It's only $39.97 to get Microsoft Office for life

Stop paying monthly for software you can get for life. Instead of paying the recurring cost of a Microsoft 365 Subscription, you can get a lifetime license to Microsoft Office Professional 2021 for Windows for $39.97 (reg. $219). 

This license gives you unlimited access to the full Office Pro 2021 suite of apps with no recurring costs. That includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Teams (free version), OneNote, Publisher, and Access. Each app can be installed on one PC one time. 

Keep in mind, this license is different from a Microsoft 365 subscription. You don't have to pay for your apps every month, but the tradeoff is they're slightly older

Faulty Windows cybersecurity update takes out banks, airlines and other major companies worldwide
A massive Microsoft Windows BSOD (blue screen of death) outage has impacted multiple companies worldwide including airlines, broadcasters and others. The problem was a caused by a faulty update from security giant CrowdStrike that forced PCs and servers into an unrecoverable boot loop. The change has since been rolled back, but many machines are still affected.

"[We have] identified a content deployment related to this issue and reverted those changes." The company went on to describe a workaround, which involves booting Windows into Safe Mode and deleting a specific driver. 

The issue forced Delta, Frontier and other airlines to ground flights, and impacted UK broadcaster Sky and the London Stock Exchange. On a Reddit thread, dozens of commenters stated that their companies were effectively offline due to the problem.
