The Mireth Technology Corp. announces:
* ShredIt for Macintosh 4.9 is an electronic document shredder for Macintosh that securely deletes files, folders and disk free space. (Otherwise, throwing a file in the trash only removes the file name from the directory, but not the file contents from the hard disk.)
Users can use ShredIt for shredding previously deleted items that are still recoverable on the hard disk. The upgrade's "Safe Place" feature protects important documents from accidental shredding.
* MacVCD 3.0 is software that plays video CDs on the Macintosh, with full screen display, automatic video CD format recognition and file chaining. It features auto-play and auto-eject, track and chapter selection, and audio channel selection for both multi-language and karaoke soundtracks.

Whoops, I Did it Again
Steve Jobs may be earning a rep as the Britney Spears of high tech.
Never mind that probably most of the out-of-town attendees of the next Macworld Conference & Expo (Jan. 8-11, at San Francisco's Moscone Center) had already bought advanced-purchase fare tickets to the annual Apple lovefest. Jobs decided to pull a Bill Gates (à la Comdex), and be the opening act to the show, moving his traditional kickoff keynote speech to January 7 at 9 a.m.
"This is the first time in the history of Macworld Conference & Expo that the keynote will take place the day before the exhibit floor opens, and Apple and IDG World Expo promise it will be well worth attending," grovels the Web site. (The site also offers to help with travel arrangements for those impacted by the scheduling change.)
What's it all about? Rumors say there will be a new flat-screen iMac.
