9 Of The Best Free & Low-Cost Alternatives To Microsoft Office | makeuseof

9 Of The Best Free & Low-Cost Alternatives To Microsoft Office | makeuseof | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

By Aaron Couch

 

"Microsoft Office has dominated the market of text documents, spreadsheets and slide shows for years, and for good reason – it’s one of the very best. However, there’s one drawback and that is the price. Sure, it’s a relatively good investment, but for one reason or another you choose to not pay for it. What do you do?

 

"Thankfully, there are other options – and good ones. These range from web-based apps and local software to free and paid. Although some do cost, all have free options and the price you pay for the paid software is a fraction of what you would pay for Microsoft Office. Through this article I will touch upon any unique features such as mobile capability, cost, user interface and compatibility with Microsoft Office files."

I have been using Open Office for many years with good results.  Also try

the Ipad app OnLive Desktop which provides access to Office programs free of charge.  It is available free at the App Store.

Thanks to reporter Farid Mheir for this intriguing and somewhat frightening infographic on how Google tracks you and what you can do to protect your online privacy. Good, basic information.

In the teaching field, we have to develop in our students different skills (cognitive, linguistic, etc.). However, we forget one of the most important for them: Creativity. The development of this skill is so important that it will improve at the same time the other skills. Students are more alike when face task where they can explore their imagination, even if they are adults, because it enhaces them to remember their childhood and work with more enthusiasm.

How to Recover Lost Data From SSD

How to Recover Lost Data From SSD | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

A lot of people are looking for methods for SSD data recovery, but most of them failed finding one. Now, we’ll work this out. 


SSD is the acronym of Solid State Disk, also known as Solid State Drive. Despite that the first solid state disk drive was developed by Storage Tek in 1970, it was not until the year of 1989 that we finally witness the birth of the first solid state disk in the world. 


 After about 20 years of development, the manufacturing technology has become gradually mature and the SSD has been applied to all walks of life. Though SSD has a high cost, it is gradually spread to the DIY market. More and more computer users choose to replace their old hard drive, which is relatively small in capacity, with a new SSD, whose capacity is relatively large.


SSD (Solid State Drive) is a kind of hard drive which is made by solid state electronic memory chip array. And it consists of control unit and storage unit (FLASH chip and DRAM chip). SSD is exactly the same with common hard drive in the specification and definition of interface, function, usage and product shape and size. The most obvious difference between SSD and the old fashioned hard drive lies in hard drive technology.
