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.)

Princeton Suggests Workaround for iPad DHCP Flaw

Other (but worse) possibilities include turning off Wi-Fi or the entire iPad at the end of each session.Generic Globefollow link
