In our coverage of Mac OS 8's contextual menu capabilities in Of Mice and Menus (TidBITS 398), we neglected to mention Mark Aiken's PowerMenu. The $15 shareware utility adds contextual menu plug-ins to Mac OS 8, and provides its particular contextual menu commands, through an extension, to machines running System 7.1 or later and 68040-based Macs running Mac OS 8. PowerMenu speeds launching applications and some administrative Finder tasks. The download is 333K.
Beware Country-Specific iTunes Stores
If you buy an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, and you happen to be a user of the iTunes Store in more than one country, take note which country's store you're viewing in iTunes when you plug in the device for the first time. This will be the country the device will register with, and you will be forever barred from purchasing or even updating free apps from anywhere else. The only way out is to delete everything on the device and do a full restore.
