Unfortunately, Microsoft hasn’t put all the backup options in one place, making it a...

For hundreds of years pen-and-paper has been a freeform way for people to express their ideas. Years ago Microsoft realized that the computer could become a substitute for pen-and-paper.

Now, 14 years later, with the release of the Anniversary...

Google Photos at One Year Old

I started using Google Photos after I reviewed it last year. It became my photo app of choice because I was amazed by its many new features including face recognition, unlimited free storage, and a fabulous photo assistant.
