Open Files with App Switcher

Using the Application Switcher to open files can sometimes be faster than hunting for an Application's window or searching through a jam packed Dock for an Application's icon. First grab your file, press Command-Tab, and then drop the file onto the desired application's icon to open it within that program.

Macworld Boston is over, and only two of the four days were utterly hot and uncomfortable. Boston drivers were, well, indescribable, and the city itself continues to bears less and less resemblance to the published maps. The netters' dinner was a success, as always, although several of us thought afterwards that we need to find a company to throw a stand-up party with food for Internet folks to facilitate mingling. My only regret is that I couldn't talk with more people at the netters' dinner - I enjoyed the company of those with whom I did spend time immensely. Several pictures were taken and I hope they appear on the nets in scanned form - pretty soon we'll tape the event and turn it into a QuickTime movie to waste even more net bandwidth than Apple's 1984 commercial.
