Poll Preview: On the Road Again -- Later in this issue, Jeff Carlson looks at some devices that make a Palm organizer more useful on the road. You'll have to read on to see if Jeff decides he can use his Palm in favor of his PowerBook, but we're curious what computing and communication devices you find the most useful when you're travelling. Whether you consider yourself a high-tech road warrior or a low-tech Luddite, tell us what you prefer to use on our home page! (For the purposes of this poll, consider yourself to be "travelling" whenever you're doing work away from your normal workplace - you don't have to go as far as Gideon Greenspan did in his Working off the Beaten Track articles!)

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.
