Technology to warm your heart — it works

Kathleen Atkins

Lounge member t8ntlikly needs to share a OneNote file with a known scatterbrain and is tired of sending and resending links that are lost and lost again.

Fortunately, he also has SkyDrive — and a good friend in the Lounge offering him excellent suggestions for the sensible use of OneNote and SkyDrive. Lots of us could benefit from this file-sharing method.

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