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.)

Sprint Imposes Mobile Hotspot Data Limit

Send Article to a Friend

Sprint will start limiting mobile hotspot use, when a phone is turned into a Wi-Fi gateway, to 5 GB for both current and new subscribers starting 2 October 2011. Additional gigabytes cost $50 each, billed by the megabyte. Sprint is the last U.S. carrier to offer true unlimited 3G service, which remains available for on-phone data usage — for now!favicon follow link

Didn't Sprint announce that they would not be capping data? That was a bogus report I believe.

As noted in the brief above (and linked article), Sprint is retaining unlimited on-phone data. It is also apparently not limiting higher-priced enterprise accounts. However, the company has confirmed the mobile hotspot cap.
