Apple Logo Losing Its Colors -- Apple loyalists will no longer be able to claim they "bleed in six colors." According to Time, Apple is peeling away the six rainbow-colored bands from the Apple logo and replacing them with "white or another solid," such as blue for the iMac. Steve Jobs allegedly made the decision about seven months ago with his design, advertising, and marketing executives, saying that the colors echoed color schemes of the 1970s and early 1980s. Likening the Apple logo to Nike's logo, Jobs said, "The shape is our swoosh." [JLC]
Enabling Auto Spelling Correction in Snow Leopard
In Snow Leopard, the automatic spelling correction in applications is not usually activated by default. To turn it on, make sure the cursor's insertion point is somewhere where text can be entered, and either choose Edit > Spelling and Grammar > Correct Spelling Automatically or, if the Edit menu's submenu doesn't have what you need, Control-click where you're typing and choose Spelling and Grammar > Correct Spelling Automatically from the contextual menu that appears. The latter approach is particularly likely to be necessary in Safari and other WebKit-based applications, like Mailplane.
