Improve Apple Services with AirPort Base Stations

You can make iChat file transfers, iDisk, and Back to My Mac work better by turning on a setting with Apple AirPort base stations released starting in 2003. Launch AirPort Utility, select your base station, click Manual Setup, choose the Internet view, and click the NAT tab. Check the Enable NAT Port Mapping Protocol (NAT-PMP) box, and click Update. NAT-PMP lets your Mac OS X computer give Apple information to connect back into a network that's otherwise unreachable from the rest of the Internet. This speeds updates and makes connections work better for services run by Apple.

ClarisWorks Turns Four -- ClarisWorks 4.0 for the Macintosh is now shipping, and upgrades are available for $49 (list price is $129). The Windows version of ClarisWorks 4.0 is slated for release before the end of 1995 and will have the same interface as the Macintosh version. ClarisWorks 4.0 requires System 7, and runs on any 68020-based Macintosh or newer. New features include a new way of doing styles, called ExpressStyle; an HTML translation tool; general improvements and easier report generation in the database module; and WorldScript support. Overall, and especially given the price, the feature set looks impressive. My only quibble is that Claris hasn't yet updated their Web site to provide information and a demo about for new version.
