Apple Announces Strong Second Quarter -- Apple last week announced a strong second quarter, with revenues of $2.65 billion (a 28 percent increase over the same period a year ago) with a net income of $73 million. These figures were aided by the success of the Power Macintosh and strong growth in sales outside the United States, despite fluctuations in the value of the dollar and some money Apple lost in foreign currency hedging. This is also the third consecutive quarter in which Apple shipped more than one million units. [GD]
Disable Caps Lock
If you find yourself pressing the Caps Lock key accidentally as much as I do, note that you can disable it entirely in Mac OS X. Open the Keyboard & Mouse preference pane, click the Modifier Keys button, and in the dialog that appears, select No Action from the Caps Lock pop-up menu. You could remap it to another modifier instead, but that might make using differently configured Macs more difficult.
