Set Time Zone Automatically in Snow Leopard

Frequent travelers may be interested to know that in Snow Leopard your time zone can now be set automatically by bringing up the Date & Time preference pane, clicking the Time Zone view, and selecting Set Time Zone Automatically. A progress spinner appears while Snow Leopard sends off information about the Wi-Fi signals in your vicinity and receives location data back.

Keynote 5.1.1

Send Article to a Friend

Those who work with large Keynote presentations will want to pick up the just-released Keynote 5.1.1, since Apple claims it addresses issues when working with large presentations in Mac OS X 10.7 Lion (the update applies to Keynote running under 10.6 Snow Leopard as well). Apple also claims “improvements in stability and accessibility.” ($19.99 new in the Mac App Store, free update via Software Update or the Mac App Store, 29.94 MB)

we should be able to record our presentation on a cd or dvd in this program?

You can export a Keynote presentation to a QuickTime movie, or as individual images (one per slide), both of which could be put on a CD or DVD for sharing. You could even use iDVD to make a TV-compatible DVD.

Thanks for all this information. But i guess you can not record from keynote a cd or dvd?

No, Keynote has absolutely no concept of dealing with optical discs. Nor would you want it too - it's a system level function for data discs, and something for iDVD for discs aimed at consumer DVD players.

Thanks!

Does anyone know how to "save as" with this version of Keynote? I thought "duplicate" would be the same thing, but it's not!

Duplicate is sort of what you want, in Lion... Jeff Carlson has an article about it here.
