Avoid Simple Typos

If, like me, you find yourself typing 2911 in place of 2011 entirely too often, you can have Mac OS X (either Lion or Snow Leopard) fix such typos for you automatically. Just open the Language & Text pane of System Preferences, click the Text button at the top, and then add a text substitution by clicking the + button underneath the list. It won't work everywhere (for that you'll want a utility like Smile's TextExpander), but it should work in applications like Pages and TextEdit, and in Save dialog boxes.

Final Cut Studio Updates Available -- Apple's professional line of video editing applications saw updates last week to fix bugs and improve performance. Final Cut Pro 5.0.2, DVD Studio Pro 4.0.1, and Soundtrack Pro 1.0.1 are each available as separate downloads. If you own the entire Final Cut Studio (which also includes Motion 2), you can download a 46 MB updater that applies the fixes to each affected program. [JLC]
