Palm Desktop 2.6.3 Supports Newest Handhelds -- Palm has released Palm Desktop 2.6.3, a small update that primarily provides compatibility with the latest Palm devices running Palm OS 4.0. The new version updates Palm's HotSync synchronization software to improve data transfers using the m500 series' Universal USB Connector, plus adds the capability to transfer files to an expansion card (see "Palm Announces Thin Color m505" in TidBITS-573). The update also fixes a problem with the Instant Palm Desktop extension. Palm Desktop 2.6.3 is a free update, and is a 6.1 MB download. [JLC]
Stylin' a Word Comment Balloon
If you work with Word's Comment feature, you may find that the comment-balloon text is too small to work with, or you may just want some variety. To modify the style, choose Format > Style. From the List pop-up menu, choose All Styles. Select Balloon Text from the Style list. Modify the style as you like, and then click Apply. I like Arial Narrow, 12 point.
