It’s becoming a common story: After determining that he didn’t really need one, Joe Kissell finally took the plunge and bought an iPhone 3G when it became available in France. Joe discusses how the iPhone has changed his work and some of the limitations that he’s run into. Speaking of the iPhone 3G, Apple is recalling its diminutive USB power adapter due to the risk of electric shock. Adam looks at the new StuffIt Deluxe 2009 as the venerable utility turns 20, Joe highlights the improvements in VMware Fusion 2.0, Tonya finds an immediate use for the just-released MercuryMover 2.0 window-moving utility, and we note the release of the latest edition of Adam’s “Take Control of Buying a Mac.” In the TidBITS Watchlist, we spotlight the availability of Gears for Safari, BBEdit 9.0.1, Coda 1.5.1, Apple’s Digital Camera Raw Compatibility Update 2.2, Apple Remote Desktop 3.2.2, and Server Admin Tools 10.5.5.
