Option-Click in Scroll Bars for Jump Scrolling

In Mac OS X in general, and thus in most native Mac OS X applications, hold down the Option key and click anywhere in a window's scroll bar to jump to that spot (rather than scrolling one screen). If you like this behavior, you can make it the default in the Appearance preference pane. For "Click in the scroll bar to:" select "Jump to here."

 
 

La Cie Recalls Drives

Send Article to a Friend

La Cie Recalls Drives -- While perusing my Navigator session on CompuServe, I noticed this warning in the Macintosh Hardware forum. I'm currently unable to confirm this due to the timing, but it appears that La Cie has recalled 1,900 of their new 340 MB Tsunami hard drives. The recall applies to drives that La Cie shipped before 21-Jan-94, which apparently had a problem in their ROMs that can result in corrupted files and memory problems. If your drive shipped after 21-Jan-94 and has a sticker "E" under the number "340," it's OK.

La Cie -- 800/288-9919 -- 503/520-1266
