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.

Virtual PC News -- This week, Connectix plans to ship Virtual PC, its Pentium emulation software (see TidBITS-374). Early reports have been positive, and it seems that - at least for those who have the necessary hardware - Virtual PC has become a real alternative, not only for running the included Windows 95, but also any other Pentium-compatible operating system.

According to Connectix, the lower-end version, called Virtual PC Windows 3.11/MS-DOS Version, works on any PowerPC-based Mac running at 100 MHz or faster, with a recommended 24 MB RAM and 200 MB disk space. Those interested in Virtual PC Windows 95 Version need a Power PC-based Mac with at least a 180 MHz Power PC 603e chip, or any 604 or 604e, plus a recommended 32 MB RAM and 300 MB disk space. Both versions require Mac OS 7.5.5 or later. Connectix also notes that a big Level 2 cache helps performance. Retail pricing is expected to come in around $159, and there is a $25 rebate for SoftWindows users. Connectix -- 800/950-5880 -- 415/571-5100 -- 415/571-5195 (fax) -- <info@connectix.com> [TJE]
