Fun Way to Send Attachments in Mail

If you're working in a file that you want to attach to a message in Apple Mail, you can transfer the file to Mail easily: From the title bar of the file's window, drag the little proxy icon to Mail's icon on the Dock. Your Mac will make Mail the active application and open a new outgoing message, with the file attached.

(If your icon won't drag, the file probably isn't saved.)

BusyCal 1.2.3 -- BusyMac remains, well, busy, pushing out yet another small bug-fix update to BusyCal, their iCal-replacement calendar program with sharing capabilities. BusyCal 1.2.3 fixes problems with unpublishing calendars from Google Calendar and fixes time zone discrepancies when publishing calendars to Google (but note that Google Calendar still doesn't support "floating" time zones, making it unusable for workgroups dispersed across time zones who are trying to coordinate events at a conference where everyone will be in the same time zone, for instance). Several cosmetic bugs have also been squashed, attachments and to-dos are no longer removed from WebDAV calendars by default, and more. Full release notes are available. ($49, free updates, 5.6 MB)

Phone Amego 1.1.14 -- Sustainable Softworks has updated Phone Amego, the utility that enables you to control a Bluetooth mobile phone (including the iPhone) from a Mac (for more details, see "Phone Amego: the Macintosh/iPhone Mind Meld," 3 September 2009). Version 1.1.14 now supports Growl notifications, improves the Call Window's functionality, and fixes the caller ID display when numbers that are private, unavailable, or all-zeros call in. The update also enables users to place calls remotely from a landline phone that's hooked up to another computer with Phone Amego, adds a German localization, adds a CrashReporter feature that automatically relaunches Phone Amego after a crash, and fixes several crashing bugs. ($20, free update, 2.7 MB)
