Apple's New Technology Gap -- Apple Computer has appointed Millard "Mickey" Drexler to its board of directors. Drexler isn't in the computer business; rather, he's the chairman and CEO of Gap, Inc., a worldwide clothing and apparel retailer that's also behind the well-known Banana Republic and Old Navy clothing brands. Apple apparently hopes to leverage Drexler's consumer and retail marketing experience to expand Apple's user base and product appeal. Anyone for a khaki iMac? [GD]
Close Word Comments Easily
If you don't like how precisely you must mouse in Microsoft Word 2008 to delete comment balloons, note that you can Control-click (right-click) a balloon to pop up a contextual menu. From the menu choose Delete Comment, and you're done.
Also, to get rid of all comments at once, choose Tools > Customize Keyboard and set up a keyboard shortcut to go with the DeleteAllComments command, available in the Tools category. Oddly, there's no Delete Comment keyboard customization option that I can find.
