Virtual work is here! Experts say that in the near future, more and more
people will telecommute to virtual offices, doing virtual work for virtual
companies. You have to hope that these virtual jobs will provide real
paychecks. You can’t pay real bills with virtual money.
The web is what makes this brave new world possible. Outlook works
beautifully on the web, but sometimes you can’t tote a full-blown version of Outlook
wherever you are. However, Outlook.com can help you become super
productive by giving you access to all your Outlook.com or HotMail.com e-mail,
along with your full Contacts list and your calendar from any web-connected
computer. If you take advantage of Outlook.com, you can turn virtual work
into real results.
Exploring Outlook.com
Outlook.com is a free web-based e-mail service provided by Microsoft. It’s
somewhat like Google’s Gmail service but has a twist — a link to your
desktop Outlook data. Microsoft has combined Hotmail and Windows Live into
one e-mail service, and has added support for contacts (including Facebook,
Twitter, and LinkedIn) and your calendar.
