This week, Allegiant Technologies confirmed months of rumor by publicly announcing it is seeking a buyer for its well-regarded multimedia authoring program SuperCard. (See "Surprised by SuperCard" in TidBITS-369.) Allegiant recently updated SuperCard to version 3.0.3 for compatibility with Mac OS 8, and currently plans to sell and support SuperCard until a buyer is found (in fact, they've extended $69.95 holiday pricing for SuperCard 3.0 through February). Allegiant is also seeking a new home for its Flamethrower CGI engine and the scriptable Internet protocol engine Marionet, and recently spun SoundMaker back to its original publisher, MicroMat. Although Allegiant had been developing a Windows version of SuperCard, the product has faced strong competition from the popular (and cross-platform) Macromedia Director, and Allegiant's recently-introduced Internet products have had to compete with well-established (and often free) products such as UserLand Frontier.
How to Make an iPhone Screenshot
Want to take a screenshot of something on your iPhone or iPod touch? Press the Home button and Power button briefly at the same time, and an image of your screen will be saved to the Photos app (and will sync with iPhoto when you next connect). Don't hold the buttons too long or your device will either power down or reboot.
