Radius System 100 "Debuts" -- Last week, Radius announced limited strategic channel shipments of its System 100, a high-end Macintosh clone intended primarily for media-intensive electronic publishing. Although initial units are built on an 80 MHz PowerPC 601 processor, final units will include a 110 MHz 601, 72 MB of RAM, CD-ROM, a 2 GB hard disk, accelerated 24-bit video out to 1600 x 1200 pixels, four on-board DSPs for Photoshop acceleration and (of course) Photoshop pre-installed. Suggested retail price: $12,495. Hmm... I'll take two. [GD]
Spacebar Magnifies Photos in iPhoto '08
In iPhoto '08, you can choose whether double-clicking on a photo will edit it or magnify it. I prefer my double-clicks to edit photos, but every now and then it's nice to magnify a photo. To do that, even when double-click is set to edit, just select the photo and press the Spacebar.
