The new Microsoft Office is here – CNNMoney

Tuesday, September 22, 2015

Poor Microsoft Office. It is Microsoft’s most successful product, but has been stuck in a 90s-era time warp.

Tuesday, September 22, 2015

The late senator Ted Stevens, of Alaska, took flak for calling the Internet “a series of tubes,” but his phrase, however analog, hits on a truth that we frequently forget: there is a physical infrastructure undergirding our seemingly ethereal global network.

Robert F. Bukaty/AP Photo; Brian Cahn/ZUMA Hillary Clinton’s defenders have regularly and vehemently tossed aside accusations that she mishandled her emails as secretary of state. But a group with close ties to the Clinton campaign has made a curious argument to support her: There’s nothing to see when it comes to Clinton’s emails—but by the way, Jeb Bush did a similar thing with his emails as governor of Florida, and…
