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.

iSync 1.1 Supports More Phones, Safari Bookmarks -- Apple has released iSync 1.1, its Mac OS X-only technology for synchronizing contacts, calendars, and other information across multiple computers and other devices (see "Jaguar, iCal, and iSync Appear" in TidBITS-639). Version 1.1 adds support for several new mobile phones and can synchronize Safari bookmarks between computers by way of a .Mac account (a feature you can emulate with the free JeepSafari if, for some reason, you don't want to install iSync). iSync 1.1 is available via Software Update or as a 5.3 MB download. iSync 1.1 requires Mac OS X 10.2 or newer and iCal 1.0.2 or newer; synchronizing to Palm devices requires a separate iSync 1.1 Palm Conduit available as a link on the iSync download page.
