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.

VST Drives Zip Extension to 1.1

VST Drives Zip Extension to 1.1 -- VST Technologies made its Zip100 Driver version 1.1 available, which adds Mac OS 8.1 compatibility and fixes annoying performance delays for users of VST's internal PowerBook Zip drives. Kudos goes out to VST's tech support group, who sent the updated extension via email to users that had contacted VST about the problems. The driver is a 35K download from VST's revamped Web site.
