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.)

If you purchased iPhoto through the app store, you can get the upgrade only through the app store. Software update will not show the update, and if you download the update from Apple's download web site, you will be prevented from installing it.

Ooo, good point - we're going to have to keep that in mind going forward.
Also, if you bought it from the App Store, its actually a 727 MB update as the whole app must be downloaded again (due to the digital signature). Apple need to fix this if the App Store is going to play an ever bigger role....
