Update: More Office Woes

 My latest column (subscription only; very sorry) was about Microsoft Office 2003 and how, despite all the upgrades, a lot of old bugs never get fixed. That and why does every new feature appear to be more of a money spinning operation than a time saver?
 
Anyway, I’m not the only grumbler: Chris Pirillo, of Lockergnome fame, is also having problems, with Outlook 2003. “If you rely on POP3 or IMAP, you’ll be just as disappointed with the lame UI bugs and inconsistencies that plague Microsoft’s latest client”.

If you want to stay on top of what’s available from Amazon here’s a great way to do it, courtesy of one of the best technology ‘news you can use’ sources out there: Lockergnome. Chris Pirillo, who runs Lockergnome, has set up Rich Site Summary (RSS) feeds  — if you’re not sure what those are, check out my recent column on the topic — of new products on Amazon.com, from baby gear to videogames, all organized into topics.
