An Application for Cleaning up the Address Book on Apple MAC's

Links to this post
During the last few weeks of travel I was stuck in the Airport and Highways waiting for the flood water to clear.. and also during the flights was trying clear the mess in the Address Book due to Sync with IPhone and the BB with the Address Book Updated from Mail.app.

In short, it was impossible to go through each of the ID and Correct them, after searching on the net for some utilities which could sort the Address book, I could not find any which was fast ( takes hrs for my 1700 contacts) or not to my requirements, hence wrote the applescript to do the following

The Script work its way through all the contact is the address List.. and creates Groups
1. Duplicate Email Id's — List of Contacts with same email ID's including Contacts where the email Id is entered twice.. (Strange.. Address Book Issue, copy of the email Id under work & home)
2. Duplicate Phone — List of Contacts with same Phone Numbers including Contacts where the Phone Nos is entered twice.
3. Duplicate Name — List of Contacts with Same Names
4. Duplicate No Name — List of Contacts without the First Name and Last Name

Its been 10 months of life with beast Apple MACBook Pro, Is it good or Is it Bad.. I do not know yet cause I still miss my Windows and Application on Windows..

Honestly, Apple is a Animal or a GOD, let look at one of the most liked feature

The touch pad is most comfortable but it does not have a 'DEL' button. Know with one hand i can manage everything except Delete, this requires both hand not both fingers because the Fn Key is on the Left Side and Backspace is on the right side.. Crazy..
