I just discovered some really neat features hidden in the Mac OS X Tiger Address Book application. These may not be new specifically to Tiger, but they are new to me.

Select a contact and you can not only get a new Mail or iChat message to this person, but map a contact's address (in Mapquest.)


But some of the neater stuff only works if you have both a phone and a computer with Bluetooth. Then, you can dial the phone and send SMS messages from Address Book, by right-clicking (or control-clicking) on the phone number:



When Address Book is open and paired with a phone, an incoming call will be displayed on the computer screen and managed from the computer:


Unfortunately, the incoming call features do not work when Address Book is not open.
