PC in a Mac -- No, it's not a late April Fools joke, though it does point the way to another method for keeping a Mac on your desk and running PC software when necessary. Connectix, makers of RAM Doubler, has announced Virtual PC, Macintosh software that emulates a Pentium-based PC. Because Virtual PC aims to emulate a processor, not an operating system, it reportedly will enable Mac users to run off-the-shelf versions of DOS, Windows 3.1, 95, and NT, plus NeXT OpenStep and OS/2, with support for key PC options including SoundBlaster Pro, Ethernet, printing, and modems. Virtual PC should ship in June and run on any Power Mac with System 7.5. Although there are emulation alternatives like Insignia's SoftWindows or plugging in a hardware card, I expect that Virtual PC will inject new blood into the emulation market.

View Full Threads in Apple Mail
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.
