    Am I missing something?
    -Buddy list is missing/floating around somewhere; why can it not be a part of the sidebar?
    -I start typing a friend's name in the new message line and 15 different versions of their name pop up with 3 different imessage contacts
    -this would be a nice thing to put on my dashboard, no?
    -and how about a global hotkey to bring it up too
    -taskbar icon should be able to open the window, not just change status/compose new message

    am I overthinking things or what

    Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I get real annoyed when I use iMessage on my iPhone, then try to continue a conversation on my Macbook Pro with Messages only to find the text all out of order. Yet it seems to work fine starting a text via Messages and then going to iMessage via my iPhone.

    "It just works", doesn't seem to apply to everything Apple designs.
