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.

Apple Releases OpenGL 1.0 for Mac OS

Apple Releases OpenGL 1.0 for Mac OS -- Following up on its promise from last January's Macworld Expo, Apple has released OpenGL 1.0 for the Mac OS. OpenGL is an application programming interface (API) for two- and three-dimensional graphics originally developed by SGI and widely adopted as a basis for high-quality, cross-platform graphics development. In addition to its obvious usefulness to games like Quake III, applications for modeling and animation, data analysis, and simulations can also take advantage of OpenGL's features. OpenGL 1.0 for the Mac requires a PowerPC-based system running Mac OS 8.1 or higher with at least 32 MB of RAM (although G3-based systems are recommended), and includes QuickDraw 3D 1.6 and libraries to accelerate rendering on Macs with ATI RAGE II, RAGE Pro, and RAGE 128 video systems. If you're a developer eager to start programming with OpenGL, grab the 4.7 MB OpenGL 1.0 package and check out Apple's OpenGL developer materials; otherwise, gamers and graphics aficionados shouldn't have to wait long for OpenGL-based products to begin shipping on the Mac.
