With Sparrow 1.2, the email client gains connections with Facebook (for displaying friend pictures and adding friends from within Sparrow), a unified Inbox, support for Gravatar, Subject-based threading, the option to create a new message by Control-clicking Sparrow’s Dock icon, and localizations in eight languages. A variety of bugs have been fixed as well. I still can’t consider Sparrow as a usable Gmail client due to its newest-first conversation sorting (so threads must be read from the bottom up) and extremely slow load performance for message bodies. A free Sparrow Lite works with only a single Gmail account. ($9.99 via the Mac App Store, free update, 11.9 MB)
Remove Excess Audio/Video from a Pear Note
If you ever find yourself in a situation where you used Pear Note to record a class or meeting, then forgot to stop the recording and ended up with an extra few hours that you didn't want, don't worry. You can crop off the extra recording. Just move the playhead to the end of what you want to keep, then select Crop Recording From Here from the Edit menu.
