Word Up! Word 2004, That Is
by Matt Neuburg, TidBITS
Word 2004 introduces no fundamental changes in behavior, and if you aren't having problems now, they may be no compelling reason to upgrade.

Oh dear, for some unknown reason, I woke up with this song stuck in my head.

In one word he told me the secret of success in mathematics: Plagiarize!

I wonder if my brain is telling me something that I should have know.

Remember why the good Lord made your eyes, so don't shade your eyes, but plagiarize, plagiarize, plagiarize...
