Microsoft Launches Office Online

Microsoft Launches Office Online

Microsoft Launches Office OnlineWhen Microsoft officially announced that they would rebrand SkyDrive to OneDrive, there was also talks that Microsoft could be rebranding other products as well, such as Office Web Apps to Office Online, which admittedly rolls off the tongue a little better. Just last week we had heard how the rebranding could be taking place soon and sure enough it has. Microsoft has since officially relaunched Office Web Apps to Office Online, and with it the productivity suites have also been rebranded, as per earlier rumors. What this means is that apps will now be known as Word Online, Excel Online, PowerPoint Online, and OneNote Online.

One of the criticisms of Office Web Apps is that it wasn't always the easiest to look for when you wanted to use the app. Its placement was not as obvious and that is something Microsoft is hoping to change with Office Online. Microsoft has also promised that sharing and collaborating with other users with Office Online will be a lot easier than before. For those looking to start things off, Microsoft has also included hundreds of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint templates that will allow users to get off to a running start. Essentially this is Microsoft's answer to Google Drive which allows for the creation of word documents and spreadsheets that can be edited simultaneously, but if you're a fan of Microsoft's products, perhaps you should give Office Online a go.

    Apple will disconnect ‘obsolete’ first-gen Apple TV from iTunes in May

    Apple has announced today it will drop iTunes support for some older devices from May 25. This includes the first generation Apple TV, and also any PC running Windows XP or Vista. The company is introducing new security changes which will prevent those devices from using the latest version of iTunes.
    Apple says that the original Apple TV is an "obsolete Apple product" and will not be updated to support security changes. Only those with the second generation of Apple TV or later will be able to access the iTunes store.
    Windows XP or Vista users won't be able to use the latest version of iTunes, but older Windows computers can still use previous versions without support from Apple. Those who do so, however, won't be able to make new purchases or re-download previous purchases on that computer. If you're on on XP or Vista, you'll need to upgrade to Windows 7 or later to continue using iTunes normally.
    The writing was already on the wall for these devices: Wi…

    Windows 10: Microsoft retires HomeGroup

    Microsoft plans to remove the HomeGroup functionality from its Windows 10 operating system. The company made the first step towards that goal in the most recent Insider Preview version of Windows 10 as it disabled it in that build.
    In "a note about HomeGroup" in the release announcement of the Windows 10 Insider Build, Microsoft confirms that HomeGroup will be retired.
    The company introduced HomeGroup in Windows 7 as a new option for home users to access printers, files, and media in home networks. The core idea was to assign all devices to a single HomeGroup to share access to files and printers between all devices.
    It is unclear how popular the feature was and is. It is clear however that it was never the only option that Windows users had in this regard, and it was not the best either for certain use cases. You could not add Mac OS X or Linux devices to a HomeGroup for instance.
    The end of HomeGroup
