Apple Says Goodbye to Grayscale iPods -- In conjunction with the release of iTunes 4.9, Apple merged its iPod and iPod photo product lines. Gone are the black and white screens that appear on most current iPods - it's all color now. The new lineup includes a 20 GB iPod for $300 and a 60 GB iPod for $400. Apple also introduced a 20 GB iPod U2 edition (black body, now color screen) for $330. At the same time, the price of the 1 GB iPod shuffle has been reduced to $130. [JLC]
Option-click to Hide Apps Quickly
This trick has been available in the Mac OS for years, but many people still don't know it. If you have too many windows cluttering up your screen, you can hide specific ones easily as you work. When you're in any application, hold down the Option key and click on another app's window, on the Dock, or in the Finder to switch to that other app and simultaneously hide all the windows in the previously current app.
