IBM's new Tivoli Continuous Data Protection for Files will offer real-time file backup to a NAS device. Features to include: versioning of files, "small foot print", multiple targets, and perhaps most importantly, no need for server-side software. UPDATE: Check out IBM's earlier VitalFile, which is strikingly similar and can be downloaded free of charge.

Google Talk "enables you to call or send instant messages to your friends for free - anytime, anywhere in the world." The 900k installer requires Windows 2000 or XP, and while other Jabber-based clients work also, voice chat requires the Google Talk software. You'll need a GMail account to join in the fun. Feel free to say hello: tinyapps at gmail dot com.

The inclusion of Dashboard widgets in Tiger seems rather gratuitous considering how much memory they use:
There should at least be an easy preference pane to enable/disable Dashboard. (UPDATE: There is: DashOnOff) Instead, there is the following command that will do the job:
defaults write com.apple.dashboard mcx-disabled -boolean YES
defaults write com.apple.dashboard mcx-disabled -boolean NO

OS X Tiger: Why did Apple decide to sell iPhoto 5 as part of iLife rather than bundle it with the OS, as has been done since OS X was released? Paying $79 for a formerly included app did not sit well with me, especially since there have been a number of problems reported with iPhoto 5. Instead, I installed iPhoto 4 from my Panther CD into Tiger via Pacifist, a shareware extractor/custom installer for .pkg packages. iPhoto 4 seems to work flawlessly under Tiger, and importing old photos is as simple as copying "~/Pictures/iPhoto Library" into the same directory in Tiger.
