Mac OS X Zip Expanding Utility

Firefox (and possibly other applications) may ask you what you want to do with .zip archives that you download from the Internet. If you want to expand them with Mac OS X (rather than StuffIt Expander), you may be unsure of which application actually does the job. You're looking for Archive Utility (in Leopard and later) or BOMArchiveHelper (in Tiger). In either case, the application is stored in Hard Drive/System/Library/Core Services/. Don't move it from there, though, or you'll confuse matters.

 
 

Claris Resolve

Send Article to a Friend

Claris Resolve has faded away entirely, with Claris announcing that it will no longer continue development work on the spreadsheet. Claris will continue to support Resolve until 31-Mar-95 and will sell Resolve through 31-Mar-94. Resolve simply didn't sell enough copies to be worth the effort, and Claris is encouraging registered Resolve users to switch to ClarisWorks 2.1's spreadsheet module, sweetening the encouragement with a mere $29 upgrade fee until 30-Sep-94 (have your Resolve registration number ready and call the 800 number below). Although people with trivial spreadsheet needs will find ClarisWorks an acceptable substitute, serious Resolve users will probably switch to Excel, especially considering that Lotus 1-2-3 on the Macintosh hasn't exactly become the de facto standard.

Claris -- 800/544-8554
