Office 2010 is out in the market, on Microsoft’s volume license price lists and installed (at least in Office Starter
form) on many new PCs out there. But there are still a couple of complementary technologies that aren’t available yet.
I’m not talking about Office Web Apps, the free version of which is still missing some promised functionality
, as Microsoft itself has acknowledged. I’m talking about other related technologies of interest to both consumers and smaller business users.
One of these is the Facebook plug-in for the Outlook Social Connector
. Microsoft officials said in February of this year to expect that plug-in to be available in the first half of 2010. Yes, we’re only one day into the second half of this year, but all I can get (via a spokesperson) is the Facebook plug-in
is now coming in the second half of this year.
