The organizers of this year's Macworld Expo seem to believe an old saying about New York City: it's a great place to visit, but you wouldn't want to live there. In an announcement 09-Jul-98, IDG Expo Management Co. revealed that the east coast venue of the event will return to Boston's World Trade Center/Seaport Hotel Complex next year between 04-Aug-99 to 06-Aug-99. This year's New York Expo, dubbed "the Creative World," was initially aimed at attracting more creative professionals. Representatives of IDG Expo Management say they expect to pair that focus with Apple's renewed appeal in the consumer arena (embodied in the flashy presence of the iMac) at the Boston event. This year's New York Expo also disappointed some attendees with a small show floor featuring comparatively few vendors, in part due to high exhibition costs.
Avoid Naming Pear Note Files
If you create a lot of documents, coming up with a name for them can sometimes be a hassle. This is especially true now that search is becoming a more prevalent way to find documents. Pear Note provides a way to have the application automatically generate a filename so you can avoid this hassle. To use this:
- Open Saving under Pear Note's preferences.
- Select a default save location.
- Select a default save name template (Pear Note's help documents all the fields that can be automatically filled in).
- Check the box stating that Command-S saves without prompting.
- If you decide you want to name a particular note later, just use Save As... instead.
