    Beware early adopter stability issues and problems with product activation, November 12, 2010

    amd “amazon35″ (Florida, United States) –

    This review is from: Office for Mac 2011 Home & Student -Family Pack (3Macs/3User) [Old Version] (Software)

    Office 2011 has a number of new, very useful features, and is a refinement over the previous edition of Office for Mac. The program is cleaner in appearance and much faster to load. There are two glaring issues, however, that would lead me to STRONGLY advise against purchase of the software at this time. First, there are widespread issues with product activation. Office 2011 comes with a new “activation PIN” that must be activated by the sale merchant (similar to how a giftcard will not work unless they scan it at the register). You are then required to enter the PIN on Microsoft’s website, at which point (if all has gone well), you will receive your product ID (CD key) that you then use to install the software. In theory, the process should be painless—but Microsoft has been having issues nationwide with activation of the PIN (even if you pay for the software) and I had to deal with about a week’s worth of hassles and e-mails/phone calls between Microsoft and my vendor before I could get my legitimately bought-and-paid-for software installable on my computer.

    Second, despite its flashiness and cosmetic improvements, this software is just not ready for prime-time in terms of stability. This is an essential point for anyone that works on important (or long) documents–you do not want to risk using this product, because it has not been adequately beta-tested or debugged, and the development team and Microsoft have not provided its customers the courtesy nor respect in ensuring data loss is minimized when using their software. The previous version of Office for Mac has been out for a while and has had hundreds if not thousands of megabytes worth of updates and patches over the years, which makes it relatively reliable to work on. Prior to purchasing Office 2011, you should be aware that there are significant stability issues with MS Excel that make even window-rendering painfully (and reproducibly) difficult (this is on a well-equipped Core i7 Macbook Pro)–where the screen stutters and ghosts when you try and resize documents, for example. MS Word has a glaring bug in it that causes it to, at times, abruptly quit, or worse, convert lengthy documents into asterisks without warning (or option for recovery). Microsoft has been notified of these issues but it is unclear whether or if they are working on solutions. I would recommend sticking with the previous iteration of MS Office, wait for at least 6-8 months prior to purchasing this, or use something alternatively that has an established track record of stability, ease-of-use, and features, such as Apple’s iWork.

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program (What’s this?)

    UPDATE: Outlook is now included! Yay! Thank you Microsoft! It does cost extra, but that is to be expected.

    I work with legal documents that have stringent formatting requirements, so for a word processing program on my Mac to actually help me it has to preserve formatting across conversions. This does. I’m not a huge power user. I’m a disabled former lawyer who helps out with cases from my former law office when my old colleagues are extra busy or want help for a new associate. I am nearly always working with documents that have been formatted by someone else, and it’s my job to return those documents with that formatting intact.

    Which just doesn’t happen with most Mac versions of Windows programs.

    Which is why I run a copy of Windows on the Mac Mini I have in the living room and a Windows-based copy of Office in that partition.

    But I’m not going to need to switch off my laptop to help revise a brief or check a motion. I can copy captions and have them come out the way they went in. My son has had similar issues converting his schoolwork back and forth, and he, too, is much happier with the new version of Office.

    The updated User Interface is interactive without being annoying, and the programs feel refreshed without having a steep learning curve price to pay for the improvements. Excel now has a mini-graphing feature that can show you patterns in your data in real time. Powerpoint is cool. It’s not something I’ve used professionally, ever, but it really is easy and fun to put together presentations.

    The price is not cheap, even for three licenses. I would deduct half a star, if I could, for price gouging. But if you need true compatibility with work or school pcs running appropriately licensed Office programs, this is a much easier and less expensive way to get it than installing Windows on your Mac and running the pc version of the program. I’m using the Home and Student version, which works just fine for what I need (word processing and light number crunching for my “work” as a classroom parent at my kid’s school and occasionally helping my old colleagues). If you are looking to use the program commercially, you should get the business version.

    Excel 2011 is Unintuitive and Unstable, October 28, 2010

    This review is from: Office for Mac 2011 Home & Student -Family Pack (3Macs/3User) [Old Version] (Software)

    I just purchased this as an upgrade to MS Office 2004. First thing I did was to open a spreadsheet from Excel 2004. It gave me an error of “File error: data may have been lost.”, which it does every time I open up this file. I’m not sure yet why it is having this problem.

