Adding Links in Snow Leopard's Mail
Apple Mail in Snow Leopard now has a Command-key shortcut for adding a link to an email.
If you use plain-text email, this will not be helpful at all, but if you send styled email, it's a nice shortcut for adding URLs to your email messages. Simply select the word(s) you want to make into a link, press Command-K, and enter the URL to build into the link.
Advertise Your Product in DealBITS
If you want to expose tens of thousands of TidBITS-reading Macintosh users to your products while generating sales at the same time, look no further than a DealBITS drawing. Where most advertising aims at brand recognition (a worthy goal in its own right), the beauty of DealBITS is that you'll likely sell enough of your product to more than offset the cost of participation.
Here's how DealBITS works. You provide at least two copies of a prize of your choosing, to be awarded to randomly chosen winners. We'll pick the winners from the eligible entries at the end of the week after the drawing is announced and pass on their names and email addresses so you can send them their prizes. You must also offer a time-limited deal via a coupon code or special URL for drawing entrants. When we notify entrants of the winner(s), we'll also pass on the discount code/URL they can use to order. DealBITS costs $250.
To sign up for DealBITS, first contact us to make sure we can run your drawing (likely yes, unless it's too far off-topic for our readership) and to see if there are any scheduling constraints. When we give the OK, come back here and fill in the form below, which sends us the information in a regularized format. We'll return an email invoice, payable via check or PayPal once the drawing has started.
We need the following information from you:
