Enabling Auto Spelling Correction in Snow Leopard

In Snow Leopard, the automatic spelling correction in applications is not usually activated by default. To turn it on, make sure the cursor's insertion point is somewhere where text can be entered, and either choose Edit > Spelling and Grammar > Correct Spelling Automatically or, if the Edit menu's submenu doesn't have what you need, Control-click where you're typing and choose Spelling and Grammar > Correct Spelling Automatically from the contextual menu that appears. The latter approach is particularly likely to be necessary in Safari and other WebKit-based applications, like Mailplane.

Bad Power Mac G4 Hard Drives

Send Article to a Friend

Bad Power Mac G4 Hard Drives -- Apple has revealed that some Power Mac G4s (Digital Audio - those released in January of 2001) contain defective 40 GB and 60 GB hard drives that can damage files, cause data loss, and potentially prevent the computer from starting up. Only a limited number of machines sold in the U.S. and Canada are affected, so if you have a Power Mac G4 (Digital Audio) with a 40 GB or 60 GB hard drive, read the Tech Info Library's instructions on how to determine whether your Mac has a bad drive. If so, Apple will replace the drive under warranty. [ACE]
