Sparrow – The new mail for Mac from domleca on Vimeo.

Sparrow is a native (and innovative) Gmail client for Mac OS X. Check out the video to see what it looks like, how clever is it’s UI. My only regret is that going “stable” on the Apple AppStore the application now is a ~10$ software while it has been free (as in beer) for all the beta testing monts …

I’m hoping for an freely available – Ad supported – release, as they’ve stated it would be less than a month ago, on the model of the latest releases of Eudora …

LookOut (add-on for Thunderbird)


LookOut is a plugin which allows Thunderbird to interface with Microsoft’s mail tools by decoding metadata and attachments encapsulated/embedded in a TNEF encoded attachment (aka winmail.dat).

The TNEF decoding engine was inspired (with permission) by the project. LookOut has a full MAPI decoder and the ability to transcode some of those properties to iCalendar (ics) and vCard (vcf) formats. As an option all MAPI properties within a email can be viewed so other types of information can be deciphered.

If you’re a Mozilla Thunderbird (or Seamonkey) user and you’ve got enough of your email’s inbox full of those dull attachments install this LookOut plugin without hesitation, you’ll finally see those files as the sender’ meant you to see.

ICQ for Mac? No, thanks!


This morning I was surfin’ around my web spaces and since the kOoLiNuS nickname comes from my ICQ subscription back in november 1999 I went to their site looking for the newest Mac client.

Imagine my surprise seeing how there’s no client available and you’re leaved on the web-based one {while the Windows counterpart now it’s become binded to the omnipresent Facebook}.

For one of the first “social” network out there it’s a bit sad, isn’t it ?
