Copy Disk Image as Folder

When you open a .dmg file, a disk image is mounted. You are then generally supposed to copy the contents of that disk image to your hard drive (to your Desktop, your Applications folder, or wherever). But what if you want to copy the whole disk image, including all its contents, as a folder? Hold the Option key, and drag the "proxy icon" in the title bar of the disk image window to the destination in the Finder.

Send Article to a Friend

Seamless speech recognition is one of those holy grails of computing, and although we're not yet at the Star Trek level, the accuracy of speech recognition on the Mac took a major step forward this year with the release of MacSpeech Dictate, which uses the same engine as the Windows market leader - Nuance's Dragon NaturallySpeaking. The current MacSpeech Dictate 1.2 adds the capability to spell out unusual words or acronyms, phrase training that enables users to fix incorrectly recognized words right away, and a Move command for verbal editing.

In this week's DealBITS drawing, you can enter to win a copy of MacSpeech Dictate, worth $199. Entrants will also receive a discount on MacSpeech Dictate, so be sure to enter at the DealBITS page. All information gathered is covered by our comprehensive privacy policy. Remember too, that if someone you refer to this drawing wins, you'll receive the same prize as a reward for spreading the word.
