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.

Disney/Pixar Merger?

Send Article to a Friend

Disney/Pixar Merger? I don't have any inside information on the possible Disney/Pixar merger currently circulating in the rumor mill, but since the Washington Post asked me to comment, I did. It's a good article, and since Mike Musgrove gave my quote the last word, I had to pass it on:

"For Jobs, however, a prominent role at Disney could satisfy some of his ambitions, analysts said. Adam C. Engst, publisher of influential Mac news site TidBITS, said he could understand how access to Disney, one of the top brands on the globe, would appeal to Jobs.
"'Jobs is out to change the world - it's not about money for him,' Engst said. 'The computer is not necessarily the means to change the world anymore... popular culture is how you change the world.'"
