Stop Eye Strain in Excel 2008

You can make text bigger in Excel by zooming to a larger percentage with the Zoom control in the toolbar, or by selecting the cells containing too-small text, choosing Format > Cells (Command-1), and then setting options in the Font pane. You can also increase the default font size for new sheets by modifying the Size field (next to the Standard Font field) in the General pane of Excel's preferences.

 
 

Apple Design Award 2006 Winners

Send Article to a Friend

Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) wrapped up this year with the annual Apple Design Award winners, who received not only fame and Mac developer cred, but a special cube award that lights up when touched. (How is this illuminated miracle accomplished? The winners of the 2004 award for best student project didn't merely take theirs apart like any normal person; they peeked inside using a CT scanner and built 3D reconstructed models, of course!)

Congratulations to this year's winners, and we encourage you to visit their Web sites to get a sense of why they were chosen.
