This is an updated version of 'Break Down, Baby.' Mods, can you remove the previous version?

A little higher quality, added a couple of things.

LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!! Though I think that you should put all those things on the desktop in a folder in the documents folder.

I have uploaded my second video entry to the link below. I have given up trying to upload it through the contest upload page- just can't seem to get it to work!

Anyway, this one's called "Covered in Apps'. Music by Buckethead.

If the mods figure out how to take this video and make an actual thread, much appreciated! :)

Nice! I would suggest making a black slide between the last app and the apple logo (I am assuming you made album art and imported into iTunes?)

Thanks. That's funny- I actually had a black slide in there and removed it. It just didn't look right for some reason.

My suggestions for the first entry are pretty much teh same as last time:

un-clutter that desktop!
make everything Apple-identifiable, like you did the second one, using only apple apps, you could use a DVD in there like you did but make it pirates of the caribbean or something disney/pixar. Try not to use 3rd party software that most people don't identify apple with.

As for the SECOND video, i like it! perhaps you could include something like "only on a mac" or something like that?

Well the message of the ad is 'Get a Mac', not necessarily 'Get Apple Software'. The approach is more slice of life on a Mac than a showcase of Apple-only apps. (Unlike my second entry). That's why my desktop stays cluttered, and I'm using other great Mac software that wasn't written by Apple. Thanks for the feedback, I did incorporate some of your initial comments.

I saw this when I was voting in the final. :)

Could you tell me what the widget with the girl is (Elisha Cuthbert?)?

You're why I didn't post the high-res version where you could pause it and read stuff off my system. :D

It's just a hack-job home made widget. Widgets are really just packaged html pages. Isolate your favorite graphic, make it a transparent .png, drop it in an html page.
