Another primarily UK-biased post for which I apologise for; this is old news but still very much valid. Microsoft and WebFusion partnered up some time ago to provide free web hosting to all British students.
Charlie Osborne talks about (and to) the next generation of IT users.

There has been for some while “heated debates” amongst fellow blogospherians (probably not a word, don’t comment and bitch about it please) about all these cloud services we’re hearing about. First we had Windows Live SkyDrive which now offers 5GB of storage space, and rumours of GDrive keep hitting the news.
I was looking through the Channel 8 Students Union earlier on and noticed an important point concerning search engines. It's widely known that search engines are the most viewed websites on the Internet because they are the starting point to look for something.
I'm really ill at the moment, so I'll post this for the time being and see how I get along in the next few days. This is how students truly feel about technology; once it's become obsolete or worthless, it's time to give up and find something new.
There seem to have been a few points made on my spelling and grammar; I endeavour to make my posts as accurate as possible, in language and facts, but sometimes some slip through. I'm not an English language student, but must point out my grammar skills excel most of my age through "text language" and local colloquialisms - just please be gentle.
Google are now offering a dedicated search engine which trawls through most university computer science web pages for the content you search for.As far as I can work out, it picks out any domain with .
A little off topic I'll admit, but it still contains "students" and "technology", which to me justifies this post. I'm not one to make harsh and unsubstantiated comments about something or someone, but this calls for an exception.
Most colleges and universities use Virtual Learning Environments (VLE) like Moodle, Blackboard and Dokeos and it's a great way to share information, collect coursework and essays, and keeping in touch with the students as well as the students keeping in touch with the lecturers. But using VLE solutions calls into question the end of the traditional lecture format.
So you're on your way to university and about to finish college or high school, but which one? There are so many universities out there, across the country and the globe, all offering the "best courses" and so many advantages.
From what we've seen of Windows 7, we've got multi-touch features and a new taskbar. Obviously because of the new way that Microsoft (*ahem* Sinfosky) is keeping the Windows family of products close to its chest, we don't really know what's going on with it, or what it can offer.
