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.

Apple Releases iSync 1.3 -- Hot on the heels of iSync 1.2.1's debut earlier this month, Apple has released iSync 1.3 for Mac OS X 10.2.5 and higher, adding the capability to synchronize data with new phones such as the Bluetooth-enabled Sony Ericsson P900 and T630, as well as the Nokia 3650 and N-Gage smart phones. The 5.5 MB update is available via Software Update or Apple's iSync Web page. Palm OS handheld device users must install the iSync 1.2 Palm Conduit separately (which hasn't changed since the release of iSync 1.21). It's an 892K download available via a link on the iSync download page. [GD]
