View Extra Bluetooth Details in Snow Leopard

In Snow Leopard, Option-click the Bluetooth icon in the menu bar to view a few additional items in the Bluetooth menu. Specifically, it enables you to open three utility applications: Bluetooth Explorer, Bluetooth Diagnostic Utility, and PacketLogger. These are likely of interest primarily to experts, but if you're having troubles with Bluetooth, the Bluetooth Diagnostic Utility in particular may be useful. (These tools are available only if you've installed Apple's Developer Tools.)

Zebra's Works

Send Article to a Friend

TML Systems is developing a set of seven software modules that, when completed, will challenge Microsoft Works 2.0. Collectively called Zebra, the modules share tools with each other so appropriate tools are available in any module (i.e. the same text tools appear in most modules, giving you access to spell checking and style sheets even if you are not in the word processing module). All told, the modules include a ones for word processing, charting and graphing, drawing, painting, telecommunicating, managing databases, and using spreadsheets. Live links such as those promised for all software under Apple's System 7 allow flexible data manipulation. Zebra and Works will list for the same price - $295.
