement to Microsoft’s smart phones.

MS Office — No Accidental Replacement Saves !!!

January 28, 2008

Do you have an MS Word, Excel or PowerPoint file you frequently open, make changes to and then save under a new name? Is it important for you not to lose the original information? How many times have you accidentally overwritten the original information with the new file?

I bet the answer to that is something along the lines of, “Way too many to remember!” I’d also bet those experiences are better left forgotten, as they can be very frustrating moments.

Would you like a quick and fool proof method of using that file, without ever losing the original information?

I’m sure I heard a few “Yes!” answers out there, so let’s take a look!

Begin just like any other day: File menu, Open choice (or, for those of you with Office 2007, it’s the Office Button, Open choice).

In the Open window, navigate to find your file, as usual, but wait just one moment before you hit the Open button.

Have you ever noticed that the Open button has a down arrow at the end of it?

open-button-arrow.gif

Yep, that’s right. The arrow indicates a menu of choices for that button. Go ahead and click that down arrow

open-as-copy.gif

See the “Open as Copy” choice? Choose that.

Your program will then open a copy of the document (not the document itself), leaving the original version safe and sound!

No more information accidentally sent into computer oblivion. Yes!

The other day, I heard something about IE 7.0 now being required for every computer user. Is that true ?? Can Microsoft really do that ??

January 28, 2008

If you’re an avid Internet Explorer user, you have probably already heard about this, but for those of you who haven’t, I’m here to clear up all the confusion. All of this really isn’t as bad as you think, so just hang tight. Everything’s going to be okay. So, without further ado, let’s get started!

MS announced last week that with its February 12, 2008 Windows updates, an upgrade for Internet Explorer 7 will be included. And yes, that’s whether you like it or not. So, basically, if you’ve been putting off the upgrade, you will soon be forced to install the new version of the IE Web browser. MS is going to be pushing this on just about everyone (businesses included) who has not yet installed IE 7. Now, I know that doesn’t seem quite fair.

When the update comes through to your computer on February 12, 2008, it will be marked as an Update Rollup package. If your computer is set to approve Rollup packages, the update from IE 6 to IE 7 will automatically be installed for you.

Now, if you turn your automatic updates off, you still need to get them for the month of February, so you will need to do it manually. And you can do that right from this Web site. There you can pick and choose what you want to install and that way, you can skip past the one for Internet Explorer 7. Note: Once the February updates are over, don’t forget to turn your automatic updates back on. Otherwise, you might miss out on some really important stuff later on. Also, keep in mind that this update does not pertain to Windows Vista, because IE 7 already automatically comes with that operating system.
