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.

MacHeadlines 1.8 Splits into Pro and Lite -- Trexar Technologies has split MacHeadlines, its customizable scrolling ticker of Web site headlines (see "Trexar Releases MacHeadlines 1.7" in TidBITS-493), into two versions. MacHeadlines Pro 1.8 costs $20 shareware, improves the look of the floating ticker window, and enhances handling of numerous stock symbols. MacHeadlines Lite 1.8 is free and lacks only MacHeadlines Pro's site configuration and ticker appearance capabilities. Both programs are 430K downloads. [ACE]
