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.

Why iPad Sales Are Slowing

Send Article to a Friend

The iPad was Apple’s fastest growing product for several years, but sales have slowed, and analyst Ben Bajarin offers a few possible reasons why. He focuses on the point that, while they can do many things well, there’s little tablets can do that a computer or smartphone can’t do as well or better. The iPad debuted in 2010, which is often cited as the beginning of the end of PC sales, but Bajarin notes that was also about the time smartphones went mainstream, which might instead explain the decline in PC sales.favicon follow link

Well, one reason I haven't replaced my iPad 3 is due to iOS 7. If they'd dump the sucky interface and go back to the beautiful earlier one, I'd by a new iPad in a heartbeat, most likely a Mini with Retina. I respect Jony Ives as a HARDWARE designer, but for software he is in way over his head. It is sad to see such arrogance.
