Sneak Peek at the Microsoft Courier

Microsoft Courier

Two still mythical tablet devices, the Microsoft Courier and the Apple Tablet, are probably the hottest and most coveted devices that do not yet officially exist. To further fuel the anticipatory gadget lust, Gizmodo has scored an in-depth look at the former’s user interface and overall design.

Some Other Aspects

As we were clued into by earlier leaks, the Infinite Journal is the key metaphor for Courier. It’s like an enormous notebook for collecting pretty much any kind of content: clippings from the web, your own notes, diagrams and drawings, photos from the on-board camera, etc. Each item gets a timestamp and geotag, and you can add more tags for better searchability as well.

Several key “views” into your Journal are detailed in the leaked document, including a Smart Agenda that acts as a sort of a Cliff Notes representation of your entire journal, making important items visible at a glance. The Journal Overview is another style of at-a-glance window into the journal contents, with an integrated search interface. The Library is the main file browser metaphor that organizes everything by type. The left screen acts as a “favorites” tray where you can sticky your most important apps and projects in one place.

Also detailed is the Browser (pictured below), allowing you to easily clip content from the web into your journal. You can also flip through your history with a vertical Cover Flow-like index card system. Another handy organization metaphor is the ability to “tuck” items into the device’s spine to temporarily store something and move it from one section of your journal to another.

    You’re a star, thanks for taking the trouble to put this up and lots of useful comments- page favourited. The manual is diabolical and I’d had lots of trouble finding how to get the unit to put turn signals up over the display screen I was looking at.I have the City maps, and use the Garmin Connect planner, which in my view is pretty good, and uploads straight into the unit.Needless to say, I sync the Edge with Strava when I get home to see how bad I still am compared to everyone else!Nice cars by the way- S3 XJ is one of my favourites, and in that colour combo!

    You were so fortunate to have had him. I feel fortunate to have spent time with him. He was the only person I’ve ever called “Daddy” ( I called my own father “R.T.”) and Mr. Wells went along with that appellation from a friend of his beloved “El.” I think of his sayings often–just the other day I was preparing for war in time of peace–something I have only recently learned to do in the context in which he meant it. A lovely, well-deserved tribute.
