    Baca2 di maclife dpt artikel kek ginian gan...kyknya cukup menarik ni...silaken

    http://www.maclife.com/article/featu...s_and_features

    berhubung dah di sticky, ane copas aja d kemari semua, biar suatu saat artikelnya dah ilang, masih bisa dibaca di mari.

    Battery Status
    If you've secretly suspected that your MacBook's battery isn't working correctly, Snow Leopard can tell you what your geek senses have know all along. In the menu bar you can check the status of your battery, and hopefully you won't see "Service Battery."


    QuickTime X video record
    Need to record a quick video with your iSight or USB camera? You can record directly from your iSight camera in QuickTime X. If you're lucky enough to have a higher-quality camera, you can not only choose the camera and audio source directly from the QuickTime X window, but also decide where the video will be saved.


    Language and texts
    In the System Preferences, choose Language & Text. A new tab called Texts has a Symbol And Text Substitution feature. Type ( c ) and you get © among other commonly used symbols. Make your own shortcuts! Of course, the app in question has to support it, but in general, you can do things like type “awesome” to substitute your name, “address^^” to substitute your address, and so on.


    Time is relative
    Automatically set the time zone you happen to be in. Navigate to the Date And Time preference in System Preferences and check off "Set time zone automatically using current location." Perfect for travelers.


    QuickTime 7 isn't dead yet
    QuickTime X is great. It gives users most of the QuickTime Pro features for free. But for die-hard QuickTime users that need more than a few screencasts and minimal export control, you can install QuickTime 7 from the Snow Leopard disc. Check the Optional Installs folder. Open the Optional Installs, and there's QuickTime 7 ready to be installed. Snow Leopard will find your previous QuickTime 7 preferences, and adds your registration number to the QuickTime 7 preferences.

    Draw Chinese characters on the trackpad

    If you happen to write Chinese and want to communicate with your business partners in China, you won’t have to buy a Chinese keyboard anymore. Snow Leopard’s revamped Language And Text preference pane has revamped the Chinese character input completely. You can draw the actual characters on your trackpad, and it recognizes the characters as you type.

                      No Leopard, no problem
                      If you're running Tiger on your machine, don't worry. You can install Snow Leopard without having Leopard installed on your Mac first. Apple would like you to purchase the $169 Mac Box Set, but you don't actually need to. You just saved a ton of money!


                      OpenCL hungers for graphics cards
                      We've been told by Apple that OpenCL-enhanced applications will scream with compatible video cards. What happens if you cram your Mac Pro with multiple video cards? We asked Apple, and they said if an application is built to support OpenCL and the video cards are supported, the application will indeed get a speed boost.


                      Start up in 64-bit
                      If you want to make the kernel start up in 64-bit, hold the 6 and 4 keys on the keyboard at startup. Though applications can still run in 64-bit while the OS is 32-bit, starting up in 64-bit will be marginally faster. Be wary of losing application support, though.


                      32-bit kernel vs. 64-bit kernel
                      Is running a 64-bit kernel really that great? We talked to Apple about this, and they told us that what you're doing when you hold down the 6 and 4 buttons during startup is actually booting the kernel into 64-bit mode. For 99.999% of users out there, booting up as usual with the 32-bit kernel is more than adequate. Your 64-bit applications, including the Finder, will still run super quick while the kernel is in 32-bit mode. There is no difference in the speed of 64-bit applications while your kernel is in 32-bit mode. 64-bit mode is useful only to hardcore users and servers.

                          But I just bought a Mac!
                          Don't worry if you bought a Mac on, or after, June 8. Apple's Up-to-Date program means you can get Snow Leopard for $10. Hurry though, you have until December 26, 2009. Which'll be here before you know it.


                          Import from a scanner directly into Preview
                          You can now import directly from a scanner into Preview. You can even choose network scanners. Just go to File > Import From Scanner.


