Office Lens update allows you to create Office doc...

Today’s post was written by Yu Ukai, program manager with Office Lens team in Japan.
I’ve often heard that “a picture is worth a thousand words,” and with today’s update to the Office Lens app on Windows Phone, such a translation is actually possible!
Office Lens is a great app for capturing whiteboard notes and paper documents and saving them in OneNote. Today it got even better with the ability to convert pictures of whiteboard notes and paper documents directly into Word documents and PowerPoint presentations—that you can edit, author and edit again.
Converting hardcopy documents into Word files
Take a picture of your hardcopy document using your phone and tap Save. A new Word document is automatically saved to your OneDrive, so you can access it on any device.

Getting Java client apps to run the way you want

I sometimes find the Java setup on my various Apple devices to be a mystery.

Recently, I was trying to get a Java applet to run in the same way on 2 iMacs and my MacBook Air. The applet is a simple vpn client from Juniper that lets me access a Citrix Desktop from any Mac that I can install the Citrix receiver client on so I can work on 'Company stuff' from a large screen iMac when I'm sat at home or from my MacBook when I'm on the road (it works fine over 3/4G).

The first thing is that you have to do some configuring of both Java and Safari to get the applet to run at all.

Once that was all done, I could log in from all my Macs, fire up the applet and establish a secure connection.

On two of the Macs, as soon as I fired up the Citrix app, the Java vpn window would show 'error'. The console showed a Java crash. But on the third Mac, everything worked fi ...

There is always space for improvement, no matter how long you’ve been in the business,” according to boxing champion Oscar De La Hoya, who won 10 world titles in six different weight divisions before retiring from the sport in 2009.

Siri: workaround Content Not Available error

A few weeks ago, a number of people started reporting having trouble with Siri. Phrases like 'Call my wife' or 'Tell my dad' stopped working. Siri knew who those people were but proclaimed 'Uh oh, I don't have a phone number for Jane Isa Doe." and beneath, there's a message: "Content Not Available."

I debugged this for over an hour and on a hunch, found a workaround that seems to work for nearly everyone who has tried it. All you have to do is delete the middle name of the person in *your* contact card where it is stored as a relationship.

I'm not sure why that works; it shouldn't, but it does. That's why I call it a workaround instead of a fix. I figure Apple is mucking around with Siri and perhaps caused a bug or some sort of corruption.

I'd be curious to know from MacOSXHints users whether they are experiencing this problem in the first place and if the workaround works for you, too. I'd also like to understand why this works and why the problem even e ...... | Read more »

Work harder, faster and more… Or not…

The difference between being judgmental and caring can be the benefit of the doubt. Living in Los Angeles I got to learn a lot about people not giving two craps whether you were alive or dead. Unless of course you started to smell the place up. Living in Minneapolis I got to learn a lot about people being a little too much in my business. But then I realized that it’s OK to be in my business, as it keeps apathy at bay and helps make me a better person, provided it doesn’t come with a bit too much judgement. When no one cares, what drives you to be better other than your own desire to be, well, better. Which can be fleeting.
But that’s at home. At work, I’ve started to realize the various stages of my own judgement and don’t always look back on my actions (or judgment of others more to the point) too kindly. There was a time when I worked more 100 hour weeks than 50 hour weeks. I’ve never actually worked less than 50. There was a time when I expected everyone to work the same... | Read more »
