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.)

VideoShop 1.0 Free Offer

Send Article to a Friend

SyQuest and DiVA are offering a free full working version of DiVA's VideoShop 1.0 pre-loaded on 5.25" removable SyQuest cartridges. (You do have to buy a 44 MB or 88 MB cartridge, though.) Most SyQuest integrators are offering the deal, which ends 30-Apr-93, although it may be extended a few more weeks. Some bundling deals are also offered (drive, software, and video capture card), although they may vary. DiVA and SyQuest will provide full technical support.

VideoShop, a QuickTime-based video editor for creating and editing digital movies on a Mac, retails for $599. The cartridges also include a HyperCard edition of the VideoShop manual (you can order a hard copy if you want), a library of video and sound clips from The Image Bank CD Collection, and the SyQuest/SCSI Probe utility for mounting any cartridge.

If you are thinking about getting into multimedia and you own a SyQuest removable, this deal is hard to pass up. You can try your hands at multimedia without the large investment of camcorder, hard drives, software, etc. The software alone is worth the price of a hard drive, but you can own it for the price of a cartridge! For more info, contact your local SyQuest dealer or call SyQuest at 800/245-CART.
