Adding Links in Snow Leopard's Mail

Apple Mail in Snow Leopard now has a Command-key shortcut for adding a link to an email.

If you use plain-text email, this will not be helpful at all, but if you send styled email, it's a nice shortcut for adding URLs to your email messages. Simply select the word(s) you want to make into a link, press Command-K, and enter the URL to build into the link.

QuickTime Gets a Caffeine Boost

QuickTime Gets a Caffeine Boost -- Apple today announced the public beta release of QuickTime for Java, further extending the reach of QuickTime to any application written in Java on either the Mac OS or Windows. For the moment, QuickTime for Java will interest only developers, but Java support is an important step for Apple's goal of QuickTime ubiquity. QuickTime for Java requires that you first install MRJ 2.1 (or JRE 1.1.x or 1.2 if you're using the Windows Java Runtime Environment) and QuickTime 3.0.2 - see the QuickTime for Java installation page for links.
