Reporters and journalists rely on audio recording tools and gadgets especially during press events or interviews. This allows them the chance to go back and listen to the recordings and write things down, but it can be a bit tedious especially if the interview is long, and rewinding and forwarding can take up a lot of time.
If you’re looking to keep track of things like in a database, then using Microsoft Excel is one way to go about it. It is a great spreadsheet tool that can be useful when keeping track of things like names, phone numbers, finances, and more, but it seems that no thanks to Excel’s formatting, it is messing up the research on human genes.
One advice that is generally dispensed to prevent your computer from getting infected by malware or a trojan is to simply not download any file attachments you get in your emails by people you do not know. However, sometimes these attachments might look harmless, like a Microsoft Word or Excel file.
If you’re still using Microsoft’s Office 2016 on your Mac computer, you might want to take note that support for the productivity suite will be officially coming to an end in October 2020. This was announced by Microsoft on their support page where they also revealed that the end of support also means that Office 2016 users will no longer be able to connect to Office 365 services.
Some of you might recall that last week, Microsoft rolled out a feature for iOS users that helped them ignore email conversations. This meant that if an email thread gets too chatty and everyone is hitting that “reply all” button in group emails, they have the option to just ignore it to stop getting unnecessary notifications.
Over the years, Apple has slowly been making inroads in transforming its iPad into a productivity powerhouse. Some of the recent changes include allowing users to use a mouse with a tablet, cursor support, and most recently, trackpad support with the launch of a new Magic Keyboard accessory.
Microsoft Office is currently available on iOS devices. They are available as standalone apps where can choose which one to download, depending on your needs. However, sometimes you might only need the app for basic features, but unfortunately, it will still require you to download the entire app.
These days we’re starting to see more truly wireless earbuds hit the market. This isn’t surprising as more handset makers are ditching the headphone jack, leading to companies developing more wireless alternatives. In fact, Microsoft is looking to toss their hat into the ring by announcing the Surface Earbuds.
Last time when you wanted to purchase a software, you’d pay for it one time and you’d be done. The only downside is that whenever new major versions are released, you’d have to pay for those to get the upgrades. However these days companies are starting to offer up subscriptions, where for a monthly/annual fee, you can get all the upgrades for “free”.
A couple of months ago, Microsoft announced that the upcoming update to their Office suite of productivity apps on macOS would soon gain support for dark mode, which is one of the features of macOS Mojave. Given that dark mode isn’t applied automatically to all apps, it’s nice to see developers start to adopt it.
There are plenty of note-taking apps and reminder apps out there, but in case you’re someone who uses Microsoft Word to jot down everything, then you might be interested to learn that Microsoft has recently made some improvements to Word where they are introducing new AI features that will make your life a little easier.
The concept of dark and light themes aren’t exactly new and we have seen that applied to websites and apps in the past, although in recent times, it seems that there is a greater call/demand for such features. macOS Mojave introduced a dark mode which is applied across the OS and native Apple apps, but it did not necessarily apply to third-party apps.
There are plenty of software features that most of us take for granted, but yet for some there are certain things that are considered simple to us, but yet can take others a long time. Take for example typing, where most of us would not have issues with it, but yet for those who are dyslexic, this becomes much harder.
For the most part, most of us usually have one computer, or maybe two at most where one is used at work, and one for home. However we imagine that there are probably some who have more than two computers, and if that’s you, then you might be interested to learn that Microsoft has decided to remove the install limit of Office 365 for subscribers.
