Avoid Simple Typos

If, like me, you find yourself typing 2911 in place of 2011 entirely too often, you can have Mac OS X (either Lion or Snow Leopard) fix such typos for you automatically. Just open the Language & Text pane of System Preferences, click the Text button at the top, and then add a text substitution by clicking the + button underneath the list. It won't work everywhere (for that you'll want a utility like Smile's TextExpander), but it should work in applications like Pages and TextEdit, and in Save dialog boxes.

EvangeList Returns

Send Article to a Friend

EvangeList Returns -- The folks at SemperMac, a Web-based Macintosh magazine and portal site, have resurrected Guy Kawasaki's popular EvangeList, which had been discontinued in April of 1999. The EvangeList, a mouse-thumping list if ever there was one, was known for its good-news stories about the Mac, requests for help in arguing for the Mac, Macintosh-oriented job postings, and (most controversially) its calls to "educate" misinformed mainstream press journalists who had written incorrect information about Apple or the Mac. Although Guy is no longer involved with EvangeList, concentrating his efforts instead on garage.com, he gave the SemperMac folks permission to use the EvangeList name. If you were subscribed to the original EvangeList, you'll have to resubscribe on the new EvangeList pages. [ACE]
