Set Time Zone Automatically in Snow Leopard

Frequent travelers may be interested to know that in Snow Leopard your time zone can now be set automatically by bringing up the Date & Time preference pane, clicking the Time Zone view, and selecting Set Time Zone Automatically. A progress spinner appears while Snow Leopard sends off information about the Wi-Fi signals in your vicinity and receives location data back.

QuickDraw GX correction -- I regrettably and erroneously wrote in TidBITS-244 that you cannot generate a PostScript file by printing to disk through the Print dialog box. Using the LaserWriter GX driver, you can print to a PostScript file, much as you could using previous LaserWriter drivers. Sorry for the confusion. [TJE]
