mac-os-x-snow-leopard-iconFirst of all, giving thanks where thanks is due. I’m very privileged to have been provided with a copy of this new software by my very dear friend Abdullah over at p0ach from his Snow Leopard Family Pack. It took 57 minutes to be exact to install it, with two restarting-points during the installation.
I haven’t put it through a lot to really tell the difference yet, but  so far so very good, the dock icons look sharper and cleaner, the right click option on said icons is now a dark-tinted/transparent one, looks sexier. Apart from all the outside gloss and makeovers, the system runs smoothly, it is notably faster, the applications load quicker, and according to Abdullah it immediately frees up 5GB.
If you’re a Mac user, go for it without thinking twice.

beotimeB&O have always designed the best looking gadgets, whether audio or video devices, anything by them is automatically “BEAUTIFUL”. This time around they’re releasing an alarm clock in the shape of a flute, it has three display screens to show the current time, the alarm time, and which source would be used to rouse you. Here’s the quotation I’m too lazy to summarize:
There’s also an optional wall-bracket, to which the BeoTime magnetically clips.
Picking it up, a tilt-sensor turns the BeoTime into a remote control, with the displays now switching to indicate which source is being managed.
Expect to pick up the BeoTime later this August for $37

ipodFor as little as $79.00 you can get a surprisingly small, surpassingly capacitive new iPod. Introducing the new iPod Shuffle, with the tagline “Its size will leave you speechless, good thing it also talks”. It has the new VoiceOver feature, which lets you know the name of the song and the artist performing it with a press of a button. The ipod comes with no buttons of the device itself, but on the newly made earphones, with controlling features. It’s small in size, big in storage, and very cheap. I see no reason why one shouldn’t by one for each playlist in their iTunes.
