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.

Word 5.0 Addendum

Send Article to a Friend

Word 5.0 Addendum -- Dwight K. Lemke writes, "An addendum to your report on Word 5.0: I was informed by Niles & Associates that the latest version of EndNote Plus includes a Word 5.0 command application so that it can be accessed from the Insert menu. Expect to see it in mid-February."

[Adam: I'm glad to see people using the plug-in capabilities of Word 5.0, but I would have been more impressed if they could be easily turned on and off without quitting the program and moving the files around.]
