Outlook.com Very cool. Very free.

Okay, I know that it’s been around for a few years, but I have just discovered it. And it’s all due to my mother-in-law. You see, she’s coming to visit us soon and she wants to be able to use her own email anywhere. The question for her (and therefore, for me) was how to put something together that would be simple and easy for her to use and accessible anytime, anywhere. Then it hit me… Outlook.com is a full on, online, Microsoft Office tool. And it’s free! Tools include Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Calendar, People (contacts) and OneDrive.

“There are two type of computer users. Those who backup and those who will.” Imagine that you have all your most sacred data: video, pictures, email, documents, and business on your computer.

Finally, imagine what would happen if suddenly and without warning, there was a power surge so powerful that it literally burned every part of your computer. Every part.
