Houdah Software has released a minor update to the photo geocoding software HoudahGeo with a handful of new features. Changes include full compatibility with Aperture 3 (previously HoudahGeo would not automatically update Places in Aperture when new metadata had been added), the capability to bypass XMP sidecars during EXIF/XMP exports, and added support for log files created by the Wintec WBT-202 and Sony GPS-CS3. Also, USB connections are now supported for the Holux M-241 track logger, an issue with causing duplicate albums in Flickr has been fixed, and a bug causing incorrect timestamps on image imports has been addressed.

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.
