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.

Chinese Mailing List Available -- Thanks to renewed efforts on the part of our Chinese translation team, a separate mailing list is now available for people who want to receive TidBITS via email in Chinese, using the Big-5 character encoding standard. To subscribe, send email to <tidbits-b5-on@tidbits.com>, and please tell friends who might like reading TidBITS in Chinese. (Chinese versions of TidBITS are also available via the Web.) As always, our thanks to the Chinese translation team along with all the polyglot folks who translate TidBITS into other languages for their outstanding work and for making TidBITS available to a much wider audience.
