Microsoft: This is how we assure the quality of Windows 10 updates Microsoft offers Windows 10 users a look at how they use data to improve the quality of Windows 10 updates. Former president of Windows Steven Sinofsky thinks Microsoft's approach to convincing mobile users to get Outlook for iOS is simply "crazy". Sinofsky, who left Microsoft in 2012, this week was attempting to setup his Office 365 account on a new iPhone, but was informed via a generic email from his former employer that syncing email had been put on hold to give him a chance to install Microsoft's recommended iOS email app – the popular Outlook app. Sinofsky was given two choices: install Outlook now and syncing could proceed immediately; or do nothing and continue with the default iOS Mail app, in which case syncing would restart "within a few hours"."Microsoft is recommending that you install Outlook for iOS to access your Office 365 work account," Microsoft's email explains.

Cheapskates don't use Microsoft Office. Or, at least, they don't pay for it: Microsoft offers pretty decent freebie versions of Word, Excel and PowerPoint that live in your browser.And let's not forget the various free alternatives, like Google Docs, LibreOffice and WPS Office.All that being said, I like a good deal, and this is a good deal: Today only, Amazon is offering a 12-month Office 365 Home subscription for $54.99 -- the lowest price I can ever recall seeing. It normally sells for $100 (though has been selling at $80 for a while).See it at AmazonThis version supports up to six users, and those users don't all have to be in your house.

Microsoft is working on a dark mode option for its Office apps on macOS Mojave. Microsoft Office product manager Akshay Bakshi revealed the new option on Twitter this week, hinting that Office testers will get access to this as soon as next week.
