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.

FaceTime Won't Consume Voice Minutes for Video

Send Article to a Friend

Apple tells Business Insider that the iPhone 4 video chat feature FaceTime uses voice minutes only to set up the initial connection. Once video chat begins, the voice connection is no longer used. While this makes sense - just as with iChat video, a peer-to-peer data connection is built for the connection - Apple didn't explain this so clearly at the iPhone 4 announcement or thereafter.favicon follow link

 

Comments about FaceTime Won't Consume Voice Minutes for Video

I'm also curious if iAds will count against my 2GB from AT&T...
You wrote "Apple tells Business Insider that the iPhone 4 video chat feature FaceTime uses voice minutes only to set up the initial connection:"

Where did you read that. I have read others who seem to think the same thing. The Business Insider article that you link to mentions only "...FaceTime calls CAN BE initiated from within voice calls..."

Even Apples web site states "Just find her entry in your Contacts and tap the FaceTime button. Or maybe you’re already on a voice call with her and you want to switch to video."

I believe that with FaceTime. Apple just entered the video chat biz.

Pure speculation on my part - those iPhones were communicating over WI-FI using an unkown and unmentioned server where each iPhone has to be in touch with.

Betcha that feature is coming to the next iPod Touch as well as future iPads (perhaps even Macs). I figure that the iPhones' owner contact card is used to "log-in" to the server and if (when) it finds a matched entry among said owners contacts with other "logged-in" iOS users its then possible to make a v-call.

Thats why its not using 3GPP video calling which cuts off a potential revenue source for the Telcos - we are already paying for a data plan.
