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.

Seymour Cray Passes Away

Send Article to a Friend

Seymour Cray Passes Away -- This is not strictly Macintosh-related, but we wish to note the passing of Seymour Cray on 05-Oct-96, from injuries suffered in an automobile accident. Cray built the world's first transistor-based supercomputer in 1958 and is widely credited with the concept of Reduced Instruction Set Computing (RISC), which is the basis for the PowerPC and other modern microprocessors. Although Cray's business ventures weren't always successful (Cray Research was sold to Silicon Graphics a few years ago), he will likely remain one of the most influential figures in high-performance computing for some time to come.
