Find Next Without Using the Find Dialog in Word 2008

Rarely do you want to find just one instance of a word or phrase in Word. Instead of trying to keep Word 2008's Find and Replace dialog showing while searching, which can be awkward on a small screen, try the Next Find control. After you've found the term you're looking for once, click the downward-pointing double arrow button at the bottom of the vertical scroll bar to find the next instance of your search term. The upward-pointing double arrow finds the previous instance, which is way easier than switching to Current Document Up in the expanded Find and Replace dialog.

 
 

iPhone Now Available in 43 Countries

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has launched the iPhone in 21 more countries, bringing the total to 43. Reuters reported that Russia will also get the iPhone in October 2008, and we're sure additional countries will come online as Apple negotiates deals with local carriers. Apple's plans for world domination are well underway.

Much has been made about the fact that the iPhone will now be available to 660 million potential customers, but that's pure hyperbole - there's no way to know how it will sell in any given market or what deal Apple will strike with local carriers. What I'll find more interesting is the effect on sales in the App Store; increasing the iPhone installed base by even a million here or there could result in significantly more sales for individual apps.
