Within Keyboard and Mouse Preferences under System Preferences, you can configure the scroll wheel to act as an Application Switcher. Press the scroll button to bring up Application Switcher, scroll to toggle to the application you want, and hit the scroll button again to switch.

Intuit Phone and Email Correction -- While Steven Becker wrote the article on Quicken 6.0 in TidBITS-299, I called Intuit to ask what phone numbers and email address they'd prefer to have included. After passing me to four different people, Intuit finally gave me what turned out to be incorrect information: apparently the email address was dedicated to MacInTax (another Intuit product) and the phone numbers were sometimes answered by Intuit, then other times by a dock worker somewhere in California. So, here's Intuit's latest version of their preferred contact information for questions or information on Quicken. Keep your fingers crossed. [GD]
