New and improved functionality in MS Excel 2010 for PivotTables

What is one of the most important tool of Excel for you? I personally think that Pivot Tables should be the one… Is a great reporting tool for your needs and easy to use. Take the advantage of this to optimize your reports only with a few steps. You can summarize your data as you want… Sum, count, sort, average… The results are displayed in seconds.
Lose a little time to learn more about Pivot Tables and you see that you will not regret.

Traffic-Light Charts to Delight Managers (from ExcelUser)

"Your managers will love traffic-light charts. Here's why...

Managers tend to experience at least two challenges with charts. First, as they glance over reports, they must pause at each chart to determine whether an upward trend is a good result (with sales, for example) or is a bad result (with costs, for example). They could scan results much more quickly if each chart made it obvious whether the current results show good or bad news. "

My next personal challenge: iPhone/iPad development on Windows

For a few months ago I was thinking to start learn how to develop dashboards to be used on iPhone/iPad. I have found some solutions, like Phonegap and Appcelerator using html/javascript solution for this and it seems to be a good solution. I am a rookie on this kind of development so fill free to give me a feedback if you know a better way to do it. Thanks!
