Thoughtful, detailed coverage of the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, plus the best-selling Take Control ebooks.


Our transition from LISTSERV to ListSTAR continues this week, so please bear with us as we iron out the wrinkles. The bug that caused many of you to receive two copies of last week's issue was squashed promptly by Quarterdeck, and we're now running the fixed version of ListSTAR. I've also set up an auto-reply address from which you can request the latest version of TidBITS should your copy be munched en route for some reason. To retrieve the latest issue of TidBITS, send email to <> (the subject and body of the message will be ignored). [ACE]
