With Apple Mail under Yosemite, you can add shapes, text, and highlights to attachments right in the composing window, without having to annotate the file before you insert it into an email.

iOS 8's new way to search within websites blows the previous methods out of the water, and in today's Quick Tip, you're gonna learn all about it! This'll let you look through certain sites right from Safari's search field. Neat, right? We think so, too.
