MouseWorks for Mac OS X 2.0 Released -- Kensington has posted the latest version of its software for controlling Kensington mice and trackballs under Mac OS X. MouseWorks for Mac OS X 2.0 is now a preference pane instead of a stand-alone application and can maintain different settings for specific applications. You can now also assign keystrokes to any button action, as well as program the Turbo Mouse Pro's DirectLaunch buttons to perform any MouseWorks action. The update is free and is a 2 MB download.

New Documents in Snow Leopard's TextEdit
In the Snow Leopard version of TextEdit, you can now create a new document by Control-clicking TextEdit's Dock icon (when it's running), and choosing New Document from the pop-up menu. This isn't a major feature, of course, since you can also just press Command-N while in TextEdit, but consider Control-clicking other applications' Dock icons to see what functions they might make available.
