W8 upgrade to deliver Mail, Calendar and People updates tomorrow

CNETAnalysis: Windows 8 and Windows RT updates for the Mail, Calendar and People apps are being released tomorrow, Microsoft announced today on its official Windows blog. “The features that are part of this update are designed to align with the different habits people have for staying on top of their email and schedule and staying organized,” wrote Microsoft Communications Manager Brandon LeBlanc. Specifically, the March 26 Windows upgrade for Mail will enable users to filter messages so that only unread emails show up, and to create and delete folders directly within the app. For even more Mail organization, it’ll also be possible to select all items within a folder and either move or delete them in one fell swoop. Composing email will get easier with tomorrow’s update thanks to Microsoft improving upon the “To” field, which includes a contacts drop-down the company calls “smart contact suggestions.” Windows Mail vs Gmail All of these Windows Mail changes are on par with what Gmail already does – except for one convenient tweak. Drafts will automatically sit at the top of the Mail app’s inbox, ensuring that the drafts folder isn’t filled with half-finished, long-forgotten messages. That’s great news for everyone except tricksters like former CIA Director David Petraeus and his mistress Paula Broadwell, who allegedly used the “Save as Draft” trick to skirt watchful eyes. Maybe they can star in a future Google-made ad for the Microsoft version of getting Scroolged . Windows Calendar, People updates Changes to the Calendar and People are less plentiful, with the Calendar update offering some cosmetic alterations to make app easier to read. “Gone are the solid blocks of colors – instead, those colors are reflected in a small bar on the left of each appointment,” wrote LeBlanc. Functionality-wise, “work week” view retur! ns to this version of Calendar, and Microsoft added the scheduling assistant feature for business accounts that use Microsoft Exchange. Windows Calendar users stuck in a lot of meetings will be happy to know that it’ll be possible to forward meeting invitations, send email to all attendees, choose more recurrence options, and set end dates for events. The People app, meanwhile, will mostly improve upon navigation with things like app commands and new filters for social media networks. Xbox Music, Bing AppEx updates too? Mail, Calendar, and People is the focus of the March 26 Windows app update, but Microsoft may also be readying other Windows 8 and Windows RT apps. Xbox Music and the Bing AppEx applications were also scheduled to be refreshed this month, according to an unnamed source who spoke to ZDNet . However, with just six days left in the month, these updates may have to wait until April, even though the publication’s tipster said the Xbox Entertainment app team is “almost done.” Either way, expect to be pinged to update Windows Mail, Calendar, and People via the Microsoft Store within the next 24 hours.

Ding Dong Bubble Gum Releases Animated Full Song 2015

All hail the Ding Dong Bubblegum Super Cat! The latest superhero in the line of brand-inspired animated characters.
Last year, Hilal aired a 1 minute story, showing the animated Super Cat fighting off the mice aka gooneys, who attempt to steal her Ding Dong bubblegum. The video, meant to be a teaser, cuts off with a ‘To Be Continued’ sign.

Now, we see the rest of the story….
Super Cat is back and she’s kicking mice butt, facing multiple obstacles, using her trusted bells and outsmarting her ‘nephew', the Lion.
All this and she manages to take back what’s rightfully hers… the bubblegum!
The best thing about Ding Dong is that the “Cat” in the ad has always been the same. Talk about consistency.
An extended version of the song has been introduced but still goes along the same lines of “Aik billi moti taazi thi, jo mazay se ding dong khati thi”
All in all, a fun video to watch about the age-old brand that most people consider as part of their childhood.
