Outlook 2013 spurns your old Word and Excel documents

DM2
Alert

ReadMe.txt

It seems that some of you fellow commentards are not understanding the story. It is only Outlook 2013 that will not support the importing of .doc/.xls files - hardly a major feature! Excel and Word 2013 will still open these documents so worry not about the millions of old Office files stored on servers - they will not need converting!

Seasons greetings!

Static IP

When the service comes back on it is with a dymanic IP. Restart the router to revert to your static IP.

Redundancy doesn't have to be negative!

Interesting stats...

I get your point... I was being overly simplistic (to a degree on purpose) but your stats do point to Macs being a rather minor part of the pie. Furthermore, if we look at revenue rather than units sold, all those itune and app sales that come as a consequence of iphone/ipad/ipod sales make Mac desktop/laptop sales look even more insignificant.

I'm sure some shareholders out there would not care too much about Macs if they can come up with more money making machines like handhelds. Hats off to their incredidle success but let's recognise where the profits are being made.

Apple

Isn't Apple just becoming a mobile phone / mobile app vendor anyway? Surely that is where they make all their cash nowadays.

Acer Timeline 8371

I would take a look at the above (or 8471 if you want a DVD drive). Battery life is great, the specs are better and the price is lower. Importantly, it comes with w7 pro - the Dell comes with Home edition which I think excludes it from being classed as a business machine especially when doing comparisons.
