The scenario: You need to get a copy of Microsoft Office 2010 installed on your Windows-based computer, but don’t wish to buy a copy the Application. You heard there were free options available for this software but we’re sure how to get the application installed. Included in Microsoft Office 2010 Starter are stripped down versions […]

Since many business users still rely on the desktop Office application, they can’t (or won’t) move to the online Office 365 offering. I look at recent developments in a commonly used version of Office, in what’s shaping up to be a mess.
Download: [Setup Package] [Portable] [Source Code] The built-in Add/Remove Applications feature of Windows is something of a paradox. It should be one of the more powerful pieces of software in the system since it gives you control of most software that is on your computer, but it’s more of a limited viewer/launcher type of tool.

Yes, it’s true that Apple new drive setup named Fusion is NOT a Software RAID – what I’m using is a metaphor, so bare with me on this. In fact, Mac Observer’s look at the technology get’s right to the point on RAID as well as what it does
Truly, this is a Google ecosystem device – so you’ll find better integration and power when you use a Google account (on Apps or merely just a free Gmail account).
