Show Recent Items in Snow Leopard

The Recent Items submenu in the Apple menu is handy, but what if you want to work with a file in there in the Finder, rather than open it? Just press Command when that menu is showing, and all the Applications and Documents change to "Show ... in Finder." This feature is new as of Mac OS X 10.6.3 Snow Leopard.

Shockwave Released

Send Article to a Friend

Shockwave Released -- Macromedia has released final versions of Shockwave for Director 4.0 Plug-Ins, and says it's hard at work on Shockwave for Director 5.0. Macromedia has also released a beta Shockwave plug-in for FreeHand, which allows viewing and manipulation of scalable vector graphics. As with previous releases, Shockwave plug-ins want plenty of memory, and reports on stability remain mixed. [GD]
