Griffin PowerMate Receives Software Update -- If you were one of the many people who went home from Macworld Expo with one of Griffin Technology's cool PowerMate USB controllers (the brushed aluminum "knob and button"), head over to Griffin's Web site for updated drivers for both Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X. Both include a variety of bug fixes, and the Mac OS X version now enables users to control the glowing base (brightness control, pulsing, and pulse rate) via AppleScript. [ACE]
