Quicker Eject!

If you want to eject a DVD or a CD, you have to hold down the Eject key for a few seconds, otherwise, it won't eject. You can bypass the time delay however. You just have to press "Option - Eject" and it will eject instantly, without having to wait a few seconds.

Thank you! I dunno why they thought we'd like to hold it down for a few seconds.

@ Max Weaver: holdin down for a few seconds the eject button prevents you to eject the disc for mistake. For example on a Macbook if you've to push F12 and you wrong and push eject button insted of it, the disc don't come out ;)

Wonderful! I wonder if this will make a faster iTunes override? Sometimes when a disc is scratched, iTunes tries and tries to pad it, but is not always successful. When you try to eject the disc, it takes eons for iTunes to decide it's done trying. I will try it next time it happens. THANX!
