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.

Apple Kills Its Cards App

Apple has killed its Cards app for iPhone and iPad, introduced in 2011 to enable you to create and mail custom greeting cards for a fee. Cards has been removed from the App Store, and if you have it installed, the app will notify you that its associated service is no longer available. If you still want to mail cards, check out Bill Atkinson’s free PhotoCard app, which lets you email cards for free, or send them via postal mail for as little as $1.50.favicon follow link
