Set Time Zone Automatically in Snow Leopard

Frequent travelers may be interested to know that in Snow Leopard your time zone can now be set automatically by bringing up the Date & Time preference pane, clicking the Time Zone view, and selecting Set Time Zone Automatically. A progress spinner appears while Snow Leopard sends off information about the Wi-Fi signals in your vicinity and receives location data back.

WorldWrite 3.0 for the Mac ships

Send Article to a Friend

WorldWrite 3.0 for the Mac ships -- WorldWrite has been around outside the United States for two versions, but version 3.0 is now available for general worldwide consumption at a list price of $99 or $149. (The price depends on your linguistic demands; the English-only version is $99.) The svelte program requires 2 MB of application RAM and works on any Mac running System 7.1 or higher. Once I've had a chance to sit down with the software, I'll review it. Key features include: WorldScript support, tables, columns, indexing and table of contents, and color separations. The program ships with a QuarkXPress filter and supports XTND. [TJE]
