  • Google Graveyard 2013

    One of the great things about Google is that it supplies us with a seemingly never ending list of products, many of them free.

  • How Windows Red can fix Windows 8: The right strategy for Microsoft

    When Microsoft first outlined its strategy 32 months ago to bridge the old style of PC computing with the new world of tablet computing, we were optimistic. Although Apple had revolutionized computing with the iPad, creating the fastest-adopted technology ever, its approach walled off the tablet from the PC, with two different operating systems, user interfaces, and applications.

  • Why Office 365 is a better deal than Office 2013

    The new Microsoft Office is here. As with the previous versions, you can get Word, Excel, PowerPoint and more as a locally installed suite of applications or as Office 365, a cloud-based subscription.

  • Decoding Microsoft Office: Which Office version does what?

    Once upon a time, bright boxes of the latest Microsoft Office pleaded for your attention in big box stores.

  • Five ways the Surface RT beats the iPad

    I've had a month to play with the Microsoft Surface with Windows RT tablet. Microsoft faces a serious challenge to compete against devices like the Apple iPad, Google Nexus 10, Kindle Fire HD 8.9, and other full-size tablets. But, Microsoft deserves some kudos for engineering a very solid, capable device to show off the Windows RT platform.

  • Why you should upgrade to Windows 8

    Microsoft?s new operating system may look like a radical departure from Windows 7, but it works, it makes sense ? and it?s the future.

  • 10 features in Windows 8 that you won't find in Windows 7

    Microsoft's radical shift to touch-centric computing in Windows 8 is far from the only difference between the new operating system and its predecessor.

  • Microsoft Surface RT vs Apple iPad - Tablet showdown

    Microsoft Tuesday announced that it is accepting online orders for its ARM-based "Surface with Windows RT" touch tablet. This is the first Microsoft-designed and -sold mobile device, due to ship Oct. 26 with the formal launch of Windows 8.

Windows XP migration for dummies

When 8 April 2014 rolls around, any computers you have that are currently running the Windows XP operating system or Microsoft Office 2003 Service Pack 3 will no longer receive support from Microsoft.

Don?t think that Microsoft is turning its back on XP and abandoning customers who remain on the platform. Instead, the company is celebrating the success of XP and realising that it?s time to help customers move to modern platforms and enjoy a new era in technology and productivity. Sounds exciting, right? Download this dummies guide to discover how your organisation can successfully complete Windows XP migration, easily and without complications.
