Microsoft has equipped Windows 10 users with a comprehensive set of tools to get their action center settings under control — even if most users don’t know it.

Back in the prehistoric ages, Neanderthals resorted to cave drawings to tell bedtime stories or to announce marriages. Microsoft PowerPoint is the modern-day equivalent of cave art; the objective remains unchanged, but its efficiency can be questionable.
Virtualization has taken the IT world by storm, and if you’re not up to speed on exactly what that means, it’s time to change that.

As subversive as smartphones may be, we’ll likely never be able to completely get away from desktop computing.

The art of organizing a meeting is much like chess. Each player has different possible moves, or availabilities; and it’s up to you to strategize which pieces to move where, or which events to schedule (or reschedule) when.

Phoning your boss to justify why you couldn’t make it to the morning meeting is pretty bad, and going through this on a regular basis is even worse. But imagine being able to manage all your appointments and never miss a single one again — fortunately, the wait is over.
A good business owner needs to occasionally put themselves into their employee’s shoes to get a better picture. Imagine you are a sales representative, most of your working time is split between email inbox and CRM software. All that jumping around between the two is going to become very problematic.
