Microsoft Band 2.0 | Smarter Watch

My niece was pacing back and forth in her living room the other day, trying to get out of 3rd place on her FitBit stats. I found that amusing and fascinating.

My current watch tells me to have breakfast by 9:00am and lunch by 2:00pm. It helps me grill country style pork ribs or asparagus spears. It has a timer, and a light.

Clearly, I needed a smarter watch, stat!

What do I need to wear on my wrist daily… nightly… cloudly… My smarter watch has myRoundPro provided by Taylormade.

Sure, it will count my steps, heart-rate and calories burned too. Nevertheless, the golf feature is what sold me!

Microsoft Band 2.0 is stated to be announced on October 6th.

Top Margin Missing | WORD 2013

Every time I opened my WORD 2013 blank document, the top margin was missing:


Annoying, but was simple to fix.

If you’re reading the document in Print Layout view and all of the pages appear to be cut off, with no top or bottom margin, the option for hiding white space between pages has been turned on. You can restore them by pointing and clicking in the document.

1. When top and bottom margins are not showing, point to the top or bottom of a page until the pointer becomes a double-pointed arrow, and then double click.


Additionally, you can double check the WORD Options:

1. Click on File (in an open WORD 2013 document)

2. Click on Options

3. Click on Display > Select Show white space between pages in Print Layout view



Much better!
