New from Telestream is ScreenFlow 3.0, a major upgrade to the company’s screencast recording app. The new release brings a number of new features, including compatibility with Mac OS X 10.7 Lion. ScreenFlow now allows users to create freehand callouts and annotations anywhere on a video using a brush or rectangle tool. The app’s timeline has received a facelift that provides additional flexibility in editing operations and is complemented by new audio quality controls and filters. Rounding out the update are new export settings, which now include an iPad preset and an option to publish to Vimeo. ($99 new, $29 upgrade, 14.5 MB)
Option-Click AirPort Menu for Network Details
If you hold down the Option key while clicking the AirPort menu in Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, you'll see not just the names of nearby Wi-Fi networks, but additional details about the selected network. Details include the MAC address of the network, the channel used by the base station, the signal strength (a negative number; the closer to zero it is, the stronger the signal), and the transmit rate in megabits per second showing actual network throughput. If you hover the cursor over the name of a network to which you're not connected, a little yellow pop-up shows the signal strength and type of encryption.
