Editing iCal Events in Snow Leopard

Snow Leopard makes looking at event details in iCal easier. In the Leopard version of iCal, you had to double-click an event to reveal only some information in a pop-up box; you then needed to click the Edit button (or press Command-E) to edit an item's information. In Snow Leopard, choose Edit > Show Inspector (or press Command-Option-I) to bring up a floating inspector that provides an editable view of any items selected in your calendar.

Apple has released iTunes 11.3.1 with a couple of podcast-related fixes. The update squashes a bug that prevented subscribed podcasts from updating with new episodes and rectifies an issue that caused iTunes to become unresponsive while browsing podcast episodes in List view. iTunes 11.3.1 is available as a direct download from Apple’s iTunes Web page or via Software Update. (Free, 229 MB, 10.6.8+)

Check out the Take Control ebooks that expand on the topic in this article:

This revision no longer displays the state of charge of an attached device, i.e., iPhone/iPad. You used to be able to see the percentage of battery charge in the summary for a device.

I still see the charge percentage for my attached iPhone (OS X 10.9.4, iTunes 11.3.1 & iPhone 5s, iOS 7.1.2).
