Office 365 free For student

Posted on 17/11/2013. Filed under: Business, Internet, PC, Technology-التقنية |

Frank Chiappone is a Senior Marketing Manager for Office 365 Education. 

Announcing Student AdvantageOffice 365 Education provides students with cloud based productivity tools that help them to communicate and collaborate more efficiently, access assignments in shared works paces, have their notes synchronized in OneNote and the ability to use familiar applications such as Word, PowerPoint and Excel anywhere, anytime and across virtually any device. With 110 million users worldwide, we’re thrilled Office 365 Education is helping students to get the most out of their education while gaining valuable skills that will help them enter the future workforce.

As part of our ongoing commitment to education, today we announced Student Advantage, a new offer which will make it easy for students to use the latest and best version of Office at their education institution and at home.

Beginning December 1, 2013, education institutions worldwide that license Office 365 ProPlus or Office Professional Plus for staff and faculty can provide access to Office 365 ProPlus for students at no additional cost.  More than 35,000 institutions are automatically eligible to deliver the Student Advantage benefit to their students.

Nearly 98 percent of students using productivity software currently use Office. Student Advantage enables students to access the familiar experience of Office in an always up-to-date cloud service.

Office proficiency among highest in-demand skills

At Microsoft, we believe technology can play an important role in preparing students for future success and being proficient with Microsoft Office is an important part of that.

New research from IDC shows the nation’s top jobs require well-rounded skillsets. While a number of positions require technical skills, even more require knowledge and cognitive skills gained from use of personal productivity applications and services.

IDC found proficiency with Microsoft Office ranks high at number three of the top 20 in-demand skills highly valued by employers. Specifically, PowerPoint and Word ranked 11th and 13th. Results found Office was the most frequently required software skill, explicitly required in 15 percent of top jobs – 5x that of competitive technologies.

As more and more students begin using Office 365, we’ve been incredibly fortunate to hear some of their stories firsthand.  When asked about his experience using Office 365, Auburn University MBA student, Mark Stevenson noted:

Office 365 plays a fundamental role in my college career. Outlook helps me combine personal and school calendars, email, and contacts in one place. Word, PowerPoint, and Excel are essential tools for homework. With a growing emphasis on teamwork in college, SkyDrive helps me share documents with fellow students and collaborate in new ways online with Office Web Apps. But my favorite part of Office 365 is OneNote. I have completely replaced pen and paper with OneNote and my Windows 8 tablet for note taking and project planning in all of my courses. It’s easy and convenient, and my classmates think it’s pretty cool!

Dead USB Port? Here’s How to Diagnose and Fix It!

Posted on 14/11/2013. Filed under: Internet, PC, Reviews, Technology-التقنية |

Dead USB Port? Here’s How to Diagnose and Fix It!

Did you plug a USB drive into your computer yesterday, but today it doesn’t show up? Yet that drive works in the other USB ports on your computer. The problem may be the port! This is one of those computer issues that happens so rarely, we tend to blame the USB drive itself; just plug it in somewhere else and carry on. However, USB devices are still on the rise in popularity and show no signs of slowing down. USB flash drives, USB chargers for your phone, USB to connect your iPod, USB coffee warmers, USB is everywhere! So you NEED all your ports working. Here’s what you can do to check out your USB port and some tips on fixing it.

Physical Examination

The first thing that you want to do is to see if the USB port is physically damaged. A simple test is to put your USB Flash Drive into the port and see if it wiggles up and down really easily. Be gentle doing this! You don’t want to create a hardware problem if you don’t already have one. If you’re not sure how sturdy the USB port should be, do the same thing in a port that you know works and compare the two. If it is definitely loose, you’ll probably want to move right to the end of this article where we talk about dealing with USB port hardware issues. If not, follow the steps we have here.

Restart Computer

Before you get carried away with Device Manager, try the old tech support standby – turn it off and turn it on again. Sometimes that works by forcing the operating system to scan for hardware, like the USB port, and makes it work again. If that doesn’t work, then it’s time to get into Device Manager.

