View Extra Audio Details in Snow Leopard

In Snow Leopard, Option-clicking the Volume icon in the menu bar displays a list of sound input and output devices. Choose one to switch to it; it's much easier than using the Sound preference pane. Also, hold Shift and click the icon to set the system volume, which is separate from the general output volume.

Lotus Number -- Leon Campbell writes, "I called the 800 number for the $49 upgrade to Lotus 1-2-3 mentioned in TidBITS-157 and the operator said she only knew about the $119 upgrade price. I read her the TidBITS piece and she put me on hold for a couple of minutes and came back with the message that the number I called could not do the $49 upgrade. She gave me another number - 800/343-5414. I called and they took care of the order very nicely.
