Poll Results: Buy and Buy -- Last week's poll asked where readers prefer to purchase Macintosh-related hardware, and (a sign of the times) online retailers were the clear favorite, cited by more than 60 percent of the poll's respondents. Also faring well were the more traditional sources of mail order catalogs (41 percent) and local Apple dealers (32 percent), while nearly 20 percent of respondents said they prefer to purchase directly from manufacturers, and 15 percent liked office and computer superstores. In retrospect, we should have called out campus dealers and other education-only channels separately, but it doesn't seem to have confused many respondents, with the "Other" category getting only three percent of the votes.

Many users are aware of Apple Mail's message threading feature, which highlights related email messages within the Inbox. However, many people don't know how to view both sent and received messages within a thread at once. To do so, first enable Message Threading under Mail's Viewing Preferences. Then, Command-click both the mailbox containing your threaded messages, and your Sent box. Now you can view both sent and received messages within the thread simultaneously.