                          Screenshot names are time stamped
                          No more Picture 1, Picture 2, Picture 3 screenshot files on your Desktop. Snow Leopard now uses a time stamp to name your files.


                          Sync Address Book with Google and Yahoo
                          If you're sporting a Google or Yahoo account, you can now easily sync the Address Book with these accounts. Navigate to Address Book > Preferences, click the Accounts tab, and there you go.


                          Rosetta isn't there by default
                          In Leopard, Rosetta is there when you need it. In Snow Leopard, the first time you try to install, or launch, a PowerPC app, you'll get a prompt to install Rosetta. Software Upload will launch and install Rosetta for you.

                            Minimize windows into an application's Dock icon
                            In Leopard when you minimized a window, it flew to the right of the divider in the Dock. You can now have those minimized windows swoop down behind the app's icon in the Dock. You won't be able to see how many windows you'll have minimized at a glance, but with Dock Exposť, a thin line separates the regular windows from the minimized windows.

                            To switch to this mode, navigate to System Preferences > Dock and check "Minimize windows into application icon."


                            Where's Clean Install?
                            In order to clear up any confusion, Apple removed the "Clean Install" option from the Snow Leopard installer. Apparently, some folks didn't realize that a clean install erases the drive before installing. If you want to erase your intended drive before installation, click the Utilities button at the beginning of your install to use Disk Utility. After clicking Utilities, you'll be prompted to restart your Mac. After restart, navigate to the menubar Utilities > Disk Utility.
                            Sure, it's an extra step for you, but if it keeps your less-than-tech-savvy uncle from erasing all of his data while trying to install Snow Leopard, it's probably worth it.


                            Will my scanner and or printer work?
                            Apple has posted a list of scanners and printers that will work with Snow Leopard. If in doubt, check it out. Apparently, Puppet Walt had an issue with his scanner. The poor old guy.


                            Cisco VPN support
                            If you work from the road, or from home, you know how important Cisco VPN is. Snow Leopard has it baked right into the OS. To set up your VPN (you should check with your IT department) navigate to System Preferences > Network. Click on the small plus sign (+) in the lower-left corner. Choose VPN in the Select Interface drop-down. This is much better than opening a third-party application to get on the office server from home.

                              Palm OS syncing gone
                              Uh-oh, if you're the owner of a device that runs the Palm OS (Treo, Centro, etc.), we have some bad news for you. Snow Leopard no longer supports Palm OS syncing, and since Palm has retired the OS, there's a good chance they won't be updating their software. Fortunately, you can grab a copy of The Missing Sync for Palm OS from Mark/Space. Good luck.


                              Dock Exposť
                              This was the “ooh, ah” feature of the Snow Leopard demonstration at WWDC. Apple has taken steps to make sure Exposť is more awesome than ever before. One of the biggest improvements is that you only have to click and hold an icon in the Dock to trigger Exposť for all of that application's windows, instead of having to use a keyboard shortcut. This can be especially useful if you’re trying to quickly sort through all your Finder, Web browser, or word processing windows.


                              Option-click in the Dock to force-quit
                              Holding down Option while clicking an app in the Dock has been a quick way to force quit an offending app. Force-quit is available when you right-click an app in the Dock or click and hold for Dock Exposť. You're also presented with Hide Others, a good way to hide all the apps except the one you have selected.


                              Share your videos, get the URL right in the progress window
                              If you opt to share your videos from QuickTime X, you'll be presented with a progress window that uploads your video. Once the video is done, the progress window will display the URL for the video you've uploaded. This works with both MobileMe and YouTube.


                              Nested Stacks
                              Stacks in Leopard wasn't exactly a fan favorite. The worst part was that it didn't work with certain folders. Though it was meant to reduce the number of clicks and windows you had to go through before getting to your file, if your folder had a number of subfolders, you would really only save one click. In Snow Leopard, if you click another folder within Stacks, it opens that folder within Stacks as well, with convenient back and forward buttons to jump through the folder hierarchy.
