Cull Graphics Quickly with Preview

You're faced with a folder full of images, and you need to sort through them, trashing some number and keeping the rest. For a quick way to do that, select them all, and open them in Preview (in Leopard, at least). You'll get a single window with each graphic as an item in the drawer. Use the arrow keys to move from image to image, and when you see one you want to trash, press Command-Delete to move it from its source folder to the Finder's Trash. (Delete by itself just removes the picture from Preview's drawer.)

 
 

Colorful Handhelds Lead Palm's New Lineup

Send Article to a Friend

Colorful Handhelds Lead Palm's New Lineup -- Palm, Inc. revitalized its line of handhelds today by introducing three new models: the new consumer-oriented Palm m100, the updated wireless Palm VIIx, and two Limited Edition Palm Vx models with colorful metal casings. The new $150 Palm m100 introduces a new case style with a physically smaller screen than its predecessors, a new Note Pad application that stores handwritten notes and sketches, and an on-screen clock. To compete with Handspring's multi-colored Visor line, the m100 adds colorful snap-on faceplates in muted, non-fruitlike colors. The wireless Palm VIIx, an update to the Palm VII, includes 8 MB of memory instead of 2 MB, and is available for $450. The Limited Edition model of the Palm Vx, offered exclusively through Palm's online store for $400, is available in Millennium Blue and Champagne colored aluminum casings.

All three models feature Palm OS 3.5. For the first time, the Macintosh Palm Desktop software is available with the m100 and Limited Edition Palm Vx out of the box instead of as a separate purchase or online download (Palm's Web site implies that the Palm VIIx doesn't offer the same software); however, Mac users must still purchase a USB or serial cable adapter. Palm also lowered estimated street prices on its existing color Palm IIIc and wireless Palm VII handhelds to $400. [MHA]
