Option-Click in Scroll Bars for Jump Scrolling

In Mac OS X in general, and thus in most native Mac OS X applications, hold down the Option key and click anywhere in a window's scroll bar to jump to that spot (rather than scrolling one screen). If you like this behavior, you can make it the default in the Appearance preference pane. For "Click in the scroll bar to:" select "Jump to here."


New List Prices

Send Article to a Friend

I know that list prices aren't as useful as the street prices, But we don't know what the street prices will be, and they are likely to fluctuate until distribution settles down and everything is readily available. For what it's worth, then... (compare with the table in TidBITS-143 - you do use Easy View so it's easy to go back to old issues, no?). The prices that interest me the most are the relatively low prices for the Duos, especially in comparison to the 145, 160, and 180. It makes sense because the Duos have no floppy drives and fewer ports, but I'm still slightly surprised Apple didn't increase the price for them simply because they are new and cool.
