SoundJam 1.6 Adds MP2, Hierarchical Playlists -- Casady & Greene has shipped SoundJam 1.6, a free update to the company's popular MP3 player and encoder. SoundJam 1.6 can now encode into MP2 format (MPEG Audio Layer 2, an older and less-efficient audio format that sounds better than MP3 at high bitrates) and also supports transparent skins, adds hierarchical playlists, provides fast forward and fast reverse buttons for currently playing music, supports live window dragging, and includes a skin builder. The release also includes a SoundJam Extension that changes CD track names in the Finder to those found in the CDDB. SoundJam 1.6 is a 1.8 MB download. [ACE]
Spacebar Magnifies Photos in iPhoto '08
In iPhoto '08, you can choose whether double-clicking on a photo will edit it or magnify it. I prefer my double-clicks to edit photos, but every now and then it's nice to magnify a photo. To do that, even when double-click is set to edit, just select the photo and press the Spacebar.
