Apple Extends .Mac Deadline -- If any iTools members remain on the fence about whether to pay for .Mac, Apple is giving you a couple more weeks to decide. The special $50 upgrade price for current iTools members will be available until 14-Oct-02 instead of 30-Sep-02; on 15-Oct-02, any data still in iTools accounts which have not signed up for .Mac services will be erased. So, if you don't plan to use .Mac, you have an extra two weeks to rescue any data and inform correspondents to use a different email address. [JLC]
Mac OS X Zip Expanding Utility
Firefox (and possibly other applications) may ask you what you want to do with .zip archives that you download from the Internet. If you want to expand them with Mac OS X (rather than StuffIt Expander), you may be unsure of which application actually does the job. You're looking for Archive Utility (in Leopard and later) or BOMArchiveHelper (in Tiger). In either case, the application is stored in Hard Drive/System/Library/Core Services/. Don't move it from there, though, or you'll confuse matters.
