iMovie HD 5.0.1 Addresses Audio Sync Issues -- Apple on 27-Jan-05 released iMovie HD 5.0.1, which fixes unspecified audio and video synchronization issues. According to Apple, you should apply the patch if your iMovie HD projects include "DV Widescreen assets [16:9 footage], titles, transitions, or video effects" ...which describes pretty much any iMovie project. The update is available as a 2.4 MB download via Software Update. [JLC]
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.
