Compare More Easily in Apple Mail

In Apple Mail, if you need to work back and forth between two different views of Mail's mailbox contents, you can do so quite easily. For example, you might want to look at a mailbox holding all filtered-in sales orders from the past week while also looking at a smart mailbox showing unanswered customer questions.

To avoid constantly clicking between mailbox views and losing your context each time, choose File > New Viewer window to get a second window and then arrange each window as desired.

This article is a pre-release chapter in the upcoming “Take Control of Apple TV,” by Josh Centers, scheduled for public release in February 2014. Apart from “Chapter 1: Introducing Apple TV,” these chapters are available only to TidBITS members; see “‘Take Control of Apple TV’ Streaming in TidBITS” for details.


Do More with Apple TV

Over the course of this book, you’ve learned all about what Apple designed the Apple TV to do: how to watch videos, listen to music, and take full advantage of AirPlay’s power.

What’s left to try are advanced hacks like super-charging your Apple TV with Plex, working around regional restrictions that prevent people in one part of the world from watching video aimed at another, and even turning your Apple TV into a digital video recorder for capturing broadcast video. I’ll be talking about Unix commands, DNS configuration, and things Apple never intended you to do with the Apple TV.

Put on your hard hat and follow me… if you dare. And if you don’t, because some of this stuff gets pretty geeky, that’s totally fine — I won’t hold it against you in any way.

The rest of this 6,531-word article is currently restricted to paid TidBITS members. If you’d like to support our work and become a paid member, it's an easy process and we'll throw in some additional perks.
