APS Price Lists -- Thanks to the efforts of Frank Knapp at APS, we added a new feature to the APS price lists available from firstname.lastname@example.org. The price list is available for request as part of APS's TidBITS sponsorship, and in the past we marked new prices so you could easily scan the list and see them. Now we also include the price drop in dollars. In addition, we changed the way we indicate a new price list. In the past, we added a simple "<-- New" to APS's contact information at the top of the issue. To give a rough idea of how many prices have changed, the "New" now roughly indicates the number or importance of the changes. A few changes get "new," a few more get "New," more yet get "New!", and major changes get "NEW!" It's fuzzy, but it should help. Finally, just so you know, APS tracks orders via the 800 number listed in the online price list. So, if you call using a different 800 number because you have it handy, make sure to mention TidBITS as the source of the prices, or else Macworld or someone else undeserving will get credit.
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.
