Just a rant against BibDesk:

Every now and then I look into the progress of BibDesk, but I've never 
gotten over the fact that it doesn't allow the use of macros (they are 
expanded and fixed on input). So if you like defining thing like 
@string{IEEETransMag = "IEEE Transaction on Magnetics"} so you can 
change them all later (for an abbreviated list, say), you're out of 

I'll switch to BibDesk when it gets this long-overdue feature. It's on 
the radar, but I don't believe there's any short-term likelihood of the 
problem being solved. Until then, I find managing my bib files manually 
just as easy as using JabRef or tkbibtex.
