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.

Aladdin Stuffs In More Features -- Aladdin has begun shipping StuffIt Deluxe 4.5, the more-powerful, commercial version of Aladdin's suite of non-commercial compression software that offers extensive file compression and encoding features. Improvements include: speedier operations, Mac OS 8 compatibility (especially for StuffIt's True Finder Integration technology), contextual menu support, and expansion of encrypted Zip files. To run the software, you need a Macintosh with 4 MB RAM running System 7.1.1 or newer. StuffIt Deluxe has a suggested retail price of $129; those who purchased version 4.0 after 26-Jul-97 can upgrade for a $9.95 shipping fee, and anyone who owns a previous version can upgrade for $29.95 plus tax and shipping. For international customers, the shipping cost increases to $19.95. Discounted upgrades are available only through 31-Dec-97. [TJE]
