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.)

Emailer 2.0 Available

Send Article to a Friend

Emailer 2.0 Available -- Last week, Claris released Emailer 2.0, sporting a revamped interface and a handful of new landmark features. The most important change is that Emailer now stores messages in database form (rather than as separate files) which greatly reduces disk space overhead in comparison to storing messages as individual files. Emailer's Mail Actions are more robust and offer extended filtering options, and Emailer now supports hierarchical File Cabinet folders. If you upgrade from an earlier version, ensure that your existing mail converts properly by reading the installation instructions carefully. Claris has posted a 4 MB trial version of Emailer 2.0.
