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.

FullWrite has been upgraded by Akimbo Systems, the company that rescued the popular word processor from the depths of Borland after Borland purchased Ashton-Tate. The upgrade to FullWrite 1.7 fixes an incompatibility with the 68040 processor cache and a problem with System 7 that caused the Set Margins dialog to disappear. FullWrite 1.7 is available free to users of FullWrite 1.5 or higher and costs $20 for users of other versions, although if you later upgrade to FullWrite 2.0 (scheduled for early 1994) that $20 will be removed from the $99 upgrade price. Akimbo charges a $7.50 shipping and handling fee. If you use FullWrite 1.5s, an updater application is available on America Online and will be on CompuServe soon. No word on Internet availability yet.
