Pick an apple! 
 
iTunes Apps Tab in Landscape?

If your iPad is locked in landscape orientation when in the charging dock, apps in the Apps tab of iTunes will display in landscape orientation. (This also occurs when your iPad is not in the dock but connected to iTunes via the charging cable while in landscape orientation).

DiskExpress Pro 3.0.2 Supports 8.6 but not HFS Plus -- Alsoft has released DiskExpress Pro 3.0.2, a free update to the company's disk optimization utility that adds long-promised compatibility with current versions of the Mac OS, though not with HFS Plus-formatted volumes. Users who need disk optimization capabilities with HFS Plus volumes can use Alsoft's $30 PlusOptimizer. Almost a year after the topic first came up in TidBITS (see "PlusOptimizer Jumps, DiskExpress Pro Upgrade Promised" in TidBITS-436), Alsoft is still promising HFS Plus compatibility for a future version of DiskExpress. DiskExpress Pro requires at least a Mac with a 68020 or better processor, System 7.0, and 1 MB of RAM. Registered users of versions of DiskExpress prior to 3.0 can upgrade for $30; new copies of DiskExpress Pro 3.0.2 cost $90. The free update is a 1.1 MB download. [ACE]
