Monitor Toast's burn progress in the dock Apps
Can't believe I've been using Toast all this time and have not noticed this. With a burn going in Toast (I saw this in the 5 Lite version), you get a progress bar as part of the dock icon. It doesn't give you time left (hint to Roxio), but it does give the OS X progress bar. At least instead of unhiding the app all the time, you can get an idea as to how much longer you have wait by looking in the dock.

This works with PhotoShop

The same is true of PhotoShop when saving a large file or (I think) applying a filter that takes a long time. Great when you want to multi task, but want to hide the program.

Monitor Toast's burn progress in the dock

Why this isn't also true of Apple's own Disk Utility is beyond me. I mean, didn't they include update-in-the-dock APIs for a reason? It would be nice to see Apple make use of them. While watching QT movies in the dock made a great demo, the abilty to monitor long processes from a dock icon is actually useful--but only third party apps, like Roxio and Adobe--have done anything with it. Why?
