    Contacts are handled system wide using the Address Book app in your Applications folder. Any contacts added here will be accessible to all Apple applications.

    This is really neat.

    I added my home address in my contact and I can print envelopes to my contacts with my home address already entered.

    I added birthdays to my contacts and they shows up in iCal.

    I added AIM user names to my contacts and they're real name shows up in iChat instead of their user names.

    Yeah, Address Book is a nice app that eliminates the need to have contacts spread across a ton of different applications.
