Copy Before Submitting Web Forms

Filling in Web forms (like the one used to submit this tip) can be a bit of a gamble - you put in your pearls of wisdom, perhaps only to lose them all if the Web page flakes out or the browser crashes. Instead of losing all your text, "save" it by pressing Command-A to select all and then Command-C to copy the selected text to the clipboard. Do this periodically as you type and before you click Submit, and you may "save" yourself from a lot of frustration. It takes just a second to do, and the first time you need to rely on it to paste back in lost text, you'll feel smart.

iPhoto 7.1.3 Fixes Books and Cards

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has released iPhoto 7.1.3 with a one-line description, "This update addresses issues with wire-bound books and cards." The update is available via Software Update or as a standalone 16.9 MB download.

Needless to say, I recommend you download this essential update right away, even if you don't plan to print wire-bound books or cards, and even if you're not planning on using iPhoto in the near future. If these "issues" are actually psychological problems, who knows what sort of a rampage iPhoto could embark upon, although I would personally worry about the permissions of your photo thumbnails; iPhoto has long been overly possessive about those files.
