Extend Mac OS X's Screenshots

Mac OS X has a variety of built in screenshot methods. Here's a look at a few that offer more versatility than the basic full-screen capture (Command-Shift-3):

• Press Command-Shift-4 and you'll get a crosshair cursor with which you can drag to select and capture a certain area of the screen.

• Press Command-Shift-4-Space to select the entire window that the cursor is over, clicking on the window will then capture it. The resulting screenshot will even get a nice drop shadow.

• Hold down the Space bar after dragging out a selection window to move your selection rectangle around on the screen.

• Hold down Shift after dragging out a selection to constrain the selection in either horizontal or vertical orientation, depending on the direction of your drag.

• Hold down Option after dragging out a selection to expand the selection window around a center point.

Send Article to a Friend

Apple Posts $14 Million Q2 Profit -- Apple Computer posted a small $14 million profit for its second fiscal quarter of the year on revenues of $1.474 billion for the quarter. Overall revenue was down 1 percent from the same time last year, but margins were up to 28.3 percent and international sales accounted for 47 percent of Apple's total sales volume. Apple shipped 711,000 Macs in the quarter, with fully 40 percent of them being notebooks - a strong debut for the new 12-inch and 17-inch PowerBooks.

Although Apple's profit isn't stunning, the company managed to increase its cash-on-hand to over $4.5 billion, and has reduced the time in channel of its products to four-and-a-half weeks. Apple says its next quarter should be relatively flat (e.g., a small profit), assuming no major news shakes the Apple tree. The market has been abuzz of late with rumors Apple may apply some of its considerable cash assets towards the purchase of Universal Music, although both Apple CEO Steve Jobs and Vivendi director Claude Bebear have denied Apple has made an offer for the world's largest music label. Apple is widely speculated to be preparing the imminent launch of a commercial music service to tie in with iTunes and the iPod; Universal Music's catalog would be a key component to any online commercial music service.
