Adding Links in Snow Leopard's Mail

Apple Mail in Snow Leopard now has a Command-key shortcut for adding a link to an email.

If you use plain-text email, this will not be helpful at all, but if you send styled email, it's a nice shortcut for adding URLs to your email messages. Simply select the word(s) you want to make into a link, press Command-K, and enter the URL to build into the link.

QuickTime 7.0.1 Fixes Security Hole

Send Article to a Friend

QuickTime 7.0.1 Fixes Security Hole -- Apple has released QuickTime 7.0.1, a 26.6 MB download via Software Update. This update replaces the Quartz Composer plug-in, which was found to be capable of sending local data to an arbitrary Web location using an encoded URL. The new component prevents this from happening. QuickTime 7.0.1 supports Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later.

QuickTime 7.0.1 also includes unspecified bug fixes and allegedly improves compatibility with Apple's Final Cut Studio. TidBITS Technical Editor Geoff Duncan discovered fixes for a couple of annoying QuickTime 7 problems on multi-channel audio interfaces: QuickTime 7.0.1 respects the user's default stereo output pair (where version 7.0 sent stereo audio only to channels 1 and 2 - bummer if your speakers are connected to outputs 3 and 4!), and version 7.0.1 plays monophonic audio correctly.
