Track Changes Dates Reset on Save As in Word 2008

If you regularly use the Save As feature to create new drafts while working in Word 2008, you might notice that with Track Changes enabled, previously time-stamped comments and edits have their times reset to the Save As date and time. Work around this by sticking with your original file, but using Save As (or just File > Duplicate in the Finder) to make backup copies.

Apple Reports $106 Million Fourth Quarter Profit -- Apple Computer surprised both analysts and markets last week by announcing its strongest fourth quarter in nine years, with a $106 million profit on a whopping $2.35 billion in revenue for the company's final fiscal quarter of 2004. Moreover, Apple shipped more than 2 million iPod music players during the quarter, and the quarter represents a startling 37 percent revenue increase compared to the same quarter last year. The results include a $4 million restructuring charge. Gross margins for the quarter stayed high at 27 percent, and international sales represented 37 percent of revenue. Significantly, Apple's retail store revenue was up 95 percent from the same quarter last year.

Despite a delay caused by shortages of G5 processors, Apple says the new iMac G5 is off to a strong start; Apple shipped 836,000 Macs during the quarter, more than half of which were iBooks and PowerBooks. The 2.02 million iPods Apple shipped represents a 500 percent increase over the same quarter a year ago; some 6 percent of those iPods were manufactured by Hewlett-Packard as part of the companies' production alliance. What's stunning is that Apple moved over a third of all iPods (5.7 million) ever sold in just the last three months. Looking forward, the company expects its next fiscal quarter (which includes the holiday buying season) to be strong, with revenues between $2.8 and $2.9 billion. [GD]
