View Extra Audio Details in Snow Leopard

In Snow Leopard, Option-clicking the Volume icon in the menu bar displays a list of sound input and output devices. Choose one to switch to it; it's much easier than using the Sound preference pane. Also, hold Shift and click the icon to set the system volume, which is separate from the general output volume.

Security Update 2004-09-16 Fixes iChat Vulnerability

Send Article to a Friend

Security Update 2004-09-16 Fixes iChat Vulnerability -- Apple last week released Security Update 2004-09-16 via Software Update and as separate downloads. The update includes a new version of iChat that fixes a potential problem whereby someone could send a link that would launch an application on your Mac. After the update is applied, clicking such a link brings up a dialog that asks you to confirm that you want to run the application. If you don't use Software Update, three separate downloads are available, each about 1 MB in size, depending on the version of Mac OS X and iChat you're running. [JLC]
