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.

MacTech Boot Camps Come to Los Angeles and Chicago

Send Article to a Friend

With each of the MacTech Boot Camps in San Francisco, Dallas, and Boston selling out, Mac consultants and support techs in Los Angeles and Chicago can now look forward to events in their cities. And if you’re a bit further away, the MacTech Boot Camp Los Angeles on 27 July 2011 takes place at the Sheraton Gateway near LAX (Los Angeles International Airport), making it easy to fly in for the day. MacTech Boot Camp Chicago is a month later, on 31 August 2011, at the Hotel Allegro in downtown Chicago.

MacTech Boot Camp is a single-track, hotel-based seminar designed to serve the needs of consultants and techs, with high-quality technical and business content from experts combined with opportunities for networking with other consultants and vendors. Speakers for the Los Angeles event include Ben Levy, Phil Goodman, Ric Wilson, Sean Colins, Chris Keller, Jonathan Goldhill, and Peter Linde.

MacTech Boot Camp normally costs $495, and although early-bird pricing has expired for the Los Angeles event, TidBITS readers can still take advantage of the $200 discount thanks to our media sponsor status, dropping the price to $295. The TidBITS-specific pricing also applies to the Chicago event. Since all the events so far have sold out, it’s best not to wait too long to register.
