Option-click to Hide Apps Quickly

This trick has been available in the Mac OS for years, but many people still don't know it. If you have too many windows cluttering up your screen, you can hide specific ones easily as you work. When you're in any application, hold down the Option key and click on another app's window, on the Dock, or in the Finder to switch to that other app and simultaneously hide all the windows in the previously current app.

Apple Records $152 Million Profit -- Apple announced a net profit of $152 million on $1.7 billion in revenue for its first fiscal quarter of 1999, marking Apple's fifth consecutive profitable quarter. Although the results include a one-time $29 million gain from selling holdings in ARM Ltd., Apple also sold 519,000 iMacs during the quarter, contributing to a 49 percent increase in unit shipments compared to the same quarter a year ago. Apple also wrapped up the quarter with a scant two days of inventory worth about $25 million, indicating the company continues to hone its newfound manufacturing and distribution efficiency. [GD]
