Sometimes you want to move a file in the Finder across volumes, not copy that file. Holding down the Command key while dragging ensures that the item is copied, and then its original deleted, adding up to a move.

 
 

iTunes 7.0.1, iLife '06, iWork '06 Updated

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has released a maintenance update for iTunes 7 that deals with a variety of issues in the initial release. According to Apple, iTunes 7.0.1 "addresses stability and performance issues with Cover Flow, CD importing, iPod syncing, and more." Windows users were apparently hit harder with iTunes 7.0, so we hope this release solves those issues as well. iTunes 7.0.1 is available via Software Update or as a 25 MB download.

The programs that make up iLife '06 and iWork '06 add interoperability with Aperture 1.5 (see "Aperture 1.5 Faces Latest Lightroom Beta at Photokina," 02-Oct-06). The following updaters are available via Software Update or as separate stand-alone downloads: iMovie HD 6.0.3 (7.1 MB), iWeb 1.1.2 (23 MB), iDVD 6.0.3 (7.2 MB), GarageBand 3.0.4 (30 MB), iPhoto 6.0.5 (80 MB), Keynote 3.0.2 (2.7 MB), and Pages 2.0.2 (2.8 MB). The iMovie HD update also claims to improve stability and fix a number of unspecified "minor issues," while the iPhoto update also contains new themes for printing calendars, greeting cards, and postcards.
