Hold Your Horses: Microsoft Office Web Access Not Here Yet

first_imgThis morning, Microsoft announced the technical preview to Office 2010 to much fanfare. The most prominently touted aspect has been the Web access to the suite, which has been seen as Microsoft’s answer to the way Google, Zoho and others have dominated the SaaS market for office suites thus far. But what they didn’t tell you is that the browser-based version of Office 2010 will not be part of this technical preview, which will have its own release for which no date has been set. Microsoft’s own press release on the technical preview of Office 2010 focuses mostly on the Web access, which they describe as “lightweight” and “collaborative.” Microsoft made fairly clear that the technical preview is not a beta, and access is extremely limited. However, upon further probes by the likes of Om Malik and others, it turns out that only the desktop versions of Office 2010 are a part of the technical preview. Microsoft PR replied to Malik with this statement, confirming that Web Office will have a separate technical preview:Web applications are included in the technical preview milestone but not part of the technical preview program. They will have a separate technical preview later this summer.

Sreesanths wife Bhuvaneswari reacts on Supreme Courts order to set aside BCCIs

first_imgFans of S Sreesanth are all in a state of ecstasy after Supreme Court ordered the BCCI to cancel the life ban of Sreesanth for his alleged involvement in the match-fixing scandal. The Supreme Court also asked the cricket board to reconsider Sreesanth’s punishment within the next three months. It should be also noted that the court rejected Sreesanth’s request that he should not be punished by any means, as he was acquitted in the spot-fixing case.In the wake of these new developments, Bhuvaneswari, Sreesanth’s wife said that the cricketer has finally got justice. In a recent interaction with media, Bhuvaneswari revealed that she is quite happy about the fact that the honourable Supreme Court has revoked the life ban of her husband.”Thank you so much for praying. I am very happy with the Supreme Court decision. The ban has been revoked. Finally, he has got justice. I now really hope that BCCI too will do justice to him. Supreme Court had given three months time to decide the quantum of the punishment. So I hope they do the justice, and you all again pray for us,” said Bhuvaneswari during the talk.Bhuvaneswari also revealed that Sreesanth is regularly practising to make a strong comeback to the cricket field. She added that the cricketer was injured on his forehead around three months back while practising.After Supreme Court revoked the life ban, Sreesanth admitted that he is already aged 36, and he has only four or five years remaining in International cricket. However, Sreesanth admitted that it is pretty difficult to get into the Kerala cricket team due to heavy competition. He added that he will play cricket one day or the other, and made it clear that he has been vigorously practising for the past six months. During the talk, Sreesanth also revealed that he will try to play the Scottish League in the near future.last_img read more

American firm Herman Miller to make designer chairs in Karnataka plant

first_imgUS-based global office furniture major Herman Miller on Wednesday opened its hi-tech plant at Bidadi on the city’s outskirts to make designer chairs in India for the country’s growing domestic market.”As India is one of our fastest growing markets in Asia, we have set up a production facility at Bidadi to make designer products like chairs to our customers faster,” Herman Miller Asia Pacific vice-president Jeremy Hocking told reporters here.Bidadi is about 40km from Bengaluru on the state highway towards Mysuru.The Michigan-headquartered $2.2-billion global firm operates in over 100 countries worldwide, with production facilities in the US, Britain, China and Italy and sells its products and services through a global dealer network.”We have chosen Bidadi for the plant as it’s strategically located to reach target markets in Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Mumbai and Pune, besides Sri Lanka for exports, as proximity reduces product lead-time,” Hocking said on the occasion, but declined to mention how much the company had invested in the facility.The company’s India facility is the third in the region (Asia Pacific) with other two being at Ningbo and Dong-guan in China.”We have started production in August and adopted a lean manufacturing system to reduce lead time and improve reliability to ensure same quality as elsewhere,” the company’s international operations vice-president Richard Scott pointed out.The company plans to ramp up its production capacity and manpower to 200 people by March.Interestingly, the nearly century-old company’s famous designers Charles and Ray Eames came calling to India in 1958 at the invitation of then prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru.”The interaction with Nehru led to the government setting up the National Institute of Design at Ahmedabad in Gujarat in 1961,” Hocking recalled.last_img read more
