Fun Way to Send Attachments in Mail

If you're working in a file that you want to attach to a message in Apple Mail, you can transfer the file to Mail easily: From the title bar of the file's window, drag the little proxy icon to Mail's icon on the Dock. Your Mac will make Mail the active application and open a new outgoing message, with the file attached.

(If your icon won't drag, the file probably isn't saved.)

 
 

Adobe Flash Player 13.0.0.206

Send Article to a Friend

Quickly responding to yet another critical security vulnerability, Adobe has updated the Mac version of the standalone Flash Player to version 13.0.0.206. According to this Adobe security bulletin, the update patches an exploit that has been used to target Flash Player users on the Windows platform to take control of a system remotely. But because this threat can also be exploited on Mac (and Linux) systems, Adobe recommends all users update Flash Player for Mac 13.0.0.201 and earlier to this new release. To see which version of Flash you have installed, visit this Adobe page. If you use the Google Chrome Web browser, make sure to close and restart it to get Chrome 34.0.1847.131, which includes Flash Player 13.0.0.206. (Free, 15 MB, release notes, 10.6+)

I think it's safe to assume that _every_ version of Flash has a critical security vulnerability.
