Quiz Preview: Eject This! It's time to take a break from polls and test your knowledge of the Macintosh again. The question on our home page this week is, "What do you hold down at startup to eject removable media?" You can choose from among eight answers, and if you submit an answer to the quiz, we'll tell you not only which answer is correct, but also what happens with all of the incorrect answers. So even if you're sure you know the answer, you might learn something: we certainly did while putting together the quiz! [ACE]
