Smile has updated both PDFpen and PDFpenPro to version 5.8.5 to add compatibility with OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. Additionally, both releases fix an issue with scanning when running 10.7 Lion, as well as an issue where resampling at a lower resolution produced a larger saved file. Both updates are rounded out by other unnamed minor fixes and improvements. ($59.95/$99.95 new with a 20-percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 40.7/41 MB)
Avoid Simple Typos
If, like me, you find yourself typing 2911 in place of 2011 entirely too often, you can have Mac OS X (either Lion or Snow Leopard) fix such typos for you automatically. Just open the Language & Text pane of System Preferences, click the Text button at the top, and then add a text substitution by clicking the + button underneath the list. It won't work everywhere (for that you'll want a utility like Smile's TextExpander), but it should work in applications like Pages and TextEdit, and in Save dialog boxes.
