Copy Disk Image as Folder

When you open a .dmg file, a disk image is mounted. You are then generally supposed to copy the contents of that disk image to your hard drive (to your Desktop, your Applications folder, or wherever). But what if you want to copy the whole disk image, including all its contents, as a folder? Hold the Option key, and drag the "proxy icon" in the title bar of the disk image window to the destination in the Finder.

Mac Publishing Buys MacCentral -- Mac Publishing, the folks who publish the online and print editions of Macworld and the online MacWEEK.com, have announced their acquisition of MacCentral, a Nova Scotia-based Macintosh news and information service. The terms of the agreement were not disclosed. Mac Publishing's specific goals for MacCentral aren't clear, but it's likely Mac Publishing hopes to utilize MacCentral's daily content to beef up the relatively small amount of material available each day from MacWEEK.com.
