1-0 out of 5 stars Avoid the demo at least
I tried the demo v.6.005 on my Treo 600. Very impressive for the most part, but unlike the free bundled viewer it crashed very badly on an e-mailed native Word doc attachment. I actually had to do a hard reset and reinstall all my apps and data from scratch. This is a very impressive piece of software, but hard crashes like these (which I subsequently re-tested and found repeatable) aren't really acceptable. Verdict: don't use this if you plan to travel away from your hotsync PC for any length of time!

2-0 out of 5 stars unsuable
documents to go compresses my power point slides to the level where the graphics and text are literally unreadable. space on my memory stick is not tight so I would rather have the raw data, but i found no way to change this. a 15 meg document is compressed down to 580k, of course the quality is terrible.

3-0 out of 5 stars Beware of versions!!!
I recently bought a Palm Zire 71 and found it to be everything I could ever want out a PDA, except for the fact that it lacked the proper software to load Microsoft Word Documents. Happily, I found the DataViz website, downloaded a trial copy of Documents To Go Premium 6.0, and all was well... until the trial period ended.

Not wanting to make a transaction over the net (they only accept credit cards on the site!) I had to find a local vendor that sold the software. And thus, the nightmare started. This product isn't easy find. It took me months to find a store that actually sold the dang thing, but when I finally purchased it, I found that it turned out to be version 5.0!!! Now, here is where things go horribly wrong...

Version 5.0 is a mess. There were multiple times when my Palm had to be reset, and there was even an occasion when the document I was working on simply vanished. Add to that, there's no such thing as a BOOKMARK even on that older version!

So be careful when you make the purchase. Better to just buy it here at Amazon.com and save yourself the trouble that I had to endure.

My advice; Palm better think VERY carefully about shipping any PDA without Documents To Go 6.0

Looking back, I could have saved myself a lot of pain, by buying a Pocket PC instead!

5-0 out of 5 stars A fantastic time-saving marvel!
Quickeys 3 by Startly Technologies is a powerful utility to help the computer user create an endless variety of shortcuts that automate everyday, repetitive tasks, resulting in increased productivity.

Quickeys can:

* Launch and manage files, folders, servers and applications (ex. launch your documents folder, switch hard drives, copy or move a file automatically to another location for quick on-the-fly backups)
* Launch web addresses and automatically enter passwords (ex. Check e-mail accounts, review bank statements, pay bills online)
* Write automatic e-mails, documents and any other application requiring text entries(ex. Send an automatic reply to an e-mail, write an invoice,, automatically write your grocery list each month)
* Calculate formulas and mathematical data
* Select menu items including context-sensitive items
* Select items based on single, double, triple and right mouse clicks
* Launch apple script and UNIX commands
* Combine shortcuts you have created into single click power shortcuts.

Quickeys builds these shortcuts into the system interface and allows the user to:
* Create hot keys and key combinations to launch shortcuts
* Select shortcuts from a drop down menu on the menu bar
* Enable shortcuts by speech commands
* Launch shortcuts from the finder or only in specified applications (scope)
* Launch shortcuts based on a specified day or time
* Map any function or application to a key, dater, time or device.


The program does for the Operating System what the actions palette can do to automate steps in Photoshop.


Installing the program was as easy as dragging the icon into the Applications folder and launching the program. Quickeys comes with an indispensable 216 page user guide which requires some careful study before mastering the program,but if you give it some time at the beginning it will be worth your while. And if you are truly stuck, Startly Technologies offers a variety of support options including phone numbers, e-mail addresses and best of all, an online forum called "Quickeys Community" which is compromised of Quickeys users throughout the world. Best of all a link to the Community is built right into the Quickeys interface.

The Quickeys 3 interface operates similarly to that of the finder. Customizable icons are available on a special menu to help the user become comfortable with the variety of tasks.

I began the Quickeys learning process by creating a list of desired shortcuts I wanted to have automated and then approached the software to determine if they could be done.The first item I selected was to create a single shortcut that would launch Entourage, check for new e-mail, apply rules and spam filters, and move unwanted e-mail to the trash. I also wanted QuicKeys to log into my instant messaging accounts, and go online to check my bank balance... all with a simple one-time keyboard combination.

