iPod Updater 2005-03-23 Released -- Apple last week released an update for iPod photo owners. The hefty 28.9 MB iPod Updater 2005-03-23 brings the iPod software to version 1.1 and adds support for Apple's forthcoming $30 iPod Camera Connector (announced in February, and now available for order from Apple's online store). It also improves slideshow transitions. The updater is available via Software Update or as a separate download. Although this update offers nothing new for owners of other iPod product lines, it does include the most recent software versions for each model (hence the huge download). [JLC]
Set Password Activation Time in Snow Leopard
In Snow Leopard, you can now set an amount of time after your Mac goes to sleep or engages the screen saver before it requires a password to log back on. In Leopard, the option was simply to require the password or not. Choose among several increments, between 5 seconds and 4 hours, from System Preferences > Security.
