Office for iPad printing

Under new CEO Satya Nadella, Microsoft is moving quickly. Just a month and three days after debuting the long-awaited Office for iPad app, Microsoft added AirPrint support in an updated version of the software on Tuesday. Word documents can be printed with or without markup and Excel users can choose to print a range, single worksheet or full spreadsheet. The updated software also includes alignment tools in Power Point and AutoFit adjustments for Excel rows and columns.

After installing iOS 7.1.1 when it became available on Tuesday, I thought I saw a marked improvement in my iPhone’s battery life. I’m not the only one as ZDNet’s Adrian Kingsley-Hughes noted the same on Thursday, sharing results from multiple six-hour battery tests. Prior to the update, his iPhone battery would drop from 100 percent capacity down to 48 percent. After installing iOS 7.1.1, his iPhone battery is only falling to 76 percent from a full charge in a test cycle. Several commenters on his article agree or have seen similar results, so if you haven’t updated to iOS 7.1.1, I recommend doing so sooner rather than later.

In Brief

First generation Apple TVs have lost their ability to connect to iTunes, according to a 25-page-long thread on Apple’s support forum. Users report they cannot connect to the iTunes store to download or stream movies, TV shows and podcasts, although most internet functions, such as Youtube, are working. The issue appears to be widespread and worldwide, implying an issue on Apple’s backend. Users first noticed the issue last Thursday. Apple has yet to state whether this is a temporary glitch or an intentional change to functionality. The first generation Apple TV was released in 2007 and sold until 2010. The glitch does not affect the second or third generation models.
