Virtual Game Station 1.1 Released Despite Lawsuit -- Connectix Corporation has shipped Virtual Game Station 1.1, an update to the company's Sony PlayStation emulator, introduced at Macworld Expo in San Francisco. Few details were available regarding the changes in version 1.1, although Connectix did say that they've "enhanced compatibility and functionality," plus added additional security technology to prevent use of pirated PlayStation games. Most likely because of a lawsuit brought by Sony, it's been impossible to purchase the $49 Virtual Game Station other than at the show, but Connectix's online store expects availability by 06-Feb-99. Those who managed to purchase Virtual Game Station 1.0 at Macworld Expo can download a free 828K updater. [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.
