OneNote Overview

This is why OneNote is awesome

Well I know I normally blog more about Microsoft Datacenter and Cloud stuff especially Hyper-V and System Center, but I am a huge fan of Microsoft’s Office Suite. I really live in Outlook and Microsoft OneNote. I organize my private life, my work and university stuff in OneNote. I get often ask by customers or friends how I work and how I get things done. In this case I always show them OneNote, which is maybe one of the best keep secrets inside Microsoft. This post shows you why OneNote is awesome and shows you some of the hidden features you didn’t know about.

If you have more hidden features leave a comment on the post.

OneNote Dock to Desktop

With the Dock to Desktop feature you can keep your notes visible by anchoring an OneNote window to the side of your desktop. Your notes will stay on top of your desktop while you are working in other programs.

Linked Note taking

 

OneNote Linked Note Talking

While you are using the Dock to Desktop mode you can enable Linked Note Taking. This will automatically create a link to the page or office document you have open while you have taken note. This is perfect, while I was write a whitepaper for university and I had to do a lot of research I used this feature. While I was write the document I had to mention the sources as foot notes and sometimes it’s hard to find the source of something you have found on the internet. With linked notes I only had to check my nodes and all the sources and references were linked.

 Visio Integration

OneNote Visio Integration

A lot of other Microsoft products to integrate into OneNote. One of them is Visio, if you have Visio installed on our computer you can add an existing Visio diagram to you notes. You can also directly create a new Visio diagram from OneNote and add it to your notes.

My first year with Windows Phone

Exactly one year ago I got my first Windows Phone. Since then a lot has change and Windows Phone has really improved.

After the first update, called NoDo, I could leave my iPhone 4 behind and change to the HTC 7 Trophy. Of course the hardware was nowhere near the iPhone 4 but the Windows Phone OS was just great. Now one year later there is a lot of good Windows Phone hardware out there and the Windows Phone OS has improved with Mango.

I am sure there will be a lot more great Windows Phone stuff in the future.

New Awesome HP Notebooks (Elitebooks and ProBooks)

HP Elitebook w-series

After some years with my Apple MacBook Pro its time for a new notebook. Now since my work now is really in the Microsoft field, it does not really make sence to buy a MacBook Pro again. So first I check out the new Dell Latitude E-Series, and now HP released the new Elitebook Workstations.

Now I don’t really like the new HP Elitebook p-series, but I really like the black desgin of the ProBook or the new gunmetal black of the Elitebook w-series.

What is important for me:

  • Screen resolution – 1600 x 900 or even 1920 x 1200
  • battery – life 6 hours or more
  • Size 14 inch or 15 inch
  • cool desgin ;-)
  • docking station
  • multiple monitor support

Dell Latitude E6520, E6420 & XT3

Dell Latitude E6520I am thinking about buying a new notebook with Intels new processor generation Sandy Bridge. As I work more and more with Windows systems and also do presentations about our Microsoft Solutions, a MacBook Pro isn’t really a option. I also had a look at  the new HP EliteBooks but I don’t really like the new desgin.

So I checked what Dell has to offer and voila. I really like the desgin of the new Dell Latitude E-Series.
