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.

It was a busy week here, and all we ran across worth sharing was a fabulous Joy of Tech comic about devices Facebook could work on and an iPhone case from ThinkGeek that gives an iPhone a flip-out physical keyboard.

Joy of Tech Suggests Facebook Devices -- Our friends at Joy of Tech are on a roll, with this comic suggesting a variety of devices that Facebook is working on. Our favorites: The Wi-Fi-enabled Facebook garbage can that uploads pictures of things you throw out to your profile, and the Facebook showerhead whose default privacy settings "stream the steam" straight to the entire Facebook community.

iPhone Case Doubles as Bluetooth Keyboard -- Though it's disappointingly out of stock until late November, the ThinkGeek TK-421 iPhone Case with Flip-Out Keyboard certainly looks interesting. While its aesthetics and added thickness aren't impressive, the flip-out keyboard works via Bluetooth with your iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4 to provide the tactile typing sensation that some recovering BlackBerry addicts crave. The $49.99 case is an original ThinkGeek creation and uses its own built-in, rechargeable battery. Now you can text your reason the next time you're not at your post.
