Set Time Zone Automatically in Snow Leopard

Frequent travelers may be interested to know that in Snow Leopard your time zone can now be set automatically by bringing up the Date & Time preference pane, clicking the Time Zone view, and selecting Set Time Zone Automatically. A progress spinner appears while Snow Leopard sends off information about the Wi-Fi signals in your vicinity and receives location data back.

Poll Preview: Browser Brouhaha -- This week's release of Internet Explorer 5.0 for the Mac (see review below) and Netscape's recent announcement that the Netscape 6 (possibly not for the Mac, to judge from comments on TidBITS Talk) would be available in beta within a month raises that perennial question: Which Macintosh Web browsers do you use on a regular basis? We'll be especially curious to compare the results of this poll to our Web logs. Make sure your usage patterns are represented this week on our home page! [ACE]
