What’s new in Office 2016 for Mac • The Register

The Register is a British-based e-newsletter, which is best described as “cheeky”; but they do know their software.  Take a look at the Register’s review of Office 2016 for the Mac:

***

 Microsoft has released a self-destructing preview of Office 2016 for Mac – Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and OneNote – but it still is not the equal of its PC counterpart.

Should Office work as well on OS X as on Windows? You can imagine the question being debated on Microsoft’s Redmond campus. Is it better to keep users hooked on Office and Exchange whatever computer or device they use, or to preserve a key selling point for Windows, given that many business users live in Excel, Outlook, Word, and PowerPoint?

The appearance of decent-though-cut-down versions of Office for iOS and Android suggests that opinion has tilted towards making Office work well everywhere. But a first look at the new Office 2016 preview suggests that Mac Office, while improving, has yet to catch up with Office 2013, let alone with whatever may be in the new Windows Office that’s expected later in 2015.

poetic.io – the simplest way to transfer files

poetic.io

https://poetic.io/

poetic.io is a simple and secure way to transfer files. Sign up just requires an email address. From there, users may drag and drop files as large as 3GB to the poetic.io page, enter destination emails, and then send. (To put this in perspective: the average full-length movie is about 1GB.) Besides speed and efficiency for large file movement, the site also provides basic security, so that readers know only their recipients will receive the data. The site is free and accessible from any computer with an Internet connection, and can be a welcome tool for teachers who need to share data with students and each other, co-workers who are working on data-heavy projects, and others who share large data files (video, graphics, photos) in their work and play.

Apple Makes iWork Web Beta Available Free For Anyone With An Apple ID | TechCrunch

Posted Feb 13, 2015 by Darrell Etherington (@drizzled)

Apple has taken another step toward turning iWork into a service anyone can take advantage of, similar to Google’s web-based productivity suite. The company made its iWork for iCloud apps available to anyone, regardless of whether or not they have any Apple hardware, so long as they have or sign up for an Apple ID. So far, that’s only available via the public iCloud Beta, but presumably if all goes well with the test that will roll out to the standard version of iCloud after that.
