You may already have Office and space 'in-the-cloud' for free

I'm not kidding.

If you have an Xbox, or a Windows 8 computer, or a Windows phone, you have something (now) called OneDrive (formerly called SkyDrive). Just by signing up, you get 7GB right off the bat. If you bought Office 365, you get 100GB for free.

OneDrive also lets you upload photos from any type of phone. (including iPhone - I just backed up my entire camera roll)

If you have OneDrive or have a Microsoft account such as, you also have access to something (now) called Office Online (formerly called Office Web Apps). This is a free, scaled down version of Word, Excel, OneNote and PowerPoint.

All free. All you need is an internet connection.
