Microsoft has released new updates for the 2011 and 2008 editions of Office for Mac. The 2011 update, v14.1.3, solves a bevy of problems, including documents not opening in some browsers. The bulk of fixes appear to be directed at Outlook, targeting issues such as contact images not displaying in the Contacts Search box. The email client has had import from Mail disabled under Lion, however, since the option "does not work as expected" under Apple's new OS, according to Microsoft.
Entourage has left an uncertain future for itself with a notice that it had shut down its e-book store. The shop is now giving those who had bought content until May 27 to download their titles before all servers are taken down. The company is steering Edge users towards Google eBooks for the bulk of their content.
Microsoft has released a new version of Office 2008 for Mac, 12.2.9. The patch is mostly a maintenance update, fixing security vulnerabilities in Excel, PowerPoint and the suite as whole. It likewise copes with issues that can potentially trigger program crashes.
Entourage has launched its Pocket eDGE dual touchscreen tablet, which Electronista first had a hands-on experience with in early January. It incorporats a monochrome 6-inch Wacom Penabled E ink panel on the left and a 7-inch color resistive touchscreen display on the right. Like the prototype that we examined at CES, it is still running Android 1.6 as well as Embedded Linux, although the trackball on the right has now been replaced by an optical touchpad.
Entourage after an unintentional reveal this weekend today confirmed details of the Pocket Edge. Its much smaller Android e-reader has a six-inch, older generation E Ink touch display on the left and a seven-inch touchscreen LCD on the right. While the performance is the same, Entourage told Digital Reader that it will come in both a 3G edition for Verizon and a Wi-Fi-only model for everyone else.
Plans to launch an Entourage Pocket Edge e-reader on Verizon were inadvertently validated on Friday after a visit to Marvell by California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger showed the device. The video (below) from Forbes shows a device clearly labeled as the "Verizon Pocket Edge" held by the legendary actor and by itself. It clearly has much smaller screens, likely six inches for one and seven inches for the other versus the 9.7 inches on both sides of the original, and as hinted by its carrier link would have built-in EVDO for 3G.
What is being described as a trusted source has informed PhoneArena of a number of upcoming smartphones and tablets at Verizon. The report says September will see the release of the Motorola Droid 2 World Edition. This would be the first Android-powered global handset, and will be available in black/blue as well as white. Many of these rumored releases are supplemented by earlier news.
Secretive tech startup Kakai is developing a rival to the Kindle for the classroom, according to a scoop. The as yet unnamed and unseen device would be a dual-screen Linux tablet with support for gesture-based touch. It would be pitched as a hybrid e-reader and notepad, and would have both software and web access that makes it simpler to load textbooks.
Microsoft has released updates to its Mac software, Entourage and Office 2008. Office v12.2.4 offers several improvements to overall stability and performance. The company has also included a number of fixes that address security vulnerabilities, helping to prevent an attacker from overwriting the computer's memory using malicious code.
More information has been gleaned about the Entourage eDGe we had a chance to play with at CES thanks to an interview with the company's President and CEO as well as the VP of Marketing. Speaking to E-ReaderInfo, President Asghar Mostafa and Doug Atkinson have revealed that their device, which has both an E-Ink screen and a traditional LCD, has a 16-hour battery life when operating with the paper screen itself.
