Viewing Wi-Fi Details in Snow Leopard

In Snow Leopard, hold down the Option key before clicking the AirPort menu. Doing so reveals additional technical details including which standards, speeds, and frequencies you're using to connect, as well as what's in use by other networks. With the Option key held down and with a network already joined, the AirPort menu reveals seven pieces of information: the PHY Mode, the MAC (Media Access Control) address, the channel and band in use, the security method that's in use, the RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indication) measurement, the transmit rate, and the MCS Index. In Leopard, some, but not all, of these details are revealed by Option-clicking the AirPort menu.

Apple Announces $233 Million Profit and 2-for-1 Split -- Last week, Apple Computer announced a $233 million profit for its second fiscal quarter of the year. Although the results contain a $73 million gain from continued sales of ARM Holdings, plc., revenues for the quarter were up 27 percent from the same quarter last year, and gross margins were up to 28.2 percent. Apple moved over one million units, and international sales continued to account for just over half of Apple's total revenue. In addition, Apple's Board of Directors has approved a two-for-one split of Apple's common stock, effective 21-Jun-00. Apple's stock has been over $100 per share for most of the calendar year 2000; Apple's last stock split was in 1987. [GD]
