The Name of Microsoft Office is Changing After More Than 30 Years

Published

on

The name of Microsoft Office will change starting next month, more than three decades after its introduction.

Name change time

The software package was first introduced by Bill Gates in 1988. It has seen several revisions since then, most notably the loss of the useful/inconvenient sidekick Clippy (which was an outrage, in my opinion).

And now, according to Microsoft, it appears that the time has come for a redesign with a new name, new symbol, and “new appearance.”

Office.com, the Office mobile app, and the Office app for Windows will soon change to become the Microsoft 365 app, with a new icon, a new look, and even more features, the company’s website explains.

“Over the last couple of years, Microsoft 365 has evolved into our flagship productivity suite, so we are creating an experience to help you get the most out of Microsoft 365.”

The new modifications will be implemented starting next month, with the rebranding of Office.com coming first, then the Office apps for Windows and mobile in January of 2019.

There won’t be any changes to the names of the individual programs, such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.

Customers have also been told by Microsoft that their accounts won’t be affected by the move, and that the icon and name will automatically change as soon as the app is updated.

The software business has also stated that the Microsoft Office brand won’t disappear overnight because it will still be possible to acquire its Office bundle once through the Office 2021 and Office LTSC plans for the time being.

The news of the rebranding follows Microsoft’s decision to permanently discontinue Internet Explorer after nearly 30 years of service.

The once-popular web browser made its debut in the middle of the 1990s as a component of a Windows 95 add-on package.

It was also the most widely used browser for a number of years; in fact, in 2003, 95 per cent of online users used it to access the internet.

But technology advances quickly, and a few short years later it had significantly lagged behind more modern, intelligent, and quick browsers.

Before Microsoft decided to replace it with Edge in 2015, it received one final upgrade in 2013.

But it wasn’t until June of this year that it was totally phased out, much like Clippy and Power Pup.

Black Adam to Lose a Lot After Its Release

Published

on

Although Dwayne Johnson’s blockbuster Black Adam may have challenged the DCEU’s system of power, it failed to perform well at the box office. According to Variety, the most recent DC blockbuster has only made $387 million globally since it opened in theaters on October 21.

News by the Numbers

Black Adam could lose between $50 and $100 million at the box office due to a $195 million production cost, an estimated $80 to $100 million marketing expense, and the fact that movie theaters keep about half the ticket sale revenues.

Still Making It

Variety said that Black Adam will eventually break even at $600 million, while Warner Bros. sources claim that the real figure is $425 million. Black Adam had a strong opening weekend, grossing $140 million worldwide. Even though the movie’s second weekend experienced a significant 59% fall, it managed to maintain its box office dominance.

Not only Black Adam has recently had trouble earning money at the box office. Strange World, a significant animated film from Disney, had a poor $12 million opening weekend and then experienced a 60% decrease to $4.9 million. Not the best times for these movies, but hopefully they would do better later on.

To Play “Elden Ring” with Him for 40 Hours, a Gamer Pays a Cam Girl $20,000

Published

The video game Elden Ring is fantastic and offers a unique single-player experience, but it’s also a riot when played with others.

More fun with Friends

The new open-world adventure from FromSoftware is fairly similar to its predecessors in that you can call in friends (or complete strangers) to explore and aid you against some of the more difficult bosses.

If you’re feeling extremely vicious, you can even invade the worlds of other gamers and bring them untold suffering.

However, not everyone has companions who are prepared to invest the time necessary to truly master a game like Elden Ring. What should a daring explorer do in such a circumstance? Apparently, you can pay a cam girl $20,000 for a 40-hour encounter.

Using the website CamSoda, 31-year-old Chris from New Jersey claims to have paid adult model Charley Hart $20,160 (or roughly £15,200) to play Elden Ring with him for one extended session.

According to Chris, “I typically play campaigns by myself in my boxer briefs and overdose on carbs while consuming energy drinks.” We became fairly close and connected on a deeper level, so it was lovely to have Charley traveling with me through The Lands Between.

I truly loved her company, and I hope to stream with her again when the next big game is released, he continued.

Chris claims that Charley and he completed the game in 40 hours. Even though it’s not impossible, it’s still quite an accomplishment. Chris was reportedly turned off by it and never wanted to do anything similar again.

It was intense, he acknowledged. “I was hellbent on finishing the game, but if I ever play a full campaign, I’m going to split it up next time.”

According to Charley, some cam ladies reported an increase in requests to game during the pandemic, with some customers perhaps simply preferring the firm under lockdown.

“I’ve joined clients for longer periods of time while they game, prepare dinner, eat dinner, etc. It’s like long-form camming,” she added. “I’m not simply a cam girl who acts for, say, 7 minutes.”

“I didn’t fully realize how long 40 consecutive hours is. It takes a lot of stamina, in more ways than one. But Chris and I really hit it off at the beginning, and it was fun,” the participant said.

This Latest Netflix Movie Manages to Grab a Perfect Score on Rotten Tomatoes

Published

on

Rotten Tomatoes gave Netflix’s most recent creature movie a perfect score, praising it for its moralistic narrative, entertaining special effects, and inventive takes on Swedish mythology.

An Interesting Plot

The protagonist of the tale is the paleontologist Nora Tidemman, who grew up hearing tales from Swedish mythology from her father. Nora joins forces with an academic, a soldier, and a government advisor to investigate a string of fatalities on a hillside and learn what is going on in Dovre. The mountain then begins to move, and the troll that lives there wreaks havoc on the people who are endangering its home.

Great Results

Troll has received numerous comparisons to Godzilla in reviews, and it formerly had a perfect critic score on Rotten Tomatoes. The score has since dropped to 85%, but that’s still a pretty remarkable performance for a movie in 2022, knowing that there are a lot of good movies out there.
