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.)

Send Article to a Friend

New QUED/M -- Nisus Software recently released an update to their popular programmer's editor, QUED/M. The new QUED/M 2.6 includes links to Symantec's THINK C 6.0 environment so that you can use QUED/M instead of THINK's editor. Other improvements include the ability to launch QUED/M from the project window, a THINK menu containing common commands, lookups to THINK Reference 2.0, access to the project's include files from QUED/M's title bar, and the ability to use THINK commands within QUED/M macros to automate compilation, linking, and building of applications. Upgrades for registered users of 2.5 cost $15, whereas owners of older versions pay $49. QUED/M 2.6 lists for $149.
