PocketPC >> Fire the MS project leaders- NO syncing with Money 2007?

What in the heck was the idiot project leader for MS Money thinking
when it was determined that Money 2007 shouldn't sync with a Pocket PC?

And what is MS thinking when it determined that Windows Mobile 2005
wouldn't sync with ANY version of Money?

People, I thought software and PDA's were supposed to HELP with
productivity. What idiot is running the show at MS for their Mobile
and productivity product lines? These two decisions have immediately
kept me from buying MS Money 2007 (a product line I've used for YEARS)
as well as upgrading to a newer Pocket PC.


Way to go MS! Fire the product project managers responsible for these
decisions.

There was no synching with Money'06 and WM5, either. You should look at the
Money newsgroups - lots of complaining about M07 anyway, regardless of any
Mobile functionality.

Well, Cash Organizer will sync with several versions of Money. Once you see
its features you will be laughing at the feature-less Microsoft Money for
pocket PC... the lack of ability to sync to its desktop counterpart while
3rd parties can is simply unforgiveable.

IMHO, of course.

There are others as well, including SPB Finance and Mastersoft Money, that
get great marks. I just happen to use the former.

Cash Organizer, for comparison to Pocket Money.

Google for the others.

But in no way assume that Pocket Money is the only option - it gives pocket
computing a bad name. (Not that you were, of course).
