Option-click to Hide Apps Quickly

This trick has been available in the Mac OS for years, but many people still don't know it. If you have too many windows cluttering up your screen, you can hide specific ones easily as you work. When you're in any application, hold down the Option key and click on another app's window, on the Dock, or in the Finder to switch to that other app and simultaneously hide all the windows in the previously current app.

Mostly half-truths from a software developer quite economical with unpleasant truths.
WiFi sync works ONLY with Android 2.0 or higher (more than 70% of the Android smartphones run 1.5 or 1.6) and text messages [called in Europe SMS] archiving does not seem to work under Snow Leopard.
Not recommended. Waste of money.
