Show Recent Items in Snow Leopard

The Recent Items submenu in the Apple menu is handy, but what if you want to work with a file in there in the Finder, rather than open it? Just press Command when that menu is showing, and all the Applications and Documents change to "Show ... in Finder." This feature is new as of Mac OS X 10.6.3 Snow Leopard.

Security Update 2003-03-03

Send Article to a Friend

Security Update 2003-03-03 -- In an effort to stay up to date with security improvements on the Unix front, Apple has also released Security Update 2003-03-03, which provides a new version of sendmail that closes a hole which could allow a cracker access to the system. It wasn't a serious problem for most Mac users, since sendmail is off by default. Also updated was OpenSSL, the new version of which provides improved data confidentiality. Since the sendmail problem affects Mac OS X 10.1.5 as well as 10.2.4, there's a variant of the update for those Mac OS X users who haven't updated to Jaguar. The Jaguar version of the update is a 1.7 MB download; the 10.1.5 version is a 705K download. [ACE]
