Email is far from hip these days. Pundits and investors alike salivate over ways to replace it with something more modern, but The Atlantic’s Alexis Madrigal argues that email is still the best part of the Internet.

Access OpenType Font Features
OpenType fonts (.otf) often have special features, such as swashes and alternate characters, that are accessible in any app that uses the OS X font panel, including Pages and TextEdit. To access them, type and select your text, press Command-T to open the font panel, and then choose Typography from the Actions pop-up menu. That shows the Typography panel, where you can toggle available options for the font and characters you've selected.
