    Is there an app in the mac App store that would allow me to copy and transfer info from my MacBook to wifes MacBook thru shared wifi?

    For example like weblinks, pictures, etc...

    Dropbox? http://www.dropbox.com. So far, for me, it's the best solution.

    Mobile Me/iCloud (EDIT: and AirDrop) is coming, but not yet..

    DropBox is great, don't get me wrong, I use it extensively
    But you may not want all of the bells and whistles and creating an account, etc.

    Take a look and see if DropCopy meets your needs first

    Drag the address to a file (*.webloc) first and transfer that?

    FWIW, besides Dropbox I'd recommend some kind of NAS for Time Machine and shared files if this is really a recurring thing.

    Drag URL icon to desktop. That makes it a file that you can share.
