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.

Macintosh Columnist Don Crabb Dies

Macintosh Columnist Don Crabb Dies -- Prolific Macintosh columnist Don Crabb has died at age 44 after having been hospitalized since December with a disease of the pancreas. Movie critic Roger Ebert chose the best words when he described Don as "a big man with boundless energy" in a Chicago Sun-Times obituary. Don's energy enabled him to accomplish a great deal - at the University of Chicago, he served as associate director of graduate and undergraduate computer science, director of instructional laboratories, and a senior lecturer. In his non-academic life, Don wrote for numerous Macintosh publications and Web sites, hosted a Chicago radio show, and appeared regularly on other radio and television shows. We'll all miss him.
