Would you use Google Docs or Microsoft SkyDrive Office?











For a very long time, if you wanted to use a word processor, you would go to the store and buy a copy of Microsoft Office, or AppleWorks. These things aren't cheap. Most of the time, they can cost over $100! But how does free sound? Most of the time, free is good, so if you don't want to spend a lot of money on a word processor and all of the stuff it comes with, why not try out Google Docs or Microsoft SkyDrive Office? Google Docs comes with a word processor, presentation, spreadsheets, drawing, and you can create forms for your website. Here's the thing about Google: They make stuff that works good and is good! From writing an essay, to presenting to your company, the Google Docs suite comes with almost everything you need to make it work great. The only downside is the word processor doesn't really tell you how many pages you have typed up, and the presentation webware doesn't allow you to have action buttons to go to another slide. But still you get so much for free, including an online hard drive! 1 GB of storage for free, and you can pay for more! Now on to SkyDrive Office. It comes with 4 web apps: Word, Powerpoint, Excel and OneNote and 25 GB of storage! That's right! FOR FREE TOO! Now onto the Office web apps. Picture a basic Microsoft Office. That's what you get. It works like Office, it looks like Office, it is Office. The only downside from what I could see is it is a bit slow, but that could just be on my end. So as you can tell, paying $100 for an office suite like Office isn't necessary anymore. But if you are a student, or a person who needs something powerful and offline, then OpenOffice.org is another choice, and it's free.

Piratz Tavern has Closed, and I'm Glad

If you've ever seen the show Bar Rescue, you know that in most episodes, bar owners are decently pleased with the renovations that happen at the end of the episode. Understandably, some of the owners aren't pleased because they loved the bar they had, they just wanted it to be successful. To those owners who quietly took down the updates, or even kept them, that's cool. It's your business, do what you gotta do. One episode in particular did more than just some updates, however.

In the episode, a pirate bar in a corporate part of town in a state without an ocean called for help to Jon Taffer. Apparently, a bar with a pirate theme and a complete staff of costumed pirates in a state not known for pirates doesn't work very well, and the owner was over $900,000 in debt. Taffer found the usual mistakes: bland drinks, bad food, and cocky owners. When Taffer suggested to move away from a pirate theme to the owners and bartenders, it was like he suggested they cut their arm…

2013 Jeep Patriot Review

If what you're looking for in a vehicle is the most patriotic sounding car, look no further than the Jeep Patriot. Or an American Motors Eagle. Oh, if I could've been a car buyer in the '80s, the Eagle would've been my ride. And honestly, they have a lot in common: they're both car-based crossovers designed to give 4WD when you need it. The only thing the Patriot is missing are those sweet door handles and the gigantic windows. And wood paneling.

The Jeep Patriot was designed to be a baby Liberty/Wrangler for those who want better fuel economy in an SUV with a Jeep logo on it. In 2007 when the Patriot was released, there was no Renegade, or Cherokee to provide for a fuel efficient alternative, your other choices were the Compass, which looks like a baby Grand Cherokee, the tank Liberty, and the family-sized Grand Cherokee and Commander. Now that the Jeep lineup has the Renegade, Compass, and Cherokee, where does the Patriot fit in? Well, it won't for long, beca…

Jeep Patriot Base Model Questions

I have a 2013 Jeep Patriot Sport. The "sport" is Jeep's nice way of saying the buyer didn't pay a lot for this car, at least compared to what they could've paid. My particular Patriot has no power windows, locks, and mirrors. However, it does have:

Air conditioningLight up cup holders4WDSpeed sensitive intermittent windshield wipersThis thing that stops the car from rolling backwards when on a hill, which is nice with the manual transmissionA flashlight in the ceilingThe visors extendDecent four-door speakers Now, I'm not complaining, I bought the car because I like it a lot, I just thought it was funny how much comes standard, or can be optioned in besides power convenience.
