As the first decade of the twenty-first century comes to a close, We-Envision.com has created an unusual iPhone app that provides a visual overview of 75 key world events from the last ten years. Bush v. Gore, the September 11th terrorist attacks, the Southeast Asia tsunami, Hurricane Katrina, the French student protests of 2006 and Burmese monk protests of 2007, Barack Obama's election, and many others are presented via full-screen photos from news sites, organized by date or subject, and bolstered by Wikipedia-derived details.follow link
Set Password Activation Time in Snow Leopard
In Snow Leopard, you can now set an amount of time after your Mac goes to sleep or engages the screen saver before it requires a password to log back on. In Leopard, the option was simply to require the password or not. Choose among several increments, between 5 seconds and 4 hours, from System Preferences > Security.

Decade Review App from We-Envision.com
Really? I thought we still have about 380 days before that!
In any case, cheers for the Holiday season... Mark
I have to say that we in the middle of Europe (i.e. Germany) have the same understanding of a decade as people in the far east (or west?), see http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jahrzehnt . Analogous, at least for Germans, the 20th century started with the beginning of 1901 and completed with the end of 2000. But obviously, there are different ways to count - we just need to know what we're talking about...
All the best to you, Mark & your families!
