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.

Fantastical 1.0

Send Article to a Friend

Flexibits has released Fantastical 1.0, a new calendar application for Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. Dubbed “the calendar you’ll actually enjoy using,” Fantastical wraps a gorgeous user interface around advanced features like natural language recognition, compatibility with online calendar providers (including MobileMe, Google Calendar, and Yahoo Calendar), automatic alarms, and much more. Fantastical is unusual in that it doesn’t attempt to replace your existing calendar application, but instead extends it; Fantastical is compatible with iCal, Entourage, and Outlook, and in our testing seems to work fine with BusyCal too. A free trial is available. ($20 new from Flexibits or from the Mac App Store, 7.7 MB)

I downloaded the free demo, used it for several weeks, creating among other calendar items a reminder about the expiration of the free demo. When it popped up in iCal, I had seen and experienced enough of the quality of this v.1.0 offering to open up the App Store and invest in FantastiCal at the introductory price. Shiny!
