Move the Dock Quickly

You may find it convenient to move the position of the Dock when working in certain programs or with certain files. Rather than choosing a different position from the Dock preferences pane or using a submenu in the Apple menu's Dock submenu, you can move your Dock to a different screen edge merely by Shift-dragging the separator that divides the application and document sections.

Airfoil 4.7.3

Send Article to a Friend

Rogue Amoeba has updated its Airfoil network audio streaming app for the Mac to version 4.7.3, which now offers full support for receiving audio through Airfoil Speakers from devices running iOS 6. The Instant On component receives an update to version 6.0.2 to fix several unspecified issues, and the Airfoil Video Player has been fixed to avoid a crash on OS X 10.8.2. Additionally, audio can be captured from the WebKit application on Mountain Lion and Airfoil has been given an improved update process with automatic downloads and installation on quitting the app (via a newer version of Sparkle). ($25 new with a 15-percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 9.1 MB, release notes)
