Set Per-Folder Views in the Finder

Tired of navigating to a particular folder and having to switch to List View every time? With Finder in Leopard, you can set viewing preference for each individual folder. Just navigate to it, and set the view the way you want (Column, List, Icon, or Cover Flow). Then choose View > Show View Options (Command-J) and in the window that appears, select the Always Open In... checkbox.

 
 

SE Monitor & Accelerator

Send Article to a Friend

Mobius Technologies has another option for SE owners who are running low on screen real estate and speed at the same time. The 15" full-page monitor is only 1-bit monochrome, but has a 78-Hz refresh rate and includes a 16 MHz 68000 accelerator card to double the speed of the SE. The best news is the price, only $695.

The new Mobius monitor competes directly with the Radius Full Page Display and the Sigma Designs SilverView for the SE, neither of which come with acceleration.

The trick when buying a monitor is to use it for a while first (or be able to return it within a month or some such deal) because large monitor quality is very subjective. Also, be aware that large monitors require more processing from the CPU, and will thus slow down the Mac. So even if Mobius's accelerator board doubles the Mac's speed, updating the larger screen will cut into that speed increase somewhat.
