Stunning New Vizualizer in iTunes 8

Well, apparently you could do this  Burberry Outlet UK  before the new iTunes 8 release yesterday, but now it’s an official iTunes feature instead of an add-on. I have to admit that I’d never ever turned on the iTunes vizualizer before  Burberry Shoes today (you ca Treating And Beating Fibromyalgia And Cfs n toggle it using command+T), but I’m certainly going to use it now.

Drop.io Promo, free upgrade to 1G account

I wrote about drop.io before, so I'm not going to gush about why I think it's so awesome again. Suffice it to say that it's one of the best online storage options on the internet right now.  It might not be the biggest, but it's certainly the most functional by far. …

Fight Spam with Re-Captcha. And Digitize Books.

Re-Captcha has to be one of the most ingenius ideas to ever grace the internets. What I primarily use it for is hiding my email from spam-robots. Rather than putting my email address on my blog in plain view for spam-bots to see, I use Re-Captcha to hide it.

The Best Web-app you’ve Never Heard of: drop.io

Drop.io is kinda like tinyurl.com plus yousendit.com all rolled into one, with a few added functions to boot. Here's why I love it. It's the best file sharing site that I've found to date.

Speech Recognition Chess in Mac OSX: A Deaf Leopard

While I really like speech capabilities in Mac OSX, I have to say I'm a little disappointed with the speech recognition. I got very excited when I thought about the prospects of eating macaroni and chess on the sofa and yelling chess notation at my Macbook. I know, I know... Who wouldn't?

Using Active Screen Corners in Mac OS X

Like with any operating system, you likely don't utilize all the features that you potentially could. Heck, some of the features, you probably didn't even know they existed. Or maybe you just didn't bother to enable them. That's likely the case with Mac OS X's Active Corners feature, which is a neat little tool that helps you do many different tasks just a little bit quicker.
