Microsoft Office Outlook 2007

If you work with Microsoft Outlook on a daily basis, this upgrade can make scheduling simpler and e-mailing more interesting. Still, we wish Instant Search and e-mail rendering were better.

iWork '06
REVIEW

iWork '06

Overall, Apple iWork '06 is a compelling package, though mostly due to Keynote 3. Keynote 3 is a better tool than PowerPoint, and Pages 2 offers some intriguing new features, though professional users will still yearn for Adobe FrameMaker.

REVIEW

CorelDraw Graphics Suite 12.0

Mid- to high-level graphics professionals will like this package, but it's overkill for just touching up photos and drawing organizational charts.
