Send Article to a Friend

The European pricing article in TidBITS-168 prompted a tremendous response, which I've forwarded in part to various groups, where I hope the discussion will continue. It's difficult and time-consuming for me to repost comments so please, consider posting comments to a group before sending them to me personally. If you do send them to me, please note if you DON'T want me to repost them anywhere (I avoid anything that's obviously sensitive, but I'm not omniscient).

Set up short abbreviations which expand to larger bits of text,
such as “Tx” for “TextExpander”. With the new custom keyboard,
you can expand abbreviations in any app, including Safari and
Mail. <http://smle.us/tetouch3-tb>
