A lot has changed in the last decade since I started using the computer. Back in 1998 (if I could recall correctly) my parents decided to purchase a desktop computer – our very first one.
In fact, it was a Windows 95. This sure brings back loads of good ol’ memories!
The first ever computer game that got me addicted was Chip. It was one of the default Microsoft games.
Despite its simplicity, it was enjoyable to collect colourful keys and chips nonetheless. After all, there weren’t much high-tech games back then.
A decade has then passed, and we’re in a much technological advanced era. Instant messengers have overtaken the conventional face-to-face conversations.
Chat rooms such as mIRC are long gone due to the social networking sites all over the Internet.
Know what, I used to chat on mIRC when I was young. Back then, I get to pretend to be older and even virtually changed my gender just by typing “F” when introducing myself.
That was really fun. Hehe. But of course, I don’t do that anymore these days. Seriously!
And with the computer, our life has definitely changed drastically. Remember the life before such technology?
Neither do I.
Anyway, ever since I started working for my current company a couple of months ago, I’ve been a Windows 7 user.
By comparing the Windows 7 with the previous Windows editions, there are various reasons to get it – faster speed, better wireless networking and smarter search. It’s cool.
Being a visually-inclined person, I particularly like the new taskbar with bigger button and cool thumbnail previews.
Can have sneak peek like that.
Besides, the Microsoft Office has always been a significant tool to get work done. Other than working with clients, dealing with Words, Excel, PowerPoint, Project and Visio is part of my work routine.
You know what, the Office 2010 allows cool features like co-authoring a single document and broadcasting slideshow presentations over the Internet. Hence, it’s even easier to work with colleagues and clients anywhere, anytime!
Well recently, Microsoft has launched a campaign called the “It’s a Great Time to be a Family” and the idea is universal, truly global and blends well with our Malaysian culture as we all love to interact.
The fact is, Windows 7, Office and Windows Phone bring people together through real and relatable moments. They are technologies that help bring convenience in our life by allowing us to connect and communicate with our friends and family.
Ultimately with it, I get connected to people easily. It’s always just a click or tap away!
So yeah, for more Microsoft PC details and upcoming promotion, check out http://www.microsoft.com/en-my/family.
Oh by the way, if you’ve made a purchase of Windows 7 or Office 2010 recently, you should participate in the Great Family Time Contest which runs from 15 October 2011 until 15 January 2012, where you stand a chance to win a Nissan Grand Livina and much more!
All you do next is to count the number of family members in this picture…
How many did you count? I think I got 59 people if my eye sight doesn’t fail me. *rubs strained eyes*
Anyway, speaking of Microsoft Office, one thing I surely miss from all those years of using Words has got to be the super friendly and appear-out-of-nowhere Paperclip, Clippy.
If Clippy is still around and is customized for blogging purposes, writing a blog entry would have certainly been so much easier right?
Clippy, write me an awesome post! Now!
