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 to Release Multimedia Tuner

Apple to Release Multimedia Tuner -- Rumor has it that Apple just completed work on Apple Multimedia Tuner 2.0, a system extension designed to enhance the performance of QuickTime 2.0 and Sound Manager 3.0 on systems 6.0.7 through 7.5. The system extension improves QuickTime and audio memory management and helps applications that do not "properly" initialize movie playback under QuickTime 2.0. It should also improve reliability in low memory conditions on the Quadra 840AV and 660AV.

Preliminary tests indicate that the Tuner does help QuickTime and audio playback in low-memory situations on a variety of systems. One wonders if there was ever a version 1.0 of this patch, but sometimes it's best not to ask too many questions. Multimedia Tuner 2.0 will reportedly be distributed free of charge; keep an eye on Apple's FTP servers and appropriate Usenet newsgroups for an announcement. [Pythaeus]
