Adding Links in Snow Leopard's Mail

Apple Mail in Snow Leopard now has a Command-key shortcut for adding a link to an email.

If you use plain-text email, this will not be helpful at all, but if you send styled email, it's a nice shortcut for adding URLs to your email messages. Simply select the word(s) you want to make into a link, press Command-K, and enter the URL to build into the link.

Best Giveaway: Video Toaster Tape

Send Article to a Friend

NewTek carries this award with their Video Toaster demo videotape, which is about ten minutes of snazzy effects and animations, all done with the Video Toaster. The Toaster grows more and more impressive, and as I see it each year, I keep lusting after one until I realize that I will never do video production. It's just not a hobby I'm likely to get into in my copious spare time. I'll depend on others for my Video Toast. (Quick quiz: Which makes darker toast, a Video Toaster or a Flying Toaster?)