This is where I really became impressed with Quickeys. Not only did Quickeys launch Entourage, but the built-in added options of selecting drop down menu items allowed QuicKeys to retrieve new mail, apply the filters and dump my spam into the trash.

Quickeys also launched Yahoo Instant Messenger, logged into my account and hit the ok button and in a flash I was chatting withmom in Texas.

Finally Quickeys launched my Internet browser, typed in the address for my bank institution, added my user name and password in the proper fields and logged me into my bank account.

I was able to combine all three of these shortcuts together into a final single masterstroke. So now when I wake up in the morning, I hit a single key on my keyboard and have my morning coffee while Quickeys performs my morning computer ritual for me... and mom waits for me to wash the dishes and get back to my computer.


As I began to write this review I had noted that the more shortcuts I created the greater the number of keystrokes - and resulting key combinations - I had to memorize. I was going to suggest that the software developers create a way to have the list of shortcuts available in a drop down menu on the Finder's menu bar. But last night as I was digging deeper into this program, I discovered exactly that feature. You beat me to the punch guys.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good, clean (or bloody), fun...
I very much enjoyed this game. The graphics are great, the gameplay is fairly linear--a drawback for some, but I *like* linear--and the story and dungeons here are both inventive and challenging. I have tried Icewind Dale (tedious and aggravating) and Neverwinter Nights (complicated and, once again, aggravating) for the Mac, but Dungeon Siege is better than either of those games, in my opinion.

I don't want to give up half my life just trying to figure out how to play a game and then spend the other half resolving arcane puzzles that you have to get a clue book to help you with. Geeze. Unless you're a professional gamer (or college student [yeah, I still remember those days!]), who's got time for that? Just a bit of hack and slash adventure is all I crave, with an assortment of challenges (not all of them battle oriented) with a few good digital companions at your side (I found Kroduk, Gloern, and Merik to be particularly helpful). What more could you ask for?

Dungeon Siege is good fun for someone who doesn't want to waste a lot of time trying to figure out character stats and complex rules of engagement. Moreover, while there are a couple of minor side battles here (and one major one that which I missed my first time through), I still found the game entertaining and replayable. I like the idea of fully realized companions that join up with your team along the way (if you want them to and/or can afford to hire them). These are not just mindless drones but as controllable and accessible as the primary character that you create at the beginning of the game. I also like the way characters' abilities are enhanced based on the way you choose to play them; if you have a character use a bow, for example, then they gradually increase in that particular skill.

The music is great, the various levels are seamlessly woven together, and the "gore level" is adjustable, as is the game difficulty level. All in all, this game was just what I was looking for: fun, "winnable", and not irritatingly complex.

I highly recommend Dungeon Siege for Mac owners who enjoy this sort of thing. I haven't had this much fun with a Mac game since the Wizardry, Bard's Tale, and Might and Magic series of long ago. And, yes, I know how old that makes me!

5-0 out of 5 stars A sight to behold
I was never a big fan of Diablo because all in all, the game is somewhat repetitive and you only controlled one man. I mean, come on, how realistic is that? Dungeon Siege is a nice break from the norm were you control a group of adventurers, which you control. How they level up and what they are good at is mostly up to you, and the classes are all fairly varied. The game's major strong points lie in the fact that there is only one load screen in the very beginning and after that there are seemingly flawless graphics and amazing gameplay. The voice acting is none too shabby, and the controls are incredibly easy to get use to. The drawbacks are that the games system requirements are somewhat steep, and I wouldn't advise anyone leaving too many other programs running at the same time because it'll slow down the game. My system is the best iBook out and it still lags at times when other programs are running. Luckily other soundtracks don't need to be implanted, because the music is wonderful to listen to.
Enjoy!

