New Documents in Snow Leopard's TextEdit

In the Snow Leopard version of TextEdit, you can now create a new document by Control-clicking TextEdit's Dock icon (when it's running), and choosing New Document from the pop-up menu. This isn't a major feature, of course, since you can also just press Command-N while in TextEdit, but consider Control-clicking other applications' Dock icons to see what functions they might make available.

More RAM for IIf and IIg

Send Article to a Friend

More RAM for IIf and IIg -- In TidBITS-108/24-Feb-92 we reported a rumor that the LaserWriter IIf and IIg were likely to be upgraded with extra RAM, and indeed, that has happened. We hoped that Apple US would follow the lead of Apple UK and offer free upgrades for people who already bought one of the printers. This has not happened, and users who wish to add an additional 4 MB of RAM to the either of the printers will have to buy a 4 MB upgrade kit, which lists for $249. Oh well, if you heeded our advice and waited, you can now get a IIf with 4 MB for $3599 list or a IIg with 8 MB for $4599 list, instead of the previous 2 MB and 5 MB incarnations.
