The Recent Items submenu in the Apple menu is handy, but what if you want to work with a file in there in the Finder, rather than open it? Just press Command when that menu is showing, and all the Applications and Documents change to "Show ... in Finder." This feature is new as of Mac OS X 10.6.3 Snow Leopard.

Macintosh Columnist Don Crabb Dies

Macintosh Columnist Don Crabb Dies -- Prolific Macintosh columnist Don Crabb has died at age 44 after having been hospitalized since December with a disease of the pancreas. Movie critic Roger Ebert chose the best words when he described Don as "a big man with boundless energy" in a Chicago Sun-Times obituary. Don's energy enabled him to accomplish a great deal - at the University of Chicago, he served as associate director of graduate and undergraduate computer science, director of instructional laboratories, and a senior lecturer. In his non-academic life, Don wrote for numerous Macintosh publications and Web sites, hosted a Chicago radio show, and appeared regularly on other radio and television shows. We'll all miss him.
