Extend Mac OS X's Screenshots
Mac OS X has a variety of built in screenshot methods. Here's a look at a few that offer more versatility than the basic full-screen capture (Command-Shift-3):
• Press Command-Shift-4 and you'll get a crosshair cursor with which you can drag to select and capture a certain area of the screen.
• Press Command-Shift-4-Space to select the entire window that the cursor is over, clicking on the window will then capture it. The resulting screenshot will even get a nice drop shadow.
• Hold down the Space bar after dragging out a selection window to move your selection rectangle around on the screen.
• Hold down Shift after dragging out a selection to constrain the selection in either horizontal or vertical orientation, depending on the direction of your drag.
• Hold down Option after dragging out a selection to expand the selection window around a center point.

Postbox looks promising, maybe even very promising, but for one glaring detail: no iOS support. Am I missing something?
I've been forwarding my (too many) email addresses to a gmail catchall, then filtering these by content, subject, addressee, etc., into various tags for gmail, Mailplane, and gmail's iOS app.
I'd used Eudora since the late '80s (until Rosetta died) as an historic database. It was terrific. Licenses, invoices, negotiations, etc., were easily stored and found. AND annotated.
I could also send mail from any of my email addresses without going through all the crap gmail forces me to do.
I followed Adam's path to gmail, but for reasons above, and the terribly slow appearance of POPped mail, I gotta go.
But without an iOS version, I might not be able to use Postbox.
Any thoughts from those who might know?
Why not point Postbox at Gmail from the Mac, and use the Gmail app on iOS?
I know I've got to move to IMAP. Promise, I will. I'm a slow adopter; mistrust of clouds, etc. Burned several times by mobile me.
But POP is not the only source of my problems with gmail.
If I were to switch to Postbox, I'd cut the cord with gmail and use IMAP directly with my mail server and suffer with webmail on the iOS devices.
I know, I know. I want everything my way. Sorry.
