    sadly nothing is fixed with this update. when changing the graphics card to “high performance” an external apple 30″ monitor display is not even recognised. when changing back to “better battery life” the display is recognized sometimes but only renders highly distorted images. tested with two current macbook pros 15″ 2.8ghz and two different mini display port to dual link dvi adapters on two different 30″ apple cinema displays. apple should recall this adapters!

    Hey Adam,

    Your tip about forcing text in an iWeb site to be made an image is also great for email addresses, to keep spammers from getting them, the way Facebook does.

    Great tip from Chris Breen on bulk changing email clients in Address Book. I was wondering if there’s a tip on how to add bulk NOTES, such as “Hoiiday Card” so that you could effectively “tag” numerous contacts in your Address Book. Thanks!

    Hey Adam,

    Although it is correct in the OmniOutliner Shownotes, i think you link to the wrong Web site for the new music in the abbreviated notes above. Just an FYI.

    Hi Adam
    I think that THINGS is too expensive for the service it provides that furthermore can be simulated also quite elegantly with a good outliner. In my case I can make a easy and at same powerful GTD like system with MORI implementing a couple of smart folders that check my list of tasks retrieving and organizing them as TODAY, NEXT, CRITICAL (not done yet) or SOMEDAY.
    It works and is less expensive considering that MORI can be used for many other situations and applications.
