Shorten URLs in TextExpander

If your Twitter client doesn't automatically shorten URLs for you, you can use TextExpander to shrink those long links to tweetable lengths. First, add the Internet Productivity group by choosing File > Add Predefined Group > Internet Productivity Snippets. Then, to shorten a URL using a service like TinyURL, copy the destination URL to the clipboard, and type the abbreviation /tinyurl to insert the shortened URL at the insertion point.

Psion Updates -- Patrick Edmond <edmond@quincy.inria.fr> writes: "As a Psion Series 3 owner, I can echo Charlie Stross's comments in TidBITS #203 about the usefulness of the Psion machine. One little correction though: the mailing list mentioned is no longer in operation."

Jack Kobzeff <jkobzeff@sybil.jpl.nasa.gov> writes: "You can purchase the Psion Series 3 for a list price of $399 from Psion's U.S. direct sales arm. For information and other pricing call 508/371-9875," and Masato Ogawa <ogawa@ga.sony.co.jp> noted that CompUSA and Fry's Electronics also carry the Psion, according to an ad in a recent PC Magazine.
