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.)

While we're waiting for the Web Crossing programmers to figure out how to let us eliminate HTML formatting from messages in TidBITS Talk, note that some of the messages in our existing archive are a bit more difficult to read because of the HTML tags. You may wish instead to read these threads in Web Crossing itself, where the HTML formatting is handled behind the scenes. You can see all the TidBITS Talk threads at the link below; the second link below each thread description takes you directly to that thread in Web Crossing. Although we've put absolutely no effort into making the Web Crossing archive look the way we want yet (so no snarky comments, please), you'll find that it's a lot faster than our old archive.
