File Email with a Key in Apple Mail

In Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or later, you can use the simple and fun MsgFiler Mail plug-in to file Mail messages using keyboard shortcuts.

New in Apple Mail 4 (the 10.6 Snow Leopard version), to assign a keyboard shortcut to any mailbox on the Move To or Copy To submenu, you can also open the Keyboard pane of System Preferences, click Keyboard Shortcuts, and select Application Shortcuts in the list on the left. Click the + button, choose Mail from the Application pop-up menu, type the name of the mailbox in the Menu Title field, click in the Keyboard Shortcut field, and press the keystroke combination you want to use. Then click Add.

Hands on with Kindle

Send Article to a Friend

The day after writing about Kindle for TidBITS (see "Comparing Amazon's Kindle to the iPhone and Sony Reader", 2007-11-19), I received a unit - bought and paid for by yours truly, by the way, as Amazon.com apparently didn't seed many units to the press, and didn't respond to my request for a review model for The Seattle Times.

I wrote up my observations on The Seattle Times's blog, and will have a full review in the paper a week from Saturday. I didn't list every kudo or complaint in the blog - nor will I have room in the upcoming review - but as a type designer and graphic designer, I'll point out that the Kindle supports one font, one layout, and multiple sizes. The font is fine. Quite legible. The ability to resize, well implemented and useful for varying conditions.

The layout? Not so great. Forced justification with apparently no hyphenation dictionary or hinting in the format. That's a huge failure. On a private list, I noted that, "Justification without hyphenation is like taxation without representation." That is, the poor letters and word groupings have no input into how they're displayed, which makes for a poor republic.

Adam Engst thought this would make a good T-shirt. And so I made one at Cafe Press.
