BusyMac has released an update to its calendaring app, BusyCal 1.6.2, and while the list of fixes is small, they could prove important to many users. This new release corrects a bug that caused conflicts when syncing with Google Calendar, as well as another that prevented meetings from getting updated in iCloud. Additionally, it corrects an incompatibility with alarms that have no sound on Lion iCal Server. Localization changes round out the update. ($49.99 new, free update, 6.7 MB, release notes)
Copy Excel Selection as a Picture
Want to show someone a chunk of an Excel spreadsheet via email or iChat? You could take a screenshot, but if you want to show just a portion of the Excel window and you don't use a utility like Snapz Pro, you can do this right from within Excel 2008. Make a selection, hold down the Shift key, and choose Copy Picture from the Edit menu. You can select whether the selection will be rendered as though it was shown on screen or as though it was printed. Then just switch to your desired destination and paste.
