Newton Connection Utilities 1.0 -- In TidBITS-379, David Gewirtz complained that a beta version of Newton Connection Utilities shipped with the MessagePad 2000 (and the eMate 300). Apple just released an updater to Newton Connection Utilities 1.0, which updates NCU 1.0b6 to version 1.0. If you've used the beta version to synchronize between your PDA and desktop machine, Apple recommends that you run another synchronization right before updating NCU. The download weights in at 4.8 MB. [ACE]
Open Links from Mail in the Background
Tired of switching back and forth between Mail and your Web browser every time you click a link in a TidBITS issue or other email message? Here's an easy workaround. Hold down the Command key when you click links in Mail to open them in your browser without switching away from Mail. That way you can keep reading in Mail and then read all the Web pages you've opened.
