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.

Best Giveaway: Video Toaster Tape

Send Article to a Friend

NewTek carries this award with their Video Toaster demo videotape, which is about ten minutes of snazzy effects and animations, all done with the Video Toaster. The Toaster grows more and more impressive, and as I see it each year, I keep lusting after one until I realize that I will never do video production. It's just not a hobby I'm likely to get into in my copious spare time. I'll depend on others for my Video Toast. (Quick quiz: Which makes darker toast, a Video Toaster or a Flying Toaster?)
