    Comments Off on Vectorform’s Toolbox For Windows 8 Is Great For Multi-Tasking
    February 11, 2021 /  Computer Technology, Software

    Based in Royal Oak, Michigan,Vectorform invents digital products and experiences with a focus on innovative mobile and emerging technology solutions. Vectorform partners with premier global brands including Microsoft MSFT +0.72%, Disney, Coca Cola, and Volkswagen to create the next iconic experience. Vectorform was founded in 1999 and now has over 100 employees across the globe with additional studios in Seattle, New York, Munich and Hyderabad.

    Aside from designing experiences for clients, their elite team of artists, engineers, entrepreneurs and technologists has also developed a number of its own applications that have proven very successful.

     

    “Vectorform has evolved from a digital agency to part think tank, part lab, and part studio,” stated Vectorform Director of Product Vision, Kevin Foreman.

    One of Vectorform’s most popular applications is the ever-evolving Toolbox for Windows 8.  The free application has recorded over 850,000 downloads and is currently the number 1 productivity app available on the Windows Store. With Toolbox you can view and interact with up to six different tools at once, giving you the power and flexibility to customize your workspace for maximum productivity.

    There are currently 12 tools available within Toolbox, including a Facebook FB -1.02% application, voice notes, real-time currency converter, web browser, and a Twitter client that was added just this past May. The Twitter application refreshes in real time so that you can view details of content without having to leave the timeline.

    When asked why Vectorform was primarily focused on developing apps for the Windows 8 app store, Foreman said “Toolbox specifically was focused on Windows 8, and Toolbox may be ported to additional operating systems.  As a company, we’re focused on mobile and emerging technologies.  We’re platform agnostic.”

    Foreman told me that they were one of the companies that had the Microsoft Surface table product a few years ago.  They created a 360-degree user interface where music chips could be dragged around and they used this application create the Vectorform Surface DJ.

    Another major project for Vectorform involved the 2008 election where President Barack Obama faced off against John McCain.  Vectorform worked with MSNBC to create virtual charts of aggregated electoral votes used on air by anchor Chuck Todd.

    Vectorform was able to take this campaign from concept to final product in 3 weeks.  Vectorform has a passion for creating great products and this is what keeps the company growing.

  • Microsoft still has ‘a way to go’ in determining its market for Windows 8, says Network Rail

    Comments Off on Microsoft still has ‘a way to go’ in determining its market for Windows 8, says Network Rail
    February 7, 2021 /  Computer Technology, Software

    Microsoft has “a bit of a way to go” in determining which market it is targeting for Windows 8, even though the operating system has now been on the market for over a year, Network Rail’s head of information systems strategy Simon Goodman has told Computing.

    Goodman praised Microsoft’s early entries into hybrid-led technology via Windows 8, saying there was definitely “a need” for hybrid notebook-tablets, and that this was something Network Rail had “explored internally”.

    “We’ve already looked at Surface-based devices,” confirmed Goodman.

    “It gives you a combination of nice tablet looks and feel, a lightweight device, but it’s got a bit of grunt behind it, so if you need to do something a little bit more hefty from an applications perspective, you’ve got the tools and capabilities to do that,” he said.

    But Goodman described the move from Windows 7 to 8, with its added Modern apps interface, as “a huge jump” for Microsoft, which could affect ease of adoption for some of Network Rail’s workers.

    “If you’re a traditional desktop user, it’s quite difficult to get to the look and feel of how that works, and how to navigate around it,” said Goodman.

    But Goodman maintained that, from a tablet perspective, “it’s not that hard to work out where you go, and everything else”.

    However, Goodman is going to hold fire before rolling out any Windows 8 systems en masse at Network Rail.

    “For me, it’s something we will look to embrace where it makes sense to do so, but I still think Microsoft has got a bit of a way to go yet to determine exactly what market it wants to play into,” said Goodman.

    Look out for the full-length video interview with Network Rail’s Simon Goodman on Computing very soon.
