Since the early days of the Mac OS, most users have avoided the Services menu, largely because of what used to be found there: a bewildering, ever-growing mess of options, submenus, and shortcuts. But with Snow Leopard, the Services menu got a major revamp, making it contextual to the application you’re using, as well as configurable. Once you know how to take advantage of its useful actions, you’ll save yourself lots of time.
Last week MobileMe underwent a complete redesign. With only 2-hours notice, members didn’t really know what to expect other than the service was just going down for regular maintenance. But when MobileMe came back online, it had a completely redesigned user interface that’s fresh and inviting, and a few new features were thrown in as well.
