AOL & Netscape? America Online and Netscape Communications have confirmed that they're considering a deal where America Online would acquire Netscape for $4 billion in AOL stock, and Sun Microsystems would either acquire or license Netscape's high-end business and enterprise server products. If the deal goes through, AOL would take over Netscape's Web browser software (which represents about half the browser market) and Netscape's heavily used NetCenter Web site. Microsoft is using rumors of the deal to press its side in the Microsoft antitrust trial, saying that it shows that Microsoft does face the possibility of robust competition without government intervention. Microsoft's opponents will likely argue that the deal is further evidence that even large companies like Netscape can't stand against Microsoft. [GD].
Removing Photos from iPhoto
Despite iPhoto's long history, many people continue to be confused about exactly what happens when you delete a photo. There are three possibilities.
If you delete a photo from an album, book, card, calendar, or saved slideshow, the photo is merely removed from that item and remains generally available in your iPhoto library.
If, however, you delete a photo while in Events or Photos view, that act moves the photo to iPhoto's Trash. It's still available, but...
If you then empty iPhoto's Trash, all photos in it will be deleted from the iPhoto library and from your hard disk.
