Copy Before Submitting Web Forms

Filling in Web forms (like the one used to submit this tip) can be a bit of a gamble - you put in your pearls of wisdom, perhaps only to lose them all if the Web page flakes out or the browser crashes. Instead of losing all your text, "save" it by pressing Command-A to select all and then Command-C to copy the selected text to the clipboard. Do this periodically as you type and before you click Submit, and you may "save" yourself from a lot of frustration. It takes just a second to do, and the first time you need to rely on it to paste back in lost text, you'll feel smart.

PowerBook G4 Combo Upgrades Start 14-Jan-02 -- Consistent with our coverage of the PowerBook G4 Titanium's new Combo drive, Apple has announced the PowerBook G4 Combo Upgrade Program. Under this program, owners of PowerBook G4 Titaniums with either 550 MHz or 667 MHz processors (check Apple System Profiler if you're not sure) can swap their existing DVD-ROM or CD-RW drives for a DVD-ROM/CD-RW Combo drive for $300. The program, full details of which will become available on 14-Jan-02 on Apple's Web site, will involve sending your PowerBook in to Apple or taking it to an Apple Store. The program lasts only until 30-Mar-02, so get your order in quickly if you want to upgrade. [ACE]
