    You Will Be Assimilated.....

    Microsoft's plan calls for a number of new software and hardware packages for desktops and laptops, but mobile users will see benefits, too.

    Under this plan, there will be two different types of servers handling different types of communications.

    Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 unified messaging will combine email, voice mail, and faxes into one Inbox. This upcoming version will include a speech-based auto attendant, allowing users to have their email read to them from any phone.

    Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 will handle VoIP call management; audio and video conferencing, and instant messaging.

    It will work with Microsoft Office Communicator 2007, a software client that will will give users access to the services provided by the server. Microsoft has promised there will be a Windows Mobile version of this application, and, as part of this announcement, Motorola said it will create mobile devices based on Office Communications Server 2007 and Office Communicator Mobile.

    I really can't imagine trying to sort through 30 emails by listening to them being read to me over a phone. Especially when a good percentage can be spam. Imagine having the porn adverisements read to you over a speaker phone?

    Is it just me or does anyone else get the impression that Microsoft has come to the realization that they have already put every feature you could want into an email, word processor, and spreadsheet application? So now they are just grasping for any type of off the wall feature to put into Office 2007 just desperately hoping that one of them might somehow hit?!? I am starting to realize why Wall St has forsaken them lately.
    ROOTING for WebOS makes me more sympathetic to Cubs fans.

    Or....they have copied every feature that could be put into these applications and copied every application that they can bundle into the OS.....now that there's no one left around to copy, other than amrkets they haven't been able to bust, best they can come up with is Bob and these kinda things.

    Gaaah. One inbox. That's one "feature" of the Blackberry that really bugged me. Intentional and deliberate clutter. Did I say Gaaaaah! enough yet?

    My 650 does it right: text messages handled in a superb fashion (threading = way, way cool) and I know there's a text message waiting because Mr. Treo tells me so. Email handled in a superb fashion because there's a dedicated app that does it right.

    I'm not saying that the Grand Unified Theory of Inboxes isn't valid. I'm just saying Microsoft should listen to Albert Einstein (a guy who was almost as smart as Bill Gates) and his advice, "Make verything as simple as possible, but not simpler."

    You're one of the smart ones. We use Notes where I work and the reliability is top notch. Much better than any of the Exchange shops I've been in.

    I still wonder how Exchange got to split the market with the likes of Notes and even GroupWise. It is such a poor server side app only helped by the thing called Outlook, which I never understood fully.
