    One nice thing about Now is how it integrates a calendar item with the contacts. If I remember correctly, start typing in someone's name and it will auto fill all the contact information into the item.

    Also, it's extremely snappy and the sync is immediate compared to the Apple offerings.

    The only problem is its 1996 appearance. Other OS X developers try and succeed in implementing Aqua style, or at least a smooth layout similar to Address Book.

    On the Right Track

    Now is moving in the right direction and when it comes to the looks, they are well aware and are working hard on a radicle new version for next year. I have tried a lot of PIMís, and though there may be others out there, for a office that is cross platform, ONLY Now offers a way for us to stay synced together. For M$, you HAVE to have their server - not everyone has that. All I know is that I have an 6 year old G3 file server running the contact and calendar server for all users - Mac & PC - it is a great piece of software!
