You see an app in the dock and you dont know what it is, and you wonder about what it is for ages...

Happens to me all the time...

Are you implying that you'd like to know what our random apps are; or are you just ranting ('cuase I'm always curious on thos things to, and if you're ranting then I say, "right on.")?

I do not like seeing anything AOL in a Dock on a Mac!

Seriously though, Yes, I have seen many users Dock's and wondered what a few of the apps were. One time I was going to ask but someone else beat me to it, so I found out without asking. I think it was either MacMans or MacAddict's desktop.

Most of the good users here will respond. It's other places like SolidStalin said where it's hard to find out.
