Folks who use Microsoft Office on their Macs will be pleased to know that its first service pack will be available starting next week. In an announcement today, Microsoft mentioned the features that SP1 will bring to their productivity suite: increased stability, security, improved Outlook syncing support and some performance enhancements. And in this case, the improved syncing support is what a lot of users are looking forward to: SP1 will enable Outlook for Mac to sync with Apple’s Sync Services. This means that iPhone and iPad users will finally be able to sync all their notes, contacts and tasks with Outlook – hassle-free. However, they’ve made it clear that it will not sync with MoibleMe calendars. Read the official announcement.
