Ray Ozzie talks about how mobile apps should act. Yeah! I know Chris Pirillo hates Outlook 2003, but the new Outlook is freaking awesome. It doesn't barf when you leave a wireless node. It doesn't slow you down. It doesn't crash. Why? Cause it pretends it's always offline. And wait until you see how it allows you to get your email without signing into a VPN anymore. It's the first Microsoft app that I've seen that really groks what Web Services are there for: to get through the firewall!
If I weren't working at Microsoft I'd be buying Office 2003 when it comes out just to get the new Outlook. It's that good. No matter what Chris Pirillo says about it. 🙂 [The Scobleizer Weblog]
