Untrash the Trash

Feeling trasher's remorse? On Snow Leopard, you can open the Trash (click the Trash icon in the Dock) and "untrash" individual items there. Select one or more trashed items (files and folders) and choose File > Put Back. This returns the items to where they were when you originally put them in the trash. The keyboard shortcut is Command-Delete - the same as the shortcut for trashing an item in the first place, since in deleting something from the trash you are untrashing it.

PhoneValet 1.1 Improves Integration

PhoneValet 1.1 Improves Integration -- Parliant today released PhoneValet 1.1, a software upgrade to the company's Mac OS X-based hardware/software telephone management package (see "PhoneValet, Can You Get That?" in TidBITS-699 for a full review). PhoneValet 1.1 provides tighter integration with Apple's Address Book, enabling you to dial phone numbers from within Address Book, and automatically setting your status in iChat to "on the phone" when you're using the telephone. Unfortunately, the iChat integration (which you turn on in the Call Actions dialog accessible from the PhoneValet menu) works only if your status was set to available before placing or receiving a call. Other improvements include Panther compatibility, Apple event support, better support for AppleScript, and plug-ins and examples of how to automate dialing from FileMaker Pro and Microsoft Entourage. Parliant has made available a free PhoneValetRescue application that restores all your data after performing an Archive and Install option to upgrade to Panther. The PhoneValet 1.1 updater is a 9.1 MB download and is free to registered customers; a PhoneValet package costs $130. [ACE]
