Single Time Machine Backups

Tired of Time Machine running all the time? You can turn it off in the Time Machine preference pane, but still initiate a single backup by choosing Back Up Now from Time Machine's menu bar icon. Of course, your backup is much less likely to be up to date, but Time Machine won't be taking any resources while you're trying to work.

Newton News -- In the wake of Apple's latest reorganization and cost-cutting measures, several news sources reported that Apple might ditch its Newton division. Understandably, reactions among MessagePad users have ranged from confusion to outrage. On Friday, Sandy Benett, vice president of Apple's Newton Systems Group, released a letter to developers and users reassuring them that the group "remains intact" amid the reorganization, and that support for the current MessagePad 2000 and eMate 300 is proceeding alongside development of future products.
