Poll Preview: QuickTime & Sherlock Interfaces -- Apple has made much of its new "stylish" interfaces for QuickTime 4.0's QuickTime Player and Sherlock 2. However, these interfaces violate Apple's own user interface conventions (try expanding the QuickTime Player window and note the lack of a collapse button in both applications) and have proved controversial in the Macintosh community. QuickTime Player could have been an anomaly, but Sherlock 2's similar interface shows that Apple is continuing the design trend. And where Apple leads, others are likely to follow. The question, then, is: do you think Apple and other developers should make their user interfaces more like QuickTime Player and Sherlock 2? Express your opinion at our home page! [ACE]
Copy Before Submitting Web Forms
Filling in Web forms (like the one used to submit this tip) can be a bit of a gamble - you put in your pearls of wisdom, perhaps only to lose them all if the Web page flakes out or the browser crashes. Instead of losing all your text, "save" it by pressing Command-A to select all and then Command-C to copy the selected text to the clipboard. Do this periodically as you type and before you click Submit, and you may "save" yourself from a lot of frustration. It takes just a second to do, and the first time you need to rely on it to paste back in lost text, you'll feel smart.
