Possible To Use Office For iPad Without Office 365 Subscription | Ubergizmo

Earlier this week Microsoft finally launched Office for iPad. The popular productivity suite, made up of Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps, has landed on Apple’s tablet absolutely free, but there is a caveat. Office for iPad apps can be used for reading, viewing and presentation only. If users want the full editing and composing power, they need an Office 365 subscription. However, a loophole left open by Microsoft makes it possible to use Office for iPad without Office 365 subscription.

PLEASE NOTE WELL:  Technically this does violate limits defined by Microsoft in its EULA or end user rights agreement. While Microsoft doesn’t strictly enforce the tablet installations limit, it trusts that “users respect and understand device limits outlined in the EULA.”

How to use funeral planning to become eligible for Medicaid

One common reason why people are ineligible for Medicaid or SSI is if their assets are over the limit.  Rather than give money away to make yourself eligible, it is better to find ways either to spend the money or convert it into an exempt form.  One way to do this is through funeral arrangements.

 

For both Medicaid and SSI, certain types of funeral arrangements – including burial funds, pre-paid funeral agreements, and burial plots – are exempt from consideration as assets.  In this way, an applicant can reduce their countable assets while also ensuring that their wishes about their funeral are respected.

This memo from Selfhelp explains how these plans work.

How an Under-Appreciated iOS 7 Feature Will Change the World | Cult of Mac

A curious download hit Apple’s app store this week: a messaging app called FireChat.

It’s a new kind of app because it uses an iOS feature unavailable until version 7: the Multipeer Connectivity Framework. The app was developed by the crowdsourced connectivity provider Open Garden and this is their first iOS app.

The Multipeer Connectivity Framework enables users to flexibly use WiFi and Bluetooth peer-to-peer connections to chat and share photos even without an Internet connection. Big deal, right?

But here’s the really big deal — it can enable two users to chat not only without an Internet connection, but also when they are far beyond WiFi and Bluetooth range from each other — connected with a chain of peer-to-peer users between one user and a far-away Internet connection.

It’s called wireless mesh networking. And Apple has mainstreamed it in iOS 7. It’s going to change everything. Here’s why.
