Focusing on maintenance, iTunes 10.6.1 fixes several bugs that could cause iTunes to crash while playing videos, changing artwork size in Grid view, or syncing photos to a device, and it fixes the reading of interface elements when using Apple’s VoiceOver screen-access technology. It also addresses a problem where iTunes became unresponsive when syncing an iPod nano or iPod shuffle. Lastly, this iTunes update returns proper alphabetic order to TV show episodes when browsing your iTunes library from an Apple TV. Previously, when choosing to browse By Show, titles were jumbled and newer downloads tended to appear at the bottom of the list. (Free, 126.23 MB new download or 64.9 MB via Software Update)
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.
