View Extra Bluetooth Details in Snow Leopard

In Snow Leopard, Option-click the Bluetooth icon in the menu bar to view a few additional items in the Bluetooth menu. Specifically, it enables you to open three utility applications: Bluetooth Explorer, Bluetooth Diagnostic Utility, and PacketLogger. These are likely of interest primarily to experts, but if you're having troubles with Bluetooth, the Bluetooth Diagnostic Utility in particular may be useful. (These tools are available only if you've installed Apple's Developer Tools.)

Poll Preview: Finder's Clickers -- Polls are easy - you can just register your opinion and be on your way. No one's getting off that easy with this week's quiz, which requires you to think a bit. Here's the question:

Starting from the desktop with no open windows and using only actions initiated with the mouse, what is the minimum number of clicks needed to both view the contents of the Startup Items folder and make an alias of it on the desktop? (This requires a version of the Mac OS released since late 1998.)

As always, for those people who take the quiz, the results page will explain just how you can come by the correct answer, and I'll bet that most people will learn something in the process. Give the quiz your best shot on our home page! [ACE]
