New TidBITS Sponsor: Cyberian Outpost -- We're pleased to welcome our latest sponsor, Cyberian Outpost. Founded by Darryl Peck, whose Mac credentials include being president of the New York Macintosh Users Group and founder of Mac developer Inline Design, Cyberian Outpost was an early Internet software and hardware retailer and one of the few that existed solely online. We've worked with Cyberian in the past to provide deals for readers on some of the items we review in TidBITS, and Cyberian has become the place we turn first when we look for a piece of software. For more information about Cyberian, check out the two-part interview we conducted with Darryl Peck in April of 1996. And of course, take a look at their sponsorship text each week for deals on Macintosh products. [ACE]
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.
