I recently burned all my digital photos onto a CD. Now I would like to be able to highlight any number of pictures and view them as a slide show. I realize there are various slide-show programs, but is there one that will do the above? Nothing does what you want better than Multimedia Xplorer at www.moonsoftware.com, and because it's shareware, the $25 price tag is right. If you don't like it, you can stop using it without sending in the money. The program displays data in an interface similar to the Windows Explorer's used to find and move files.

For years, Microsoft Windows fans have pointed to the dearth of Macintosh games as a good reason to forgo a Mac.But the pickings aren't as slim as they may seem.True, a recent visit to the CompUSA store in Towson -- which features an Apple store-within-a-store, revealed a mere 35 Mac games, compared with about 180 for Windows PCs -- a 5-to-1 ratio.And, while some wildly popular games such as Myst, Quake and Tomb Raider are available for the Mac, most are released for Windows only.
