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.

As Apple Turns

Send Article to a Friend

As Apple Turns -- With the dense fog of rumors that have cloaked Apple in the past few weeks, you might wonder where our coverage of that fog has been. We're sick of press reports about Apple that sound like bad daytime soap operas. Once actual events of importance occur, which is likely to happen at Macworld Expo, we'll write about them and what they mean. Until then, we are skipping write-ups about Steve Jobs being coy, Larry Ellison playing Jealous Deity, and rumors of Pamela Anderson taking over clone licensing negotiations. [ACE]
