Popular among Windows PC users .Uifis an alternative disk image format to others like .iso, .img and .bin-.cue couples.
You can open and convert UIF disk images on Mac OS X using one of the following disk image utilities:

Uif2iso4mac a GUI applicationbyTorsten Curdt . Uif2iso4mac is built upon Luigi Auriemma’s uif2iso command line utility with a Mac graphic user interface adding basic functionalities of a real Mac app like drag-and-drop and a menu bar i.e. choosing an image using the File > Open menu.
With Target Display mode, you can use your 27-inch iMac with Mac OS X as an external display. Connect any computer or other device with a Mini DisplayPort to your 27-inch iMac using a Mini DisplayPort to Mini DisplayPort cable or using a converter that converts other electrical, video, and audio protocols from another source device to Mini DisplayPort compliant signals.

Here’s an easy trick to make if you want to transfer a website you’ve made on Mac using iWeb to another Mac to continue editing with iWeb on that Mac.
Exit iWeb on the first machine (where you created the web site).
Using the finder, go to your home folder, open your Library folder, then open the Appliation Support folder.
Copy the iWeb folder to a thumb drive and take that to the other machine (or find some other way to copy the entire folder to the other machine). (If you don’t see an iWeb folder then check to see that you are not looking in the system Library folder.)
On the second machine, drag this folder to your own Library/Appliation Support folder, replacing any iWeb folder already there. (Be sure iWeb is not running there too.)
Finally, launch iWeb, and you can now edit the web site on the second machine.
One of the most annoying and frustrating thing especially for the so-called Windows-converts (i.e. people who “switch to the Mac” from Windows) on Mac OS X is that the maximize button (the small round green button with a ‘+’ sign on the upper-left corner of every window) acts differently on Mac than Windows in most cases. In fact, the maximize button behavior varies from application to application on the Mac, and unlike on Windows, it does not necesseraly maximize the window, but just change its dimensions. (See below and the rest of the article for details and for a couple work-around solutions to making windows full-screen on web browsers such as Safari).
On windows, the maximize button – where the term “maximize” is inherent from Windows operating system anyway – simply enlarges a window to almost full screen except that the window’s title bar, menu bar and the task bar remains visible and the remaining space is allocated to the window and its contents. On the Mac, however, this may not exactly be the case – especially when using Safari. [Read more]
