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.

New Mouse Pad Is Solid Aluminum

Send Article to a Friend

Looking for a mouse pad that matches your aluminum Mac and keyboard? The new MacPadd is a solid piece of anodized aluminum, and well, that's about it, other than it being patent pending and having a gratuitous D in its name. There's just something amusing about a mouse pad made entirely out of metal, and we're dying to know what the company felt was worthy of patenting. It's just a piece of metal, for goodness sake.

However, and with apologies to "This is Spinal Tap," I do think MacPadd is onto something here, since in the topsy-turvy world of Mac computing, having a good solid piece of metal under your mouse is often useful. Perhaps MacPadd will branch out to other metals, like cast iron, copper, or stainless steel. In the meantime, for a mere $24.99, you can replace your neoprene mouse pad with a MacPadd that will last a lifetime and will thus amuse your grandchildren to no end. "Tell us again about when you could control a computer with a mouse, Grandpa!"
