Word-Soon Still More Bloated - Mac Applications & Software

Just when you thought it was impossible for Microsoft to make Word any more bloated, they come up with yet another feature: http://www.cbronline.com/todaysnews/a4908a7b4d67600d80256db90018c59f Yep, now you'll be able to order a book from Amazon from inside Word (Office 2003 anyway). And, gosh and golly, Microsoft isn't even going to charge for it. What will be next? --MP -- **************** Preorder Lord of the Ring DVDs and videos. http://www.inklingbooks.com/ ****************...

    Well, I don't know... that sounds like a pretty good feature to me... I could

    How about banner ads in Word. Click on the ad and your checking account
