Palm Desktop 2.6.3 Supports Newest Handhelds -- Palm has released Palm Desktop 2.6.3, a small update that primarily provides compatibility with the latest Palm devices running Palm OS 4.0. The new version updates Palm's HotSync synchronization software to improve data transfers using the m500 series' Universal USB Connector, plus adds the capability to transfer files to an expansion card (see "Palm Announces Thin Color m505" in TidBITS-573). The update also fixes a problem with the Instant Palm Desktop extension. Palm Desktop 2.6.3 is a free update, and is a 6.1 MB download. [JLC]
Show Recent Items in Snow Leopard
The Recent Items submenu in the Apple menu is handy, but what if you want to work with a file in there in the Finder, rather than open it? Just press Command when that menu is showing, and all the Applications and Documents change to "Show ... in Finder." This feature is new as of Mac OS X 10.6.3 Snow Leopard.
