Still no MobileMe sync with Outlook. Wonder if that'll ever see the light of day?

Yup...still looking for CalDAV support which by the way would also provide support for those people using Google's web-based products.

Yup. Wot a joke. Honestly I don't know who to blame though. MobileMe doesn't work with 64-bit Office on Windows. Outlook 2011 just plain doesn't work.

Apple has certainly been presented with an unprecedented opportunity, assuming of course they have the will to take advantage of it...

First of all, it's called iWork. Second, it's been out for a number of years. But, sure, put it on a shiny new device and I guess it's the best thing since sliced bread.

Outlook aside, I think Word, Excel, and PowerPoint 2011 are great products that really give Pages and Numbers a run for their money (not Keynote, though.)

I saw this on my MSDN subscriber downloads and have been very pleased that I took the time to check it out!

I see there’s a lot of hate going on here. I have to say, I love my Mac, and I love my iPod touch, but I just got Office 2011 a little bit ago, and really it’s damn good. I was pretty anti-Office before, and I have iWork ’09, but Office 2011 has just been really nice.

I prefer Keynote over PowerPoint, but for word processing I still prefer MS Word, and you just can't beat Excel as a spreadsheet workhorse in my opinion.

I actually have to say I tried change a Numbers spreadsheet I’ve been using to Excel (both by exporting and by manually recreating it), and it just hasn’t been as nice. Granted this is a very specific case, and I’m sure Excel is more powerful. But things like having checkboxes, and multiple tables on one sheet, and simple conditional formatting are really nice.

I wholeheartedly agree. Office 2011 for Mac is real nice. So is iWork. Great competition there.

MS Office has been used by businesses the world over for over two decades. Do let us know when iWork ever reaches that level of maturity and critical scrutiny.

iWork on the iPad plain sucks. A solution in search of a problem to fix.

Outlook opportunity to fix it missed

Still no fixes for basic errors on Outlook:

1) Synching still not working well (even via Address book and iCal) to Mobile Me. Phone categories still do not match and if no match, phone number is not imported. MS should realise a Mac product has to conform to Mac rules.
2) Signatures not fixed. Signature button still adds signatures instead of changing/replacing from default which is the logical way and the way it worked in Entourage.
3) Still no Re-Send message button.
4) Did not really expect it yet but promised stationery/templates still not present.

Not too impressive from world's largest software company and for a very expensive product.
