Show Recent Items in Snow Leopard

The Recent Items submenu in the Apple menu is handy, but what if you want to work with a file in there in the Finder, rather than open it? Just press Command when that menu is showing, and all the Applications and Documents change to "Show ... in Finder." This feature is new as of Mac OS X 10.6.3 Snow Leopard.

Compatibility Checker Comments

Compatibility Checker Comments -- Peter Galko writes, "I found that the Compatibility Checker reported parts of the 7.1 stuff Apple sent me as a beta tester of 7.1 were supposedly incompatible with 7.1! It also reported that there is a newer version of Adobe Illustrator (later than the latest). Apparently Apple used an outside contractor to collect the data, and they made a few mistakes, to say the least."
