Copy Before Submitting Web Forms

Filling in Web forms (like the one used to submit this tip) can be a bit of a gamble - you put in your pearls of wisdom, perhaps only to lose them all if the Web page flakes out or the browser crashes. Instead of losing all your text, "save" it by pressing Command-A to select all and then Command-C to copy the selected text to the clipboard. Do this periodically as you type and before you click Submit, and you may "save" yourself from a lot of frustration. It takes just a second to do, and the first time you need to rely on it to paste back in lost text, you'll feel smart.

Apple Introduces New Hardware and Software

Send Article to a Friend

Today, October 19th, was an important day for Macintosh users. If you don't know the significance of the date, you've been hiding under a non-Macintosh rock for some time. Apple today officially announced several much-anticipated new machines and software. We have already published many of the details and interesting aspects of the new products before these announcements, so you may wish to go back and check some of the previous issues, especially for information about the PowerBook Duos and System 7.1. In an effort to minimize repetition in the articles below, I will only touch on new or truly important features. Future issues should shed more light on the details in future issues too, so keep an eye out.

You may have noticed that this issue bears no date, and in fact, we decided to limit it to articles about Apple's new products because we had far too much information for a single issue. Look for TidBITS-148/19-Oct-92 later this week with usual sort of news, reviews, comments, and opinions.
