Avoid Simple Typos

If, like me, you find yourself typing 2911 in place of 2011 entirely too often, you can have Mac OS X (either Lion or Snow Leopard) fix such typos for you automatically. Just open the Language & Text pane of System Preferences, click the Text button at the top, and then add a text substitution by clicking the + button underneath the list. It won't work everywhere (for that you'll want a utility like Smile's TextExpander), but it should work in applications like Pages and TextEdit, and in Save dialog boxes.

Mac Users Willing to Upgrade to Win95?

It appears the folks at Ziff-Davis publishing are surveying computer users about their willingness to upgrade to Windows 95. This survey is accessible on the Web at the Ziff-Davis site. In jest, I took the survey, but I was surprised to discover that they seem to expect Macintosh users to respond. So, through the survey, it was duly noted that I'm comfortable with my iteration of System 7, and that I'm not interested in upgrading to an OS that won't run on my computer. [These surveys are never statistically valid because of the way the data are collected, so hey, stop in and let Ziff-Davis know what you as a Mac user think of Windows 95. -Adam]
