Untrash the Trash

Feeling trasher's remorse? On Snow Leopard, you can open the Trash (click the Trash icon in the Dock) and "untrash" individual items there. Select one or more trashed items (files and folders) and choose File > Put Back. This returns the items to where they were when you originally put them in the trash. The keyboard shortcut is Command-Delete - the same as the shortcut for trashing an item in the first place, since in deleting something from the trash you are untrashing it.

Brian Hall <mspace@netcom.com> writes about General Magic's Magic Cap:

A product using Magic Cap has been shown - the Motorola Envoy. Motorola had a large island booth at Mobile '94 recently, and they had seven or eight third-party developers showing off applications. They were also accepting applications to participate in their developer program. There were some spreadsheets, some communications applications, and others that did not catch my eye. I spent most of my time talking to the developer evangelist and the representative from America Online. They had an America Online email and stock client running on the Envoy. Nice, but as I don't follow stocks on America Online and prefer my email to be sent to my Internet address, that is of limited use to me. A full client would be great, especially considering that they work wireless. When I saw the first screen shots in MacWEEK I thought, "Great! Black and white hollow images. A coloring book!" However, when you actually sit down and use the device, it is much better.
