But, in every area he talks about I believe I can show pretty deep value for a whole range of businesses. I couldn't live without the new Outlook, for instance. Why? The old one has a 2GB PST limit. The new one has none. The new one has search folders which make me dramatically more productive. The new one is faster and more reliable. The new one works in flaky online conditions (er, wifi networks) a lot better. And I could go on.

Hmmm.... sounds familiar.

Search... Notes 3 (Verity full-text search: 1993). Reliability... Notes 4(platform-independent active-active clustering: 1995). Working with poor or non-existant connectivity... Notes 1 (replication: 1989).

That seems to leave speed as his only argument for Outlook. I might argue that all the things that Notes does that Outlook doesn't outweigh this, and Scoble's probably smart enough to avoid the speed and productivity losses of repeated encounters with the Outlook virus du jour, so in plain-and-simple email UI speed I'll concede this one to him.
