Open Recent Office 2008 Docs by Date

Office 2008 applications like Word and Excel now list recently opened documents on a File > Open Recent submenu. Choose More from that menu, and you'll get a multifunction Project Gallery dialog. Click the Recent button at the top and then select a date range in the Dates list to find files that were last opened today, yesterday, earlier in the week, last week, and so forth. (The Settings pane in the Project Gallery dialog lets you set how many recently opened files show in the File > Open Recent submenu.)

PowerBooks Get Zipped

PowerBooks Get Zipped -- Owners of PowerBooks with expansion bays - the 190, 5300, 1400, 3400, and G3 models - will finally be able to use their storehouse of Zip disks on the road without packing an external drive and its bulky power supply. VST announced last week the first shipments of its hot-swappable internal PowerBook Zip drives that read and write to Iomega's popular 100 MB disks. The long-delayed drives ship with one Zip disk containing a bootable version of Mac OS 8 pre-installed; the drive itself is ready to run out of the box, replacing the removable floppy drive or CD-ROM. The thought that an internal Zip drive might become a reality was one of the main factors that led me to purchase a 5300cs over a year ago. Suggested retail for the drives is $349.95. [JLC]
