Leopard remembers your volume settings, nice!

I just noticed this morning that Mac OS X Leopard remembers your volume settings depending on whether you are using the headphone jack or the in-built speakers.

Earlier I was listening to music at a low volume on my MacBook Pro’s in-built speakers, then when I took it through to my desk and plugged my speaker cable in I almost blew my speakers.. and ear drums. Woops.

Its the undocumented or not as often publicised things like this that make Leopard the best operating system around, even if it takes moments like this to realise it!

Not only Leopard – Tiger also (I use MacBook).

Yes, I thought this was really cool too. Ironically I didn’t notice until I was running Windows Vista and it noted in a balloon that I had plugged in my headphones!

I found out yesterday that you can move between spaces by using two finger gestures. Kinda cool, shame I don’t use spaces!

Didn’t know you could use gestures with spaces either.

I also don’t use it though, not only do I get confused as to which space an app is in it makes me dizzy!
