Aladdin Revs Up -- Aladdin Systems has acquired publishing rights to 6prime's Rev, the $99.95 easy-to-use revision control software I reviewed back in TidBITS-362. Rev saves intermediate versions of frequently saved documents, making it possible to return to one of those intermediate versions in case of otherwise irrevocable mistakes. Even though Nisus Writer provides unlimited undos that work through saves, I still use Rev with documents I work on frequently, and on several occasions Rev has saved me from recreating work. I'm pleased to see Aladdin picking up Rev so it can benefit from the additional support. [ACE]

Do you ever find that you don't have time to read those long email missives from Aunt Carol, but really do want to see the photos that she has lovingly attached? In Apple Mail, click the Quick Look button located in the message header. You'll get an easily browsed view of just the attached photos, and you can even add them to iPhoto, if you like!
