Apple, Send Me My Cut!

I really wish that Apple had a partners/friends program. I say this after I convinced a co-worker to spend about 2000 dollars of her boyfriend's money today on a brand new 12" PowerBook, AppleCare extended warranty, and a 4 GB black iPod nano. This is not the first time that I have convinced ex-Windows users to make the switch, but it is the first time I have done it with such craftsmanship! Rebecca, you made the right decision. Welcome!

Lego Hard Drives!

The LaCie Brick Desktop Hard Drive are by far the coolest hard drives ever to grace the market. Though I have mixed feelings about it being USB 2.0 only, the fun design makes up for its lack of FireWire. I'd like to see someone with a nice stack of these things, and build a desk out of them. I wonder if we'll ever see other HD bricks of different shapes or functions.

iTMS Karma

As Steve Jobs said, buying music online is "good karma." Last night I picked up a few gems and thought readers would like to know what I'm listening to these days.

Arigato! ^_^

Even tastier than the McRib, the Scottdot RSS feed is back after a four-month vacation!

Beam me up, Scottie: teleport for Mac OS X

Do you use two Macs simultaneously at work like I do? I've known about this little Mac gem for a while, but never got around to trying it until a few days ago. It's called Teleport. Using Bonjour (zero-configuration networking) in Mac OS X Tiger, Teleport allows you to "sync" one keyboard and mouse with two Macs. If you've ever used multiple displays, you'll feel right at home with Teleport. Support for copying and pasting between machines is also built right in. After using Teleport for a few hours, I'm hooked. And it's free! Teleport for OS X 10.3 or later
