View Extra Bluetooth Details in Snow Leopard

In Snow Leopard, Option-click the Bluetooth icon in the menu bar to view a few additional items in the Bluetooth menu. Specifically, it enables you to open three utility applications: Bluetooth Explorer, Bluetooth Diagnostic Utility, and PacketLogger. These are likely of interest primarily to experts, but if you're having troubles with Bluetooth, the Bluetooth Diagnostic Utility in particular may be useful. (These tools are available only if you've installed Apple's Developer Tools.)

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]