    So, then I proceeded to create my very first new spreadsheet with Excel 2011. I’ve locked up Excel twice so far–my first hour of use and it has already crashed two times!

    I have, btw, a brand new 27″ iMac with the latest Snow Leopard on it–this is as good as it gets for an OS and machine platform to run it on.

    I’ve also noticed it getting confused several times and garbling text elements on charts when I do something to the data format elsewhere on the chart. Even if it did work, the UI is convoluted and confusing. I could probably get used to it in time, but there’s nothing elegant about how they’ve constructed their UI.

    There are also some obvious bugs that (as a software developer myself) I am amazed could make it into a released version of software. When you enter a label for a data series on a chart, for instance, Excel automatically adds double quotes around it the next time you edit it. If you then edit the contents inside the double quotes again, Excel will add an additional pair of double quotes around the first pair that it added, and then proceed to display your chart with visible quotes around all of the values! This is the sort of bug that should have been found during unit testing by whatever developer was writing that feature. If one of my software developers were to miss something like that, I’d be annoyed–and if my system test team missed something like that for a release, I’d want to assemble a new team.

    I had much higher hopes for this–thinking that it at least shouldn’t be nearly as buggy as older versions. Yet so far, it’s far less stable than Excel 2004 (I haven’t tested Word and PP yet). It’s just not a quality piece of software.

    What a Tiny Book! Is That All There Is To It?, July 14, 2003
    By 
    Miles Sonkin (Osaka, Japan) –

    This review is from: E-Newsletters That Work: The Small Business Owner’s Guide To Creating, Writing and Managing An Effective Electronic Newsletter (Paperback)

    It’s the smallest book I had seen on anything related to the Internet and I had a whole lot of BIG problems with my e-newsletter that I needed solved.

    I finished reading it in an hour or so.

    Type a few extra words here, click a few buttons there, start a better (read simple and profitable) business relationship over here, and BINGO! Big problems are all gone, bye-bye.

    Yes, the book is funny; Michael Katz is a very witty guy.
    Yes, the book is easy to understand; the author has laid the whole thing out in a “FAQ” format and has obviously had it proof-read by a smart 8-year old to make sure he has communicated all his points as clearly as possible.
    And Yes, Yes, Yes, the book is not obsolete within 3 minutes of publication; the typical fate of anything related to the Internet. The material deals with Internet publishing on a level that makes it virtually timeless.

    I wish every business book I purchased made as much sense, solved as many of my business problems as quickly, and made me WANT to write a review that glows in the dark!

    BUY THIS BOOK! It’s worth your money.

    WOW! The BEST guide to e-newsletters!, March 26, 2003

    This review is from: E-Newsletters That Work: The Small Business Owner’s Guide To Creating, Writing and Managing An Effective Electronic Newsletter (Paperback)

    This is an amazing guide. It’s a quick read, yet has some amazing advice on everything A to Z you need to know to start an email newsletter. This book even tells you when you should outsource it and when you should try to do it yourself.

    The idea on page 79 about having friends promote your newsletter for you is worth the entire price of the book!

    Don’t think about starting an email newsletter without first reading this book.

    A couple of points …, July 21, 2004
    By 
    Chicagoan (Chicago) –

    This review is from: E-Newsletters That Work: The Small Business Owner’s Guide To Creating, Writing and Managing An Effective Electronic Newsletter (Paperback)

    First, just to clarify, this is a book for people who own a small business and want to start an e-newsletter (written & edited by themselves) about it; it’s not a book for people looking for information on getting into the business of producing e-newsletters.

    Second, I found some of the advice … well, here’s an example:

    In a chapter titled “What do I do if I can’t write?” the author says “The most effective e-newsletters are those that sound as if the company leader is just talking, filled with all the slang, run on sentences and joking around that comes out in person.”

    That just doesn’t sound right. It would have been nice to see an example from a highly successful e-newsletter in this style, but the author doesn’t provide any examples to support this assertion(or any of the other dubious-sounding bits of advice in the book).
