Using iPhone iPad With Microsoft MS Word

Improved Mobile Computing between Apple iPad iPhone and Microsoft Software

drop-google-cloudSo you received a new iPad or iPhone as a gift.  You’ve spent a good portion of your time playing with it, loading up all sorts of wonderful aps from the Apple App Store, and guess what, you really love it!. You might even have taught yourself how to sync all your devices using iCloud! Life is good… right?  Well so you thought, at least until you tried to figure out how to use some of your most important Microsoft Office applications while traveling.

You painfully discover that if you need to use Microsoft MS Word, Excel, or PowerPoint or any of the MS Office suite back at the office, you’re are going to have a big problem using your new iPad mini, iPad Retina or iPhone5 to produce work using Windows based applications. In fact now you might also be thinking I sure wish this gift was a Microsoft Surface tablet instead!  Well now, that’s water under bridge. After all, you don’t look a gift horse in the mouth do you?  So then just what IS the best approach and strategy to use your new iPad and iPhone on the road and still get the work done you need on the Microsoft Office Suite?

Solving this cross application platform problem is not as simple as downloading a free app or even a single paid for app for that matter.  More that likely you probably already discovered that sad fact!  Trust us, we have tried almost every editor and application out there.  None provide a one stop solution. At most you may be able to READ a file but not edit it. However we did some research and in doing so discovered and tested a clever way of using a few strategic apps together, most of them free, alongside a powerful PC utility coupled with free cloud based resources (no, not iCloud). If you set these up correctly the combination of these small applications provided below will allow you to work “on the go” across both your Apple Devices AND your PC based desktop / laptop seamlessly and without spending a whole lot of extra money!

This review will help answer these questions:

1. How can I use a free PC based cloud service like Dropbox or Google Drive to share files across devices? (Between Apple and Windows PC computers)

2. How do I edit and save a file in MS Word, PowerPoint or Excel on-the-go with my Apple Device and still be able to edit that same file on my PC when I get to the home or office?

3. How to edit work in Microsoft Word .docx .ppt or .xls file using and iPad so that it can still be edited on a PC?

4. How to backup files on your Apple Devices and synchronize them with your PC Desktop so that the files are always CURRENT across all of your iPhone, iPad and also PC Windows based computers?



Searching For The Face of God: The Higgs Boson

APNewsBreak: Researchers to announce evidence of ‘God’ particle that explains universe

Man is perhaps one step closer at understanding the nature of the universe in a super sophisticated research facility on the Swiss / French border – perhaps in a few weeks!  What if Science does actually “prove” the existence of a single “force or power” that is the basis for countless human references to a “God” or  “gods(s)” or the concept of a central creator to explain why we are here and aware of ourselves?  We are in fact matter that is aware of itself which has evolved the “intelligence” to do this investigation which has developed over time and space on our corner of the universe.  If we can discover this surely other species in the universe may in fact have reached that same discovery in their evolution. Such a discovery would link our understanding of the universe in a cosmic mutual history as the search for physical truth should lead all scientific paths ( wherever it occurred in the universe) to the existence of this very same “god particle”…. Now think about this…  What other implications might this have?  Can we finally link Science and Religion?  The final bridge of understanding that removes the last vestiges of religious conflict? Who knows…?

We wonder if all the money and effort put forth to understanding the physical universe, and its basic underlying indisputable truth, is just another form of “prayer” just based in “science” and is actually no different than the “prayer” common to all the cultures of the past ( and perhaps on other worlds) that made an effort to pay homage and seek a communication with a creator they could not see but intuitively believe is present in this world right along side us to explain their own existence??  Hmm…  for particle physics this is a BIG DEAL in that it may prove that in fact there is SOMETHING that is responsible for creating the universe…  it did not come out of nothing.  Where these particles come from and how they came to be will sound very much like a religious claim.  I would expect the explanation to be postulated:  “It was always there and always will be… without beginning or end”   …the underlying essence of everything?  So now what ?   We are still killing each other on this planet !!  — ZZB



GENEVA — Scientists working at the world’s biggest atom smasher plan to announce Wednesday that they have gathered enough evidence to show that the long-sought “God particle” answering fundamental questions about the universe almost certainly does exist.

