On the Channel 9 team we get a ton of email. It's overwhelming at times, actually. So, we were very interested when Eric Horvitz (Microsoft's most prolific inventor) said "I have something that can help."
That something is the Outlook Mobile Manager. It prioritizes your messages and makes smart decisions about when to send email to your mobile device. It also adds lots of other features to your mobile phone.
Anyway, Eric is a joy to listen to cause he's one of Microsoft's smartest people (works in Research) and talks about some of the research he's doing into how to prioritize email.

Oh, and as an aside, we asked Eric about some work he has been doing with biologists on understanding how the nervous systems of small invertebrates work, some other work going on in his group at Microsoft Research.
