Cull Graphics Quickly with Preview

You're faced with a folder full of images, and you need to sort through them, trashing some number and keeping the rest. For a quick way to do that, select them all, and open them in Preview (in Leopard, at least). You'll get a single window with each graphic as an item in the drawer. Use the arrow keys to move from image to image, and when you see one you want to trash, press Command-Delete to move it from its source folder to the Finder's Trash. (Delete by itself just removes the picture from Preview's drawer.)

Postbox has released version 3.0.8 of its eponymous email client, using the integrated graphics processor exclusively on MacBook Pro models that have dual GPUs in order to reduce power usage and thus save some battery life. The update also adds a Run Filters on Folder toolbar button, ensures that Notification Center alerts link directly to messages, displays the account name next to the folder name in the message pane, and adds automatic account configuration support for iCloud email accounts. Plus, it fixes an issue with Growl integration, a crash when indexing, and a crash when importing from Thunderbird. ($9.95 new, free update, 21.5 MB, release notes)
