By James Turner

This week, we ask if Apple's Siri has more than novelty value, and decide it does. Open Office needs you (or at least your money) to stay afloat, and Google bends to developer pressure and finally adds SQL support to its cloud computing platform.

Developer Week in Review: The other shoe drops on iOS developers

If you were an iOS developer, you may have gotten to meet a process server in person this week, as Lodsys doles out the first batch of lawsuits. Oracle gave Apache the keys to OpenOffice, and told them to take it out for a spin, and your faithful editor vents about a commonly overused Java pattern.

Windows 7 Inside Track: Printer, Scanner, and Fax Installation

By William Stanek
October 27, 2010

Let's embark on what I'd like to call "Adventures in Printer, Scanner, and Fax Installation." Last Thanksgiving, I did something I rarely do: I went shopping on Black Friday. Picked up some great buys on USB flash drives, SDHC cards and a fantastic deal on a HP Officejet All-in-one. By now installing new devices, hardware and even entire systems is old hat around my house.

Robots on the March

By Rick Jelliffe
April 26, 2009

Reading Richard Hillesley's IBM, Sun and OpenOffice.org at IT PRO, I was struck at certain rather glib assertion: OpenOffice is more than adequate to the needs of the 95 per cent of users. This is the same thing we hear about Linux. But dare we ask what it if it isn't in fact true in some significant sense?

Can Microsoft's idea of "document archetypes" and "interoperable templates" be ramped up to provide a fresh new approach to both better document interoperability and better descriptive markup?

OpenOffice.org 3 Release Candidate 3 is available. So, I revisited OOo to see how it looks today (I commented on its Beta release back in May).

May 13, 2008

OpenOffice 3.0 for Mac Beta finally lets us run OOo without X11. It has some compatibility issues with Microsoft Office 2008 formats. But, it runs faster than Office 2008. And, the price is right. Read on a for a few more initial impressions of OOo 3.0 Beta for Mac.

Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac: What's New?

By Todd Ogasawara
January 16, 2008

Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac is out. And, here's what's new... Microsoft really likes to have multiple versions of the same product. There are five versions of Windows Vista. And, there will be eight versions of Windows Server 2008 when it is released. So, we should be happy there are only three versions of Office for Mac 2008 to choose from :-) All three versions come with the five core applications: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Entourage, and Messenger. Office for the Mac 2008 (which I'll call standard edition here) is US$399.95 (239.95 upgrade). Office 2008 for Mac Special Media Edition is $499.95 ($299.95 upgrade). And, Office for Mac 2008 Home and Student Edition is $149.95. The Media Edition adds the Microsoft Expression (60-day trial edition available). The Home and Student Edition doesn't have Office-specifc Automator Actions (more on this later) or the ability to work with Microsoft Exchange Server. However, it does provide three users licenses.
