…The Internet is Down created Excel Hell?

Excel Hell

Nine months after creating the internet sensation, Sales Guy vs. Web Dude, The Website is Down is back, and they’ve taken on a new task: Excel.

In Excel Hell, Chip takes us on a wild ride into the life of a master salesman, and we see how many sales he can make in a single video. (One? Maybe?)

…You should pretend to work?

This fantastic ad for Microsoft Office for Mac is called Pretending to Work, and it was animated entirely within Microsoft Office.

Now we’ve seen movies made inside of Excel before, but the level of detail that this ad goes into is impressive, and with PowerPoint stop motions, folder art, image slide shows, Excel movies and more, it’s a tour de force with what you can accomplish using Microsoft Office for Mac and a lot of time.

Just make sure to not-getting-caught-feng-shui your desk if you’re going to watch this at work…

…AC/DC rocks your Excel spreadsheets?

ACDC Excel

Phil Clandillon and Steve Milbourne have created what they call “the world’s first music video in Excel format” for AC/DC’s Rock N Roll Train.

By creating the entire video in Excel, the two are able to bypass and subvert even the most restrictive of corporate firewalls, allowing you to rock out any time you want.

If you’d like to download the original (Windows only) Excel file, it’s available at the AC/DC Rocks site, or you can view it in YouTube format here:

…The Facebook Page is growing?

Facebook

Last week I announced the launch of the DidntYouHear.com Facebook Page, and since then, 25 people have already signed up to be fans, which is fantastic, so a big thanks to everyone who joined!

I also announced that I would be picking out one fan at random and giving them a $10 Amazon Gift Card, so thanks to the magic of Excel’s =rand() function, Alice Chang has been selected. Congratulations!

If you haven’t already done so, then check out the Facebook Page and click “Become a Fan”. I’ll be doing exclusive content and contests there just for the Facebook Fans, as well as adding games and more to interact with on the page, so it should be fun.

See you there!

…iPaper is a PDF killer?

iPaper

Apparently the web world is fed up with PDFs, because alternatives are popping up left and right.

The latest entry into this world is iPaper, which aims to entirely replace the PDF.

The basic idea is that, like a YouTube video, iPaper documents can be embedded into any existing web page through a Flash widget, and can display PDF, Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and other document formats without the need for separate readers.

Features include viewing documents without downloading any additional software, monetizing documents with integrated advertisements, social aspects with a built in share functionality, enhanced security, and easy integration.

Edit: Box.net, a free online storage and file sharing site, is one of the first sites to embrace the iPaper technology. You can now view any of your PDF, Word, Excel, or Power Point documents that you have stored on Box.net using iPaper.
