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.)

Keyboard Construction Kit

Datadesk introduced the Switchboard, a new extended keyboard with a twistit has several modules which can be moved around and swapped in and out of the basic keyboard case. So far Datadesk has a trackball module, a function key module that fits on either side of the main keys, and a macro key module that goes above the fifteen horizontal function keys. In addition from the Switchboard's chameleon abilities, it can hook to every Macintosh, including the Plus as well as all IBM-clones. That's flexible!
