Option-Click in Scroll Bars for Jump Scrolling

In Mac OS X in general, and thus in most native Mac OS X applications, hold down the Option key and click anywhere in a window's scroll bar to jump to that spot (rather than scrolling one screen). If you like this behavior, you can make it the default in the Appearance preference pane. For "Click in the scroll bar to:" select "Jump to here."

Apple Posts $183 Million Profit

Apple Posts $183 Million Profit -- Apple Computer posted a $183 million profit for its first fiscal quarter of 2000. Apple's unit shipments were up 46 percent compared to the same quarter a year ago: Apple sold nearly 1.4 million systems during the quarter (including 700,000 iMacs and 235,000 iBooks) and 51 percent of those sales were to international customers. Apple has $3.6 billion in cash and short term investments, and ended the quarter with less than one day of inventory on hand. Although these numbers are quite healthy, they would have been $178 million without some mammoth one-time events. Apple sold five million shares of ARM Holdings for a total gain of $101 million, took a net restructuring charge of $6 million, and allotted $90 million dollars in "executive compensation" for turnaround-leader Steve Jobs, who was given his own Gulfstream V jet and options to buy 10 million shares of Apple stock. That's not bad pay for a part-time job. [GD]
