Micromat has released TechTool Pro 6. The new version of the long-standing utility adds support for creating a bootable volume on the Mac’s active drive, eliminating the need for a bootable DVD. That means your emergency startup volume no longer requires Apple’s boot disk updates to remain current. TechTool Pro 6 also makes it easier to diagnose and repair hardware issues. Other new features include Volume Cloning, for quickly creating exact volume duplicates, and the Local Network Tool, which lists active services and ports on each Mac and Bonjour device on the local network. ($99.99 new, $39.99 upgrade)
Disable Caps Lock
If you find yourself pressing the Caps Lock key accidentally as much as I do, note that you can disable it entirely in Mac OS X. Open the Keyboard & Mouse preference pane, click the Modifier Keys button, and in the dialog that appears, select No Action from the Caps Lock pop-up menu. You could remap it to another modifier instead, but that might make using differently configured Macs more difficult.

For that matter I don't see anything new I want here. Carbon Copy Cloner already makes bootable clones. Portscan (part of Network Utility that comes with every Mac) scans open ports. I guess the Local Network Tool shows you your whole local network, if you have a big one.
