Help me make the most of Google Voice! I want to be able to send and receive phone calls and text messages on my Mac. I have an iPhone and a Google Voice number. Can you clear up a few things for me?

How do I answer incoming calls on my Mac?
Can I add Google Voice to my iGoogle home page? It seems silly that I can't find a way to do this.
Are there any particularly good Mac Apps for Google Voice? I see something called BigPhone, but there's no way to try it before buying it. GrowlVoice looks awesome, but I can't get it to make calls, and it doesn't look like it has the ability to answer them.
What about iPhone apps? Is there a difference between the GoogleVoice app and the Talkatone app? Is the GoogleVoice app the best app to use?
Is there a reason I shouldn't use Google Voice instead of my regular AT&T number when talking on my iPhone? Any Google Voice best practices / tips / tricks I should know of?
