A week ago, Microsoft handed out a bunch of free storage to consumers as part of its transition from SkyDrive to OneDrive. Specifically, from April through September, Microsoft will charge only $2.50 per user per month, a 50 percent discount.
The move could indicate that Microsoft is willing to reconsider and experiment its traditional pricing model. Microsoft simplified the control scheme, placing the most common tasks in OneDrive for Business directly above the document folder, including creating new Office documents, uploading files, and syncing them for offline use. Further improvements will includeA advanced auditing and reporting features, encryption at rest, data loss prevention (DLP), extensibility improvements, even higher storage limits, and more.

Razera€™s adamant that its new Blade Stealth ultrabook is not a gaming machinea€”and thata€™s fine! Plus, our own Gordon Ung went hands-on with the Core at CES (watch the video below) and told me ita€™s a€?very nicely builta€? after I regaled him with the cost. I guess the main consideration is whether Thunderbolt 3 graphics amplifiers become standard across the industry.
This universal docking station is just the ticket for notebooks and Windows 8 tablets that don't have dedicated docking ports.
If youa€™ve fallen hard for a superthin notebook, youa€™re probably running into the same issues I am. If youa€™re getting by with just a tablet, youa€™re probably having even more connectivity issues than I am, especially when it comes to driving an external display. Robert CardinOpen the top of the Targus dock to find the right power tip for your notebook.
I set the back of the computer on top of the dock, and its wedge shape lifts the computer off the surface of my desk, increasing airflow around it and keeping it cooler. I then repeated these steps in the other direction, copying them from the notebook's SSD to the portable hard drive (a write test). Two of the docka€™s USB ports provide extra power to charge battery-powered devices, whether the computer is docked or not. The dock is equipped with DisplayLink technology, so it can drive two outboard displays (therea€™s one DVI and one HDMI, but Targus provides DVI-to-HDMI and DVI-to-VGA adapters in the box). The a€?with powera€? element of the model name describes the docka€™s ability to provide electrical power to a 19.5-volt DC laptop or Windows 8 tablet using a proprietary stub cable.
Finally, the docka€™s power supply currently doesna€™t support 12-volt DC devices, such as some slates and tablets. Having the dock power the notebook means that I can leave the notebooka€™s power supply in my bag, so I dona€™t have to remember to unplug and pack it every time I go on the road. Microsoft has released a new Customer Preview demo of its upcoming Office 2013 (aka Office 15) suite, and we’ve spent a few hours with the product to get a feel for what we can expect when the full version drops in early 2013.
Humans have a well-known bias that causes us to conflate familiarity and quality, so I’m purposefully not going to poke too hard at the new chromeless UI.

My question is whether this new cloudbased model of pushing the office suite is MicroSoft’s attempt to unlock the massive non-Corporate Market. The exception I notice is when Microsoft stopped including Access as part of the regular Office Bundle. And people say Linux has interface consistency problems… My KDE desktop is 100% consistent between all KDE applications. Right now, the only impact of those styles is to put weird art in the right-hand corner of the window.
Aside from the total whiteness of Excel (which I spend more time in than Word), I’m fairly neutral on the program. On Monday, the company announced its own plan to attract new business users to its cloud storage technology. But beginning April 1, Microsoft will turn that offer on its head: A standalone service will charge for OneDrive itself, and bundle it with the free Office Online suite of Web apps that Microsoft previously introduced. For businesses with existing Software Advantage or Office 365 ProPlus agreements the price will only be $1.50 per user per month, Julia White, the general manager of Office, said in a blog post. Last week, sources told The Verge that Microsoft was testing a free version of Windows, perhaps in preparation for monetizing its services, rather than the operating system.
The app also added site folders for sites within a particular organization, and improved search with type-ahead features. And as the new "Oslo" app experience points out, Microsoft plans to tie the capabilities of each app closer to other services within the company; White promised "deeper cross-Office 365 experiences" over the course of the year.

