Editing iCal Events in Snow Leopard

Snow Leopard makes looking at event details in iCal easier. In the Leopard version of iCal, you had to double-click an event to reveal only some information in a pop-up box; you then needed to click the Edit button (or press Command-E) to edit an item's information. In Snow Leopard, choose Edit > Show Inspector (or press Command-Option-I) to bring up a floating inspector that provides an editable view of any items selected in your calendar.

Firmware Updates for Mac mini, MacBook, and 13-inch MacBook Pro

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has released a trio of similar updates for the following mid-2010 models: Mac mini EFI Firmware Update 1.5, MacBook EFI Firmware Update 2.1, and MacBook Pro (13-inch) EFI Firmware Update 2.5. Each of these updates enables Lion Recovery from an Internet connection (and all of them require Mac OS X 10.7.2 or later). Additionally, the Mac mini EFI Firmware Update 1.5 fixes an issue with the setting for restart after a power failure. As with any firmware update, you should read the installation instructions carefully before installing. To ensure you get an update only if it’s necessary, we recommend relying on Software Update; if an update doesn’t appear for you, it’s not appropriate for your Mac. (Free, 3.1 MB)

No love for the 2010 iMacs?

How about upgrading the firmware for a mac mini server running with 10.6 ? I don't care about Lion recovery, but I would definitely like to have the fix of the restart after a power failure (pretty useful for a server...).
