Free Macworld Expo Passes -- It's time to start thinking about January's Macworld Expo in San Francisco! Fortunately, our friends at Peachpit Press are again offering free passes to the upcoming show. To request a pair of passes (which are exhibit-only passes, normally $40 each), send an email message to <firstname.lastname@example.org> with your name and postal address. The passes are available on a first-come, first-serve basis, and Peachpit must receive all requests by 03-Jan-05. If you end up with the passes, be sure to stop by the Peachpit booth to thank them, check out their books, and chat with your favorite authors like Adam Engst and Jeff Carlson. [JLC]
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.
