The Recent Items submenu in the Apple menu is handy, but what if you want to work with a file in there in the Finder, rather than open it? Just press Command when that menu is showing, and all the Applications and Documents change to "Show ... in Finder." This feature is new as of Mac OS X 10.6.3 Snow Leopard.

Apple Drops Prices on Power Mac G3 Systems

Apple Drops Prices on Power Mac G3 Systems -- The Power Macintosh G3 desktop computers, described in "Three New Macs and a PowerBook" in TidBITS-404, have proven to be one of Apple's best-selling product lines; last week, Apple reduced their prices, which historically indicates that new, faster units will be introduced in the next several weeks. The low-end G3 desktop - with a 233 MHz PowerPC G3 processor, 512K of Level 2 backside cache, 32 MB RAM, 4 GB hard disk, and 24x CD-ROM drive - is now $1,699 (a $300 reduction), and some higher-end models have been reduced by as much as $500. Apple also announced price cuts from $150 to $200 on AppleVision displays, although prices for PowerBook G3 models were not changed. The price reduction not mentioned in Apple's announcement involves the 20th Anniversary Macintosh, which debuted last summer with a $7,500 price tag (see "The 20th Anniversary Mac Comes for Tea" in TidBITS-387). The sleek, limited edition units with outstanding Bose audio systems are now available from Apple for a scant $2,000 (and possibly for even less from other sources), although the new price presumably doesn't include delivery and concierge services. At the new price, the 20th Anniversary Macs are almost designer computers for the rest of us. [JLC]
