Notable BlackBerry Syncing Features Disabled in Microsoft Entourage 2008

Microsoft Entourage 2008The new version of Microsoft Entourage included in the Office 2008 suite has some notable features missing. Especially if you use a BlackBerry with your Mac. Direct syncing with the BlackBerry has been disabled… AND plug-in support which allowed apps like the missing sync to work has been disabled as well. What gives?

I’m not an Entourage user myself, but I know a lot of folks that are. On top of that many of them carry a BlackBerry as well. I’d be a little peeved about this one to say the least.

Update: Read this article that rebuts the above points (thanks Chris!)
