Apple Releases New iMacs, Lowers eMac Prices -- Continuing the push to update its product line for AirPort Extreme and Bluetooth, Apple last week unveiled the latest revisions to its flat-panel iMac line. The new 17-inch iMac starts at $1,800 and boasts a 1 GHz PowerPC G4 and a 133 MHz system bus, 256 MB of DDR SDRAM (expandable to 1 GB), and a 4x SuperDrive (CD-RW/DVD-R), along with slots for an AirPort Extreme card (an extra $100), and an internal Bluetooth module (an extra $50). The 15-inch iMac receives only a speed bump to an 800 MHz PowerPC G4 and a $200 price drop to $1,300. Unfortunately, it's not capable of taking an AirPort Extreme card (though the slower 802.11b AirPort card remains an option) and can use only a USB-based Bluetooth adapter. Simultaneously, Apple announced price cuts - but no new features - for the 17-inch CRT-based eMac, which now costs $1,000 with a Combo drive (CD-RW/DVD-ROM) or $1,300 with a SuperDrive. [ACE]
Untrash the Trash
Feeling trasher's remorse? On Snow Leopard, you can open the Trash (click the Trash icon in the Dock) and "untrash" individual items there. Select one or more trashed items (files and folders) and choose File > Put Back. This returns the items to where they were when you originally put them in the trash. The keyboard shortcut is Command-Delete - the same as the shortcut for trashing an item in the first place, since in deleting something from the trash you are untrashing it.
