Envision 1.0 Released -- Back in May, I wrote about Envision, an interesting program from Open Door Networks that works to turn a Mac into an Internet-based slideshow. It's out now (a few weeks ago, in fact; programs that ship during Macworld Expo can fall through the cracks for us), and includes one particularly helpful new feature: the capability to save the images from an Envision slideshow to a folder for use with Mac OS X's screen saver. Envision 1.0 costs $40 through 15-Aug-04; after that the price will be $50. A 30-day evaluation version is available as a 2.1 MB download; give it a try and see if a digital picture frame might be in your future. [ACE]
Beware Country-Specific iTunes Stores
If you buy an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, and you happen to be a user of the iTunes Store in more than one country, take note which country's store you're viewing in iTunes when you plug in the device for the first time. This will be the country the device will register with, and you will be forever barred from purchasing or even updating free apps from anywhere else. The only way out is to delete everything on the device and do a full restore.
