    Yes it can be a widget or an application or anything. Personally, I'm always looking for more cool widgets.

    On the practical side...

    ChronoSync - I've never been so backed up in my life.

    No, wait - you know what I mean.

    Garageband. Quite simply, there is nothing else like it out there.

    IMO, there are 2 apps that should get the award for software of the decade. One is Google Earth, which is a brilliantly conceived implementation that unifies desktop and internet technologies in such a seamless way not seen before or arguably since.

    The other of course is Garageband, another brilliantly conceived app which, for the first time, opens the door for creating music wide open to virtually anyone, from the rank novice who knows absolutely nothing about playing music to the full-fledged advanced musician. Most of the iLife apps are pretty good, have their good points and well, idiosyncrasies, but Garageband is a knock-your-socks-off stunner.

    I'm on the edge between Rita and Seashore.

    Though when I'm not working, Civilization IV, the Sims 2, Diablo II, Warcraft III and Diablo II are always good. ;)

    So hard to pick an absolute favourite!

    I would struggle to live without iLife 06 and iTunes.

    I wouldn't say there are many things I do on my mac that I couldn't do on another platform, but my mac makes it all much easier and much more fun! :)

    of my three machines on the internet

    ancient compaq laptop from the last century...ie

    semi ancient dual g4 power mac...ie

    intel imac...safari and opera and both of those browsers kick the butt of microsoft's ie, but i don't think ie is the worst thing on the planet like many here may tend to think

    i wish i could say that i could use my photoshop, illustrator, and page maker competently, but those great huge and difficult apps are for my wife...i actually find microsoft word too complicated, if i am to know "everything" about the program, and i stick to microsoft works word processor on my pc since i work much faster with that than word

    my real depth on computers was fixing them as a call for hire, warranty, and self employed technician for seven years...and i will be very happy to get out of that job :) ... all longtime computer technicians, IT project managers, and network engineers know what i mean
