Adding Links in Snow Leopard's Mail

Apple Mail in Snow Leopard now has a Command-key shortcut for adding a link to an email.

If you use plain-text email, this will not be helpful at all, but if you send styled email, it's a nice shortcut for adding URLs to your email messages. Simply select the word(s) you want to make into a link, press Command-K, and enter the URL to build into the link.

Cheap Macs Via Apple Employees

Send Article to a Friend

Cheap Macs Via Apple Employees -- Through 31-Mar-96, Apple is running a program that allows employees to purchase up to four Macs, four Newtons, and four printers at seriously low prices. The program is specifically designed to make it easy for Apple employees to buy Macs for friends and relatives (the employee can order the equipment, and it will be shipped to the recipient and charged to the recipient's credit card). The limitations are that the Apple employees cannot resell the equipment for a profit, they can't sell it to dealers, and they must be able to account for the exact whereabouts of the equipment for a year. So, if you know an Apple employee who might be willing to do you a favor, drop her a line and see if she can send you the price list. Please do not harass anyone about this - the Apple employee may have already used up the quota, may not have the time, or may simply be uncomfortable with ordering the equipment for you. In case you don't believe me, the URL below leads to the original message from Guy Kawasaki's EvangeList (for more information about EvangeList, send email to <macway-request@solutions.apple.com>).
