Apple Telecom 3.0... Maybe -- A common question we receive at TidBITS is "When is Apple going to release the 28.8 Kbps version of the GeoPort software?" We've been just as confused about this software as everyone else, but lately some consensus is emerging among public and private sources. After numerous promised release dates, demos at Macworld Boston, and abortive appearances on Australian and Swedish servers a few weeks ago, it appears that Apple will generally release Telecom 3.0 in late October.[GD]
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.
