Shortly after upgrading to Microsoft Office 2007 I ran across this nice FREE add-on from Microsoft which allows you to save your documents in the Adobe PDF or Microsoft XPS format using all eight Microsoft Office 2007 applications. I use the feature almost daily so I’m sure all you groovyReaders will appreciate the find! [...]
Firefox 4′s final version has been released today, and we’re already testing it out. The new version arrived right on time and according to schedule. By now it has already reached over 2.5 million downloads and updates. A lot sure has changed since version 3.6. If you’ve used the release candidate version, this shouldn’t be [...]
Back in October we announced the release of Microsoft Office 2011 for the MAC and today I have a quick tip for the Excel 2011 ultra-geek groovyReaders out there.

Like most Gen-Y’ers, I refuse to learn anything unless you present it to me in the form of a game and/or allow me to brag about my mad skillz on my Facebook wall. For example, Guitar Hero’s initiative to teach frat boys how to push buttons in time with Van Halen songs was a smashing [...]
Today Microsoft quietly released an Add-in that allows you to use Word 2010 or Word 2007 as the ultimate Wiki WYSIWYG Editor and it lets you easily convert word documents into Media Wiki format or Wiki style markup. The plugin is a free download from Microsoft Download and installs quickly and easily. I have a [...]
Yesterday Microsoft launched the Federated Search Connector Gallery and they started it out with a decent list of connectors. Although Microsoft is targeting the enterprise with their Enterprise Search connectors, anyone with Windows 7 can use them to embed the search connectors into Windows Explorer for 1 stop searching!

Just a few days ago Microsoft released their new Junk E-mail Reporting Add-in for Microsoft Outlook 2003, 2007 and 2010 32-bit and 64-bit.
