Aladdin Releases Spring Cleaning 5.0 -- Aladdin Systems has released Spring Cleaning 5.0, adding a number of new features to the company's system clean-up and uninstaller utility. New in Spring Cleaning 5.0 is support for drag & drop to limit searches (useful on today's Mac OS X volumes with hundreds of thousands of files), a system menu for Mac OS X, support for actions that require root access in Mac OS X, improved Web cookie management, more customizable searches, and more. Aladdin claims improved performance under Mac OS X, but many actions under Mac OS X are still extremely lengthy. Spring Cleaning 5.0 costs $50, with upgrades from previous versions available at $30 (the same price is available to owners of many other Mac disk utilities). [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.
