Free Windows Desktop Software Security List.

The New Screen Savers - is a variety show for tech on the TWiT network.
Microsoft Office Lens - is a handy capture app that turns your smartphone into a pocket scanner. It crops, straightens, enhances, and makes pictures of whiteboards and documents readable. Office Lens is available for IOS, Android and Windows Phone.
Microsoft Office Sway - is an entirely different way to express yourself and bring your ideas to life. When your ideas are born, you want to explore, visualize and share them—quickly and easily, wherever you happen to be, and on whatever device you have. You want your ideas to be understood. Sway helps you do just that. It’s a new way for you to create a beautiful, interactive, web-based expression of your ideas, from your phone or browser.
Sample Sway’s:
A Travel Log -
A College Report -
Mary Jo Foley - Vietnam Vacation

Sway iPhone App

Viruses and Malware Definitions: (Although this talks about Surface Pro 3; it’s still applicable to all Windows users.)
