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.

Tiger Ebook Sales Break 5,000 Mark -- We're pleased to note that sales of our four Take Control ebooks about Tiger reached the 5,000 mark midday on Monday, less than 3 days after Tiger's release. Thanks to everyone who purchased for your support, and a special thanks to our authors for working so hard to help us release all four ebooks simultaneously with Tiger. Next milestone: 10,000 sales!

Take Control of Your Inner Control Freak -- No, it's not really one of our upcoming titles, but the clever folks at Joy of Tech used it in a comic poking fun at Apple and Steve Jobs over the recent fuss surrounding Apple's removing Wiley books from Apple Stores in retaliation for what Jobs presumably believes is an unflattering biography.
