In a weird new commercial Microsoft pit Office 365 against Office 2019 in an obvious ploy to sell more subscriptions.
Unsurprisingly, in the new ads, which give the
actors twins various challenges to perform in the likes of Word, Excel and PowerPoint, Office 365 beats Office 2019 every time. Yawn. The ads aren’t very good and you will cringe a few times…
Hint: You can directly buy Office 365 in the new Mac apps.
Microsoft upgraded Office 365 with Dark Mode in Mojave and compatibility with the Apple’s Continuity Camera tool, plus some smaller changes.
The Outlook and Gmail email message management tool Boomerang has a new feature for its Mac users: Inbox Pause. The feature lets you temporarily pause incoming messages so you aren’t distracted while working, plus you can set a schedule for when email doesn’t come in and set messages to override pause times based on sender, keywords, and domains. You can download and try it for free at the Boomerang website.
New features include the ability to schedule email delivery, request read receipts, and easily create calendar events from email messages.
