Alongside Mac OS X 10.7.4 and to address roughly the same set of vulnerabilities, Apple has released Security Update 2012-002 for Snow Leopard and Snow Leopard Server. The fixes revolve around the open source components of Mac OS X (including curl, Ruby, and Samba), directory services, and dealing with maliciously crafted files in ImageIO, QuickTime, and various other internal libraries. Unlike some other recent Apple updates, we haven’t seen any widespread reports of problems. (Free, 238.73/258.11 MB)
Fill in Gaps in Pear Note
If you ever find yourself zoning out during a meeting or class, only later to realize that you forgot to take notes for 20 minutes, Pear Note makes it easy to fill in those gaps. To do so:
- Open your Pear Note document.
- Hit play.
- Click on the last text you did type to jump to that point in the recording.
- Click the lock to unlock the text of the note.
- Take notes on the part you missed.
Your new notes will be synced to the recording just as if you'd taken them live with the rest of your notes.

I recall reading somewhere (probably TidBITS) Apple staggers their software update notifications to keep their servers from being overwhelmed.
