Home Office Computing Magazine Announces 3rd Annual List of 100 Best Products - Home Office Products, Services and Sites for 2000 -

- List is Released November 14 at Comdex Trade Show in Las Vegas -



    LAS VEGAS, Nov. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Home Office Computing, the technology
 and productivity magazine for today's work-at-home workforce, has announced
 their selection of the 100 best home office products, services and sites of
 2000.  The announcement was made today at an award ceremony at the Comdex
 trade show in Las Vegas.  This year marks the third in a row that Home Office
 Computing has selected a top 100 list based on value, performance, ease of
 use, innovation, and suitability for home offices.
     Of the list, Home Office Computing editor in chief Eric Grevstad says,
 "Two out of three new businesses begin at home, and almost 20 million
 Americans today are at least part-time telecommuters, making home offices a
 hotter market than ever before.  We're pleased to salute these products
 because they help home-based workers succeed.  Instead of being aimed at
 corporate computing centers or family consumers, they're just right for
 today's work-at-home workforce."
     For more information about Home Office Computing and the list of this
 year's winners, please visit their website at http://www.destinationsoho.com.