Check Device Manager

You can launch the Device Manager in a few different ways, but here’s the quickest one: Click on the Start menu and type devmgmt.msc then hit Enter. Device Manager should start up right away. You’ll see the following window:

device-manager

Device Manager shows all the categories of devices that can be installed in your computer. At this point in time, you want to look at the Universal Serial Bus controllers entries. Click on the arrow head to expand the selection. You will see something like the window below:

Universal-serial-bus-controllers

This might not make much sense to you, but there is some useful information here. See where it says Intel(R) 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset Family USB Enhanced Host Controller? That is the specific type of USB Host Controller for my computer. The key words are USB Host Controller. Find those in your Device Manager. If you cannot find any, this may be our problem.

Click on the Scan for hardware changes button in the toolbar. You can see it highlighted in the image below. This will force your computer to check all of your hardware again. If you’re lucky, this will pick up the USB port, and you’ll see a USB Host Controller in the list. If not, then the problem isn’t fixed yet.

scan-for-hardware-changes

From here, things get a little tougher. You’ll still be working in Device Manager for now. If you are working with a desktop computer, with your mouse and keyboard plugged into USB ports, you may need to manually force a restart with the following steps. Uninstalling the USB Host Controllers will disable your USB devices.

Under the Universal Serial Bus controllers heading, you will right-click on the firstUSB Host Controller. That will bring up a small menu like this one:

uninstall-usb-host-controllers

Click on Uninstall. Repeat that process for any remaining USB Host Controller. Now restart the computer. This will force the computer to poll for these controllers and, hopefully, pick up the one that isn’t responding.

While you’re in the Device Manager, did it seem like there were an awful lot of devices installed that might no longer be in your computer? Sometimes the drivers stay lingering on your computer, long after the device is gone. This is a good time to clean those out, and we have just the article on easily removing old drivers from Windows.

Did that work for you? No? Let’s go deeper then.

Disable Selective Suspend Feature

The USB Selective Suspend Feature is a power saving setting in Windows. What it does is suspend power being sent to a USB device, in order to save battery life of the computer. This is a good feature in theory, but on rare occasions the feature does not wake up the USB Device. If that’s the case, then it would appear that your port is dead. You can disable the USB Selective Suspend Feature through a registry key. It’s a good idea to do this on any computer that always has power to it, such as a server or desktop computer. You might not want to do this with your laptop, but if you do, you’ll be able to turn it on again easily.

To get to the Registry Editor, click on Start and then enter regedit in the Search box and hit your Enter key. The Registry Editor window will open. It looks like this, if you haven’t seen it before:

registry-editor

Navigate to the DisableSelectiveSuspend key by clicking onHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, then SYSTEM, then CurrentControlSet, then services, then USB. Where it says DisableSelectiveSuspend in the right-hand window, right-click and click Modify. In the Value Data field enter the number 1. This will disable the selective suspend feature and power will go to your USB ports constantly.

If the USB key doesn’t exist in your registry, it’s easy to create it. Just navigate to the services key, and in the toolbar click on Edit > New > Key. Call it USB.

edit-new-key

In the USB key, right-click in the right-hand window. You’ll only have the Newoption. Click on that and select DWORD (32-bit) Value. It may just be called DWORD Value on your system. Name the new valueDisableSelectiveSuspend. Just like above, right-click and click Modify. In the Value Data field enter the number 1. There! You have disabled the selective suspend feature. You may need to restart your computer for the setting to be applied.

This is a good time to mention that if you ever feel the need to block your USB ports from working, there is a tool to help with that. It’s called USB Manager and we have ashort article on how it works.

Is your dead USB port working now? No? Then you might well consider that the USB port is physically damaged.