It works with the infrastructure you already have to cost-effectively enhance your business continuity strategy as well as provide storage required by your cloud applications including unstructured text or binary data such as video, audio and images. Razer announced today that the Core is available for preorder, with the first units shipping in April. The Core is literally the first Thunderbolt 3 graphics amplifier to market, and therea€™s a good chance that other external GPU docks like Asusa€™ ROG XG Station 2 will fall in the same price range.
If youa€™re still using the Core five or ten years down the road, it makes $499 up front seem like less of a big deala€”especially if the Core plays nice with your future Alienware laptop or Lenovo laptop or whatever.
Mine has a beautiful display and great battery life, but it has just two USB portsa€”only one of which is USB 3.0a€”and it doesna€™t have a hardwired ethernet port.
A rubber strip running across the 10.63-inch width of the dock prevents the computer from sliding off. Other ports on the dock include gigabit ethernet (solving my USB-to-ethernet dongle problem), and audio in and out (so I dona€™t have to unplug my headphones every time I take my laptop into a meeting).
Resolution tops out at an odd 2049 by 1152 pixels per display, but ita€™s more than adequate to drive two 24-inch displays at 1920 by 1200 (or 1920 by 1080) pixels each. Targus provides ten different tips for this cable, conveniently stashed in a cubby inside the dock, to meet the needs of common brands. I was surprised to discover that Targus doesna€™t provide a tip for current-generation Lenovo notebooks, but Targus will provide buyers with whatever tip they need after the sale (the company says it periodically adjusts the collection of tips that it ships with the dock, and that the new Lenovo tips will be included soon). If you can't use or just don't need the power feature, the Targus model ACP70USZ dock includes everything else, and it costs $50 less (based on MSRP).
I can live without DisplayPort, since I dona€™t need to drive more than two external displays. According to Microsoft, Office 2013 is a cloud-based product with a physical, licensed-for-perpetuity option for those who aren’t willing to sign up for a subscription service.
Up to now, Office 365 was strictly a business product; Microsoft hopes to change that by integrating features like SkyDrive and offering a multi-license family pack.
My gut feeling, however, is that Microsoft’s relentless simplification has created a design that makes it harder to identify specific items.

Corporate users who ride the IT Dept PC Leases and Remote Desktop Herds will inevitably be pushed int the newest Office flavor of the year whether they like it or not. But even with Access, small office users have little reason to upgrade and CHANGE existing database structures if their current PAID-FOR version is still functional. I broke my comments on the useability interface away from the color scheme because, at the moment, there’s no way to change it. However, Wes Miller, an analyst with Directions on Microsoft, said via Twitter that he saw the announcement as a response to low-cost cloud storage services from Dropbox and Box.
But part of the Stealtha€™s pitch at CES was that it could be a gaming machine, provided you had a spare graphics card around and were willing to pony up for Razera€™s Thunderbolt 3 enabled graphics amplifier, the Razer Core. That functionality will be in select AMD cards at launch, thanks to its new Radeon XConnect technology. And you can find Alienwarea€™s proprietary Graphics Amplifier for $200 these days, though the build quality is less impressive and the hardware less future-proof.
It seems like great technology, but maybe not a€?Half the cost of the actual Blade Stealtha€? great. The transceiver for my wireless mouse and keyboard occupies one port, and a USB-to-ethernet dongle consumes the other.
Targus uses an in-line power brick, so therea€™s no wall wart to hog space on your outlet strip. And I saw no decrease in performance when I added a second USB 3.0 hard drive and performed the same tests with it at the same time.
Targus tells me the dock can support even more monitors if you plug additional DisplayLink adapters into its USB 3.0 ports (the docka€™s software supports a maximum of six external displays when connected to a PC running Windows). Although the dock supports Mac OS X, Targus cana€™t provide tips for MacBooks because Apple wona€™t license its MagSafe power connector.
In Office 2007, the Ribbon’s Clipboard, Font, Alignment, and Number options all have a slightly different background. Fortunately that seems like something that could be helped with minor tweaks or even theming.
Razer says Nvidia's graphics cards, including all GTX 700- and 900-series GPUs, will offer support for the Core at launch as well, though it didn't say whether GeForce hardware will be hot-unpluggable like Radeon cards.
Reproduction in whole or in part in any form or medium without express written permission of Ziff Davis, LLC. The problem Microsoft faces with this approach is that the vast majority of home users rarely buy Office upgrades (assuming they bought it in the first place).
For example, I upgraded to Office 2007 because I wanted the new graphing engine that debuted in Excel that year. I haven’t bought a new copy since, because the 2007 version of Excel does everything I need it to. How is two clicks (well, 3 if you count opening the “developer” tab) better than one?
And why is it that in this age of massive LCD screens, the buttons keep getting bigger and wasting more space?
In my use-case (a five-year upgrade cycle), assuming I needed three licenses, that works out $9.93 per license, per year. Unless Microsoft makes Home Premium ridiculously cheap, it’ll cost significantly more to subscribe over five years than it will to just buy a license for $119.
The five-license offer might be great for people who actually need five licenses, but I suspect that even in a family household, only 1-2 computers actually need to be running the latest and greatest Office flavor.Using Office 2013During Install, Office prompts you to sign in using Windows Live.
One of the peculiarities of the new interface, however, is the way double and single clicks are treated.
