The PowerPort/Gold for 100-series PowerBook models dropped in price last week, according to Global Village Communication. Apple won't offer any modem-bundled PowerBook 150s, so Global Village hopes to capture the lion's share of modem sales for the new PowerBooks. The suggested retail price dropped from $349 to $299; ten-packs of the 14,400 bps data/fax modem (for real modem fiends) dropped from $3,199 to $2,479. [MHA]
Removing Photos from iPhoto
Despite iPhoto's long history, many people continue to be confused about exactly what happens when you delete a photo. There are three possibilities.
If you delete a photo from an album, book, card, calendar, or saved slideshow, the photo is merely removed from that item and remains generally available in your iPhoto library.
If, however, you delete a photo while in Events or Photos view, that act moves the photo to iPhoto's Trash. It's still available, but...
If you then empty iPhoto's Trash, all photos in it will be deleted from the iPhoto library and from your hard disk.
