Despite the proliferation of apps like Bump which use the iPhone to swap contact data, good old-fashioned business cards are still a necessity -- even though most of us discard them after putting the data in our address book. Now you can simplify that process with Card Scanner Pro.
Apple's offered the gift of Lion Server to anyone who's willing to drop an extra $50. Previously, you could only get OS X Server bundled on your Mac mini Server or Mac Pro, or pay $499 for the Snow Leopard Server install discs.

Apple’s MobileMe has come a long way since its former iTools and .Mac days, and if CEO Steve Jobs is to be believed, this year it will get even better -- and maybe even free, if not cheaper.

Every time we have MobileMe sync problems, we end up with duplicated contacts in Address Book. And over time, small human errors in data entry build up into a big mess.

You can go through each contact individually, but Contacts Cleaner vaporizes much of that tedium by thoroughly scanning your data and scrubbing significant problems out of your Address Book.

One of the things I liked about Outlook was its ability to print what you see on the screen onto paper. Address Book prints as if it’s a list and never saves those items you would use every time. Is there a better way?
