Untrash the Trash

Feeling trasher's remorse? On Snow Leopard, you can open the Trash (click the Trash icon in the Dock) and "untrash" individual items there. Select one or more trashed items (files and folders) and choose File > Put Back. This returns the items to where they were when you originally put them in the trash. The keyboard shortcut is Command-Delete - the same as the shortcut for trashing an item in the first place, since in deleting something from the trash you are untrashing it.

Send Article to a Friend

Stairways Software has released a significant update to the popular macro utility Keyboard Maestro. Version 4.0 overhauls the user interface, adds 64-bit support, and adds support for Growl notifications. Macros can now be executed when hot keys are pressed, held down, or released. Also, Command-Tab can now be used as a hot key, the program switcher can optionally hide all other programs when switching, and the clipboard switcher now offers both a search feature and display of images and rich text. Version 4.0 requires Mac OS X 10.5 or later. ($36 new, $18 upgrade, 7.6 MB)

Looks good, but with the new upgrade to BetterTouchTool (free), I know which one I'm going for.

BetterTouchTool looks neat, but it's not really comparable to Keyboard Maestro as far as I can tell. Keyboard Maestro is a full-featured macro utility that can perform a ton of actions based on numerous different triggers.

Oh my no, you're not really comparing Keyboard Maestro to BetterTouchTool, are you?
