Newton Connection Utilities 1.0 -- In TidBITS-379, David Gewirtz complained that a beta version of Newton Connection Utilities shipped with the MessagePad 2000 (and the eMate 300). Apple just released an updater to Newton Connection Utilities 1.0, which updates NCU 1.0b6 to version 1.0. If you've used the beta version to synchronize between your PDA and desktop machine, Apple recommends that you run another synchronization right before updating NCU. The download weights in at 4.8 MB. [ACE]
Create Rules Based on Entourage Messages
When creating rules in Entourage 2008, you can save some time by selecting a message like those you want the rule to work on before defining the rule. That way, when you add criteria to your rule, Entourage fills in the data based on the data in the selected message. So if you wanted to filter messages containing TidBITS, you could select an issue and add a new "From Contains" criterion to a rule. Entourage will automatically fill in the firstname.lastname@example.org address in the criterion.
