Fun Way to Send Attachments in Mail

If you're working in a file that you want to attach to a message in Apple Mail, you can transfer the file to Mail easily: From the title bar of the file's window, drag the little proxy icon to Mail's icon on the Dock. Your Mac will make Mail the active application and open a new outgoing message, with the file attached.

(If your icon won't drag, the file probably isn't saved.)

 
 

Mac Documentaries Showing Online and Off

Looking for some Mac-related movie viewing? Last year's documentaries "MacHEADS" and "Welcome To Macintosh" were both screened at Macworld Expo in January 2009, but, being small independent films, haven't been shown in many theaters. However, if you weren't at Macworld Expo, and haven't had a chance to see them on DVD in the meantime, you're not out of luck. (And yes, I appear in "MacHEADS" a couple of times, with lots of other familiar faces from Macworld Expo).

"MacHEADS" has aired a few times on CNBC, including repeat showings this past weekend. "Welcome to Macintosh" also ran on CNBC this month.

If you didn't catch the movies on CNBC, SnagFilms, a site dedicated to providing free streaming access to documentaries, now carries both "MacHEADS" and "Welcome to Macintosh," so you can watch them any time you want.

Similarly, the TV site Hulu has "MacHEADS," and Netflix subscribers can also stream "Welcome to Macintosh."
