Poll Results: Grading Mac OS X -- It's a bit hard to analyze the results of last week's poll asking how you'd grade Mac OS X. I was intrigued to see that the number of people who rated Mac OS X more highly than I did was almost the same as the number who rated it less highly, giving some level of credence to my grade. The most common grades were a B+ (from 25 percent of the respondents) and a B- (from 21 percent). Subsequent discussion on TidBITS Talk left most of my grades alone, except for the Internationalization grade. Quite a number of people from other countries wrote in with their frustrating experiences with Mac OS X, and although they agreed that the foundations were solid, they felt Apple had a long way to go before an A- would be justified. With that feedback, I'd probably drop the Internationalization grade to a B, but that wouldn't be sufficient to affect my overall grade. [ACE]
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.
