AMUG Puts 3.2 GB of Shareware on DVD -- With their 650 MB of storage space, CD-ROMs just don't cut it as large file repositories any more. But the Arizona Macintosh Users Group (AMUG) has now released a collection of Macintosh freeware and shareware on DVD, containing over 9,500 items for a full 3.2 GB of files (over 5 GB decompressed). Of course, you could find and download almost everything in this collection from the Internet (including numerous updates and utilities licensed from Apple), but the DVD provides faster access for those without high-speed connections, and it's also a useful archive for future reference. AMUG includes databases of the DVD's contents in several formats; unfortunately, Sherlock searches of the DVD are unaccountably slow. The DVD costs $20 ($26 outside the U.S.) direct from AMUG. [ACE]
Open Files with App Switcher
Using the Application Switcher to open files can sometimes be faster than hunting for an Application's window or searching through a jam packed Dock for an Application's icon. First grab your file, press Command-Tab, and then drop the file onto the desired application's icon to open it within that program.
