Titan Tech Tip for Tuesday, September 21, 2010

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

There are two types of people in this world: geniuses, and not geniuses. We all, however, have our place on this spinning mass that we call Earth. Lucky for us, both types have access to join.me, a website which allows you to share your desktop (or even control of your mouse and keyboard) with friends, coworkers, or enemies, as well as voice chat, text chat, and even file sharing. Simply go to Join.me, download the app, and it gives you a website address to share with your friends so that they can connect to your computer.

So, now, those genius types can spread the wealth, and those non-geniuses… well, help’s closer than ever before.

This is absolutely AWESOME. If you’ve got an hour or so to waste–no, I retract that, an hour or so to enjoy, watch this John Mayer concert. Absolutely phenomenal, and really connected with his audience. Pretty cool. Thanks Logan!

Titan Tech Tip for Thursday, September 16, 2010

Special thanks to Mr. Tai for pointing this week’s tech tip out to me via email. If you don’t own a copy of Microsoft Office, or haven’t yet upgraded to the newest version which supports .docx, .pptx, .xlsx, and the other new document formats, don’t fret! Mr. Tai discovered Microsoft Office Live, which is a service being provided by Microsoft for free, at Office.Live.com. Simply sign up for a free account, or log in to your existing account, and click on the tab for Office. There, you can create new Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint, or OneNote documents, and share them with others via your Windows Live profile page. To open existing Office files, simply upload them to your account by clicking “Add Files”, and selecting those you wish to open. Once again, thanks to Mr. Tai, you can enjoy free access to Microsoft Office’s capabilities without being thrown in jail for stealing it!
