Create Multiple Inspectors in iWork

Tired of flipping between panes in the Inspector in Keynote, Pages, and Numbers? You can open multiple copies of the Inspector window with View > New Inspector, but even better, you can Option-click one of the icons at the top of the Inspector window to open that pane in a new Inspector.


Security Update 2010-003 (Snow Leopard)

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has released Security Update 2010-003 (Snow Leopard) to address a critical vulnerability in the way Apple Type Services in Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard parses embedded fonts. Users who view or download any documents containing maliciously crafted embedded fonts run a risk of arbitrary code execution. The update addresses this issue by improving index checking. This vulnerability was first demonstrated by Charlie Miller at the Pwn2Own conference 20 days ago, which shows a reasonably quick response on Apple's part. The update requires Mac OS X 10.6.3 and is available via Software Update and the Apple Support Downloads page. (Free, 6.5 MB)

Unfortunately this security patch messed up the connection between Entourage and my Exchange Server 2003. Anyone that has a solution for this or has experienced the same thing?
I can on longer receive emails from (i.e. Hotmail) on Entourage. Very frustrating.
