    One of the ways I'd like to use Spotlight's Smart Folders is as a way to create "project" folders like Entourage creates (I don't like entourage's interface that much, which really gets to me cause the idea is good). I figure one of best ways to make sure certain files/folders are able to be kept track of is thru the metadata in the comments, using keywords. So, any chance there's already a way (or going to be a way) to easily "tag" my files, a la Keyword Assistant for iPhoto?

    Second, has the whole Address Book problem with not using nicknames in Mail been fixed with Tiger? or is that still a thorn in everyone's side?

    AddressBook nicknames?

    anyone? what's the deal with nicknames? doesn't look like it's been updated, which is really a thorn in my side...

    That's great, I thought I was the only one that is annoyed with that.
    Why even have the possibility of nicknames when you cannot actually use them in other apps like Mail or iChat? :(
    I guess I need to write more feedback to Apple. FIX THIS.
