Do you find dialing the phone to be an unnecessary hassle, considering that all your phone numbers are stored somewhere on your Mac? Matt Neuburg does too, so read on for his review of the slick new phone dialing tool Dialectic. Also this week, Tonya makes the difficult (and not entirely successful) jump from Eudora to Apple Mail, Jeff explains how to configure Mail to avoid iCal spam, and Adam looks at the new Apple Enthusiast site and VMware Fusion video contest. We also note that the audio edition of TidBITS is now available in the iTunes Store’s podcast directory for easy subscriptions. On the release front, we point to a slew of firmware updates from Apple, a major upgrade for the macro utility Keyboard Maestro, the long-promised Final Cut Server, and the “Macworld Mac OS X Hints Superguide.” Lastly, in the TidBITS Watchlist, we note the releases of Airfoil Speakers for Linux, Apple’s Aluminum Keyboard Firmware Update and Pro Applications Update 2008-01, iGlasses 2.1, OmniWeb 5.7, and Adobe’s Photoshop Lightroom 1.4.1 and Camera Raw 4.4.1.
