Copy Before Submitting Web Forms

Filling in Web forms (like the one used to submit this tip) can be a bit of a gamble - you put in your pearls of wisdom, perhaps only to lose them all if the Web page flakes out or the browser crashes. Instead of losing all your text, "save" it by pressing Command-A to select all and then Command-C to copy the selected text to the clipboard. Do this periodically as you type and before you click Submit, and you may "save" yourself from a lot of frustration. It takes just a second to do, and the first time you need to rely on it to paste back in lost text, you'll feel smart.

iTunes 10.4

Send Article to a Friend

Apple’s iTunes has been bumped to version 10.4, receiving no user-level changes but gaining a 64-bit foundation for maximum performance on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion; the update also includes several unspecified performance and stability improvements. Apple notes that, due to the architectural changes entailed by the move to 64-bit, third-party plug-ins may stop working with this version of iTunes; if that happens, contact the individual plug-in developers for help. (Free, 90.23 MB, release notes)

Is it me, or does iTunes 10.4 break the use of cmd-shift [ and ] to move between parts of the Info window? They now go to the previous/next library items.

I had a big bad effect when I upgraded to 10.4! I couldn't get into the iTunes store after the dounload. After hours of debugging, reinstalling snow leopard from the origional disc, and finally going to the genius bar at the Salem, NH Apple store, a third party plug in was discovered in my root directory. Jax from proSoft software was sitting where i installed it, (and never really used), We trashed it and all was well. Those Apple geniuses lived up to their name again!