4-0 out of 5 stars Good RPG but with some problems
I bought this game a few weeks ago even though the game is a little out of date. The story line is pretty good even though it is simple to complete. I Like RPGs which have a deep story line, take some skill to complete but the characters, items and skills are easy to get the hang of. The obvious answer? Diablo 2..but i already owned that and people admit it there arent any up to date rpgs with the things i said above...heck macs have a shortage of RPGs even availible. I bought NWNs and i thought it was okay but it was too complicated and i didn't like how if took 5 seconds to roll and hit an enemy. So i looked for other RPGs to buy and DS seemed like a good choice, it quenched my RPG thirst for about 3 weeks but then i beat it and the game wasnt really one u could beat again and have fun. On this i disagree with the other reviewists is the issue of graphics, D2 i thought had better graphics but was released earlier that this game was....If u have Mac and u like RPGs i would buy this game...but other RPGs to consider(if u have no problem buying out of date games) are D2 Baulders Gate 2 and Icewind dale...overall this was a fun game but i think is DS2 is going to be realeased for mac it will be much better.

4-0 out of 5 stars Fun while it lasted
With a enjoyable single player campaign, Dungeon Siege is a solid game, but sadly is rather hadicapped. The campaign is far too short, rather simple, and not very replayable. Multiplayer is extremely lacking, needing a centralized server to be of any use.

3-0 out of 5 stars An great game, with limited appeal
I agree with many of the other reviewers on this page. I am talking exclusively about the single player campaign, which I have managed to get a third of the way through. Dungeon Siege does a number of things very well - graphics and simplified character creation - while sacrificing character depth, interaction, and basically everything else that makes a roleplaying game special.

Good stuff: (1) There were points at which the graphics made me pause to admire the landscape - in particular the trees swaying in a light drizzle and fog falling off the walls of ice caves. All of this requires some hardware of course. I bought the game when I had a 600 mHz iBook with 256 MB RAM and a 16bit graphics card, but recently had it replaced with a 933 mHz iBook (I love the things) with 640 MB RAM and a 32bit card. On the first computer I turned everything to low resolution and got rid of the object detail and particle effects and the game was doable. On my current computer, I've maxed all the settings and the game consistently stuttered only during a snowstorm, where I guess all the falling snowflakes pushed the limits. Considering that the graphics are a major draw, if your computer can't handle them you might want to think twice about buying this game. (2) The system of character creation is simplicity itself. At the beginning you decide what your character looks like, and the game starts. Your three abilities (Strength, Dexterity, Intelligence) and four skills (Melee, Ranged weapons, Nature magic, Combat magic) all start at the same low level. They are raised by doing related things, so regularly casting a fireball raises Combat Magic, which in turn raises Intelligence, and higher intelligence gives the character more mana points to cast spells. It's so simple that it quickly fades into the background of the game, and makes Dungeon Siege approachable especially for players who don't want entire lists of abilities, skills, and derived charts to worry themselves with. (3) No upload time! Wherever the characters go there is a never a pause while the new area is uploaded, which makes gameplay one continuous experience. Big "Oooooh!" factor here. (4) Great inventory control. With a single click, the computer will organize the inventory of a character. There's a spell which turns an item of loot into gold, at a slight cost. And the best innovation of any game ever - mules! Honest to the maker four footed mules that you can load with all the loot.

Bad stuff: (1) Almost entirely linear play. There are a few side areas to wander into but the game is mostly (journey during which you kill everything in sight) followed by (safe place where you can buy and sell supplies/companions/mules) followed by (another journey of death), etc. (2) Simplified characters. I'm one of those people who likes the sub-charts of derived scores as part of my character, and finds the decision about whether or not to raise my Blacksmithing skill gripping. There's not enough detail and control of your character. (3) Storyline essentially disappears early on. The game starts with a quest to tell the authorities about a new danger, but the plot is quickly abandoned for a combat free-for all. Despite talk about your character being the hero of the land, it is possible to dismiss your character and replace him/her with a hired mercenary!

I'm not against combat-fests and I really enjoyed Diablo, but I think what makes this game particularly uninspiring is its puzzling lack of attitude, or what might be called soul. Even really bad games, which Dungeon Siege is not, usually have someone who was inspired to make it and the maker's enthusiasm comes through somewhere in the game. I don't know if the speculation about it being because it is a Microsoft product are correct, but in the end there doesn't seem to be anything to this game except pretty images, good programming and killing stuff, which may be enough for some players. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Go get Shadows of Amn instead
GraphSim fixed all the little things and [messed] up the big ones. Sure, it's nice that everybody now has two quick weapon slots (so Jaheira is playable), and that hide in shadows doesn't work if there aren't any shadows (oops!). The new quests aren't bad either, though they're nothing special.

