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.

Comments about Mac OS X v10.6.7 Supplemental Update for 13-inch MacBook Air (Late 2010)

I don't think this problem is strictly endemic to the Air. Since installing 10.6.7, shutdown has been very slow on my iMac, and this morning, it wouldn't start at all until it'd been powered down and up.

Hoping Apple does something about this soon
