It’s time for a little mac-related rant, for one of the few things that disturb me when using my computer at work. I immediately fell in love with Mac Mail: Lightweight and nimble, but at the same time offering a much more powerful experience than Outlook/Entourage, very much thanks to the speed and ease of… Continue reading Mac Mail and fonts
