    "It's what's cool on the Web; all in one place and made by YOU.

    Montage is a flexible web-based service that makes it fun and easy to create and share a visual album of the web on the topics you care about. You can design your Montage around any topic you can imagine by adding content that pulls information from a variety of sources, including RSS feeds, Twitter, Bing News, and YouTube. Montage is an expression of you. "

    This is a very nice blogging application. Would be nice if it were multiplatform. Microsoft gets a lot of heat for crappy things but this one of the things coming out that is actually fairly good.

How to fix Microsoft Word's spell-checker. - By Chris Wilson - Slate Magazine - 0 views

  •  
    There's no reason why spell-check dictionaries need to be so behind the times. All the technology to build a relevant, timely spelling database already exists in search engines like Google and Microsoft's own Live Search, which have a vast vocabulary of words and names and update their dictionaries in near real time. Microsoft Word may not have heard of Marky Mark, but a Live Search or a Google query for Mark Walberg includes results for the actor, who has an "h" in his last name.

Office 2008 vs. iWork vs. NeoOffice vs. OpenOffice - 0 views

  •  
    One man's opinion: The more I use these, the more I really don't care for iWork. Sure, Keynote makes some darned pretty presentations, but NeoOffice (and OpenOffice for the matter) cuts the mustard quite handily. For real polish, you still can't beat Office 2007/2008, as much as I hate to admit it. What do you think? Oo.org 3.0 looks to rock out loud too. Is iWork irrelevant, or is it just me? Reread the repost below and I'll give this some more thought next week when I'm back from vacation.
