Palm Unveils Tungsten T -- Palm, Inc. improved the top of its line of handhelds today by releasing the Palm Tungsten T, a color organizer that adds multimedia capabilities and the new Palm OS 5 to the company's lineup. The $500 Tungsten T includes built-in Bluetooth wireless networking, 16 MB of memory, a high-resolution (320 pixels square, double that of previous Palm-branded handhelds) color screen capable of displaying 65,000 colors, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, and a button for recording voice memos. Most striking, however, is the Tungsten T's compact form factor: the bottom section of the device slides down to reveal the Graffiti area. It measures 4 inches (10.16 cm) tall when closed, or 4.8 inches (12.19 cm) when open, is 0.6 inches (1.52 cm) thick, and weighs 5.6 ounces (158.8 grams). The unit is powered by a built-in lithium-polymer battery, and in a departure for Palm, runs on the Texas Instruments 144 MHz OMAP 1510 ARM-based processor. As with most high-end Palm handhelds, the Tungsten T also includes an infrared port and an expansion slot for Secure Digital/MultiMedia Card media. [JLC]
Removing Photos from iPhoto
Despite iPhoto's long history, many people continue to be confused about exactly what happens when you delete a photo. There are three possibilities.
If you delete a photo from an album, book, card, calendar, or saved slideshow, the photo is merely removed from that item and remains generally available in your iPhoto library.
If, however, you delete a photo while in Events or Photos view, that act moves the photo to iPhoto's Trash. It's still available, but...
If you then empty iPhoto's Trash, all photos in it will be deleted from the iPhoto library and from your hard disk.
