Oops. A couple of people wrote in to correct our mistake about the type of tape backup cartridge available for the Apple Tape Backup 40SC. Mark accidentally wrote that it takes DC600 tapes, when in fact it uses the DC2000 size instead. Sorry about that.
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.
