New Look for DeBabelizer 3 -- If you think interfaces aren't important, consider Equilibrium's graphics utility DeBabelizer. Unquestionably one of the most powerful programs for opening, converting, and manipulating image files, older versions have been hampered by a confusing and intimidating user interface. The release of DeBabelizer 3, however, brings a more understandable interface and new features, including full support for CMYK images (using Apple's ColorSync technology), drag & drop batch processing, and sensible scripting that doesn't require sophisticated programming skills. The suggested retail price for DeBabelizer 3 is $599.95; owners of DeBabelizer Toolbox can upgrade for $149.95; owners who purchased DeBabelizer Toolbox 1.6.5 after 06-Jan-98 can upgrade for free by calling 800/524-8651.

Track Changes Dates Reset on Save As in Word 2008
If you regularly use the Save As feature to create new drafts while working in Word 2008, you might notice that with Track Changes enabled, previously time-stamped comments and edits have their times reset to the Save As date and time. Work around this by sticking with your original file, but using Save As (or just File > Duplicate in the Finder) to make backup copies.
