Apple QuickTake 150 -- Following on the mixed success of the QuickTake 100, Apple has introduced an improved version of the QuickTake in an effort to show that it's still serious about the digital camera market. The QuickTake 150 features 1 MB of flash EPROM that can store 16 high-resolution images (24-bit, 640 by 480) or 32 standard resolution images (24-bit, 320 by 240), a close-up lens, plus a serial cable and Apple's QuickTake software to transfer your images over to any Mac with a 68020 or better processor. The QuickTake 150 should be available now and pricing is estimated to be about $700. [GD]
Sleep (and Lock) Your Screen
When you are walking away from your computer, it's fairly common practice to start your screen saver and lock your screen. But did you know that there is a built-in keyboard shortcut in Mac OS X to sleep the screen?
Press Control-Shift-Eject and your monitor sleeps without engaging the screen saver.
