Copy Disk Image as Folder

When you open a .dmg file, a disk image is mounted. You are then generally supposed to copy the contents of that disk image to your hard drive (to your Desktop, your Applications folder, or wherever). But what if you want to copy the whole disk image, including all its contents, as a folder? Hold the Option key, and drag the "proxy icon" in the title bar of the disk image window to the destination in the Finder.

We were busy this week, and didn't read much that was worth passing on, other than Macworld's coverage of AT&T's price drop for the unlimited iPhone voice and data plan. That said, if you're interested in ebook technology and publishing, be sure to listen to Tonya's MacNotables podcast.


AT&T Reduces iPhone's Unlimited Plan Price -- Macworld reports that AT&T has reduced the price of the iPhone's unlimited voice and data plan, down from $100 for voice and $30 for data (for a total of $130) to $100 for both voice and data combined. The unlimited Family Talk plans also dropped in price (now $180 for two phones), but text messaging plan pricing remains unchanged.
