Outlook.com is Microsoft's free emai service available for eveyrone to use. The service enables you to create a free email alias for use around the web and beyond, but it was also possible to add your own domain (example being forename@surname.com). This option was removed and Microsoft has recently sent out an email to remind consumers that if they already have a custom domain configured, they'll no longer be able to manage that domain and its accounts.

The only possible solution is to upgrade to the Office 365 business subscriptions. Luckily, they're giving away a free 90-day trial of the Office suite, but there is a way to remain on Outlook.com with your unique email domain if you don't need to add and/or remove new accounts. Head past the break for more details.

Most likely, if you are working online with office documents, you and your friends are using Google’s Docs service. While the web-based office suite from Google has served a good purpose since February 2006, when the service was integrated into the major suite of Google Apps, it might be time to move over in 2014 and let Microsoft's Office Online suite (officeonline.com) truly shine.

The main complaint from users of Google Docs that you often hear is that it feels like a stripped down or light version of Microsoft Office. While Microsoft has had an online Office suite for a while now, it was buried within their OneDrive web interface. Now though, the company has launched its own site and revamped the service.

Here are the top five reasons you should be using Office Online instead of Google Docs to accompany your other devices.
