    That looks great. Best new of the day so far.

    For what it is work Microsoft do makesome of the best 'office' based software and I think Apple should just ditch iWork and ensure that Microsoft continue with Office beyond 2008.

    So muchh for iWork '07 anyway!

    Thanks for the info, BV.

    Interesting little teaser there at the end of the article about a new "My Day" app that will come with Office 2008. One thing that Entourage 2004 lacks (as compared to Outlook) is the "Outlook Today" view that kind-of sums up everything -- I hope that's what this will be.

    Any more screenshots of this? The one in the article of PPT '08 looks interesting. It wouldn't take much more than a monkey with a compiler to make a better GUI for PPT:Mac, I can't stand the 2004 version.

    Finally, some worthwhile software announcements coming out of Macworld. :rolleyes:
