Spin Through Toolbar View Options

Although many people never change their toolbars from the default settings, all standard toolbars on the Mac offer six states: icon only, text only, and icon and text, with all three coming in normal and small size. You can change them by choosing View > Customize Toolbar.

But there's a shortcut that makes it easier to check out each variant. Simply Command-click the toolbar lozenge at the upper right of a window, and the toolbar switches to the next view. Click it enough times, and you cycle back to the start.

Apple Reschedules WWDC Yet Again

Apple Reschedules WWDC Yet Again -- In a move that will no doubt cause even more consternation, Apple today announced that it has again rescheduled the upcoming Worldwide Developer Conference, this time to coincide with the new Create conference that replaced Macworld Expo from 14-Jul-03 through 18-Jul-03. Ron Okamoto, Apple's vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations, said, "Between our discussions with the MacHack organizing committee and the just-announced availability of room at the Create conference in New York City, this move became the obvious best choice for both Apple and the Macintosh developer community." As before, the Apple Developer Connection will offer help for those who have already rejiggered their airplane and hotel reservations to match Apple's previous choice for the WWDC venue - San Francisco in June.

Overall, the move makes a lot of sense, since even Macworld Expo has been incapable of filling the cavernous halls of New York City's Javits Convention Center, and it's unlikely that Create will draw nearly as many attendees. That means there's plenty of unused room, and Apple was probably able to negotiate a good deal on the space. Though New York isn't cheap, combining two conferences into one may save significant amounts of money for companies that would have to attend both WWDC and Create. And, of course, now Create will get a Steve Jobs keynote and the accompanying product introductions that ensure that Macworld Expos are never dull. [ACE]
