Glenn Fleishman may not be doing as much with TidBITS since he acquired The Magazine from Marco Arment earlier this year, but he certainly isn’t lounging around. His latest effort is a Kickstarter project that’s trying to raise $48,000 so he can create a hardcover and ebook collection featuring more than 25 of the most popular stories from the Newsstand-based periodical. Our favorite reason to help crowdfund this book? Glenn will pay contributors whose work is used an additional reprint fee, which is sadly unusual in the industry. follow link

Tired of switching back and forth between Mail and your Web browser every time you click a link in a TidBITS issue or other email message? Here's an easy workaround. Hold down the Command key when you click links in Mail to open them in your browser without switching away from Mail. That way you can keep reading in Mail and then read all the Web pages you've opened.
