Poll Results: On Releases and Announcements -- Last week's poll asked how you'd prefer TidBITS cover news of product announcements and releases. Historically, we tend to cover products only when they're released and available, rather than merely when they're announced, and 51 percent of the poll's respondents agreed with that approach. Roughly a third of the respondents would prefer TidBITS covered products both when they're announced and when they're released, while 16 percent voted we do neither (instead sticking to other types of articles), and 2 percent voted we cover only product announcements. We aren't sure if (or how) we'll change TidBITS's coverage of product announcements in the future, but we have been thinking about brief mentions of selected product announcements in addition to the product releases we would normally cover. These poll results, along with the discussion in TidBITS Talk, have helped clarify what readers might find useful - thanks! [GD]
File Email with a Key in Apple Mail
In Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or later, you can use the simple and fun MsgFiler Mail plug-in to file Mail messages using keyboard shortcuts.
New in Apple Mail 4 (the 10.6 Snow Leopard version), to assign a keyboard shortcut to any mailbox on the Move To or Copy To submenu, you can also open the Keyboard pane of System Preferences, click Keyboard Shortcuts, and select Application Shortcuts in the list on the left. Click the + button, choose Mail from the Application pop-up menu, type the name of the mailbox in the Menu Title field, click in the Keyboard Shortcut field, and press the keystroke combination you want to use. Then click Add.
