In this week's installment of Hacking the Press, Adam sheds more light on the inner workings of the computer media with an examination of different types of editorial coverage. We also recap a pair of TidBITS events at Macworld Expo, announce a new sponsor, and take a quick look at icWord, a $20 utility that lets you view and print recent Microsoft Word documents. Finally, we offer another quiz whose results could improve your productivity!
