Focusing on resolving some compatibility issues with OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, The Omni Group has released version 1.10.3 of its OmniFocus task management app. The maintenance update fixes some integration issues with Apple Mail on Mountain Lion, ensures that OmniFocus works correctly with MailTags 3.1 and later, squashes a bug with the “allowed mail senders” scripting property, and fixes a regression with the Japanese localization that made the Help menu item non-functional. While iCal Sync isn’t available when running on Mountain Lion, Calendar export in the Sync preferences will still work. ($79.99 new, free update, 22.4 MB, release notes)
Avoid Simple Typos
If, like me, you find yourself typing 2911 in place of 2011 entirely too often, you can have Mac OS X (either Lion or Snow Leopard) fix such typos for you automatically. Just open the Language & Text pane of System Preferences, click the Text button at the top, and then add a text substitution by clicking the + button underneath the list. It won't work everywhere (for that you'll want a utility like Smile's TextExpander), but it should work in applications like Pages and TextEdit, and in Save dialog boxes.
