Giveaway: Office 365 Home Premium
You may recall that last month, I went to Seattle to hang out with Microsoft for a few days.
(Life is hard, I know.)
For someone who spends their whole life online, it’d probably surprise many how much of a digital mess I actually am. I often don’t sort things — including very important things I should, like files related to research, photos, and voice notes — and that makes my work loads harder than it actually has to be.
And so, with spring cleaning time here — at least, people tell me that — my apartment still resembles a Hazmat fiasco gone wrong — and I wonder if, in the absence of cleaning out my cabinets, I should be organizing my digital life?
Office 365 is letting me give away to one of you a 1-year subscription to Office 365 Home Premium — so you can get organized yourself! — and in the meantime, I’m using that as a jumping point to figure out where the heck to go with my own life.
And that one license I’m giving away? It’s even better than you may think because you can use one license for an entire household on up to five devices – this will also give you access to SkyDrive , where you can save all your important documents to grab them on-the-go. Traveling to the Middle East and have an emergency where you need to edit an assignment you submitted 3 weeks ago immediately but the computer you completed it on is back home in New York? (Believe it or not, this happened to me.) With SkyDrive you can just pop in and grab your document from anywhere.
Office 365 Home Premium includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher and Access and one license for the entire household to use Office on up to five devices, including Windows tablets, PCs or Macs, and get Office on Demand from any Internet-connected PC. In addition, you’ll score SkyDrive storage, Skype minutes, and much more.
Here’s some additional tips my friends at Microsoft shared with me about how to use Office 365:
|5 Tips for Travel with Office 365 Home Premium and OneNote:
Microsoft actually just launched a new special-edition OneNote travel notebook last week in collaboration with Travel + Leisure to make travel planning easier and more fun with summer vacation season right around the corner. As I live on an airplane – usually for work and very rarely for play — I’m obsessed. The customizable notebook is packed with expert advice from the editors of Travel + Leisure, activities and foods to try, handy packing lists for all kinds of weather and more; all you have to do is plug and play!
So, the timing is just about perfect to be excited.
