    Question Neat stuff?
    Are there any neat add-on's that are recommended for mac OSX? Similar to how PC has Windowblinds and Microsoft Plus. Stuff like that. Maybe a handy little remote for iTUNES. I have this flimsy little one, but it kinda stinks. Stuff like that to add a little spunk to my computer

    Cool
    You can can go to versiontracker or macupdate tp find a lot of differey program. Since I never alter a PCs environment, I am not sure what you are looking for, but you may find what you are looking for in one of those places.

    definitely iKey. turns those useless F buttons into an itunes remote (that took maybe 10 minutes to script, even with me never having used the program before), or scroll through your windows (when youre too lazy to press command-tab), or type this: The date is Thursday, December 04, 2003 at 23:15:39.826
    yes, with milliseconds. It's a neat little program. :-D

    Oh, and you can turn on voice commands too. Not really an addon, but it's fun.

    so, iKEY is what? a scripting button or um it's just a program that gives you the actual little iTUNES remote??

    the best iTunes remote ive found is Synergy. i have mine setup so i press command+space plays or pauses and command+right or left arrow for next or previous track .. plus the floating info window is nice too

    and like graphite mentioned macupdate, versiontracker, unsanity and konfabulator are great places to find neat apps

    I LOVE Konfabulator! So much fun. Another good one is CandyBar to change all of your icons. All available on VersionTracker.

    I use a little app called Launchbar, it allows you to hit command+space, then type the first 3 letters of the app you want to launch. It's great, no cluttered dock, and no sliiy mousing to find your app to launch.
