Farallon Announces 11 Mbps SkyLINE Card -- Farallon Communications has announced a version of the company's SkyLINE 802.11 wireless networking card that runs at 11 Mbps instead of the previous speed of 2 Mbps. Due to ship in April, the AirPort-compatible PC Card provides wireless Ethernet access to recent PowerBooks (the 2400, 3400, and G3 Series, with planned support for the 190, 1400, and 5300) and portable PCs with Type II PC Card slots running Windows 95, 98, or NT (with support for Windows 2000 planned). Farallon has yet to announce a price for the 11 Mbps SkyLINE card, but will offer an upgrade for users of the 2 Mbps card at a reduced price. [ACE]
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.
