    So, I've only had macs for a few months and I still see things that throw me for a loop... what the heck is the icon between magic prefs and time machine? When I click or right click it it just says synch now. Is this something I installed and don't know what program it belongs with????

    It is MobileMe. BTW mine was in the process of syncing when I took the screenshot.

    Check out System Preferences->MobileMe->Sync and you can turn off the icon at the bottom or just disable it entirely.

    In the preference panel you're referring to, I don't have any option but to log in. In order to remove the icon, I had to drag the icon out of the the menu bar (holding CMD while dragging and dropping outside of the bar; the icon disappears with a kinky-looking puff).

    Is it because I set up address book to sync with gmail? I haven't done that on my other Macs and I don't have that icon in the bar.

    That Mobil Me thing was on my iMac since I've had it--until I learned that drag and drop routine. Just get rid of it.

    Yes. Hold command and drag it off the menu bar if you want to get rid of it.

    Don't care about getting rid of it, I was just confused as I have an iMac and its not on it and I didn't install any synching program so I was like hey, where'd that come from! :D
