Adam's favorite weather app for the iPhone, WeatherBug Elite, has been expanded for the iPad, and for a limited time, it's available for free. We haven't spent much time with it yet, but it appears to use the iPad's larger screen to good effect, devoting most of the display to the map, and providing four zoomable panels for conditions, cameras, forecast and hourly forecast. The main missing feature appears to be pin dropping and display, but WeatherBug's developers tell me they just couldn't get it in for the iPad launch, and plan to add it to an update, due in the next month or so. follow link
Stylin' a Word Comment Balloon
If you work with Word's Comment feature, you may find that the comment-balloon text is too small to work with, or you may just want some variety. To modify the style, choose Format > Style. From the List pop-up menu, choose All Styles. Select Balloon Text from the Style list. Modify the style as you like, and then click Apply. I like Arial Narrow, 12 point.
