Track Changes Dates Reset on Save As in Word 2008

If you regularly use the Save As feature to create new drafts while working in Word 2008, you might notice that with Track Changes enabled, previously time-stamped comments and edits have their times reset to the Save As date and time. Work around this by sticking with your original file, but using Save As (or just File > Duplicate in the Finder) to make backup copies.

"Take Control of .Mac" Updated to Cover iLife '06 -- Joe Kissell has been hard at work ever since Macworld Expo, adding 22 pages to his comprehensive "Take Control of .Mac" to cover the changes Apple unveiled in Steve Jobs's keynote. Most notable is the information Joe added to cover the ways you can use .Mac with the iLife '06 applications, including instructions on how to create Web sites and blogs with iWeb, photocasting with iPhoto 6, and publishing podcasts and video podcasts with GarageBand 3 and iMovie HD 6. Other new details include instructions for accessing your iDisk using the new browser-based interface, information about Apple's optional upgrade to 4 GB of iDisk storage and 250 GB per month of data transfer, and the increased flexibility in dividing space between iDisk and messages. Joe also updated his discussion of .Mac Groups with information about group slideshows, browser-based access to the group's iDisk, using iWeb to publish group Web pages, more-flexible storage space allocation, and recent interface changes. If you're using .Mac, you won't find a better or more up-to-date source of documentation on how to use it, particularly in conjunction with the just-released iLife '06 applications. But, as much as we'd love it if you'd purchase a copy right away, we'd be remiss if we didn't tell you to go check out your .Mac Member Benefit for February first - it will be worth your while to do so!
