    In response to the Snow Leopard feature ‘Minimize windows into application icon’ you can see which windows are minimized by using regular Expose. Observe the Expose display in Snow Leopard when you have minimized windows. There is a thin horizontal line across the screen and minimized windows will be arranged below that line. Maximized windows will be arranged above the line.

    This is actually pretty cool and I now use this feature all the time and it keeps the dock from growing too long. I also drag the Expose icon in the Application folder to the dock as another method to bring up Expose rather than using a function key, mouse button, or screen corner.

    I have a couple of questions related to the content of the show.

    I had heard that there were compatibility problems between Snow Leopard and Adobe CS3? is that just a bad rumor?

    Having been forever intrigued by maps and mapping software, I was very interested in the reports of GPS software for my iPod Touch. I did some research on line reagrding the Orange Gadgets software and found they have a plugin GPS receiver module, which is very intriguing, but the FAQ says that it requires “jailbreaking” my iPod. Is that a bad thing to consider doing?

    I agree with John G’s. assessment regarding minimized windows & Expose.
    In expose I’ve set hot corner. For those of us who are more mouse-centric than keyboard shortcut-centric it makes for a smooth flowing workflow when quickly searching a cluttered virtual desk for something.

    Thanx Adam
