New Documents in Snow Leopard's TextEdit

In the Snow Leopard version of TextEdit, you can now create a new document by Control-clicking TextEdit's Dock icon (when it's running), and choosing New Document from the pop-up menu. This isn't a major feature, of course, since you can also just press Command-N while in TextEdit, but consider Control-clicking other applications' Dock icons to see what functions they might make available.

HBO Launches GO Service

Send Article to a Friend

Joining networks like NBC, ABC, CBS, and FOX, HBO has dipped its toes into the waters of Web television with its new GO service - sort of. While the other aforementioned networks enable anyone with a computer hooked up to the Internet to access content, HBO's GO will be available only to customers currently signed up for its regular cable service. For those folks, Web access to over 600 hours of premium shows and movies is free; for everyone else, there isn't even an option to pay a fee - at least not yet. It will be interesting to watch how HBO develops this service and its audience in the coming year.Generic Globefollow link

It would be much nicer if HBO would let people pay for access online to HBO video without having to be a subscriber already. I need more incentives to dump my cable company who charges us $130 a month.

I tried signing up, but it is currently only available to Verizon FIOS and Comcast subscribers. Supposedly, it will eventually be available more widely, but I guess I'll have to be patient.
