From LiveSide - New version of Outlook Live for Windows Mobile available – for some. As part of the upcoming release of Exchange Server 2010, a new version of Outlook Live for Windows Mobile became available today. This new Outlook Live, formerly Exchange Labs and code named Skyline (not the Outlook Live that preceded Outlook Connector), is an installable client for any Windows Mobile 6.1 phone that uses Exchange Server 2010.
It seems like Windows Live Wave 4 is well underway, and the consolidation of Office Live and Live Mesh with Windows Live could only make it better.
Something I have had to do a lot of lately is install printers in home networks with 32bit and 64 bit machines running mixtures of Windows 7, Vista and XP. This article from Digital Inspiration succinctly explains how to get this to work. Share a Network Printer between x86 and x64 Windows Machines.
Outlook 2010 is going to be able to sync to the cloud and mobile devices so you can take it where ever you go. Thanks to Sarah for the tip.

Susan has a couple of articles I wanted to link to:
Nick MacKechnie reports on a task bar stacks program called 7Stacks that enhances the already useful task bar operations in Windows 7.
7Stacks also allows you to configure the stacks in three different formats: normal, grid, and menu. Normal displays a vertical stack, grid shows a square-shared grid of icons only, and menu is a cascading menu of items with very small icons labeled with text. Perhaps the nicest thing about 7Stacks, though, is the way it uses the Aero technology for displaying the stacks. This makes it look more like a feature included in Windows 7 itself and not some extra add-on program.
7Stacks is a free download available here.
Ok, not exactly, but… you can get the same effect using Microsoft Virtual PC with XP mode and run IE6 and IE7 as "virtual applications". You'll need to be running Windows 7 Ultimate and the free Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP Mode.
Full instructions on how to do this on West, Donavon West’s blog. We will be using this for sure!
