Corel Home Office

We all love Microsoft Office for its easy user interface and the way it looks. Now if all the things that you have in MS Office, if you get in some other suite and that too in affordable price, I am sure you will stick to it. Corel  Home Office is a sleek new office suite for word processing, spreadsheets and presentation projects. Designed for the work you do at home, it features a fresh and simple interface with tabbed toolbars for quick navigation. Corel Home Office is easy to learn and use, compatible with Microsoft Office, and available at a fraction of the price of other leading office software.

Corel

Here are some of its main features :

  • Write high-quality letters, résumés, reports and term papers
  • Create spreadsheets, charts and graphs, and balance budgets
  • Make slideshows with photos and charts
  • Open, edit and save Microsoft Office files to easily share work with others
  • Create PDF documents from any application
  • Switch languages at the click of a button

 

Inspite of all these usage, it still lacks in some features. The files which you have created in MS Office, may not open in Corel.

Yahoo Gets a Makeover

The all new homepage for Yahoo is set to recapture the loss of its popularity by some of the giants of social networking like Facebook, Myspace and Twitter. The new homepage has all the features that will make you stick to it and stay to it so much that you will make the new YAHOO your homepage.

New Yahoo

Here is the list of features that I like the most :

  • Separate tab for all of my favorite sites.
  • Facebook on a separate tab
  • easily configurable my favorites bar
    • All the tabs like horoscope, movies, autos just at the pointer of the mouse

It is still in Beta phase so you can expect some further improvements also. Although the site has gone through enormous changes the retooled page will be introduced in the United Kingdom, India and France later this week. It will roll out to the rest of the world during the next year, with the option to retain the old design starting to phase out this fall.

Get more productive by taking voice notes

I am addicted to web surfing, and its often that I need to take some notes. So, till now I generally used Google Notebook or Vista Sidebar gadget for taking my online notes. But now I’ve came to know another in built feature of Windows Vista, which is known as Sticky Notes. This application allows taking notes using a Tablet PC or Digital Pen. This application is also having a feature of voice recording. From this application, I got an idea of taking voice notes.You can also check out another previously mentioned in built feature of Windows Vista Performance and Reliability.

So, now to make my life more productive I started using Windows Recorder to take important notes, Online or Offline. Now, when I switch on my Dell Studio 15 laptop, Sound Recorder is set to auto start, when windows boots up. It is having an Integrated Webcam and Microphone Array, which makes it easier to take voice notes. You can open sound recorder by clicking on start menu and typing Sound Recorder.Recoder

You can save your voice notes in either wma or wav format. I prefer you to save in wma format as, this will require less space for same duration of recording.

Facebook Providing Usernames

facebook From Saturday, June 13th, you will be getting a unique usernames just like other sites such as LinkedIn. This will help others to find you easily on Google or other search engines. Earlier the profile is identified by the unique number that it has at the end of the url of the pages you visit. The URL was just a randomly assigned number like "id=592952074." That soon will change. When your friends, family members or co-workers visit your profile or Pages on Facebook, they will be able to enter your username as part of the URL in their browser. This way people will have an easy-to-remember way to find you.facebook username

 

 

Facebook usernames will be available in basic text forms, and you can only choose a single username for your profile and for each of the Pages that you administer. Your username must be at least five characters in length and only include alphanumeric characters (A-Z, 0-9), or a period or full stop ("."). While usernames are currently available only for Romanized text, we’re looking at how we might support non-Romanized characters in the future.
Think carefully about the username you choose. Once it’s been selected, you won’t be able to change or transfer it. If you signed up for a Facebook Page after May 31 or a user profile after today at 3 p.m. EDT, you may not be able to sign up for a username immediately because of steps we’ve taken to prevent abuse or "squatting" on names.
