New Documents in Snow Leopard's TextEdit

In the Snow Leopard version of TextEdit, you can now create a new document by Control-clicking TextEdit's Dock icon (when it's running), and choosing New Document from the pop-up menu. This isn't a major feature, of course, since you can also just press Command-N while in TextEdit, but consider Control-clicking other applications' Dock icons to see what functions they might make available.

Carbon Copy Cloner 3.4.4

Send Article to a Friend

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Carbon Copy Cloner, Bombich Software has released Carbon Copy Cloner 3.4.4 with a myriad of new features, tweaks, and fixes. The popular donationware disk cloning and backup utility now provides support for archiving and cloning the Lion Recovery HD partition, and it can now clone a Lion Installation disk image onto a physical volume. You can also configure scheduled tasks to wake or boot the system. The update also fixes bugs associated with remembering the last preset, scheduling tasks on the first of the current month, mounting a disk image under uncommon permissions conditions, and many more. (Free update, 6.0 MB, release notes)
