Compare More Easily in Apple Mail

In Apple Mail, if you need to work back and forth between two different views of Mail's mailbox contents, you can do so quite easily. For example, you might want to look at a mailbox holding all filtered-in sales orders from the past week while also looking at a smart mailbox showing unanswered customer questions.

To avoid constantly clicking between mailbox views and losing your context each time, choose File > New Viewer window to get a second window and then arrange each window as desired.

RAM, Wonderful RAM -- Perhaps the most commonly suggested item this year was more RAM, which is still quite affordable. Kate Norem said it best when she wrote, "You know, one can never have too much RAM."

Scott <> agrees, or at least he thinks he does:

As I get older I find that my memory isn't what it used to be. In fact, I frequently forget current events. As I get older I find that my memory isn't what it used to be. What would help me considerably is new memory. Please tell Santa that I barely remember to rebuild my desktop, optimize my HD, and check it twice on a monthly basis. A 16 MB or 32 MB, 60ns, 72-pin SIMM for my LC475 would be a very nice stocking stuffer. Now if I can only remember how to install it...

TidBITS sponsor Small Dog Electronics has come up with special RAM pricing to go with this issue. They have 8 MB, 16, MB, and 32 MB 72-pin SIMMs for $40, $70, and $145, respectively. DIMMs in the same sizes are $45, $75, and $159. Check the TidBITS Memory Deal text on the Small Dog home page.


Scott is obviously faking amnesia if he can remember that his LC475 needs a 60ns, 72-pin SIMM. Most of us mere mortals rely on something like the free Guru 2.1 from Newer Technologies. Guru stands for GUide to RAM Upgrades and lists all sorts of tweaky little details about RAM upgrades for all Mac models. [ACE]
