Open Files with App Switcher

Using the Application Switcher to open files can sometimes be faster than hunting for an Application's window or searching through a jam packed Dock for an Application's icon. First grab your file, press Command-Tab, and then drop the file onto the desired application's icon to open it within that program.

Adobe Acrobat XI and Reader XI 11.0.02

Send Article to a Friend

Adobe has updated Acrobat XI and Reader XI to version 11.0.02 solely to improve the security of the two apps. The updates address critical vulnerabilities in versions 11.0.01 and earlier, vulnerabilities that could enable an attacker to take control of your system (detailed over at The Next Web). The update for Acrobat XI is just 11.9 MB; meanwhile you can choose between the delta updater (25 MB) or the full installer (76.6 MB) for Reader XI. Additionally, Adobe recommends that users of older editions of Acrobat and Reader update their software as well, with Acrobat getting version 10.1.6 (13.5 MB) and version 9.5.4 (10.8 MB). If you can’t update to Reader XI 11.0.02, you can similarly choose version 10.1.6 (17 MB) and version 9.5.4 (5.4 MB for Intel, 5.6 MB for PowerPC). ($449 new for Acrobat XI Pro, free updates)
