More USB Support from Keyspan -- Keyspan has announced the expansion of its USB product line with the addition of a USB hub and a USB serial adapter. USB hubs enable iMac users to attach more USB devices to their iMacs - although the iMac has two USB ports, one must be used by the keyboard and mouse, and daisy-chaining too many USB devices can cause problems. The Keyspan USB hub will provide four additional USB ports for a list price of $69 in late September of 1998. Keyspan's USB serial adapter, which is scheduled to ship in October of 1998 for a list price of $79, makes it possible for iMac users to connect serial devices like graphics tablets, PalmPilots, and some printers.

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.
