View Extra Audio Details in Snow Leopard

In Snow Leopard, Option-clicking the Volume icon in the menu bar displays a list of sound input and output devices. Choose one to switch to it; it's much easier than using the Sound preference pane. Also, hold Shift and click the icon to set the system volume, which is separate from the general output volume.

Internet Explorer Updates Address Vulnerability

Send Article to a Friend

Internet Explorer Updates Address Vulnerability -- Microsoft has released a pair of Internet Explorer updates aimed at resolving a security vulnerability related to digital certificates - in the right situation, an attacker could use it to enable a number of identity spoofing attacks. The updates - version 5.1.6 for Mac OS 9 and 5.2.2 for Mac OS X - also include all other recent fixes. Microsoft made no release notes available, but it's unlikely that the new versions incorporate any new features. Microsoft didn't even update Internet Explorer's installer in the Mac OS X version, which unnecessarily insists on quitting all active applications. Version 5.1.6 is a 5.4 MB download; version 5.2.2 is a 7.2 MB download. [ACE]
