Dinosaur Sightings: Computers from the 1970s

Dinosaur Sightings: Computers from the 1970s

During the disco days of the 1970s, personal computers moved out of the electronic hobbyist's garage or basement and into the office, classroom, and family den. This gallery showcases several 1970-era machines from Steven Stengel's vintage computer collection. Steven has graciously allowed us to republish his photos and descriptions. You can find a much more detailed description of each machine and additional photos of Steven's collection on his Web site oldcomputers.net.

Outlook 2007 Beta 2 Screenshots

The general feel of Microsoft Office 2007 beta 2 is very similar to Office 2003, which means there will not be a significant learning curve for those making the migration. One noticeable feature change is the tighter integration of Tasks and To Do Lists with the rest of the normal views. This comes in the form of a To Do Bar that sits on the outside of Outlook's main window no matter what internal view you may be using --- Mail, Calendar, Contacts, or Tasks. So no matter where you are in Outlook you can see what it is you are supposed to be doing.
