If you have handcrafted pages in your Sites folder, no worries (at least until Apple changes the rules again): your site will go on. But, if any of those pages link to media in your Movies or Pictures folders (as a few of my pages do, and as the picture in this article did until I moved it into the new /Sites/Pictures folder that I just created), those pages will no longer show the linked media.
**** Left 4 Dead 2 <http://www.macworld.com/reviews/product/702025/review/left_4_dead_2.html?expand=true&lsrc=rss_main>
Chris Holt, Macworld
Left 4 Dead 2 has shrugged off the predecessor's underdog status, and has now become an expansive, varied, and beautifully atmospheric standard for which all other survival horror games are judged. It's no wonder some consider it the scariest video game of all time.

**** Apple blunders, no vibration on iPod touch <http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/10/09/08/apple_blunders_no_vibration_on_ipod_touch.html>
Josh Ong, AppleInsider
Despite earlier references on the Apple website to a "vibrating alert" for the fourth-generation iPod touch, the new device lacks a vibration motor.

Apple has a funny way of doing things sometimes. It's rare for a company to release a new version of a product and take away key features.

Many adults have a fantasy that if they could go back to college â now that the desire to party, drink and sleep around has faded to a burnished memory â theyâd get so much more out of it. The publishing industry often reflects this wish. Every season brings offerings that are right at home on anyoneâs continuing-ed syllabus: innovative, original ways to study world history through lenses trained on the minutiae of salt or cod, earthworms or spices, tea or telephones. Now, finally, for those of us who wrestled with Rocks for Jocks, pined amid Physics for Poets and schlepped through college on 101s of any and every subject â the beloved survey courses â hereâs that most popular professor, Bill Bryson, with a fascinating new book, âAt Home: A Short History of Private Life.â

Simeon Bennett, Bloomberg
Singapore, which spent almost S$20 billion ($15 billion) in the past decade to become a scientific- research hub, will tighten access to funds for biomedical scientists in an effort to quicken returns on investments.
