LinkedIn, the business networking website, has replaced the Rolodex for professionals around the world. Your LinkedIn contacts represent a wealth of e-mail addresses, telephone numbers and personal information. You can use this information more effectively by exporting your contacts and syncing them with your Mac's Address Book. Once in your Address Book, you can send them e-mails with Mail, talk to them with iChat or further sync the contact information to your iPhone.
