If you have a Windows computer and have been resisting the upgrade to Windows 10, it may be time to think about jumping in and getting this upgrade done.
You only have until July 30th to grab this upgrade for free. From July 30th, it will cost you at least $179. I read in The Age today that Microsoft will then be releasing an anniversary upgrade to Windows 10 with many new features.
But before you do consider upgrading, have a read of this article from The Age.
It provides details of what computers can cope with the upgrade, because not all can. It suggests that, for some people who have older computers, it may be best to leave your old computer alone, and wait until upgrade to a new computer.
My own experience with many clients who have upgraded is that older printers and devices have stopped working after the upgrade. This has sometimes just required the download of a new 'driver' or other software. But, in some cases, the device was just not supported by Windows 10, making the 'free' upgrade a bit of a 'false economy'.
(If you have an older computer and are considering moving to something newer, make sure you consider whether you really need a computer! For most people, an iPad or other tablet may very well meet your needs. Make sure the check out these options.)

Microsoft has launched a new website, offering a program that attempts to guess the age of the people shown in a photo that you upload.
(Click on the image to see the article about the Microsoft program from today's Age newspaper.)
I had a play with it this morning. Depending on the photo - my age ranged from 42 to 59!
I tried it on a few other faces, and found that it rarely guessed anyone's age correctly - usually adding years to peoples' ages.
Try it out yourself and see what you find.

For anyone looking to buy Office for Mac 2011, Estore is selling it at a reduced price today.
(This may be because the next version of Office for Mac is coming out later in the year, but I am quite a fan of the current version!)
Office for Mac 2011 is normally priced at $169, but my 'daily deals' newsletter from EStore shows they are currently selling it for $134.
Visit eStore to see this deal.

I have not even attempted to use the new MS Word, Excel and Powerpoint on my iPad or iPhone because I just didn't want to pay a yearly subscription fee to use them.
With other free or cheaper options available to me, I just couldn't justify the cost.
Well, now I will definitely be looking to make use of these Microsoft products on my iPad (maybe not so much on my iPhone) - especially for my presentations during classes.
Microsoft has just announced that Microsoft Office for iPad and iPhone will now be FREE!
