It’s been a long time since Microsoft put out a new version of Office for Mac. Three-and-a-half years to be exact, and now the company is gearing up for another big update.

Hübschen did not provide details of what to expect in the way of headlining features, short of noting that there would be more details in the next few months.
Today’s slim, svelte computers look great. You, on the other hand, look like a total yutz fumbling around to plug a thumb drive into a USB port that’s somehow perpetually upside down.
