Copy Disk Image as Folder

When you open a .dmg file, a disk image is mounted. You are then generally supposed to copy the contents of that disk image to your hard drive (to your Desktop, your Applications folder, or wherever). But what if you want to copy the whole disk image, including all its contents, as a folder? Hold the Option key, and drag the "proxy icon" in the title bar of the disk image window to the destination in the Finder.

180c Shortage

Send Article to a Friend

180c Shortage -- Pythaeus tells us that Apple has run out of the popular PowerBook 180c 4/160 and the corresponding bundle with Apple Express Modem. Although these configurations are in Apple's current "instant rebate" promotion, running through 31-Jan-94, the "while supplies last" rule in that promotion may leave hopeful buyers without the model they want. Apple's announcement that buyers considering the 180c should instead purchase the 4/80 model, or a Duo 270c, suggests that Apple plans to discontinue the 180c in the near future.
