StyleWriters and Ethernet -- Last week, Apple announced the Color StyleWriter 1500 and 2500, which offer color inkjet printing at about $280 and $380, respectively. The new printers print in black at three and five pages per minute (though they are considerably slower with color), and the 2500 offers water-resistant ink. Apple also announced the StyleWriter EtherTalk Adapter, which enables users to connect a StyleWriter 2500, 2400, 2200, 1500, or 1200 to an EtherTalk network using either 10Base-T or ThinNet. Apple expects the EtherTalk Adapter to be available in early April for about $190. [GD]
Close Word Comments Easily
If you don't like how precisely you must mouse in Microsoft Word 2008 to delete comment balloons, note that you can Control-click (right-click) a balloon to pop up a contextual menu. From the menu choose Delete Comment, and you're done.
Also, to get rid of all comments at once, choose Tools > Customize Keyboard and set up a keyboard shortcut to go with the DeleteAllComments command, available in the Tools category. Oddly, there's no Delete Comment keyboard customization option that I can find.
