The Getting Things Done model of organizing one’s life is popular, but software that attempts to encapsulate it has met with mixed success. Matt Neuburg finds that OmniFocus is the best such application he’s tried so far, despite its quirks. Also this week, Jeff Porten writes about the ways digital rights management is causing technology to fail, and what that means for the future. Glenn notes the odd unavailability of iPhones at the online Apple Store, new iPhone carrier agreements, and AT&T’s Wi-Fi service in Starbucks stores. Also, Adam looks briefly at CHDK, a utility for giving some Canon point-and-shoot cameras extra functionality, and Glenn highlights the recent incident where a woman’s stolen laptop was recovered thanks to Back to My Mac. In this week’s TidBITS Watchlist, we note the releases of Parallels Desktop Build 5600, MacGourmet 2.3, Comic Life Magiq 1.0, FoxTrot Professional Search 2.0b3, Quay 1.1, Freeway 5.1, Fusion 2.0 Beta 1, CopyPaste Pro 1.0, Opal 1.2, Caboodle 1.1.4, and DocHaven 2.0.5.
