Enabling Auto Spelling Correction in Snow Leopard

In Snow Leopard, the automatic spelling correction in applications is not usually activated by default. To turn it on, make sure the cursor's insertion point is somewhere where text can be entered, and either choose Edit > Spelling and Grammar > Correct Spelling Automatically or, if the Edit menu's submenu doesn't have what you need, Control-click where you're typing and choose Spelling and Grammar > Correct Spelling Automatically from the contextual menu that appears. The latter approach is particularly likely to be necessary in Safari and other WebKit-based applications, like Mailplane.

We'll Take the Fifth! Congratulations to TidBITS publisher Adam Engst for his fifth place ranking in the MacDirectory "Most Influential Figure in the Mac Industry" poll of nearly 200 MacDirectory readers. As in last month's MDJ Power 25 poll, Apple iCEO Steve Jobs took first place by a wide margin, but this time, Microsoft chairman Bill Gates was second, followed by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and the inimitable Guy Kawasaki (currently the CEO of Garage.com).
