Cached Leopard Mail images: friend or foe? (TUAW.com)

Nov 7th 2007 9:17PM I'm seeing the same thing, but the images are attachments...not HTML based images. I'm not seeing the images initially because those emails are going straight to my Spam box, and not my Inbox. So, an "All Images" search may bring up some interesting results in this scenario, but only because I haven't seen the images before. When the Spam is deleted, those images will obviously go away.

iPhone AutoSync (TUAW.com)

Sep 18th 2007 11:35PM Brian, I think the method I described may solve your problem as iTunes, to my knowledge, isn't involved in the sync of Address Book and iCal when iSync is used. Granted, my solution is manual, unlike the automated solution provided by "iPhone AutoSync," but mine is free!

iPhone AutoSync (TUAW.com)

Sep 18th 2007 10:55PM Perhaps I'm wrong, but I believe the following statement from the article is totally incorrect: "The application was prompted by the fact that your iPhone's contact and calendar are only updated when you sync it with iTunes." I have iSync enabled as a menu bar option. I plug in my iPhone via USB and initiate a sync from the menu bar iSync icon. This performs a sync of Address Book and iCal changes. I rarely launch iTunes to perform a sync unless I need to move over video/music. Simply put, iTunes isn't the only thing that can sync up Address Book and iCal changes...iSync handles it just fine.

Airport Extreme 802.11n Enabler for Mac (TUAW.com)

Jan 30th 2007 12:21PM Tried to run the enabler on my 1 month old MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo 2.16ghz and the installer said "You cannot install AirPort Extreme 802.11n Enabler on this volume. This volume does not meet the requirements for this update." I checked my airport card via the Network Utility and it shows a/b/g so "n" wasn't pre-enabled from the factory. My Macbook Pro should support the update. Any suggestions on what the issue could be?

Three-pane Mail.app turns into a plug-in (TUAW.com)

Jun 2nd 2006 2:18PM Gave it a try. Kept it installed for about 5 min. I didn't like it. It caused (what I consider) valuable info to be abbreviated so much, that it was unreadable. I'm talking about the message list preview giving you the subject/from/date received/attachment/reply stuff. That info virtually disappears. I'm sticking with the default view.

By the way, I had no crash issues or uninstallation problems. I just dragged the bundle out of the Mail Bundles folder.

Mail slowing you down? Rebuild its database (TUAW.com)

Apr 12th 2006 12:48PM Did this tip and it saved some space. I did have one crazy side effect (as another post mentioned) and this is some of my message are now highlighted in dark brown. Any ideas what that means (it's not the same highlight color as 'similar messages")?

Script to start iSync, sync devices, then quit (TUAW.com)

Mar 22nd 2006 5:07PM Berko...any chance you could post your script on your site?

Linotype FontExplorer X is out of beta (TUAW.com)

Mar 16th 2006 2:48PM The latest update for this program adds WYSIWYG font previews in its interface. This is a huge piece of functionality that's been included. I've yet to have it fail on me. It activates fonts on command as needed. I was a Suitcase user before and must agree Linotype has created a very elegant "iTunes like" solution for managing and buying fonts. I fail to see a single negative about FontExplorer X...how many programs can you say that about!?
