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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Software updates and upgrades are generally seen as a good thing, where they fix bugs, introduce improvements to performance, and also bring about new features. However there are also reasons why people don’t want to upgrade, such as being used to the existing system, or worried about bugs, incompatibility with current software, and so on.
If you’re someone who uses Microsoft Office on your mobile device a lot, such your smartphone or tablet, you’ll be pleased to learn that Microsoft has recently announced some of the changes and new features that will headed to the iOS and Android version of the app some time later this month.

It’s one thing to have the best education and work experience you could possibly have, but if you are unable to show it on your resume or make it clear to prospective employers, then it’s kind of moot.
