Cook'n is Smarter than Outlook

I am so frustrated with Microsoft Outlook 2003. I use Outlook to send e-mail messages and until recently, when I type "and" it automatically fills in for me.

However, it doesn't work right anymore. You see, I replied to a message by and now whenever I type "and" it fills in that address instead of even though I have only sent one message to the one address and hundreds to the other.

I've sent hundreds of messages to my Dad, but for some reason it still hasn't memorized his address at all. I have to look it up every time! It doesn't make any sense.

There's no rhyme or reason to it. It's so frustrating!

Cook'n is smarter than Outlook. When you enter a recipe and type "wheat" the drop-down list shows all of the ingredients that have the word "wheat" in them. The list is sorted based on the ingredient's frequency.

"Wheat bread" may appear in the 3rd spot on your list now but each time you choose it, a counter is incremented. After a while, if you keep choosing that ingredient, the frequency value for "wheat bread" will increase.

At some point, "wheat bread" will increase in rank to the #2 spot and eventually #1. Cook'n learns as it goes. The more you use Cook'n, the smarter it gets about what ingredients you like and dislike.

Pretty neat, huh? I would think that Microsoft could afford to do something similar. Heck, I'll do it for them if they give me the source code!!

Anyway, as I went on my rant, some of the guys in the office were surprised to hear that Cook'n had this capability. I guess I never explained it to them till now. I thought maybe you'd like to know as well.

I hope this helps.

Have a great day!