But after decades of work and billions of dollars spent, researchers at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, or CERN, say they aren’t quite ready to say they’ve “discovered” the particle.

Instead, experts familiar with the research at CERN’s vast complex on the Swiss-French border say that the massive data they have obtained will essentially show the footprint of the key particle known as the Higgs boson — all but proving it exists — but doesn’t allow them to say it has actually been glimpsed.

It appears to be a fine distinction. Senior CERN scientists say that the two independent teams of physicists who plan to present their work at CERN’s vast complex on the Swiss-French border on July 4 are about as close as you can get to a discovery without actually calling it one.

“I agree that any reasonable outside observer would say, ‘It looks like a discovery,’” British theoretical physicist John Ellis, a professor at King’s College London who has worked at CERN since the 1970s, told The Associated Press. “We’ve discovered something which is consistent with being a Higgs.”  — AP NEWS via Washington Post >>> READ MORE !!

Widows Registry CleanersIs your computer running too slow for your personality and patience? If so, then you will want to check out some of the useful comparison information in this review article:The Cure For Registry Malfunctionitis before seeking out a professional mental health provider! 

Most of the time computer slowdown and sluggishness is due to problems in your Windows registry, especially if you are still using a Microsoft operating system like XP or Vista.  Windows 7 does do a much better job of performing this type of care and feeding maintenance behind the scenes for you. However, if you are still on an Windows XP or 7 operating system you might want to learn a bit more about the benefits of keeping both your PC Registry and your hard drive maintained properly with low cost automated cleanup software. Learn more about what the Windows PC Registry does and why in fact you need to be concerned about its health as well in this recent FAQ article associated with PC Health Advisor…  this is a super utility that does a great job of pinpointing what parts of your PC system need clean up and optimization to make it run faster…  !

Best Registry Cleaner Review

Registry Cleaner Reviews – Registry Repair Made Easy!

The best registry cleaner software programs are designed specifically to speed up your PC and stop error messages. They do this by scanning the Windows registry and removing broken or obsolete registry entries.

This article is aimed at providing you information in a registry cleaner review so that you can make an informed decision when deciding on which registry repair tool tol use.

The registry is an important part of your PC, and you should only use the best products when dealing with it. (Failure to follow directions by removing registry keys without knowing what you are doing can cause your computer to fail on boot up. Always make a backup BEFORE using any PC registry cleaner for the first time.)

Registry cleaners are a great maintenance tool for your PC. The registry is like the central nervous system of your PC, and problems with the registry can bring even the most robust computer to its knees. Even small registry errors can cause your PC to stop running normally.

About 99% of the time, the reason that computer performance decreases and errors become more prevalent is because of software not hardware problems. That is, problems arising from your operating system (i.e. Windows) and all the programs that are installed on your computer. The remaining 1% of the time, it’s due to a malfunctioning part of your hardware.

Cleaning and optimizing the Windows registry is a good place to start. For more information about what the registry is and how and why it should be cleaned, see our Registry Repair FAQ.

However, computer errors and poor performance can also be the result of a number of other issues including a fragmented hard drive, too many junk files and unnecessary programs running in the background.

ALL IN ONE SOLUTIONS:  We have found that an all-in-one suite of tools like PC Health Advisor which addresses all these problem-areas costs virtually the same as a ‘normal’ registry cleaner is a great value.

STAND ALONE SOLUTIONS: However for specialty work in your registry, products like RegCure are superior.  Both “all-in-one” and “Stand Alone” work great but one is more focused on a particular area of your PC’s health than the other. There are usually additional benefits to this. More in depth diagnosis and clean up for one.

Note: If you’re sure you only want a simple registry cleaner, consult our review below for help finding the right one.
