Apple Introduces Mac OS X Universal Logo -- With the Intel Core Duo-based iMac available and the MacBook Pro to follow shortly, Apple has announced a new logo program that developers can use to identify universal binary programs that contain both PowerPC and Intel code (most PowerPC-only programs will run on the Intel-based Macs thanks to Apple's Rosetta technology, but performance will likely suffer somewhat). The Mac OS X Universal Logo Program comes with a license agreement and usage guidelines that are extremely specific, so I'm not going to risk Apple's legal wrath to display the logo on the TidBITS Web site; instead, check it out on Apple's site to see what you should look for in the months to come as more of the software we all use starts to come in universal binary versions.

Extend Mac OS X's Screenshots
Mac OS X has a variety of built in screenshot methods. Here's a look at a few that offer more versatility than the basic full-screen capture (Command-Shift-3):
• Press Command-Shift-4 and you'll get a crosshair cursor with which you can drag to select and capture a certain area of the screen.
• Press Command-Shift-4-Space to select the entire window that the cursor is over, clicking on the window will then capture it. The resulting screenshot will even get a nice drop shadow.
• Hold down the Space bar after dragging out a selection window to move your selection rectangle around on the screen.
• Hold down Shift after dragging out a selection to constrain the selection in either horizontal or vertical orientation, depending on the direction of your drag.
• Hold down Option after dragging out a selection to expand the selection window around a center point.
