New from Microsoft are updates to the last three versions of its flagship Office for Mac suite. According to the company, the three releases, labeled 14.1.2 for Office 2011, 12.3.0 for Office 2008, and 11.6.4 for Office 2004, are all aimed at security, addressing eight important vulnerabilities focused on specially crafted Excel files that an attacker could use to overwrite the contents of a computer’s memory with malicious code. Office for Mac 2011 14.1.2 also fixes several bugs in Outlook and Word. (Free updates; 109 MB, 333 MB, 13 MB)
Add Slides to Pear Note from Other Applications
If you have some slides in any application, and you'd like to add them to a Pear Note document, there's no need to save them out and then import them into Pear Note. Instead, you can send them directly to Pear Note through a PDF service. For instance, if you had slides in Keynote, just:
- Select Print within Keynote.
- Click the PDF button.
- Select Send PDF to Pear Note.
This can also be used to import other document types into Pear Note to take notes on them as well.

Upon reading this news in Tidbits, I checked for Updates, and AutoUpdate told me I had 3 to install. Great. Click "Install" and wait for them to install, right? Nope. In order to do the first installation, I have to quit AutoUpdate. And of course that means that only one installation takes place, requiring me to reboot a MS application and redo the process. I wonder when they will fix this....
