Allume Ships Spring Cleaning 7 -- Allume Systems has shipped Spring Cleaning 7, the company's long-standing cleanup utility for identifying unwanted files and folders and dealing with them (in ways other than just wholesale deletion). New features in the Spring Cleaning application include the Logs & Temporary Items Finder, which identifies potentially massive log files and temporary items, and SizeManager, which helps you find (and visually compare) files based on size criteria you set. Spring Cleaning 7 also now saves custom searches, makes it easier to restore files that were moved non-destructively, displays a preview of selected files, and makes it easier to use the QuickCompare application to compare similar files. Also new is a separate application - System Snapshot - that scans your system to establish a baseline and then shows changes since the last scan. Spring Cleaning 7 costs $50; upgrades from earlier versions or from iClean cost $20 (unless you purchased Spring Cleaning 6.0 after 16-Jul-04, at which point the upgrade is free). [ACE]
Spacebar Magnifies Photos in iPhoto '08
In iPhoto '08, you can choose whether double-clicking on a photo will edit it or magnify it. I prefer my double-clicks to edit photos, but every now and then it's nice to magnify a photo. To do that, even when double-click is set to edit, just select the photo and press the Spacebar.
