Wouldn’t it be cool if you could synchronize files between your Mac and your iPhone… without actually having to copy them to the iPhone? Joe Kissell reviews SugarSync, which lets you perform all sorts of useful tricks with synced files, whether or not you have an iPhone. Joe also examines a number of iPhone 3G cases, with an eye toward finding the perfect iPhone protection that fits in his pocket. Andy Affleck joins us with a look at Ambrosia Software’s new WireTap Anywhere audio utility, which is apropos, given the release of the second edition of his “Take Control of Podcasting on the Mac.” Adam ponders whether Apple’s special event on Tuesday will bring a glitch-free launch, and Glenn notes that Amazon Video on Demand now works on the Mac. In the TidBITS Watchlist this week, we note the releases of Dialectic 1.2, Sandvox 1.5, Simon 2.4.2, PCalc 3.3, Sound Studio 3.5.7 and Tinderbox 4.5.
