Microsoft’s Office for iPad Wildly Successful
There had been some speculation that maybe Microsoft was too late to the game but, apparently, they are doing just fine. But, in my opinion, the true measure of success will not be in how many app downloads there are but in how many new Office 365 subscriptions there are. After all, that’s where Microsoft will make their money. Granted that many who have downloaded the apps may already have Office 365 but I think there are a significant number that do not. It’s easy to download a free app. How many will take the next step and purchase an Office 365 subscription?
Time for Your Facebook Privacy Checkup?
Generally, I think it’s better to ‘undershare’ (post to friends) than ‘overshare’ (post to public) on social media sites. Otherwise, you have no idea who may be looking at your posts and photos.
Facebook has historically had issues with privacy settings, particularly when rolling out new features. It’s good to see them taking a proactive step regarding users’ privacy.

According to his dad, he has also found a few other hacks on other devices. Someone hire this kid!
