Why I Love Mac Apps

After switching to the Mac 2 years ago I found out that compared to windows application which are often very functional, they have no style and are not the most pleasing to look at.  I don’t know what it is, but Mac developers just seem to make their apps and websites look both amazing and extremely functional.  A couple of really nice posts that highlight this can be found here and here, both from appstorm.com

Services and Automation

So after discovering this awesome Mac Podcast,  Mac Power Users, I’ve started dabbling with Mac’s Automator to create some nice services and applications.  One App that I finally got to work was a workflow that opens up a dmg saved onto my computer then transfers downloaded torrent files and subsequently closes the open dmg.

HDJ-2000 Awesomeness

What can I say but WOW! These headphones are amazing, I had the chance to head into Store DJ today and have a listen and the sound was pristine, brilliant highs and heart pumping lows. The isolation is another key point, you can barely hear youself talk when wearing these. The construction is sturdy and they are as light as the Sony MDR-V6’s that I currently own (a big selling point). The $400+ price tag is worth it and I can’t wait to buy these.Amazing

Brilliant MashUp

I found this song a couple of days ago when trawling through Hype Machine.  Its a MashUp of Party and Bullshit from Notorious BIG and Party in the USA by Miley, I know, a bit weird but listen to the song before you judge it.  Check it out here.
