View Extra Bluetooth Details in Snow Leopard

In Snow Leopard, Option-click the Bluetooth icon in the menu bar to view a few additional items in the Bluetooth menu. Specifically, it enables you to open three utility applications: Bluetooth Explorer, Bluetooth Diagnostic Utility, and PacketLogger. These are likely of interest primarily to experts, but if you're having troubles with Bluetooth, the Bluetooth Diagnostic Utility in particular may be useful. (These tools are available only if you've installed Apple's Developer Tools.)

"Real World Mac OS X Fonts" Encapsulates Font Ebooks -- Summer disappeared all too quickly for us this year, in part because of a major project we were working on to convert Sharon Zardetto Aker's "Take Control of Fonts in Mac OS X" and "Take Control of Font Problems in Mac OS X" into a print volume. We're pleased to announce that "Real World Mac OS X Fonts" is now available from Peachpit Press (and thus from all your favorite purveyors of print books, though if you buy it from our site, we and Sharon make a few cents more through Amazon's affiliate program). The text in "Real World Mac OS X Fonts" is nearly identical to the contents of the ebooks, with small redundancies between the two ebooks removed and a few minor things updated; we also moved from our Take Control layout to the full-color design of Peachpit's highly regarded Real World series. That's the series that graphics and design professionals turn to for the most detailed information about topics ranging from Photoshop and InDesign to color management and print production. "Real World Mac OS X Fonts" fits in perfectly with the rest of those professional-strength titles, so if you've been thinking about buying the ebooks but would prefer to read on paper, check it out.
