If you’re big on social networks then you need Flock, its a lot like Firefox (because its built from Firefox) but it has tools for most popular social networks built in. Just to name a few, it works with Facebook, Digg, Youtube, Flickr, and Twitter. If you have a blog you can post to it straight from Flock’s built in blog editor, a pretty nice feature. Best of all, just like Firefox, it works on Windows, Mac, and Linux. If you’re gonna get it, I would go with the beta version because it’s built on Firefox 3, which I like more than 2, and as far as my tests go the beta is pretty stable.

Every now and then I realize my hard drive is 90% full. When that happens I turn to WinDirStat to find out why. It’s a free program that creates a chart that graphically represents what files are on your computer, color coding by file type. This easily lets you see what’s taking up all that precious space. Sorry non-windows users but WinDerStat is windows only, but if your on linux try KDirStat and Mac users give Disk Inventory X a try, I haven’t used either of those so leave a comment if they’re any good.

Micro Olympics is pretty simple and pretty addictive. If you have important things to do today do not start playing this game because you won’t be able to stop. You launch a plane out of a cannon and need to beat a certain distance, it gets tricky pretty quickly because you can upgrade your plane.

There was once a time when a man could be proud to be a Windows user and envied no man. That time passed on March 24, 2001 when the first edition of Mac OSX was released. Read more about my disappointment after the break.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Along the same lines as VLC, Perian allows all sorts of video formats to play in Quicktime itself, which is a little more convenient than having to launch VLC.  Perian installs as a System Preferences pane, and so has a very small footprint.  This is one of the first things I install on any new Mac.

I can’t remember the last time I had a video file that actually played correctly in Windows Media Player. That’s the reason I turned to VLC player, which will play pretty much anything you can throw at it right out of the box. If you want to find out more, read on after the jump.

Hi everyone (someone?),

I’m the new writer.  Hopefully, I will bring some humor and excitement to the site.  I will mostly be posting about Mac programs and news, but I will also post about other stuff since Evan can sometimes be rather lacking in factual information.  I’m glad to be aboard and hope to start writing soon.

If you’re anything like me then you have way to many programs in your start menu. My beef with the start menu is how long it takes to find a program, having to click 3 or 4 times. Now with Launchy you wont have to click at all. If you want to learn more read on after the jump.
