How to use #Excel to calculate when #Thanksgiving falls on any year: it falls on the 4th Thursday in November, so we find what day of the week November 1st is, then add enough days. We do this by nesting the Date, Weekday and Choose functions. This year, November 1st was a Tuesday, so Thanksgiving is the 24th.

Put the year (2016) in A2, then enter this formula in any cell:

=DATE(A2,11,CHOOSE(WEEKDAY(DATE(A2,11,1)),26,25,24,23,22,28,27))

We can even create a table. Enter some years down a column, then in an adjacent column, AutoFill this formula down the column.

Take pictures that have a depth of field using your #iPhone 7 Plus with iOS 10.

#photography #iOS10
The new Portrait mode in iOS 10 gives your pictures a depth of field that the regular Photo mode doesn't. Like with a camera that has an adjustable aperture, Portrait mode focuses on the person or object in the foreground and slightly blurs out the background. You'll find this feature only on ...

The next edition of #Windows10 will be called the Creator's Update and have #3D and #VR capabilities built in. Even Windows Paint will have the ability to convert a photo into 3D.

Did you follow the viral video that shows how to drill a hole in your #iPhone 7 to create a headphone jack? You can make your phone work again by charging it in the microwave.

Video tutorial: how to combine and trim shapes in Adobe #Illustrator Creative Cloud visually and interactively, using the Shape Builder tool. Works in Mac and Windows. This is an update to a tutorial from a few years ago, since Adobe enhanced the tool's functionality.

Cool #photography tip to take pictures of the night sky with your #iPhone: cover the lens and hold your finger on the screen until you see the "AE/AF LOCK" message. Now remove your fingers and take the picture. The lock gets released after you take the picture, so you have to do the two-finger thing each time.

+TechSmith just announced a major update of Camtasia screen recording and editing software. It now runs cross-platform nearly identically in #Windows and #Mac, has a modernized UI, big asset library, pre-made behaviors for objects, direct editing of text on screen and more. Will be available next month. This is the software I use to record most of my courses.

Soon: Twitter will no longer count characters for media attachments and "@names" in replies. Also there will no longer be a need for .@ in message beginnings. All your followers will be able to see all your tweets. But URLs and quote tweets will continue to reserve 23 characters.

Not just a bakery! The baked goods are some of the best you'll find, but Baker's Treat has excellent breakfast and lunch items, too, including vegetarian fare.