The big problem is that it crashes like a drunk driver. Most sounds HAD to be turned off during big fights or I would get an error saying that a decoder was not available & the game quit. I considered myself lucky if I could get through an hour of play without having a hard freeze that required a full system reset, even after tweaking the settings (most sounds off, etc.) to improve stability. Don't even think of increasing the game's memory partition, because it will actually crash MORE, even with tons of extra memory left over for the system! As far as I can tell (i.e., just looked at their Web site), GraphSim never released a patch at all.

Save yourself some frustration. Go get Shadows of Amn instead. It's not only prettier & more interesting, it WORKS.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great fun, but oh the crashing.....
As with other reviewers, I had problems with the game crashing....most noticable during the most difficult fight in the game. Luckily, an experienced RPG player knows to save the game often.

The additional items, spells, and areas are a welcome addition, though the experience cap of 161k is still a bit low. However, there are easy workarounds that can be downloaded from the web. Still, the overall enjoyment of the game makes up for sketchy stability.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good extension
After completion of this game, I immediately bought Baldurs gate II. This extension for the initial game allows you to play with your previous character. The graphics are really nice and the scenario is very intersting. Concerning the problems with the sound and abilities I am very surprised: the voices of the character were clear and no crashes, excepted at one place (wich is not required for the completion of the game). I really enjoyed this game and recommend it to anyone who played the original baldur's gate ( tested on an Ibook 500, 256 Mo RAM system 9.2)

1-0 out of 5 stars THIS is a game?
The game would be fun if it actually PLAYED. Character voices got scrambled, abilities got scrambled, and NONE of the NPC's in this expansion actually came up with a dialogue box, making it IMPOSSIBLE to go on any of the additional adventures. They remained stuck in a loop, restating their default audio again and again and again.... This CD is NOT a game - it's a DRINK COASTER. DO NOT EVEN THINK about buying this pile until they release a bug fix!! I'm using a G4 running OS9.1 with 384Meg of ram, so I *think* I meet the min. requirements. Zero stars is more like it! Too many bugs to even consider - I RETURNED this stinker!

4-0 out of 5 stars BG Expansion ToSC
Just got the game this morning and so far I like it, but it did crash a couple of times on me. The graphics are as expected from the original game, and some of the early encounters are pretty challenging. Some of the side plots are carried over from the original game and have become the basis for the plot of this game.

The company has worked on increasing the easy of game play and fascilitating ease of combat (i.e. all characters now have 2 quick weapon slots which replaces a delema from the orginial game - do I give my mage, cleric, or multiclassed character a melee or ranged weapon). New weapons and spells are also introduced as is a higher experience cap (and thus higher level characters). The character pathfinding has remained somewhat a problem (i.e. characters still wander off during explorations of underground layers, leading to them unexpectedly running into traps or monsters), and characters move at the same (moderatley slow) rate. Perhaps this is not as much of a problem on faster computers.

All in all the game sees quite fun, just like the original, but because of some minor problems (pathfinding and a couple of crashes), I give it 4 stars. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

The most popular--and formidable--product in Jian's well-tested "Toolsfor Sales" portfolio, BizPlan Builder is an excellent, step-by-step,instant-business-plan package. Making its first appearance in 1995 as version 5.0, thisapplication should prove to be a valuable investment, whether you're adaydreaming entrepreneur or a decorated veteran.

PC users will be especially happy with version 7.0, which includes aninteractive interviewing tool that fills out the various parts of your businessplan for you. Mac users will have to content themselves with document templatesthat can be used with Word, Works, and Excel. However, the program does provideover 20 new forms, featuring everything from loan proposal summary letters towell-designed articles of incorporation and a due diligence checklist.

Even without the PC-based interview, BizPlan Builder provides reams of guidanceand technical know-how as well as straightforward sample docs. Better yet, thethick manual that comes with BizPlan Builder is not just for troubleshooting theapplication, it's also for troubleshooting your business plan itself. From theinitial Top 20 Questions that prepare you to be grilled by investors, toinformation-packed appendices with tips on finding funding and presenting yourbusiness plan, this handbook represents the distillation of shelf-loads of otherbusiness publications.

