Get A Great Deal On Microsoft Office 365 Personal

[FEATURED GEEK SQUEAK] Get A Great Deal On Microsoft Office 365 Personal– A year ago I would have told you that Microsoft was behind the eight ball and was not in tune with the current devices (such as tablets, smartphones, etc.) which are supported by cloud computing. A year later I am seeing a new Microsoft that is quickly rebounding and doing things that I never thought I would see them do.

One example (of late) is their pricing model changes and incentives with Microsoft Office 365.  If you do not know what Microsoft Office 365 is, let me break it down in one sentence. Microsoft Office 365 is an online subscription service to Microsoft Office where you pay an annual fee to keep Office on your computer (and other devices).

Microsoft Office 365

There are quite a few pricing models for Microsoft Office 365, but the latest deal that jumped out at me was Microsoft Office 365 Personal where Microsoft has thrown in a Terabyte of online storage and 60 Skype minutes for $6.99 a month (or $69.99 a year at a 16% savings).

Office 365 Personal enables you to install the latest full desktop version of Office applications, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and Outlook, on 1 PC or Mac, in addition to 1 Windows tablet or iPad — so you can use all the features offline as well as online. You can also install Office on multiple smartphones.

What is making this sweet is the terabyte of online storage (and the Skype minutes); PLUS, the satisfaction of knowing that your version of Microsoft Office is always up to date.

MediaFire App Now Available For Android

MediaFire is an online file storage and sharing service that most computer users at home are not familiar with. With MediaFire you are given 50GB’s of space (for FREE) with a 200 MB file upload size limit. Compared to the other online storage services (which typically offer much less FREE storage space), MediaFire is very generous in their offering. I have maintained an account with MediaFire for nearly 2 years and have never experienced an issue.

MediaFire

The complaint you will hear coming from people about MediaFire is that they will remove your account is your account is inactive. There is some truth to this; however, the rule is that if you must access the MediaFire API (your account) from either the Web, your Mobile platform or your desktop platform at least once per year and if you do that, your account will never be removed.  This is a pretty easy rule to follow; especially, that you are getting 50 GBs of online storage space.  If your account is in jeopardy you will receive sufficient notice via the email account you signed up with.

The one downfall to MediaFire, that I was experiencing, was no Android App available to access and manage my MediaFire files from my tablet. This has all changed within the past couple days (prior to the writing of this article).  MediaFire now has an Android mobile app available in the Google Play Store that can be downloaded to your Android phone or tablet.  You can get the MediaFire App [HERE] .

The MediaFire mobile app lets you access all your documents, photos, and videos from anywhere. Securely store, organize, and share all your data on the web and through your Android device.

MediaFire Mobile App

Features:

• Keep all your important files at your fingertips.
• View docs, spreadsheets, presentations, video, and listen to audio.
• Take and upload pictures and videos directly in the MediaFire app.
• Upload Android gallery images.
• Create and manage folders of files.
• Share files on the go via email, SMS, through other Android apps, and with copy and paste links.
• Quickly search all your MediaFire files and folders.

MediaFire Android App:  Requires Android OS 2.2 or higher
