Great deal: 250 GB drive with enclosure

Amazon.com: Western Digital 250 GB USB 2.0/Firewire External Hard Drive with Dual Option Backup and USB
This lovely little beast has 250 gb of disk space in a nice little box complete with USB 2.0 and Firewire. It comes with a copy of Retrospect Express from Dantz/EMC (I’m a huge fan of the Retrospect line, so this is a good thing) and it’s pretty easy to use.
So don’t just sit there – go get one and backup your data!

flickrframe: fun for the whole family

the Widget Foundry :: flickrframe Widget
If you have a flickr account – or a friend who has one – then check out this Widget. It will show you three images from the chosen stream – in order or randomly. Clicking on the image will bring you to the URL of the photo – it’s kind of neat to have different photos of the family show up whenever I use Dashboard.

Distributed Boing Boing

DBB is a project started when various internet filtering companies started to block access to Boing Boing for reasons that are pretty silly – just because they tell people how to bypass internet filters.
It’s a long standing internet tradition that if access to something is blocked, that someone else figures out how to provide access to it. In this case, there’s the DBB project – a way of providing access to Boing Boing via other peoples websites.
I believe in free speech and openness and all that other cool/good/hip stuff, so I’ve jumped on the bandwagon:
DBB
Share and enjoy!

Letterbox your email

Letterbox | aaron.harnly.net | Aaron Harnly
Letterbox is a plugin for Apple’s Mail.app that takes advantage of your widescreen monitor. It rearranges the interface into three vertical columns –so the message pane is to the right of the message list, rather than below.
I just installed this, and it’s pretty darn good – like “I can’t believe Apple didn’t come up with this” good. Go check it out!

Smack that laptop!

Medallia Blog: SmackBook Pro Archives
I myself also use a desktop manager – it’s very handy to have all my web browsing windows on one screen, then be able to switch over to a completely blank screen to check my email or whatever. Anyway, the new MacBook and MacBook Pro come with accelerometers to try to prevent the hard drive from crashing if the computer is dropped. People have already started putting together games and other interesting toys to take advantage of this – I think this is a novel way to switch the screens. Watch the movie and decide for yourself.