Even if BizPlan Builder does nothing but convince you that you're in over yourhead, consider that money well spent. --Paul Hughes ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Amazingly inexpensive software with expected limitations
Thinkfree Office is a simple and inexpensive software program that allows you to read and write MS documents without actually owning Microsoft Office.

If you can't afford and/or don't like MS Office, for whatever reason, and you're looking for something that will allow you to access MS created documents and share with others, this product is for you.

Drawbacks: The largest is that Thinkfree Office does not translate everything. It seems to have most trouble with formating and special fonts. However, it always gets the actual text correct. Secondly, it's also on the slow side. And lastly, it's interface doesn't feel Mac friendly. You can definitely see its roots with Microsoft.

I would have to disagree with those who say that the Write module is simply an upgraded version of SimpleText or TextEdit. Write has a menu bar that competes easily with AppleWorks. I was honestly amazed when I saw the features it had given what I paid for the software.

MS Office sells for several hundred dollars and is a RAM and hard drive pig. Thinkfree is an exceptionally inexpensive (especially if you buy it used) alternative that will allow you to access MS documents and create new ones. It has its problems, yes, but if you're getting what you pay for. If you want something that works exactly like Word, Excel or PowerPoint then you'll have to buy MS Office.

1-0 out of 5 stars Worst software in 16 years !
It doesn't work. Period.
No response from tech support after 2 inquiries over 10 days.
History: it wouldn't open _any_ of my word doc's: tech support advised re-install. [no-brainer, non-responsive advice] Nontheless, I did this TWICE, and it still wouldn't work. Emailed tech again, twice, still no response after 11-12 days. In other words, there is no tech support.
I got a trial .v of icWord, and it did everything AND it costs less.

This is first junk software I've had in 16 yrs as a Mac user. There should be a no-star rating for these guys.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not the best choice ...
I had to purchase this product for OSX while waiting to be able to upgrade my Microsoft Word program. It opened slowly, and much of the formatting I regularly use - including headers, footers, and tables - were lost when I attempted to open the documents. It seems to be a simple upgraded version of Simple Text. If you need something a bit more Word compatible - I'm afraid you'll have to buy Microsoft Word - even a much older version running on Classic 9 does better.

4-0 out of 5 stars Anything but Micro$oft Office
ThinkFree Office v2.2 for OS X is a very reasonable alternative to M$ Office. There is one bug that emerged with the OS X 10.2.6 update - when opening ThinkFree write, it creates a odd tiny window 1-2 pixels wide. I've found some workarounds that allow the app to function, though; and the e-mail support was excellent.

As others have noted, there are some compatibility issues when importing M$ documents. These can be anywhere from minimal to irritating. The main problem that I've seen relates to the placement of graphics. Calc, the spreadsheet, seems to be the most compatible. I do not use the presentation product, preferring Apple's Keynote instead.

Written in Java, I had some concerns about speed. Running ThinkFree v2.2 on a Mac 9500 with a 400 MHz G4 card and a 9600 with a 500 MHz G4 card was slow. Typing frequently outpaced the character display. On the other hand, running it on my 1.25 GHz G4 DP MDD showed no adverse speed issues.

The bottom line is that this suite works. Among the alternatives to M$ office for OS X, it is probably the best. The other wold be OpenOffice, which is improving, but you have to fuss with an X-window environment and though they state that anti-aliasing of fonts should work in the latest version, I could never get it to work.

It is relatively inexpensive and from my perspective worth a try. I currently use it daily as my productivity suite.

4-0 out of 5 stars A reasonable alternative to Microsoft Office
ThinkFree Office is solid office software with all the features you would expect to see in a professional package. There is a learning curve as things don't all work as you might expect them to, assuming that you are accustomed to Microsoft Office. The thing that can be a real headache is when documents are not 100% compatible - Word does not seem to have much of a problem importing ThinkFree documents but I've had some formatting issues importing MS Office documents. It can be a great solution if you can put your whole office on this product - what you save is well worth the minor issues you'll have and since your co-workers are using it compatibility issues are significantly reduced. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars I can't play it
This game is sooo stupid. It doesn't work on my computer, in fact I've tried to install it on three of my other friends computers and it doesn't work on any of them! I would say not to take a chance by buying it itf there is a chance it won't even work.

