Find Which Applications Phone Home with VirusBarrier X6

Worried about rogue applications or spyware "phoning home" with your private data? Turn on VirusBarrier's Anti-Spyware feature, and it will alert you to applications that attempt to connect to remote servers. Once you know which apps are phoning home, you can block or allow each individually, and you can even block or allow specific ports for each application, to ensure that your private data stays private.

New Snapz Pro X 1.0.9 Works Better with Panther

New Snapz Pro X 1.0.9 Works Better with Panther -- Ambrosia Software has released Snapz Pro X 1.0.9, improving compatibility with Panther (version 1.0.8 wasn't working for me at all), and fixing a couple of bugs. Ambrosia also removed the Internet version checking feature for unspecified reasons. Snapz Pro X 1.0.9 is a free update for registered users; it's a 4.4 MB download. Note that if you received Snapz Pro X for free with your Macintosh, the update is not free, presumably since Apple didn't license future versions of Snapz Pro X. However, Ambrosia offers a discounted price of $20 (normally $50) for such people; use the second link below. [ACE]
