New Documents in Snow Leopard's TextEdit

In the Snow Leopard version of TextEdit, you can now create a new document by Control-clicking TextEdit's Dock icon (when it's running), and choosing New Document from the pop-up menu. This isn't a major feature, of course, since you can also just press Command-N while in TextEdit, but consider Control-clicking other applications' Dock icons to see what functions they might make available.

Google Serving Itself DMCA Takedown Notices on Chrome Videos?

Send Article to a Friend

Update: It's all working now, so take a look at the videos to get a sense of what Chrome can do. -Adam

So I decided that even if Google's new Chrome Web browser is available only for Windows right now, I should take a look through the feature videos to get a feel for what's forthcoming for Mac users.

"One box for everything." Sounds great. -click- "We're sorry, this video is no longer available." Gee, I wonder if Google served itself a DMCA takedown notice on the Tolkien reference.

"New Tab page." I'm in favor of that. -click- "We're sorry, this video is no longer available." Hmm, perhaps Chrome's tabs are a bit too kinky for YouTube.

"Application shortcuts." -click- "We're sorry, this video is no longer available." Grr...

"Dynamic tabs." -click- "We're sorry, this video is no longer available." -click- "We're sorry, this video is no longer available." -click- "We're sorry, this video is no longer available." -click- "We're sorry, this video is no longer available." Oh, never mind.


Maybe I'll try again in a few minutes.