4-0 out of 5 stars Exploring the New Tomb Raider
TR: AOD was anticipated for quite some time, and it is finnaly here! Is it worth getting the new game? I would answer with a resounding "Yes!" I haven't had so much fun playing a game in a long time, and this new chapter of Tomb Raider is the perfect combination of new moves and graphics as well as the old game-play style.
The three highlights of the game are its sound, its graphics, and its exploration. The Audio, recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra, is some of the best and most atmospheric I have heard. The graphics, while not state of the art, are better than any other Tomb Raider. The environments are convincing, and so are Lara's movements and abilities. Her hand-to-hand combat is especially nice. The maps make you feel almost as if you are really there in Paris and Prague.
Now, the game is not without some faults. The new weapons and gun-fighting system is not very fluid, since Lara is limited to only one pistol at a time. Taking away the trademark dual pistols was not a good move. Her movements are also different if she is holding a gun, which makes combta where maneuvering is required difficult to perform. The system requirments are high, but I am running an eMac with only 700 mhz, and the game looks great and hardly has any slowdown excpet in the really big areas.
Over all, this game is a great one, and the storyline and ability to talk to other characters and choose different paths (particularly in the Parisian Ghetto levels) are emersive and exciting. I, for one, am looking forward to the next Tomb Raider! ... Read more

Keynote, Apple’s answer to Microsoft’s PowerPoint presentation software, has the limited feature set of a first offering but makes a good-looking show out of the gate.

Users accustomed to PowerPoint’s robust array of clip art, pre-populated themes, and pre-set transitions will be disappointed with Keynote’s small offering of pre-fabricated elements. However, they won’t be able to find fault with the visual quality of the elements that Keynote does include; any of the tasteful Keynote themes, detachable chart elements, or cinematic slide transitions would easily stand out against their PowerPoint counterparts.

Keynote’s interface is fairly similar to PowerPoint, although there are some differences. As with PowerPoint you can setup and see the progress of your slide show in a vertical panel on the left. Most of the formatting controls are in a control box called the "inspector"--whether building a chart, making a graphic twirl, or mandating the transition between two slides, you are mostly using the inspectors’ controls rather than dropdown menus or key commands to get things done. In addition to being able to animate imported graphics, audio and movie files can be played within a slide, though these multimedia effects will not run across multiple slides.

What will have to wait for the next version are comprehensive chart creation and exporting capabilities. Currently Keynote provides nine beautiful chart styles to choose from, but getting data into these pre-populated formats can be tedious. Users may find it easier to construct their more complicated charts outside the program, and import them as pre-made images into the slideshow.And, though you can export Keynote presentations to QuickTime and to PowerPoint, there is no Keynote-to-HTML conversion as yet. --Elizabeth Aoki

4-0 out of 5 stars New Turn Your Slide Presentations with Keynote
For most Mac users, slide presentations means Microsoft's Powerpoint. Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple, in 2003 decided there is the ÔMac WayÕ for presentations. In Steve Jobs words, ÒKeynote makes your presentation really count. Ó

Under the Keynote Hood

You can choose transition, style, direction and speed when you use KeynoteÕs Inspector. Creating object builds adds visual interest to your slide presentation. You can animate the elements on a single slide or in a group of slides.

One click and you alter the opacity of a graphic using the Slide Inspector. Click twice and you can set the playback parameters for a QuickTime movie. The Build window in the Inspector allows you to preview, add, and manipulate transitions within and between slides.

AppleÕs Keynote allows you to include sound for your presentation. AppleÕs KeynoteÕs sound formats you can use are MOV, Flash, MP3 and AIFF. Also, you can add files from iTunesÕ music library to your Keynote slide presentation. In addition, you can add a Quicktime movie to your slides.

Pro Reaction

Keynote has crisp, fresh graphics. KeynoteÕs ÔDrag and DropÕ and exporting to AppleÕs Quicklime both work well. You can import Microsoft PowerPoint or AppleWorksÕ presentations and create a custom theme base on those slides.

You can store your images in KeynoteÕs Image Library. KeynoteÕs Cube and Mosaic Large transitions are outstanding for updating your MicrosoftÕs PowerPoint. You receive a KeynoteÕs User Guide manual. No missing manual here.

