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.

PowerBook 5300 System Update

Send Article to a Friend

PowerBook 5300 System Update -- Apple has released a new set of system disks for the PowerBook 5300 series. Although this isn't the much-anticipated System 7.5 Update 2.0, it includes many components expected to be in that release; highlights include Finder 7.5.4, an improved emulator, more PowerPC native system components for better performance, and fixes to the PC Card modem extension and the application launching process (which particularly help Word and Excel).

The update is available in two forms - as a net install or as 14 floppy disk images - and weighs in at a whopping 20 MB. (That's over 90 minutes download time on a 28.8 Kbps modem.) See the ReadMe file before you begin downloading; if you saved the disk images that came with your PowerBook, you don't need the entire update. There have also been reports of corrupted downloads and users needing to remove or delete their Finder Preferences file after installing the update. The update can be used on PowerBook 5300s and 190s, the Duo 2300, and PowerBooks and Duos with PowerPC Upgrades. Right now, rumor suggests that the update only works with U.S. systems, so users of international system versions should check newsgroups like <comp.sys.mac.portables> to see if there's any information on using the update with a particular system.
