Office 2013, so bright it hurts my eyes

I recently made the move from Microsoft Office 2010 to Office 2013. Not much has changed in the new version, but one thing seems to annoy many people around the world including me. For some reason Microsoft has decided that everything in Office 2013 has to be very white and bright. Not sure why, but it seems to be some kind of trend that many other software companies like Google and Apple also apply to. White seems to be the new black for some reason!

Review of Seagate Backup Plus Portable USB 3.0 Drive

I just bought this little fancy USB 3.0 hard drive from Seagate and thought I would write a little review if you are considering buying a new Portable USB drive yourself. It is a nice little device easy to carry around with you and it weighs only 224 g. Unbelievable that 1 TB data can be stored on such a small light device. If you like me have been around IT for many years you can properly remember how it were back in the days when we was compressing files to fit them down to a bunch of floppy drives 🙂

My Google Analytics Traffic Report for Q3 2013

This report might a bit late (about a month), but I still hope that you find it interesting to see what brings traffic to my blog and maybe share your own traffic experiences with me in the comment section.

How to retrieve your Windows Product Key from Registry

Sometimes it can be convenient to be able to retrieve the Windows Product key from an active Windows installation e.g. if you have lost your Windows COA Sticker or if you can’t read the sticker anymore because it has been damage. I have developed a little tool in Visual Basic that can help you to retrieve your Windows Product key from the registry on an active Windows installation. With this tool you can find your Product Key before you reinstall your system to be sure that you are able to reactivate your Windows license. No installation is required and there is no catch like in form of toolbars or hidden ads. It is just a single .exe file that you can put on a USB stick and bring with you wherever you go.
