    What do you folks do with your laptops on the airplanes?

    I will be in a flight for 18 straight hours... without internet. I was wondering if you folks know of any macOS apps that I could use to kill time while I am in the plane.... I will be running them in my MBP...

    Something for free if possible:p

    Chess comes free with your mac - that can take some time for a good game. Are you looking for games?

    You could also watch a DVD or two.

    Grab some free books beforehand:

    (if you can afford a flight you can afford a small donation :) )

    or get to grips with a few new apps, on several occasions I have done tutorials for some of my favourites in flight and it has payed dividends to my productivity after I have landed. :)

    I use MacTheRipper to rip some DVD's (that I own) to the hard drive then watch them during the flight.

    Pocket Tanks is a very fun and addictive game that I play. Marble Blast Gold was also fun, although it wasn't included with my MacBook pro like it was with my iBook G4.
