50 Best Books for Boys and Young Men

Like online tools? You gotta check out some of the amazing upgrades from Acrobat.com. I've already mentioned my love for the clean look and design of their Buzzword word processor. Now, along with their document storage and meeting site, they've added a presentation tool, and a pretty great spreadsheet creator called Adobe Tables. Give it a look.
