Father’s Day gift idea: Upgrading to the latest Microsoft Office

2013-05-29 21:20:18 +00001With Father’s day coming directly at us I know I’ve been asked more then once what can I get my husband thats practical?   How about upgrading that outdated copy of Microsoft Office – sure that 2003 edition is still working why do you need anything different? well one major issue is that schools and office environments upgrade to the latest and greatest editions – and learning and practicing at home is key to success in the office or school.

For less then $100 you can upgrade for the new Office 365 which will give you 5 copies of the latest Office during your subscription.

Thats the key to this gifts – its a subscription – you can go buy a license and thats it you’re locked into this version of office but with the annual subscription you’ll keep getting updates another different is with the subscription you get 5 copies between PCs or Macs or even select mobile devices.

Plus as a bonus an hour of Skype phone calls each month which is pretty solid for that want to keep in touch with those friends that live overseas and if thats not enough how about 20GB of SkyDrive (Microsoft online storage space).

Not sure he’ll like it? Try the free trial for a month.

Ok you’re totally sure he’ll love it? Here’s the purchase link.

Microsoft Office 2013 is out now

OfficelogoOrange_PageThe new Office is the most ambitious release of Office Microsoft has ever put out. It really is a ground up overhaul… The new Office has a fresh, touch friendly design that works beautifully on Windows 8 and unlocks modern scenarios in social, reading, note-taking, meetings and communications.

Best part is the modernizing Office, and an important part of that is the introduction of new subscriptions. Subscriptions open a host of possibilities and with a single subscription, you can use Office across a wide variety of devices – everything from PCs and tablets to Macs – and your documents and settings roam with you with Office in the Cloud.

Wondering if the subscription Office 365 or going with a boxed product that you’ve known for years is the right choice? Check out this chart.

 

I’ve got some great links that’ll help you know whats new and even better some quick start guides to help you jump right into the new apps.
