I have always concluded that an iMac is expensive. I stand corrected today.
Surface Pro 2:
There was a change in Outlook 2010/2013 that all configured mail accounts will get their own Personal Folders list (pst-file) or mailbox. By doing so, all mail data is automatically separated for each account.
When you want to monitor all your POP3 accounts from a single mailbox in Outlook, you are going to need to change the delivery location on all those other email accounts.
This can be an already existing folder such as the Inbox of your main mailbox or a separate (sub) folder.
There you go, you have tamed the Outlook inbox beast.
Albeit this concept came out in 2010, the 3D Express Coach (straddling bus, straddle bus, or tunnel bus) was a proposed new bus designed by Shenzhen Hashi Future Parking Equipment Company. It was recognized by Time magazine as the innovation of the year in 2010.
A proposed trial project was to cost about 500 million yuan (~US$74.5 million) to build the bus with a 40 km (25 mi) guideway. This is claimed to be at 10% of the cost of building an equivalent subway, and is estimated to reduce traffic congestion by 20–30%. The Chairman of the company has said that it would only take a year for one to be built. 115 mi (185 km) of track was set for construction in the Mentougou District of Beijing for late 2010. The cities of Shijiazhuang, in Hebei Province, and Wuhu, in Anhui Province, were applying for financing.

If you just bought a new computer, more than likely it is a Windows 8 PC. And if you use iTunes, we will show you how to move your iTunes library to your new Windows 8 PC.
First: Find your iTunes Library. (This only works if you were using iTunes to organize your music. Any music you uploaded into iTunes’ interface are automatically copied and placed into a specific location by the program)
Pull up iTunes’ Preferences windows and click its Advanced icon. iTunes will tell you exactly where it’s keeping its Media folder. Navigate to this location within Windows Explorer and copy all the directories representing your music to some kind of external storage device.
Before you go dumping these tunes onto your new Windows 8 PC, download and install iTunes, and then go back to the same Preferences > Advanced window on your new PC.
Make sure the location you want iTunes to use for your new Media folder is set, and check the following two options: “Keep iTunes Media folder organized,” and “Copy files to iTunes Media folder when adding to library.”
From there, all you have to do is drag-and-drop the folders full of music on your external drive directly into your new, empty iTunes folder on your Windows 8 PC—the app will take care of the rest.
Seems when I went to activate the license key for Office 2013 on a brand new system, I was getting an error message. Try again later. Which I know to mean, it isn’t going to activate automatically over the internet.
So the first thing I wanted to check was whether I typed the key in correctly. Typing isn’t really my strong suit. I found the following:
Changing the Product Key for Office 2010 or Office 2013 doesn’t require a trip to the Registry and can be done directly from the Control Panel or via a command line.
To change it via Control Panel, open the “Add/Remove Programs” applet (Windows XP) or the “Uninstall a Program” applet (Windows Vista or Windows 7). Locate your Office 2010/2013 application and press Change. Setup will now start with the option “Enter a Product Key” which allows you to enter a different product key.
You can also change the Product Key via the OSPP.VBS script. Instead of using the /dstatus switch, you must use the /inpkey:value switch where you should replace value for your Product Key. Here’s the VBS script for Office 2013 running on Windows 7 64 bit: cscript “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15\OSPP.VBS” /dstatus
Unfortunately, the product key is correct, so my two options are to call DELL and ask why I have an invalid key or contact Microsoft. Neither option I look forward too.
It’s nice to see that we finally get the standalone application for Skydrive Pro. Which means you don’t necessarily have to have Office 2013, but you do need:
Once installed, simply click SYNC in the top right corner of your SkyDrive Pro library, SharePoint 2013 or Office 365 team site document library and you’ll be on your way to keep your files in sync across your machines. Happy syncing with SkyDrive Pro–cloud storage for employees!
I have had luck by just copying the old Stream_AutoComplete_XXX dat file from C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\RoamCache folder and renaming it to whatever the new dat file is.
Course you can try:
Note After you import the .nk2 file, the contents of the file are merged into the existing nickname cache that is currently stored in your mailbox.
Or try the FIX IT for me solution provided by Microsoft. That’s worked once or twice too.
I have been a Tech since 1999 and am always ready for change, but Windows 8 is exactly what the video states:
“2 user interfaces, stapled together”
Please note* There are some parts of the video that may not be suitable for sensitive viewers.
Windows 8 only runs Internet Explorer 10 and you will find that some sites don’t work. There are a few ways of fixing this – if you’re using the new full-screen App version and get any issues, the fix is basically to try opening the site in the desktop version. (Does not apply to Surface RT) Click or touch the spanner icon, then click on
View on the desktop option to flick over to the regular Windows desktop and view the site in desktop IE. (Introducing IE 10 Video)
You may not see the compatibility icon in all sites: If you see the icon, click on it (the compatibility icon looks like a broken page) to set the browser to a mode which is more amenable to sites that haven’t yet adopted HTML5 or are not expecting to see IE10.
If there isn’t a compatibility icon, press ALT to show the menu bar, offering the ability to add your current site to the list (via the Compatibility View or Compatibility View Settings options) Add your sites there.
Once there, if you’re still seeing issues:
· If browsing a site is still incompatible, in the desktop IE10, press F12· Click on the “Browser Mode” menu, then Select the IE10 Compatibility View, and close the debug view by clicking the X in the corner.
· If the IE10 view doesn’t work out, then try setting to a previous mode by repeating the F12 trick and choosing an older version of the browser from the menu.
This tip has been known to work on troublesome websites.
Click on Redeem now and fill out Country, Product Key, Accept and Verify:
You are ready to download?? And therein lies the rub… there is a catch, sure there is. You need to sign up for Office 365 for 3 months, whether you want that or not. So no, you don’t just get the stand-alone application.
You have to Sign In to a Microsoft account to continue, so I used an old hotmail account and clicked on Select.

And finally, the INSTALL.
It dropped a 585kb “Click To Run” exe and that’s all you get. I’m sure once you click on the Setup.exe, it will install Office 2013, but I am waiting to implement Office 2013 with Windows 8.
UPDATE! I found where you can download the software. It is under your account settings under frequently asked questions.
That appears to be a continuous loop and you can only order a disc for $15.11. Ok, that’s enough nonsense for me this morning.
UPDATE: I have gone back to the account and am now able to download the *.img file.
