Hey, Do you know Ms. Dewey? No??? Okay I will introduce her. It is a search engine owned by Microsoft. The Ms. Dewey website is an Adobe Flash-based experimental interface for Windows Live Search. Ms. Dewey is a fully animated search assistant who audibly comments on searched keywords in her own style and makes random actions when idle.The role of the Ms. Dewey character is played by the famous American actruss Janina Gavankar. You need atleast medium speed internet connection to catch her.

MSOffice 2007’s Anti-piracy approach

In the new MSOffice 2007 microsoft is added a feature called Reduced Functionality Mode to stop piracy. This reduced Functionality mode is triggered whenever Office 2007 fails activation. In reduced-functionality mode, programs function similarly to viewers. When a program runs in reduced-functionality mode, many commands are unavailable or dimmed. Therefore, you cannot access those functionalities. Some of the limitations of reduced-functionality mode include the following:

  • You cannot create new documents.
  • You can view existing documents. However, you cannot edit them.
  • You can print documents. However, you cannot save them.

Most of them will be the new trends of Interface design. For example the concept of “Contextual Tabs”. This is called as the heart of the new user interface….

  • The Ribbon

The traditional menus and toolbars have been replaced by the Ribbon — a new device that presents commands organized into a set of tabs.The tabs on the Ribbon display the commands that are most relevant for each of the task areas in the applications.

  • Contextual Tabs

The Contextual Tabs contain all the features you need for working with the selected object.The way it works is this: The default tabs for the application contain only the commands that are not object-specific. It turns out that this drastically simplifies the functionality you have to look through because so much of Word, for example, only works when you have a Table or a Chart or a Picture or a Header or a Drawing or a Text Box selected.

  • Galleries

Galleries are the other huge attraction of the redesigned applications. Galleries provide users with a set of clear results to choose from when working on their document, spreadsheet, presentation, or Access database.
