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.)

No TidBITS Issue on 26-Nov-07

Send Article to a Friend

As is our custom this time of year, we won't be publishing next week's emailed issue of TidBITS on 26-Nov-07 due to the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States. And, honestly, we need a little rest after the recent release of Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, the five "Take Control of... Leopard" titles that arrived the same day Leopard shipped, Jeff Carlson's book "iMovie '08 and iDVD '08 for Mac OS X: Visual QuickStart Guide" (hitting stores in December), Adam's book "iPhoto '08 for Mac OS X: Visual QuickStart Guide" (arriving in time for Macworld Expo in January 2008), and the various projects the other members of the staff are currently juggling.

However, we're creatures of habit, so don't be surprised if we continue to post articles or updates to the TidBITS Web site or to our staff blogs. Check back at the site or subscribe to the TidBITS RSS feed or Twitter stream to keep up with everything we're writing.
