Fun Way to Send Attachments in Mail

If you're working in a file that you want to attach to a message in Apple Mail, you can transfer the file to Mail easily: From the title bar of the file's window, drag the little proxy icon to Mail's icon on the Dock. Your Mac will make Mail the active application and open a new outgoing message, with the file attached.

(If your icon won't drag, the file probably isn't saved.)

 
 

TidBITS Moves Up in Best of Mac Web Survey

TidBITS Moves Up in Best of Mac Web Survey -- In the Low End Mac Web site's third Best of the Mac Web survey, TidBITS moved up from 5th to 3rd in user ratings. As with the last time, we came in behind VersionTracker and As the Apple Turns, but in this installment of the survey, we managed to move past MacSurfer's Headline News and MacFixIt, which fell to 10th place (Low End Mac speculated the drop may be due to MacFixIt's new subscription model). Other notable changes include the rise of the Mac Minute news site from 11th to 6th place, and the drop of The Mac Show from 15th to 50th after the loss of Shawn King, whose new Your Mac Life radio show ranked 18th. Although the Best of the Mac Web survey is an unabashed popularity contest, the more times it occurs, the more the changes from one survey to another prove interesting. Thanks to all of you who voted in this installment of the survey! [ACE]
