>> Brian Tong: Hey guys. Brian Tong here with CNET.com, and we know Snow Leopard is packed with improvements, and here's one that you'll actually use. The menu bar icons now have additional functionality in Apple's latest OS. All you have to do is hold the option key on your keyboard and click on them with your mouse at the same time to access them. When you click on the sound icon, you normally have a volume slider, but with the help of the option key, you can now change your input or output settings directly from your, without jumping into the system preferences. Option click on the battery, and it will give you a status update on the condition of your battery. Option click on the WiFi icon, and it will tell you if you're connected to an 80211B, G, or N network, the level of security on that network, and more. And if you use Apple's MobileMe syncing service, option clicking will show you when and which items were last synched by date, and you can jump into the sync preferences directly from here. I'm Brian Tong with CNET.com with the hidden menu bar functionality in Snow Leopard. Use it wisely.
