It's a Whole New Yahoo -- In news that made it all the way to CNN last week, Yahoo! Corporation - maintainers of arguably the most widely-used catalog of the World Wide Web - announced they will be introducing a new interface on 31-Jul-95, along with directly incorporating hourly wire service newsfeeds from Reuters. Yahoo's new interface sports small graphic elements and a bare-bones search form right on the top page; also, the number of major categories has been reduced from 19 to 14, and Netscape 1.1 users are treated to a two-column display of major topic headings. (Yes, a text version is still available.) Yahoo has been picking up corporate sponsors in an effort to remain free to Web users - it's grown from a two-person effort to a company with a couple dozen employees . Yahoo's new interface should be available today at Yahoo's usual URL, but if they're running a little behind, check out their beta site. [GD]
File Email with a Key in Apple Mail
In Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or later, you can use the simple and fun MsgFiler Mail plug-in to file Mail messages using keyboard shortcuts.
New in Apple Mail 4 (the 10.6 Snow Leopard version), to assign a keyboard shortcut to any mailbox on the Move To or Copy To submenu, you can also open the Keyboard pane of System Preferences, click Keyboard Shortcuts, and select Application Shortcuts in the list on the left. Click the + button, choose Mail from the Application pop-up menu, type the name of the mailbox in the Menu Title field, click in the Keyboard Shortcut field, and press the keystroke combination you want to use. Then click Add.
