View Extra Bluetooth Details in Snow Leopard

In Snow Leopard, Option-click the Bluetooth icon in the menu bar to view a few additional items in the Bluetooth menu. Specifically, it enables you to open three utility applications: Bluetooth Explorer, Bluetooth Diagnostic Utility, and PacketLogger. These are likely of interest primarily to experts, but if you're having troubles with Bluetooth, the Bluetooth Diagnostic Utility in particular may be useful. (These tools are available only if you've installed Apple's Developer Tools.)

DealBITS Drawing: Bare Bones Software

Send Article to a Friend

There are few classes of software that inspire more loyalty than text editors and email programs, and TidBITS sponsor Bare Bones Software has long provided favorites in both fields. BBEdit 7.1 remains the text editor of choice for programmers and HTML coders everywhere, and Mailsmith 2.0.2 has garnered a vocal following among those email aficionados who want powerful filters and unparalleled text processing power. And TextWrangler 1.5, Bare Bones Software's newest program, has become popular with people for whom BBEdit is either too expensive or too feature-rich.
