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.)

Due to being heads-down in publication and development work, only one external article — news of GadgetTrak being able to file police reports — caught our attention this week.

GadgetTrak Adds Integrated Police Report Filing -- GadgetTrak has added a feature that enables users to file police reports directly from within the theft recovery service’s Web-based control panel. Over 150 police agencies in the United States offer online filing of police reports, and if your GadgetTrak-enabled device is lost within one of those areas, you can now more quickly involve law enforcement in your loss.
