Go Back and Forth Fast in Preview

If you're reading a PDF in Apple's Preview software, and you follow a bookmark or an internal link to move around within the PDF, you can quickly return to where you were by pressing the keyboard shortcut Command-[ (that's Command-Left Bracket). Or, you can choose Go > Back.

The command works iteratively, so you can go back to just the previously viewed page or if you issue the command again, to the page before that, and so on. There's also an equivalent Go > Forward (Command-]).

Apple to "Take Back" Macs for Recycling

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has announced it is expanding its technology recycling program: beginning in June 2006, Apple will offer free recycling and disposal of old computers to U.S. customers who purchase a new Mac through the Apple online or retail stores. Apple says equipment received through the program will be recycled domestically without any hazardous materials being shipped overseas; according to Apple, more than 90 percent of electronic equipment it has collected since 2001 has been recycled.

Apple also announced that its iPod nano, iPod shuffle, and current fifth-generation iPod music players are fully compliant with upcoming restrictions on hazardous substances (RoHS) to be implemented in California, and in Europe on 01-Jul-06. The RoHS standards are being promoted as a global standard for environmental preservation, and restrict the use of hazardous substances such as cadmium, lead, hexavalent chromium, bromiated flame retardants, and mercury. Apple had previously come under fire from environmentalists because of the potential environmental impact of millions of iPods as owners discard older or malfunctioning units; Apple announced an iPod recycling program in June 2005.
