7 Excel tips for huge spreadsheets: Split Screen, Freeze Panes, Format Painte...

The bigger and uglier your Excel spreadsheet gets, the more you need to use certain features or tricks to keep a handle on the data. The seven features covered here will help you navigate, organize, and readjust your spreadsheet with as little hassle as possible.

1. Split Screen

One of the most helpful features for large spreadsheets is the Split Screen command. The Split Screen allows you to view two, three, or four windows of your spreadsheet. Use this feature to work on one section of your spreadsheet while you view another section; or use it to compare (side by side) two sections of the spreadsheet. Once you try it, you'll find lots of reasons to use it.

Android TV to get a major overhaul at just the right time

Google was ahead of the curve when it launched Android TV in 2014. Instead of just presenting users with a list of streaming-app icons, Android TV's big idea involved a row of recommendations from across different apps. The hope was that users wouldn't have to leave the home screen to find something to watch.

But being first isn't the same as being best, and over the past few years, other platforms such as Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Roku have all done a better job with cross-app recommendations. Meanwhile, Android TV's approach didn't get much buy-in from app makers, and the platform as a whole seemed to stagnate.

How Thunderbolt 3 won the port wars

Intel's dream of making one cable to rule them all took a huge step forward this week.On Wednesday, Intel announced it will integrate Thunderbolt 3 into future CPUs. More importantly, the company said it would open up the long-secret protocol to the world, royalty-free.

The company's explanation for the change is practically utopian. "Intel's vision for Thunderbolt was not just to make a faster computer port, but a simpler and more versatile port available to everyone," wrote Chris Walker, Intel's vice president for Client Computing, in a blog post.

Walker predicted a groundswell of Thunderbolt products. "We envision a future where high-performance single-cable docks, stunning photos and 4K video, lifelike VR, and faster-than-ever storage are commonplace.A world where one USB-C connector does it all?today, and for many years to come."

Samsung Galaxy Gear 360: Great for the Galaxy S8, not so much for the iPhone

When the Galaxy S8 was unveiled in late March, it wasn?t the only premium product in Samsung?s catalog that received a massive overhaul. The Gear 360 camera also got an impressive redesign, turning it from a somewhat clumsy sphere into a neatly pocketable stick.

But the 360?s case isn?t the only thing that changed. The device?s cameras have actually been downgraded?from dual 15MP fisheye lenses to dual 8.4MP fisheye lenses. Still, despite the lesser lenses, the Gear 360 is now able to record in 4K or broadcast live in 2K. Additionally, an updated Gear 360 app makes the new hardware compatible with a wider range of phones, including the iPhone. Beyond all of that, the new Gear 360 uses USB-C instead of microUSB, and there?s still a slot for an SD card.

Tannenberg expands Verdun's World War I horrors to the Eastern front

I still love Verdun. While Battlefield 1 is surprisingly excellent, its take on World War I is still all explosions and Hollywood glitz, glamorous even in its ugliest moments. Verdun always felt like a more realistic representation--grim, not shy about showing the horrors of the Great War.

And so I?m excited by today?s news that developers Blackmill Games and M2H are working on a sequel/standalone expansion, Tannenberg. I was worried the big-budget competition from Battlefield 1 might?ve scared the devs out of the World War I space, but apparently not. Here?s the first teaser:

Meridian Audio Explorer2 USB DAC review: An inexpensive path to high-resoluti...

Meridian?s Explorer2 portable digital-to-audio converter can play virtually any type of high-resolution audio file, but its most compelling feature is its ability to decode MQA files.

For me, MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) was the best thing to come out of CES 2015. Developed by Meridian Audio, a company with a long track record developing high-resolution audio technology, MQA makes it possible for consumers to hear music that?s not only better than CD quality, but the same quality that the artist heard when they recorded it in the studio. And the artist can attest to that because MQA files include a digital fingerprint that indicates the artist, recording engineer, or producer has verified that what you?re hearing was sourced from the studio master.

BrandPost: IT Orchestration Takes The Field

In 2015, a professional football team asked us to help upgrade their stadium with a wireless network built to handle over 70,000 fans and increased usage during upcoming college and professional championship games. It was a tall order, and IT Orchestration by CDW? delivered.

Connectivity Wins Out

Greater Capacity: The new network allows fans to drive more than 6.2 terabytes of data through over 30,000 individual devices.

BrandPost: Identity Management + Mobility Management = Mobile Productivity

Enabling mobile productivity is a common goal of organizations across a wide variety of industries.

According to the research firm Forrester, 56 percent of companies list increasing operational efficiency among their top three goals for mobility initiatives.

And yet, many organizations simply aren?t giving users the tools they need to be productive outside of the office. Forrester finds that fewer than 10 percent of organizations provide access to Windows tools, enterprise data or remote support services on users? personal mobile devices, and fewer than one quarter support the same tools on enterprise devices.

A favorite camera among business people and Twitch streamers alike is on sale today at Amazon for a really great price. The online retailer has the Logitech C920 webcam on sale for $50. That's the lowest price we've seen over the webcam's lifespan and currently about $12 cheaper than other retailers.

The sale is scheduled to last until just before midnight Thursday morning or when supplies run out.

Despite being around for years, the Logitech C920is still a popular choice--even with the release of Logitech'sC922 and 4K-friendly Brio 4K Pro. That staying power owes to the device's quality. It has1080p video capture, and you can run at 1080p during Skype for Windows calls and through broadcast apps like OBS. (That's despite Logitech only stating official 1080p support within Skype for Windows.)

BrandPost: Why You Need A Comprehensive Security Assessment

It could be a link in an email, a compromised vendor account or a stolen smartphone. Even as organizations get smarter about guarding their information systems and data, attackers inevitably find new ways in.

Despite sophisticated security systems, many enterprises can still be vulnerable. The U.S. Office of Personnel Management learned that lesson when attackers got past its intrusion detection and prevention system and accessed the personal data of 21.5 million people. For each of the 169 million data records that were publicly breached in 2015, countless others have fallen victim to cyber criminals without detection.

BrandPost: Can New IT Strategies Improve Your Bottom Line?

IT departments are feeling the pressure. Organizations expect their IT teams to take advantage of powerful new technologies to improve productivity and deliver advanced capabilities. Meanwhile, spending on legacy equipment is steadily declining, challenging IT staff to maintain existing operations and services at acceptable levels, while also investigating promising new solutions. This environment demands a logical approach: Organizations must devise an IT strategy that allows them to do more with less.

"Organizations today face static-to-declining IT budgets ? especially compared with the growing data set they must manage ? and therefore must look at cutting costs in all areas," says Lee Caswell, vice president of VMware's products, storage and availability business unit.

Audio-Technica ATH-AG1X review: A good gaming headset with one killer flaw

Do a search for the best gaming headset, and you'll see a common refrain pop up in forums: ?Don?t buy a gaming headset. They?re overpriced garbage! Spend your money on a good pair of headphones and a standalone microphone from a reputable company instead.?

But reputable companies do make their own gaming headsets. I decided to investigate if these would be any better than the offerings from companies like Logitech, Corsair, and Razer. In this first round of examination, I looked at the Sennheiser's latest Game Zero and GSP 350 models, and Audio-Technica's ATH-AG1X.
