New Documents in Snow Leopard's TextEdit

In the Snow Leopard version of TextEdit, you can now create a new document by Control-clicking TextEdit's Dock icon (when it's running), and choosing New Document from the pop-up menu. This isn't a major feature, of course, since you can also just press Command-N while in TextEdit, but consider Control-clicking other applications' Dock icons to see what functions they might make available.

Another good reason Apple should get Cyberdog out quickly, simply, and inexpensively is to lure other platforms to OpenDoc. Apple has a one-shot chance at proving all the theories behind OpenDoc. If the ingredients to make Cyberdog are freely available, you'll see it ported to OS/2 and NetWare. Now that would be a real world example of cross-platform, object-oriented development, and one where a large proportion of Internet users would benefit.
