So how's that OS X Mountain Lion working out for everyone, one day later? We're seeing an annoying issue with our MacBook Pro with Retina Display losing track of our USB 3.0 hub whenever the notebook sleeps, but otherwise it's been smooth sailing. Speaking of sailing, have you flown over L.A. or Boston or even San Francisco lately? Now you can, thanks to Google Earth 7.0. This and a few other tidbits make up our recap for Thursday, July 26, 2012.
Although early reports claimed that Microsoft would introduce a new 2013 edition of Office to match the one it showed off for Windows earlier this week, the company has since confirmed that's not the case.
Seems as if any time a notable iOS developer makes the leap to the Mac, it's worthy of headlines -- and that's certainly true with the alpha version of Tweetbot for Mac introduced today. If you've already sworn your allegiance to Tweetbot on the iPhone, iPod touch or iPad, it's pretty much of a no-brainer. So let's not waste any time here, you'll want to read all about it so you can get to downloading that much quicker on this Wednesday, July 11, 2012.
Despite having pushed out two other software updates to Office for Mac in recent weeks, Microsoft has issued a critical fix for a vulnerability affecting a number of its products which could allow remote code execution just by opening a rogue Office file.
That sweet little iPad app you see there in the corner could very well be Spotify, which currently tops our list of iOS apps that really need a tabletized update. As Premium members, we look forward to blasting a barrage of ‘80s one-hit wonders from our iPad, and doubling up the screen resolution of the existing iPhone/iPod touch app simply won’t do (although it does look quite clean on our new iPad, FWIW). While we are waiting for Spotify’s special event on Wednesday, let’s kick back and soak in the day’s news for this lazy Monday, April 16, 2012.
So many people have touted Office 2011 and especially the fact that they brought back Visual Basic and Macros in Excel. What I can’t seem to figure out is how to apply “Relational” to macros instead of the default “Absolute.” Not being able to run macros in Relational mode makes Visual Basic pretty much useless for me and I would imagine many others. Am I missing something?
Microsoft Word has had something of a rocky history with Mac owners, although by and large the folks in Redmond appear to have succeeded in pleasing the majority of users with the latest 2011 edition released in October of last year. Here are a few ways to make the most of the slick new version, including a few hidden gems.
We feel your pain, Office 2011 users--and so does Microsoft. While the release last fall of Microsoft’s seminal productivity suite took great strides in bringing Outlook, Excel, Word, and PowerPoint for Mac into parity with the Windows versions, it also fell woefully short in a few key areas. Help is on the way as an SP1 update for Office 2011 will be released next week, and the main new feature is improved syncing. But there’s a catch…
I have been searching for a way to print my mom’s Address Book on perforated Rolodex cards -- at age 85, she is very low tech. Is there any shareware or freeware that can do this, or a handy way to do it myself with Pages or Word?
