Service says you’re online when you’re not?

Kathleen Atkins

Forum member davy had exited Skype and turned his PC off, but his friends still “saw” him online — according to Skype.

Davy wondered why and asked for help from fellow Loungers in the Social Media forum. Turns out, another good question is how many of your devices and accounts share the same sign-in as your Skype account. Even your TV might announce your nonpresent presence. Follow the thread.

The following links are this week’s most interesting Lounge threads, including several new questions for which you might have answers:

Office Applications    
General Productivity Nuance and Canon multifunction machines don’t work together
Word Processing DOC files to PDFs

Spreadsheets
