Microsoft has launched some new features in its Excel spreadsheet software that will boost its power. But will that only be for the benefit of users?
- Calculate math operations, like whether a number is prime.
- Bring information from the web, like a bank account balance.
- Stream live data, like a stock price.
Hmm… Yes, well, I can think of a few more examples that maliciously-minded developers might be keen to try out.
But hey, nothing bad could come of this, surely!
