Poll Preview: Color Me Pretty -- Apple last week expanded the color palette of its iBook line to include a graphite-themed consumer laptop (see below), re-opening the topic of Apple's often-brash color selections for its computing products. So, the poll question appearing this week on our home page is: What colors would you like to see Apple use in future Macs? We've chosen a few commonly requested themes, but feel free to contribute other ideas to TidBITS Talk! [GD]
Disable Caps Lock
If you find yourself pressing the Caps Lock key accidentally as much as I do, note that you can disable it entirely in Mac OS X. Open the Keyboard & Mouse preference pane, click the Modifier Keys button, and in the dialog that appears, select No Action from the Caps Lock pop-up menu. You could remap it to another modifier instead, but that might make using differently configured Macs more difficult.
