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.

ThoughtPattern Discontinued

Send Article to a Friend

ThoughtPattern Discontinued -- Stephen Zagerman of Bananafish Software announced that the company has suspended all marketing and technical support for ThoughtPattern and is searching for a U.S. publisher. ThoughtPattern is an excellent free-form database that I use extensively to store bits of text from the net. We wish them luck in finding a new publisher.
