You can now use pidgin with Facebook



Pidgin is an instant messenger program program that like Yahoo, MSN, AOL, GoogleTalk, Trillian… Facebook has integrated messaging in the lower right corner of the page.  Really in the background it is using Jabber protocol which is common.  Pidgin (iChat for mac) can be configured to access your Facebook account.

I dont care for Remote Desktop on the Mac provided by Microsoft. So after searching around I found CoRD.

For those of you who use Microsoft outlook I found a cool add-on from Microsoft.  This program adds a new box on the bottom of Outlook that shows attachments, emails and other data from the contact you are working with.  This feature can be added to outlook 2003/2007 and is comes default in 2010.

Features: Facebook, Attachments, emails, calendar events etc…  in bottom pane in outlook.
