Poll Preview: Rumor with a View -- As you'll read below, Apple last week filed a lawsuit against an unknown individual to prevent future leaks of confidential information. This move follows on the heels of Adobe's lawsuit against MacNN, although Apple's going after the source of the leak, not the sites that published the rumors. Consumers and industry watchers love to know what products might be coming, but leaks can prove financially damaging to Apple and other companies when consumers defer purchases of current products - and the financial health of these companies directly impacts their ability to make products users want and need. Our question then is, "Do you believe the value to consumers of information published on rumor sites outweighs the potential damage it does to the companies involved?" This is a serious question that reflects directly on issues surrounding consumer advocacy and the Macintosh community, so please, tell us where you fall in this debate by voting on our home page.

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.
