Apple Drops PowerTalk Until Copland -- According to MacWEEK, Apple has confirmed it will be moving away from PowerTalk as its core communications solution until the next major revision of the Mac OS is available, citing very low adoption by users and developers. PowerTalk 1.1 will ship this quarter, but won't re-appear until a wholly-rewritten version based on OpenDoc and Internet technologies (like Glenn Anderson's Apple Internet Mail Server) ships with Copland.

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.
