5years! well congratulations guys, its good to see c9 has kept true to its original vision... and I have to say c9 has been a good bar to come to for general MS product discussion and errm vented feedback ...and its also good to see abit of that old
video style you did for the start of the vid(office drop in style)
I'm not satisified with any of MS sh/ty search features.. none of them.. they are all crap one way or another..! won't even say what i think of the hotmail webmail searching/ui.. somewhere along the line in your development/research of search features
there is a LARGE amount of FAIL! going on... probably doesn't help that you aim target these features for noobs and get noob research/feedback from it, cus they're obviously ain't giving you guys enough flak about how utterly crap these search features are, you
guys plainly suck at doing any of it right (bit like any of the teams workin on product with the word Explorer in the title!) specially in the UI design and allowing users to make more advanced queries quickly and easily, let alone filtering those results.
Aside from the last comment I made about these webslices, I really do think they should be have been built detached from the IE8 browser shell. A webslice is a great idea why confine it to only being usable while running IE8, and on a toolbar -so limiting.
If webslices could be more like a desktop gadget, if you could have a mini toolbar of just webslices that you could pin at the top of the screen(in between than usually empty titlebar area) etc... above other applications, then they'd be accessible all the
time, plus if you followed a link from a webslices etc it could be redirected to *cough* something other than the IE8 browser shell.
And I don't like the IE8 editor, go notepad++ redirect thx :/
I'm just gonna quote Minh, as I was literally gonna say the exact same things having just watched this first episode... plenty of buzz in the show, and I think its fine being shown on c9 -bit of variety.. only thing to add is that I think you need a
better studio background/setup... that red lighting on the curtain just looks similar to c9 weekly doesn't go with the whole green 'ping', black bg style imo
"No MTV-cut transitions, please. I think you two provide enough energy that you don't need that gimmick. Plus, those transitions are annoying!
Max, lose the sticks! I found myself dodging them for the safety of my eyes! And quit picking on Laura
Bottom line, more Ping!
Oh, BTW, "ping" means this in the following order: 1) IM 2) Text msg 3) e-mail"
"My favorite part of the interview is when Bill's bragging about how he reduced the number of bytes for the loader that Paul had built" lol..yeah that bit with Bill bringing that up made my chuckle too
