Apple has released Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 4 and Java for Mac OS X 10.5 Update 9, which the company says provide improved compatibility, security, and reliability by updating Java SE 6 to 1.6.0-24. (On Macs running Mac OS X 10.5 that aren’t 64-bit capable, Java is updated to 1.5.0-28.) Apple suggests that you quit any Web browsers and Java applications before installing the update.

Fill in Gaps in Pear Note
If you ever find yourself zoning out during a meeting or class, only later to realize that you forgot to take notes for 20 minutes, Pear Note makes it easy to fill in those gaps. To do so:
- Open your Pear Note document.
- Hit play.
- Click on the last text you did type to jump to that point in the recording.
- Click the lock to unlock the text of the note.
- Take notes on the part you missed.
Your new notes will be synced to the recording just as if you'd taken them live with the rest of your notes.

I don't seem to be able to replicate this problem with any other Java programs, but I recommend doing a full system backup before installing the update - there is no way of removing the update once it is installed!
