Author Biography

Agen Schmitz is a freelance writer and editor with a lot of Amazon time under his belt. After leaving Amazon in 2003 (as senior editor for the Camera & Photo store), Agen has written for the Amazon Electronics Store blog (mainly covering Apple news) and created product content for a variety of Amazon categories — from PCs to comforter sets to luxury watches. He lives in Seattle with his wife and son (who likes to think his father’s iPad is his own). (January 2012)

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.
