Marc Orchant and James Kendrick are back with a vengeance with this special show.  Joining us on the show today is Michael Linenberger, author of Seize the Work Day (Using the Tablet PC to Take Total Control of Your Work and Meeting Day) and his new book Total Workday Control Using Microsoft OutlookSeize the Work Day is unquestionably the best book covering productivity with the Tablet PC and Michael expands the best practices with Outlook in Total Workday Control.  The discussion with Michael is a lively one that covers his books, how and why he wrote them, and even looks to the future of the Tablet PC.

Michael has graciously offered three copies each of both of his books to give away to the podcast listeners so listen carefully to the show to find out what you need to do to be eligible for a free book.  Marc and I will be determining the winners over the next few days so don’t delay- listen to the show and get your entry in as a comment on the show post!  We will announce the six winners on the next show.

Enjoy the show and let us know what you think.

Special thanks to Tiedye Keith for the great song "Vulnerable" with vocals by Tony Lindsay of Santana.



Sorry to comment on a long ago show, but I just listened to it, and Michae makes a comment that he wished there was a was to add new words to the spoken dictation. There is and it is quite simple. Go to the TIP, select “speech tools”, then “add pronunciation for a Word”, type the word and then record the voice for it. Works great. He also mentioned problems with undertanding the word “task”, this word can be re-recorded in the same way. Great podcast, got me to finally try the voice dictation and it works great after a few training sessions. I am hooked!!!!

Thanks for a great show. I have read Michael’s book and use a number of his suggestions. I recently moved from an Outlook corporate environment to a Lotus Notes environment. I realize the two of you use Outlook and focus on this program regarding productivity and work flow processes during podcasts, but I have to believe a number of your listeners are using Lotus Notes, considering its presence in the business world. Is it possible to explore this application in the same way on some future show? Thanks for the great job you both are doing and keep it up!

I thought there’d be dozens of people lined up to get Total Workday Control. I may not be the most inovative user of Outlook, but I am likely the most studious listener to every On The Run with Table PC, JK Audio, and Mobiletech. I’m obsessed.

I use Lookout Search (that Microsoft bought)over PDFs going back to 1997, Anagram to get info in, and Hosted Exchange from 4Smartphone.com to my Cingular 2125. I love opening my phone’s calendar in a meeting and finding that my admin has changed my schedule over-the-air so I then know which appointments have been added to my schedule.

My major hurdle is what Michael Linenberger’s program addresses. Most of my tasks are on a LEGAL PAD with my Outlook Task uselessly out of date. Help me go paperless!
