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.)

Macworld Boston is over, and only two of the four days were utterly hot and uncomfortable. Boston drivers were, well, indescribable, and the city itself continues to bears less and less resemblance to the published maps. The netters' dinner was a success, as always, although several of us thought afterwards that we need to find a company to throw a stand-up party with food for Internet folks to facilitate mingling. My only regret is that I couldn't talk with more people at the netters' dinner - I enjoyed the company of those with whom I did spend time immensely. Several pictures were taken and I hope they appear on the nets in scanned form - pretty soon we'll tape the event and turn it into a QuickTime movie to waste even more net bandwidth than Apple's 1984 commercial.
