Online Meetings & Webinar Software – Fast & Free with MeetingBurner

MeetingBurner

https://www.meetingburner.com/

For readers looking for a free online platform for small meetings and webinars, MeetingBurner is a good choice. The free service can host up to ten participants, and includes screen sharing, group chat, audio and video conferencing, and some mobile tools. This can be especially helpful for small organizations with a limited budget, since few web conferencing providers offer free plans. However, to access more of MeetingBurner’s advanced features (such as the ability to host up to 50 or 250 attendees and recording options), users must pay a monthly fee. In a nutshell, this basic service is one of the few free web conferencing services available and it is perfect for small business owners or non-profits on a budget. [CNH]

Microsoft Edge – Free download and software reviews – CNET Download.com

From Microsoft: Go beyond browsing. Experience a more personal and productive web on Windows 10. Write, type, and doodle directly on your web page with Web Note, then share your notes with others. Don’t let the web get in the way of a good read. Reading View sweeps distracting content out of your way so you can read only what you want. Microsoft Edge makes recommendations easily to get you where you’re going. And with Cortana on board, you can do more, fast.

Editors’ Note: Microsoft Edge is included in Windows 10

Mozilla Firefox – Free download and software reviews – CNET Download.com

Windows 10 introduced a different way of assigning default programs that requires a few more clicks and greater familiarity with the operating system’s interface. Mozilla has responded with Firefox for Windows 10, which features a more streamlined Firefox installation, some visual tweaks, and a more secure add-on development process.

From Mozilla:

Mozilla Firefox is a fast, full-featured Web browser. Firefox includes pop-up blocking, tab-browsing, integrated Google search, simplified privacy controls, a streamlined browser window that shows you more of the page than any other browser and a number of additional features that work with you to help you get the most out of your time online.

Intuit puts venerable Quicken up on the block | Computerworld

Intuit yesterday announced that it would sell its Quicken unit, the group that creates the personal finance software that made the company famous.

The news — and Intuit management’s explanation for the sale — illustrated the retreat of personal computer desktop software and the rise in cloud- and subscription-based services. It also distressed users, who wondered whether the banking and investment software would survive, and if not, how they would replace a program they’ve relied on for years, sometimes decades.

On a conference call with Wall Street analysts Thursday, CEO Brad Smith said Intuit would focus on its small business and tax software, represented by QuickBooks and TurboTax, respectively — both have strong cloud- and subscription-based businesses — and is ditching Quicken because, as a strictly desktop product, it has neither.

Windows 10 Upgrade — Should I do it now or later? – Jim Calloway’s Law Practice Tips Blog

Jim Calloway:

NOTE: A group asked me to give them some comments on whether to upgrade to Windows 10 now or later. I did some research and and provided them a short paper with some links included. Word got out and I have already been asked to email that paper a few times so I am posting it here. The links were visible to allow someone to still have them if it was printed on paper. I am leaving that “as is.” Disclaimer: No, I have not done this yet myself, but hope to soon.

The Internet is big. Really big. In fact, as of the time of this writing, there are over 900 million websites to navigate on the World Wide Web. So how do you choose the best, the most innovative, the most useful, the most beautiful? Every year, the Webby Awards does just that. Readers will find much to explore on the Webby Awards’ website. The site can be scouted by category, including Special Achievement, Websites, Online Film & Video, Advertising & Media, Mobile Sites & Apps, and Social. Within each category, awards are meted out by subcategory. For instance, within Websites, there are awards for Art, Best use of Photography, Best User Experience, and many others. For a trip down memory lane, the site can also be searched by year, all the way back to 1997. While not all winners of the Webby Awards are equally academic, there are plenty of interesting and educational website recommendations for Scout Readers on the site.[CNH]
