View Extra Bluetooth Details in Snow Leopard

In Snow Leopard, Option-click the Bluetooth icon in the menu bar to view a few additional items in the Bluetooth menu. Specifically, it enables you to open three utility applications: Bluetooth Explorer, Bluetooth Diagnostic Utility, and PacketLogger. These are likely of interest primarily to experts, but if you're having troubles with Bluetooth, the Bluetooth Diagnostic Utility in particular may be useful. (These tools are available only if you've installed Apple's Developer Tools.)

Disinfectant 3.7

Send Article to a Friend

Disinfectant 3.7 -- John Norstad has released version 3.7 of his venerable anti-virus utility Disinfectant, this time to combat a variation on the MBDF B virus that was detected correctly by the Disinfectant INIT, but not by the application itself. Disinfectant 3.7 is also savvier about locked disks and network volumes, and now includes an up-front warning that Disinfectant does not recognize macro viruses (see TidBITS-385). [GD]
