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.

DealBITS Drawing: GarageSale 1.9

Send Article to a Friend

A year ago, we did a DealBITS drawing for the program GarageSale, from iwascoding.com. GarageSale is a Mac OS X application that acts as a front-end for posting auctions on eBay. It integrates with iPhoto and the iSight camera, provides decent text-editing tools, and can track your auctions after posting. It was one of our most popular drawings; apparently lots of TidBITS readers post auctions via eBay and dislike eBay's Web-based interface. If you fall into that group, but haven't yet tried GarageSale, you have another chance to win a copy of the latest version, which now features a slew of nicely designed templates that you can use and customize for free (apparently eBay charges if you want to use their designs) and a streamlined interface. GarageSale also now takes advantage of Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger, via a Dashboard widget for tracking active auctions, with a new Core Image-savvy Image Editor to improve pictures, by searching auction templates with Spotlight, and by using Automator to work with auctions and images.

In this week's DealBITS drawing, you can enter to win one of three copies of GarageSale (the 5-machine Family Pack license), each worth $44.99. Entrants who aren't among our lucky winners will receive a discount on GarageSale (both the single-user and Family Pack license), so if you'd like a program to ease the process of posting an auction on eBay, be sure to enter at the DealBITS page linked below. All information gathered is covered by our comprehensive privacy policy. Be careful with your spam filters, since you must be able to receive email from my address to learn if you've won. Remember too, that if someone you refer to this drawing wins, you'll receive the same prize to reward you for spreading the word.
