How to Make an iPhone Screenshot

Want to take a screenshot of something on your iPhone or iPod touch? Press the Home button and Power button briefly at the same time, and an image of your screen will be saved to the Photos app (and will sync with iPhoto when you next connect). Don't hold the buttons too long or your device will either power down or reboot.

StuffIt Standard Edition 8.0 and StuffIt Engine 8.0.1 -- Aladdin Systems has released StuffIt Standard Edition 8.0, the most recent version of the bundle containing DropStuff, DropZip, DropTar, and the free StuffIt Expander. New features include faster compression, interface improvements to DropStuff, and support for more file formats (see "What's New in StuffIt Deluxe 8.0" in TidBITS-698 for details). StuffIt Standard Edition 8.0 costs $50, with upgrades for registered users at $15. A free 15-day trial version is available as a 7.2 MB download, and remember, downloading StuffIt Standard Edition is how you get the free StuffIt Expander.

Don't stop downloading, though, since Aladdin has also released the free StuffIt Engine 8.0.1 Updater for all versions of StuffIt. It addresses an issue where a bundled Mac OS X application (as opposed to a Classic application or a single-file application) compressed in a .sit file (as opposed to StuffIt's more modern .sitx file format), won't launch after being expanded. The problem stems from the fact that the .sit file format predates (and thus can't store) Unix file permissions that are necessary for bundled Mac OS X applications to launch. To work around this limitation, Aladdin previously set the execution bit on all expanded files, but Apple warned against that approach, so Aladdin removed the workaround in StuffIt 8.0. Unfortunately, failing to set the execution bit properly proved too inconvenient for users, so the StuffIt Engine 8.0.1 Updater restores the previous workaround until Aladdin can develop a more elegant solution. You can avoid the problem with bundled Mac OS X applications by using the .sitx file format (everyone who has StuffIt Expander 7.0, which shipped with Mac OS X 10.2 and the last security update for Mac OS X 10.1.5, can expand .sitx files). The StuffIt Engine 8.0.1 Updater is a 3.9 MB download. [ACE]
