    I have it on 625 and 930.

    Most of my friends can't do that.
    I wonder why

    Depends on the device hardware/software.

    I remember when they think my 625 is expensive devices. ._.

    You can try this - DataNumen Word Repair - Powerful Word recovery tool. Recover corrupt Word documents. Repair doc files.

    Or online - https://online.officerecovery.com/word/

    You can also try doing a scan on the USB drive to see if that helps at all. Check disk.

    It's been a while since I had to do something like this.
    I'm headed into work a little earlier to try to see what I can do to help her out. I recovered something yesterday/last night but she's got tables and graphs in there so I need to see what I can do to try to get those back.

    This is why I throw nearly all my important documents on my Onedrive. Yes, I almost exclusively wrote my papers on my T100, but I sync much of my stuff online. I don't use flash drives at all to avoid this. I suppose I'm used to doing things like this anyways since I'm platform agnostic and want to be able to access my readings and notes for school from any device I own.

    I totally agree. I don't get the hype over wanting to install beta software on a daily driver. I don't see why you would want to do that. I don't get the excessive excitement over it either. The only reason I'm doing it is because I can.

    As for the N7, I found after I did a reset that it works a lot smoother now. I have 5.02 installed. Apparently 5.1 is coming...
    Well, mine is rooted because there some data I ported over that I am not going to lose. I usually like to wait until they get root before upgrading but in the meantime the memory leak issue on this thing makes me want to throw it at my i-d-i-o-t supervisor at work at times.

    it always amuses me with people of the older generation with windows phones - no offence to anyone over 50 here - but they just don't seem to make full use of WP8.1 - they see my highly customised start screen and pull out there own and they haven't customised it in any way - most have plain tiles - no folders - no picture background - and tiles they don't use. At the end of the day if they only use it for calls and texts that's perfectly fine - but why get a Lumia 930 when your not going to use it to full potential?

    There's probably only one thing I'm not platform agnostic about, Office. Everything else I'm pretty open about. My wife has tried using Google Docs and she hates it. It keeps messing up her documents. So we're using Office Online instead because it's just simply better and more compatible with what we have. It's not perfect either but it's far superior to Google Docs.

    I've seen this a lot with some people in Finland. Most buying it because it's a Nokia and you look at their screens and you think, what are they doing???

    I agree totally though. If they're just using the basics then a cheaper phone would suffice but they do have the same thing in Finland like in the US that you get the phone on discount. Also, unlimited data plans are typical in Finland and fairly cheap.

    Saying that, there's still many people older people in Finland wandering around with old Nokias.

    So...everything is late on NJ transit. I was about to hop on the PATH train when I noticed I left my wallet at home and it is prudent not to spend the few bits of change I have in my pocket. Here's insight into what I'm talking about with the rails...

    It's funny because with my friend I was the one who told her to get the Office 365 for students as it is discounted. You get two licenses, which is great for her and her husband. I told her that since she has an iPad, she gets great access. I told her that MSFT had expanded the storage so she should use it online.

    I'm going to set it up for her today. I get the need to be picky what you put in the cloud, but important stuff like this should never be left stranded on a device or flash drive.

    1st world access and great marketing by OEMs who need to sell expensive luxury style items in droves to make super profits.

    Even though I use my phones well, I still know I underuse them, but I get max value out of what parts of the phone I use the most.

    I use Office 365, I have the Home edition. 5 licences plus the ones for tablets and the free minutes for Skype, extra storage on OneDrive.

    I've been pushing my wife to get into cloud computing more. She started using a CRM recently for her personal business and we're starting to put more things up for her company.

    One of the projects I'm considering it's writing a CRM database and an app to use for her type of businesses. The ones that are currently out don't work well with her type of business.

    I sometimes try to double tap to wake, or swipe up like it's a Windows Lockscreen on my iPad Air 2.

    I do love Touch ID though!

    I have some people at work with WPs that are like that... But they're younger people. I'll say "hey, you know you can customize that start screen right? Add a background image etc." they just shrug their shoulders. Most regular, non-tech enthusiasts don't really care, and are content just having a working phone I guess.
