Copy Before Submitting Web Forms

Filling in Web forms (like the one used to submit this tip) can be a bit of a gamble - you put in your pearls of wisdom, perhaps only to lose them all if the Web page flakes out or the browser crashes. Instead of losing all your text, "save" it by pressing Command-A to select all and then Command-C to copy the selected text to the clipboard. Do this periodically as you type and before you click Submit, and you may "save" yourself from a lot of frustration. It takes just a second to do, and the first time you need to rely on it to paste back in lost text, you'll feel smart.

PowerBook Price Drop

Send Article to a Friend

PowerBook Price Drop -- When Apple lowers prices, it often heralds the upcoming release of new models. Even so, if you've had your eyes on a 500-series PowerBook, you might want to check out the new pricing. Effective since 13-Feb-95, Apple has reduced prices 14 to 17 percent for models sold in the U.S. (Sorry, we don't have information about outside the U.S.) To sweeten the deal, Apple also plans to give away a free carrying case with any PowerBook purchased from 15-Feb-95 through 31-Mar-95. The table below shows official "Apple Price" pricing information for the price reduction. [TJE]
