Microsoft Office Labs

Microsoft Office Labs

Check out the space of Microsoft Office Labs. These guys are putting up some pretty cool (IMO) stuff up there. Like multi touch without touching. For me it is Email Prioritizer. I am currently downloading it; will post the feedback again once I try it out.

Update: I just completed installing Email Prioritizer and pptPlex. pptPlex claims to add the power of zooming in and out during the presentation. Well, it adds that capability to power point but makes it unusable and unstable. On my machine that I can call is decently powered was rendered nonworking while trying out the “cool” features of pptPlex. Finally it made power point to crash. :(

On other hand Email Prioritizer seems to be working to some extent. It is dependent on Office 2007 Primary Interop Assemblies. I had to download that as a separate installer. Wonder why Office Labs guys don’t bundle it in one MSI? It has features where you can give star rating to your emails. It adds several filters that make it easy to retrieve certain email. But does it really work? At least not for me because for this software to be of any use, I need to be well organised at first. :)
