Find Next Without Using the Find Dialog in Word 2008

Rarely do you want to find just one instance of a word or phrase in Word. Instead of trying to keep Word 2008's Find and Replace dialog showing while searching, which can be awkward on a small screen, try the Next Find control. After you've found the term you're looking for once, click the downward-pointing double arrow button at the bottom of the vertical scroll bar to find the next instance of your search term. The upward-pointing double arrow finds the previous instance, which is way easier than switching to Current Document Up in the expanded Find and Replace dialog.

Master of analogies Andy Ihnatko draws the parallels between a developer “just” switching from MobileMe to iCloud and renovating a home — as anyone who has done this knows, as soon as you start, it’s a cascade of decisions that result in more work and expense, not to mention a game of “Mother, May I?” with the authorities.Generic Globefollow link

iCloud is not for me, I don't use it for anything. Instead I use Dropbox, Fruux and several other apps over which I have complete control to accomplish things the way I want them accomplished. If I can buy an app direct from its developer, I always do, even if its available at the MAS. It's very unlikely from what I've heard so far that I'll be upgrading to the next system, I'll stick to Lion, sync my iPod Touch and iPad from iTunes and leave it at that.
