Go Back and Forth Fast in Preview

If you're reading a PDF in Apple's Preview software, and you follow a bookmark or an internal link to move around within the PDF, you can quickly return to where you were by pressing the keyboard shortcut Command-[ (that's Command-Left Bracket). Or, you can choose Go > Back.

The command works iteratively, so you can go back to just the previously viewed page or if you issue the command again, to the page before that, and so on. There's also an equivalent Go > Forward (Command-]).

Boomerang, the clever service for Gmail that enables you to send messages at specific times and reminds you if you haven’t received a reply to a message you’ve sent, has left beta and developed pricing plans. Boomerang remains free to use for up to 10 messages per month, but personal accounts (for normal Gmail) now cost $4.99 per month and professional accounts (for Google Apps accounts) cost $14.99 per month.Generic Globefollow link
