    There is one case in which the recovered files in the trash are important. I save all my chats with iChat automatically (preference in iChat). I switched to Tiger recently, and these ‘recovered files’ popped up in my trash, containing the full size photographs people had sent to me using iChat. It turned out that in the saved iChat file only the reduced (thumbed) photographs were saved, not the full ones. I’m extremely annoyed about this, the reason I save my chats is just to safeguard those files that are sent to me. But now I have to look in the trash each time I reboot to fish out these files I don’t want to lose. iChat doesn’t crash, it just thinks the thumbnails are good enough; well, I don’t!

    Adam, let’s create a fund for you to get an iPhone. I want to hear your first hand thoughts! I’m sure I’m not the only listener who will kick in for a Christianson iPhone.

    Hey Adam,

    Another great show, I want to comment on the many apologies you express because of talking about the iPhone. I know it can be annoying, my feed reader has 8 out of 10 iPhone related news and trust me it is annoying. However, this show is about all things Macintosh and I don’t think you should apologize so much because of talking about the iPhone.

    As I said, great show, keep it up.
