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.

I just ordered a pair of the Yamaha YST-M10 speakers that Craig O'Donnell mentioned in TidBITS #216. The YST series is Yamaha's part number for its cables; the first two dealers I talked to were puzzled by that. When I mentioned that I'd read about it in a computer magazine, they guessed correctly that the YST-M10 is a special model for computers that comes with the right cable. Dealers without the latest catalogs from Yamaha might not know this.

More interestingly, I found the speakers advertised in CDW's catalog (part number CDW 33070) for $89, but they'd lowered the price to $69 plus shipping, which is $30 lower than the next-lowest advertised price that I found.

CDW -- 800/906-4CDW