Fix Damaged Hardware

If it’s still not working, it may very well be a hardware issue. USB ports are pretty fragile and USB Flash Drives can act as levers on them, wreaking havoc on the electrical connectors inside. This is seen very often in laptops, where the user will pack up the laptop and not disconnect the USB Flash Drive. It can usually be fixed. We have an excellent article on laptop repair that you can use as a starter on this project. Here’s a great video on exactly how to do so:

If you are handy with a soldering iron, you can dismantle your laptop and try to re-solder the connections. I only recommend this for people who have fairly extensive experience with soldering components on a circuit board. You could really mess things up if you’re not proficient at soldering. If this seems a little scary to do , you may want to take your computer to your local reputable computer repair shop. Not everyone is comfortable with soldering on a motherboard.

The Takeaway

There are several ways to try to repair your USB port. Hopefully, it’s just operating system or driver related as that’s the easiest and cheapest fix. Don’t dismay if it is a hardware problem – those can be fixed fairly simply and inexpensively too. The point is, it can be fixed.

Do you have any other troubleshooting tips for USB ports? Ever had to solder the USB port? Know of any software tools that would help in troubleshooting the USB port? We’d love to hear about it in the comments. The comments here are the only ones you should ever read on the Internet. Ever.

Windows Phone Marketplace now open for submissions in more countries 5 خمس دول عربية تظاف لمتجر ويندوز فون

Posted on 24/03/2012. Filed under: Business, Internet, PC, Pocket PC, Technology-التقنية | Tags: |

Windows Phone devices are expanding their availability to more and more places around the world. This week, the company announced that Windows Phone app developers can begin to submit their software to the Windows Phone Marketplace in 23 more countries.

Microsoft previously announced the new countries in a older blog post but just to recap, the new additions are Bahrain, Bulgaria, China, Costa Rica, Croatia, Estonia, Iceland, Iraq, Israel, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Qatar, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Thailand, Turkey, UAE, Ukraine, Venezuela and Vietnam.

These new countries, along with five others that Microsoft added in February, means that Windows Phone users will be able to purchase and download localized apps from a total of 63 different countries.

Microsoft’s blog post announcement also gives a heads-up to app developers. Due to the increase in the number of apps being submitted to the Windows Phone Marketplace, it is now taking at least seven days to certify and publish a Windows Phone app after it is uploaded to the developer App Hub. Also, some of the new countries on the Windows Phone Marketplace list will have some additional requirements of their own before an app is certified to be sold on their local system.

Google Public DNS: 70 billion requests a day and counting

Google Public DNS: 70 billion requests a day and counting

2/14/2012 10:00:00 AM
We launched Google Public DNS in December 2009 to help make the web faster for everyone. Today, we’re no longer an experimental service. We’re the largest public DNS service in the world, handling an average of more than 70 billion requests a day.

DNS acts like the phone book of the Internet. If you had to look up hundreds or thousands of phone numbers every day, you’d want a directory that was fast, secure and correct. That’s what Google Public DNS provides for tens of millions of people.

Google Public DNS has become particularly popular for our users internationally. Today, about 70 percent of its traffic comes from outside the U.S. We’ve maintained our strong presence in North America, South America and Europe, and beefed up our presence in Asia. We’ve also added entirely new access points to parts of the world where we previously didn’t have Google Public DNS servers, including Australia, India, Japan and Nigeria.

Shortly after launch, we made a technical proposal for how public DNS services can work better with some kinds of important web hosts (known as content distribution networks, or CDNs) that have servers all of the world. We came up with a way to pass information to CDNs so they can send users to nearby servers. Our proposal, now called “edns-client-subnet,” continues to be discussed by members of the Internet Engineering Task Force. While we work with the IETF, other companies have started experimenting with implementing this proposal.

We’ve also taken steps to help support IPv6. On World IPv6 Day, we announced our IPv6 addresses: 2001:4860:4860::8888 and 2001:4860:4860::8844 to supplement our original addresses, 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4.

Google Public DNS’s goal is simple: making the web—really, the whole Internet!—faster for our users. If you’d like to try it yourself, please see our page Using Google Public DNS. For more information, please see our Introduction to Google Public DNS and Frequently Asked Questions.
