The Page Design Genie

It seems that Xerox are designing a program that will automatically layout your documents for you using "sound design principles" so that it looks good.

Of course, those of us who've used LaTeX as a word-processor know how good that is already at layout. It will even hyphenate words correctly. OK, so it may not be so good with different sized fonts and lots and lots of pictures, but it's been around for ages, and does a really good job as it is.

Anyway, I think it's better at it than MS Office.
