The Recent Items submenu in the Apple menu is handy, but what if you want to work with a file in there in the Finder, rather than open it?

Last Call for Holiday 2006 Gift Ideas

Send Article to a Friend

We're wrapping up the suggestions for holiday gift ideas, so if you've been holding off so far, drop us a note with your ideas by 06-Dec-06. As always, we're collecting ideas in TidBITS Talk, so send your picks to <tidbits-talk@tidbits.com> or submit them in the TidBITS Talk Web forum, and please use plain text format rather than HTML. We've already started threads for specific categories, and in particular, we're a bit thin for general software and game ideas. Please suggest only one product or idea per message, give the reason why you're recommending it, make sure to include a URL or other necessary contact information, and please recommend only others' products. Thanks!
