comment Select whole words using single finger tap gesture
@calvera No, Snow Leopard. I just have an earlier model MacBook that doesn't support those fancy new gestures.

comment Checking for folder/file changes using Automator?
I don't think this is natively possible with Automator. You could probably do something with some scripting (and the scripting actions if you need it to work inside Automator), but you'd have to run the workflow to detect changes since the last run.

comment Can I disable the iPhone's auto-rotation to landscape mode?
@g I imagine this is because the iPhone does not have a landscape home screen (or phone, or calendar, or maps, or iTunes, or ...) orientation. It would lock landscape applications, say Safari, to landscape and you would need to rotate the iPhone every time you close and open the application. Portrait is the iPhones native orientation, unlike the iPad which doesn't really have a native orientation and thus locking to current mode makes more sense.

comment Mail.app notification filtering
Mail rules only run on mail that is in the Inbox. If you are moving the messages on the client side (in Mail.app) you could add the Growl notification (via AppleScript) there, if your mail is filtered on the server then this will not work.

comment Mail.app notification filtering
@ohmantics You can choose to have GrowlMail only show notifications for Inbox (Mail > Preferences > GrowlMail > Only notify for emails in your Inbox).

comment Apple Mail incoming mail notification
@elhombre GrowlMail does not do this on my installation, and I couldn't find a preference which would cause it to do so (or not do so, as you require).

comment Convert from OpenOffice to Pages
@Mark According to Wikipedia it is a Microsoft format, thus the spec., and designed specifically for document interchange. If other vendors are not implementing it correctly (with the understanding that earlier versions were not necessarily as rigorously defined, something rectified in later versions) that is not a Microsoft failing. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rich_Text_Format
