Greatascent: Highrise meets Address Book in web and desktop 2.0 harmony

Web 2.0 is great and all, but I bought a Mac to utilize the power of Mac OS X and its software.

Review: new .Mac webmail delivers, mostly

Apple teased us with an announcement of a .Mac webmail upgrade at the end of September, and yesterday they delivered. The new webmail feels zippy (though it was understandably a little sluggish a couple times while I was testing it last night), and the innovative, refreshing new features raise the...
