Turn Off Filename Extension Warning

In Leopard, Apple fixed an annoying aspect of working with the Finder in Tiger. Previously, if you changed a file's extension, the Finder prompted for confirmation. But since no one has ever accidentally changed a filename extension, Apple thankfully added an option to turn that warning off in the Leopard Finder's preferences. Choose Finder > Preferences, and in the Advanced screen, deselect Show Warning Before Changing an Extension.

Apple Posts $55 Million Quarterly Profit

Send Article to a Friend

Apple Posts $55 Million Quarterly Profit -- Apple significantly surpassed analysts' expectations last week by posting a $55 million profit on revenues of $1.4 billion for its second fiscal quarter of 1998. This marks Apple's second consecutive profitable quarter, having earned $45 million in the first quarter of this fiscal year. In contrast, Apple lost $708 million dollars in this quarter last year, due in part to the acquisition of NeXT Software. According to Apple, just over half of the 650,000 Macs sold were G3 systems, and international sales accounted for 50 percent of total revenues in the quarter. [GD]
