Nuance has released Dragon Dictate 2.0.3 to address performance problems when using the dictation software in Microsoft Word and FileMaker 11. No other changes are included, but if you like talking to either Word or FileMaker via Dragon Dictate, you're probably jonesing for this update. ($199.99 new, free update, 13.4 MB)
Avoid Simple Typos
If, like me, you find yourself typing 2911 in place of 2011 entirely too often, you can have Mac OS X (either Lion or Snow Leopard) fix such typos for you automatically. Just open the Language & Text pane of System Preferences, click the Text button at the top, and then add a text substitution by clicking the + button underneath the list. It won't work everywhere (for that you'll want a utility like Smile's TextExpander), but it should work in applications like Pages and TextEdit, and in Save dialog boxes.
