Windows 10 Mobile Office apps end-of-life dated

With official support for Windows 10 Mobile ending tomorrow, we've now learned when Microsoft plans to pull the plug on its Office apps for the ill-fated mobile OS. Those of you who still rely on Windows 10 Mobile's Office apps can breathe a sigh of relief - support for those isn't ending alongside support for the OS tomorrow. In fact, it'll be quite some time before Microsoft washes its hands of Office on Windows 10 Mobile.

Microsoft Office mobile apps Fluent redesign may not be skin deep only

Microsoft Office mobile apps Fluent redesign may not be skin deep only

Microsoft just announced a facelift for its mobile apps, both on Android and iOS that is almost too easy to pass off as just an aesthetic change. After all, Microsoft itself talks a lot about Fluent design, visual coherence, and the like. This might just be the tip of the iceberg and the way Microsoft will be preparing people, especially mobile users for the Surface Duo, and even the Surface Neo, that will be speaking the same design language after all.

Autonomous SmartDesk Home Office Review: Standing desk on the cheap?

Autonomous SmartDesk Home Office Review: Standing desk on the cheap?

Over the past few weeks I've been using the Autonomous SmartDesk Hybrid-Edition while I work. This is a standing desk, but can also be used as a sitting desk. It has a control panel on its right side to adjust the heights at which it's able to rest. OF NOTE: This desk was originally called "Hybrid Edition" but is now called "Home Office" - you'll find that reflected on their listing site.

Microsoft Office mobile app combines Word, Excel, PowerPoint in one

Microsoft announced a great many things at its IGNITE conference but some might be disappointed by a distinct lack of the dual-screen Surface devices or even Windows 10X. Of course, that doesn't mean it is yet again ignoring the mobile market and has, in fact, one particularly curious announcement prepared. It has just started the public beta testing of a new mobile app for Office that, on the surface, seems to simply combine three Office apps into one. That, however, belies the paradigm shift that Microsoft is trying to push to mobile.

Xiaomi RedmiBook Pro 14 looks like MacBook, costs around $560

The RedmiBook Pro 14 looks a whole lot like a lot of notebooks that've been released in the past few years - but most notably one model in particular. RedmiBook Pro 14 comes in three colors - silver, dark grey, and pink, and comes with a black-bezeled display above a black keyboard in a tray-like depression in the metal just above a centered touchpad the same color as the metal. This device does not run Apple's MacOS software, but DOES run Microsoft's Windows 10 and Office Home.

What Microsoft needs to do to stop losing ground

What Microsoft needs to do to stop losing ground

Once upon a time, when you talked about PC software, you could only think about Microsoft. Unless you were talking about games, in which case you'd still be talking about running them on Windows. These days, however, people and companies have begun asking what a computer is today and their definition doesn't always include "Microsoft", "Windows", or even "Office". In almost all sectors save for two or three, Microsoft has been slowly but surely losing its teeth and its market share. And if it doesn't take swift action, it could very well find itself on the verge of becoming irrelevant once more.

Microsoft has unveiled Presenter Coach, a new feature in PowerPoint that helps users improve their presentation skills.

Microsoft Excel Stock pulls in data from Nasdaq and Refinitiv

People have done crazy things with Microsoft's famous spreadsheet program, like games or artwork, but Excel is still all about numbers, figures, and other quantifiable data. Its use in financial settings is, of course, normal but sometimes the data that you need doesn't come from some static source or formula. When it comes to stocks, users need fresh and up-to-date information, which is why Microsoft is now rolling out a new Stocks data type to pull that from the Interwebs and right into your tables.
