With the approach of the holiday season, we're all looking for Macintosh gifts, ranging from games to books to accessories. I'm probably going to regret this offer, but if you send me a description of the top three items that you plan to give to a friend or relative as a present, I'll compile the best of the submissions and publish it in one of the issues in December. Please limit yourself to a paragraph about each item and avoid anything that can't be easily purchased via mail order, that being the least-common denominator. To avoid hammering my personal email account, please send suggestions to <email@example.com>.
Quick Download of Multiple Attachments in Apple Mail
To download a bunch of attachments quickly, look in the header of the email message that they came in. Make sure the triangle adjacent to the paperclip icon is pointing to the right (click the triangle if needed), and then drag the paperclip icon to your Desktop or to another folder. Release the mouse button and all attachments copy to that location.
