Find Next Without Using the Find Dialog in Word 2008

Rarely do you want to find just one instance of a word or phrase in Word. Instead of trying to keep Word 2008's Find and Replace dialog showing while searching, which can be awkward on a small screen, try the Next Find control. After you've found the term you're looking for once, click the downward-pointing double arrow button at the bottom of the vertical scroll bar to find the next instance of your search term. The upward-pointing double arrow finds the previous instance, which is way easier than switching to Current Document Up in the expanded Find and Replace dialog.

 
 

iTunes 9.0.3

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has released a small but helpful bug-fix update for iTunes. Version 9.0.3 fixes an issue that prevented the "Remember password for purchases" setting from being enabled, addresses problems with syncing certain smart playlists and podcasts with unspecified iPod models, and resolves a bug that caused problems in recognizing connections with some iPods. Apple says the update also improves general stability and performance. The update is available via Software Update or from Apple's Web site. (Free, 90.82 MB)

I'm impressed with iTunes 9.0.3. However, I want to know if iTunes 9.0.3 allows more than 80 minutes of music to be burned on a CD without using the MP3 format.

I'm no expert on burning CDs, but my understanding is that when making an audio CD (as opposed to a data CD containing audio in MP3 format), you're limited to what the disc can do (usually marked on the disc or package). I don't believe iTunes has any control over that.

Adam's correct. There's a set of specs for audio CDs (the Red Book), and it defines 79.8 minutes as the longest sum of recordings that may be made in that format. iTunes (nor any CD burning software) cannot write more music than that for discs to be played back in any compatible audio CD player using the audio CD format.

It seems that 9.0.3 has re-introduced the annoying bug that stops the zoom control bringing up the Mini Player. Hope they bring that back.
