Shorten URLs in TextExpander

If your Twitter client doesn't automatically shorten URLs for you, you can use TextExpander to shrink those long links to tweetable lengths. First, add the Internet Productivity group by choosing File > Add Predefined Group > Internet Productivity Snippets. Then, to shorten a URL using a service like TinyURL, copy the destination URL to the clipboard, and type the abbreviation /tinyurl to insert the shortened URL at the insertion point.

Microsoft Office X 10.1.3 Released -- Microsoft today released an updater for Microsoft Office X to address several issues with the Italian Spelling Tool and the French Proofing Tools. Installing 10.1.3 requires that you already have the 10.1.2 update (released in November) installed.

The update patches the English, French, German, Spanish, and Swedish versions of Office X, and the stand-alone Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Entourage applications for Mac OS X. Since the update appears to fix only issues with foreign-language features within Microsoft Office, it's not clear that most users will need this upgrade. [MHA]
