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.

Quiz Results: Lord of Your Own Domain?

Send Article to a Friend

Quiz Results: Lord of Your Own Domain? Last week's quiz followed up on ICANN's endorsement of seven new Internet top-level domains (TLDs) by asking which of the following domains - .org, .cc, .mil, .web, .um, .is, or .biz - was not an existing domain or one of the seven new TLDs. Just over a third of the quiz respondents knew the correct answer - .web - but even more respondents thought the answer was .um, which is the established (though little used) top-level domain for the U.S. Minor Outlying Islands, including Wake and Midway in the mid-Pacific. We may yet see a .web domain - it was proposed to ICANN by multiple applicants, and could be approved in the future - but it doesn't exist yet. Only eight percent of the quiz's respondent's thought .biz didn't exist (even though it's brand new) while fourteen percent thought .cc - the domain for the Cocos (Keeling) Islands, in the Indian Ocean south of Sumatra - didn't exist, despite its wide (some would say opportunistic) promotion by its registrar as an alternative to the .com domain.
