This Weeks Radio Show Now Available!

In this Weeks Radio Show, We talk about the Apple Event 2016 with the Unveiling of the new collaborative iWorks, The Apple Watch Series 2 with GPS and the Series 1 with a lower price point. Although without GPS it’s now available for starting around 269. We also look at Apples Role in Connected Classrooms and why maybe this went in a different direction over the past decade. Apple commits to the ConnectED program which is directing Apple technology to the classroom. We couldn’t talk about the Apple Event and not cover iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, much of the focus is on the lack of a headphone port and not towards the fast processor or dual cameras with some nice features we will see with iOS 10, either way, we discuss this and more in this weeks show!

Microsoft Office 365 University only $80!

If you are affiliated with a college, you may qualify for a four-year subscription to Office 365 University from Microsoft…

Though, it appears you must have an eddress that has an “edu” top-level domain.

It can be installed on two computers (Windows or Mac), and some mobile devices.

Office 365 University includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote, Publisher, and Access.

“The Office 365 University plan allows you to install Office on up to two PCs or Macs and on up to two smartphones or tablets, for use by a single person.”

The supported operating systems include Windows 7, Windows 8 and Mac OS X 10.6 or later.  But:  “…you can install Office applications including Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook on your Mac…”  (Based on that statement I assume there’s a chance OneNote, Publisher, and Access will not function on a Mac.)

I read:

“Office 365 University is a four-year subscription for full- and part-time enrolled university and college students, faculty, and staff in accredited institutions…”

“After purchasing Office 365 University at a participating retailer…Each eligible user can redeem Office 365 University product once in a three year period and can only activate a maximum of two.”

As I’m understanding it:  you can install it once on two different computers within three years.  What if a computer becomes unuseable?  Or a licensed user wants to remove the product from one computer, and install it onto another?

The cost of the four-year subscription is only $79.99.  Overall, it seems like a great deal to me…
