Tobin Solutions Celebrates 17 Years!

In 1995, I was working at Firstar Information Services Corporation, a subsidiary of Firstar Bank (now US Bank). I worked in a department called Technology Research and Architecture. We were the frontline on evaluating and integrating new technology for the bank. One of my last projects at the bank was evaluating Windows 95. I remember thinking that now computers were going to be so easy to use that the small business customers I'd been helping on the side would no longer need my services. Man, was I wrong!

Windows 8.1 - No Worries

A year after Microsoft's release of Windows 8 to much fanfare and subsequent disappointment, Windows 8.1 has been released to fix some of the most common complaints - especially around the start button and desktop. And to a great degree, they have. Beginning with Windows 7, Microsoft's flagship desktop operating system emerged as one of the most reliable and solid versions yet.Windows 8 leveraged that solid core. Windows 8 and 8.1 are both solid and reliable - no issues there.

Access 2013 and Office 365 SharePoint

In reviewing some of the features of the latest version of Microsoft Office 2013, I thought I'd see what's new with Microsoft Access. I was pleased with what I found. Many organizations use the Access database system every day to track and report on important business data. It may seem old-school for some but it's still a powerful tool that isn't going away anytime soon. However One missing feature of prior versions of Access has been an easy way to access (no pun intended) the database from the web.
