CNET's supertelegenic Natali Del Conte got a Microsoft-sponsored visit from Entourage star Jeremy Piven to talk up Office Live Workspaces. But as Natali said in an email: "They don't use Workspaces. Microsoft just got them to say that they will. I don't understand why Microsoft would have such a non sequitur way to promote this product. The product is good. Why bother with this nonsense?"
Indeed, Office Live Workspaces makes Google Docs look like Google 20 Percent of Microsoft Office. It even works on a Mac, so the Entourage guys need only fire up Firefox to use it. If Natali — who since January has appeared on CNBC , The CW, Fox Business News, ABC, Reuters, WNBC, and BBC TV twice before I stopped counting — likes it, what further celebrity endorsement do you need?
