Aladdin Shrink-wraps ShrinkWrap 3.0 -- ShrinkWrap, the popular disk image utility from shareware author Chad Magendanz (see TidBITS-339) was recently purchased by Aladdin Systems, and Aladdin has released version 3.0 as a $29.95 commercial product (upgrades cost $15). The new version operates in the background, adds native support for Apple's DiskCopy 6.1, and improves its compression capabilities through the use of Aladdin's StuffIt technology. Others improvements include options for RSA 40-bit encryption and binhexing, as well as the ability to perform batch operations on folders or volumes containing disk images. ShrinkWrap works on any Macintosh running System 7 or later (including Mac OS 8), though some features don't work on the Plus. A 15-day trial version is available as a 600K download.

Sleep (and Lock) Your Screen
When you are walking away from your computer, it's fairly common practice to start your screen saver and lock your screen. But did you know that there is a built-in keyboard shortcut in Mac OS X to sleep the screen?
Press Control-Shift-Eject and your monitor sleeps without engaging the screen saver.
