TidBITS#929/19-May-08

Practicality rules in this TidBITS issue, as Adam explains how an architectural problem in Mac OS X can result in certain applications accidentally filling up your hard disk. He also looks at the Kensington SaddleBag Ultra laptop bag, and reviews MercuryMover, a slick utility for moving and resizing windows using the keyboard (complete with a live demonstration of just what it can do in his first ScreenFlow-created screencast). Security editor Rich Mogull then shares his top tips for keeping your iPhone secure, and we pass on news of the Microsoft Office 2008 SP1 Update, which fixes over 150 bugs in the application suite. In the TidBITS Watchlist this week, we look at PageSender 4.3, CrowzNest 2.0, Captain FTP 5.3, AOL Desktop 1.0, Cyberduck 3.0.1, Cocktail 4.1 (Leopard Edition), Dejal Simon 2.4, and the Office 2004 for Mac 11.4.2 Update.
