Move the Dock Quickly

You may find it convenient to move the position of the Dock when working in certain programs or with certain files. Rather than choosing a different position from the Dock preferences pane or using a submenu in the Apple menu's Dock submenu, you can move your Dock to a different screen edge merely by Shift-dragging the separator that divides the application and document sections.

Aladdin Acquires Trexar

Aladdin Acquires Trexar -- Aladdin Systems has announced its acquisition of Trexar Technologies, makers of specialized Mac OS Internet utilities MacTuner (for finding and connecting to Internet-enabled radio and television stations around the world), MacHeadlines (a desktop news ticker), and the long-popular WeatherTracker (which presents weather and forecast information for cities around the world). Trexar's privacy utility MacWasher is now available from Webroot Software, the company for which it was originally developed. Terms of the acquisition have not been disclosed, but Aladdin will be retaining Trexar's employees and supporting Trexar's products, although they overlap somewhat with other recent acquisitions, IntelliNews and MacTicker. Aladdin obviously feels that svelte, dedicated Internet information utilities have concrete benefits over enormous, general purpose Web browsers, particularly as Aladdin enters the Palm OS marketplace. Aladdin Systems is a current TidBITS sponsor; Trexar sponsored TidBITS in 1999. [GD]
