    WhatSize - tells you the size of files
    Handbrake - helps make backups of DVD
    VLC media player - plays most formats

    Just curious, but why are you using capitals at the start of every word?

    Rich.

    I presume you already have Comiclife.
    How about MacLorem, Timeline, Onlife, Artrage, Seashore, Imagetricks, Freemind, and Rapidweaver (as liketom said).

    If you have a powerbook then do a search on Google for the software that takes advantage of the tilt sensor in the 'books. There's an application to keep a window steady (in relation to the ground) all the time and there's also a game which you control by tilting your powerbook. Personally I think that's one of the coolest apps ever out there! Just wish I had a powerbook to use it on!!

    Yes, I think those are just really cool, innovative apps. There's someone thinking different! I also like the app that catalogues your music and movie collection by scanning bar codes with the iSight (just wish I had one). Very cool! Any other innovative apps such as these that take hardware/software to the next level?
