  • "There's a Scent of Apple in the Air at CES: Once again, Apple is sitting out the Consumer Electronics Show, and once again, its presence is felt everywhere in the Las Vegas Convention Center. Rumors are still flying regarding the expected emergence of a new form of Apple TV; meanwhile, Google is giving its own television dreams another go. Tablets of all shapes and sizes are also flooding the CES show floor, ready to knock the iPad off its perch."  MacNewsWorld 8:07 AM

  • "My IMAP backup strategy (necessary because my work place does not provide infinite online storage) is to create a folder 'on my Mac' for archiving emails. I name it appropriately, usually with a mailbox name and date range. Note, you can also make sub-folders for more organization. Then I create a smart folder to separately capture mail from my In and Sent mailboxes that are older than a certain date (which will depend on your email volume and the storage generosity, or lack thereof, of your provider).: Every once in a while (generally when prompted that I am reaching my storage limit) I will select all of the older messages in the smart folder and select the 'move' option, rather than copy, from the menu or via a right-click and put them all in the archival folder on my Mac. All attachments come along for the ride and the folder is fully searchable form within Mail or via Spotlight. The disadvantage is that since the messages are moved off the server, I can't search them from another computer. Of course, the archived messages are also backed up by TimeMachine." MacInTouch 3:36 PM
