Instead of getting coke-bottle glasses, what software is out there to zoom in on a portion of the screen?
The platform can be Windows, but something for anywhere is nice too...

If you need a lot of magnification because your legally blind or close to it check these products out. There expensive but better then the free alternatives. http://www.aisquared.com/zoomtext http://freedomscientific.com/downloads/magic/MAGic-whats-new.asp#Enhancements
Windows specifically, but I could use something anywhere.
On a Mac: Opt-Cmd-plus (well, actually: the equal sign, without any Shift) and Opt-Cmd-minus.
(Opt-Cmd-8 disables and re-enables this option. Mac developers who need to see the actual pixels rather than smooth zooming, can use Pixie as included with the Developer Tools.)
Windows comes with its own magnifier. If you're using Vista, type "Magnifier" into your search-apps bar to begin using it.
