Every other month, Wil Wilcox (my Eclipse colleague from Los Angeles) joins me in publishing a free newsletter that we call e-Tips.  Each e-Tip include Eclipse shortcuts as well as advice on new products and technology. 

Past e-Tips are available as PDF files, which can be read with the free Adobe Reader program that is probably already installed on your computer.
