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.)

Apple Posts $40 Million Q2 Profit -- No doubt about it: iMacs rake in the dough. Apple announced a $40 million profit for its second fiscal quarter of 2002, coming in slightly higher than analysts's expectations following component shortages which impeded the roll-out of the new flat-screen iMac. Apple had $1.5 billion in revenue on gross margins of 27 percent; international sales accounted for 45 percent of the company's revenue.

Apple shipped 220,000 iMacs during its second quarter, contributing to a total of 813,000 Macs shipped, up 8 percent from the same quarter a year ago. Apple didn't call out sales of portable systems or the iPod, but did note it has $4.3 billion in cash on hand and plans to open an additional 20 Apple retail stores by the end of the calendar year.