Con Reaction

Keynote lacks prebuilt presentations. Also, Keynote has very little clip art to work with in presentations. Also, you have limited presentation themes to choose from in Keynote.

Keynote Cube and Mosaic Large and small transitions do not render well when exporting in MicrosoftÕs PowerPoint or AcrobatÕs PDF formats. Missing from KeynoteÕs User Guide is an index.

Final Notes

You can count on KeynoteÕs sharp appearance, ease of use, and great price. Keynote makeÔs it easy to create professional-looking presentations compatible with MicrosoftÕs PowerPoint. In addition, Keynote gives your presentations attractive slide-transition effects. I use AppleÕs KeynoteÕs software as a companion software for revising my MicrosoftÕs PowerPoint presentations.

5-0 out of 5 stars Charts and clean presentations...
I work with plenty of powerpoint charts in my work with windows users...but when I need a great statistics chart, I turn to Keynote. I have plenty of control over the output and the results are stunning.

The export to powerpoint works terrific. However, if you build a presentation in Keynote, you may just consider exporting it into Quicktime so that the viewer can simply run through the presentation in pristine quality and enjoy all of the terrific transitions.

I hope to see more office apps like this from Apple in the future.

5-0 out of 5 stars It knows what you need.
For years, PowerPoint has been the bain of my existence. My boss is obsessed with it. Every week it's another presentation in PowerPoint. Finally, an alternative. As usual, Apple takes the "point" out of a Microsoft product. It seems fair, all things considered.

The user interface for this program is fast and easy to learn. It even gives you several options of themes to use for those deadline crunches that we all run into from time to time. It includes the famous drag-and-drop functionality that we've come to expect.

Most importantly, you can save it out to PowerPoint for those less enlighted souls who still think that a Windows machine will help them keep up with the times.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy, Sharp, Intuitive, Apple
After being a slave to both Mc and PC versions of PPT, Keynote came along and threw off the bonds. As I own my own business and can use what I want, Keynote will replace PPT without hesitation.
Graphic acuity, more choices and freedoms to manipulate charts and graphs with ease.
No problem leaving MS PPT at the curb with the rest of the mutts.. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars No Save Feature
The graphics are very good. This is a game that requires a lot of planning and memorizing keypad commands, but this can be fun once you've learned your way around.

The huge con: No Game Save feature. You can spend lots of time getting nowhere. Wanna buy mine?

3-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing port of an okay sequel
Having played all of the previous Rainbow Six games, I was glad to see Raven Sheild available just as I got a new g5. It's just as carefully put together and realistic as the previous versions, if not better. The AI has clearly improved, but there were few other major improvements since the last release. The big, showstopping flaw? The Mac port does not allow netplay against PC users. Get Ghost Recon instead, or UT 2004.

5-0 out of 5 stars Mac's Kick ass again!
Clancy does it again folks and if your lucky enough to be playing this game on the new Mac G-5 with a top of the line Graphics card (128 pro) get ready for the best gaming expierence their is out there. Puts any PC availible to absolute shame. Top of the line graphics as well as super fast game play and no freeze up no matter how much ass kickin you do. Turn on the options on MAX and enjoy it the way it was meant to be done.

5-0 out of 5 stars Another Hit!
Yet again, the Tom Clancy franchise has had another success!! I got this game a few days ago, and havn't been able to stop playing it! I havn't done much with Single Player, but the Multiplayer is simply kick ass! A huge array of weaponry, great maps, and good overall gameplay. If you loved any of the previous R6's, of Ghost Recon, you are sure to love this.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good fun game, But better with the PC
First off I have to say that the PC version is about 1,000 times better with the best multiplayer, graphics, and fun factor over poor old Mac. However the Mac version does sport some good visuals and even the same rag doll physics as PC. Way, Way to easy to die but that is the way it is in real life and Tom Clancy won't be making anything that isn't the most realistic in the shooter franchise. Good plot, Decent Graphics, Not to Mention Domingo "Ding" Chavez a.k.a. coolest sniper ever! But if you own a Mac for gaming there is something wrong with you so buy this game if you are a moderate fan because sadly, if you want the best computers have to offer Billy Gates will always be the one with the goods. ...
