Macworld Expo Tokyo 2003 Cancelled -- Following the recent dustup between Apple and IDG World Expo over the East Coast Macworld Expo, MacUser UK is now reporting that IDG World Expo has cancelled Macworld Expo Tokyo in 2003. Apparently, Apple was the first to pull out, but was soon followed by industry heavyweights Adobe, Macromedia, and Microsoft. IDG World Expo said the decision applies only to the 2003 show, and no decisions have been made regarding future shows. This move lends credence to the theory that Apple is downplaying expensive trade shows in favor of its retail network of 50 Apple Stores. Some people have also advanced the thought that perhaps Apple is disentangling itself from Macworld Expo in favor of a series of Apple Expo trade shows that it could control, such as Apple Expo in Paris, the next instance of which is still scheduled for September 2003. Our question: Just how important are trade shows to the sense of community that pervades the Macintosh world? Even though only a small percentage of Mac users ever attend a Macworld Expo, the shows provide important milestones for businesses and individuals alike, not to mention essential personal networking opportunities. Apple should tread carefully. [ACE]
Copy Disk Image as Folder
When you open a .dmg file, a disk image is mounted. You are then generally supposed to copy the contents of that disk image to your hard drive (to your Desktop, your Applications folder, or wherever). But what if you want to copy the whole disk image, including all its contents, as a folder? Hold the Option key, and drag the "proxy icon" in the title bar of the disk image window to the destination in the Finder.
