Cull Graphics Quickly with Preview

You're faced with a folder full of images, and you need to sort through them, trashing some number and keeping the rest. For a quick way to do that, select them all, and open them in Preview (in Leopard, at least). You'll get a single window with each graphic as an item in the drawer. Use the arrow keys to move from image to image, and when you see one you want to trash, press Command-Delete to move it from its source folder to the Finder's Trash. (Delete by itself just removes the picture from Preview's drawer.)

Apple Announces Replacements for Some iBook Logic Boards

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has announced an iBook Logic Board Repair Extension Program for some iBook models made between May 2002 and April 2003 which suffer from specific problems with the built-in and/or external display including a blank screen at startup, lines on the screen, scrambled video, or intermittent video. Once Apple determines a specific iBook is affected by the display problem, it will repair or replace the iBook's logic board at no charge. Apple says customers who have already been charged for repair of this problem will be contacted and reimbursed.

The specific iBook models affected have serial numbers ranging from UV220XXXXXX to UV318XXXXXX and are sometimes called by the following model names:

  • iBook (14.1 LCD 32 VRAM)
  • iBook (32 VRAM)
  • iBook (Opaque 16 VRAM)
  • iBook (14.1 LCD 16 VRAM)
  • iBook (16 VRAM)

To participate in the program, customers need to contact an Apple support representative or an Authorized Apple Service Provider; in the U.S., customers can call 800/275-2273 to locate a service provider. The repair program will be available for three years after the first retail sale of an affected iBook, although Apple says it may provide further repair extensions if necessary.
