Government Recommends Microsoft Breakup -- In the latest move in the ongoing antitrust action against Microsoft, last Friday the U.S. government proposed breaking Microsoft into two separate companies for ten years. One company would be tightly regulated and focus solely on Windows operating systems, and the other would encompass all other Microsoft businesses, including Office, online ventures, development tools, server software, Web browsers, games, and much more. Microsoft reiterated its intention to defend itself aggressively against any judgment against it. [GD]
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.
