Windows 10, now on 300 million PCs, won’t be free after July 29

I know this may not be NEW news, but it is relevant to some.  In efforts to strengthen the Windows Operating System brand, Microsoft released Windows 10 -free of charge!

Office 365 Planner

Microsoft is soon to be releasing Office 365 Planner and I have to say, I’m pretty excited about this!  For me and the work I do, this product is something I think I would live by.

If you are using Office 365 (for business, as I don’t believe Home or School will include this) -Please watch this video!
