Turn Off Filename Extension Warning

In Leopard, Apple fixed an annoying aspect of working with the Finder in Tiger. Previously, if you changed a file's extension, the Finder prompted for confirmation. But since no one has ever accidentally changed a filename extension, Apple thankfully added an option to turn that warning off in the Leopard Finder's preferences. Choose Finder > Preferences, and in the Advanced screen, deselect Show Warning Before Changing an Extension.

Glenn Fleishman <glenn@popco.com> writes to tell us that Adobe has joined two other companies whose names start with A (Apple, with LaserWriter 8.0, and Aladdin, with StuffIt Expander 3.5) in releasing a product without removing code that made the betas expire. Thus, Adobe Photoshop 3.0 will self-destruct on 01-Jan-95 unless you run a patcher that Adobe promises to distribute by 10-Oct-94. We'll be sure to give a URL for that if we can find one. Adobe is recalling copies of Photoshop in the channel and will put out new boxes with a 3.0.1 sticker on them. [ACE]
