Remote Control iTunes on a Mac with SMS from anywhere in the world

SonarTheater remote controls iTunes and [[DVD]] player on a Mac with SMS. With a text message you can shuffle songs, mute/unmute, rewind/forward or do pretty  much anything else on iTunes and the DVD from 3ft or 3000 miles. Sounds exciting.

Unfortunately, there is no trail version for download and it costs US $29.95, so our advice is to ask for a demo version before you buy - Editor.

How to get Macbooks & Apple Gear Cheap: Real Cheap!

Apple products aren't cheap. But, if you are planning to buy a Macbook, an iMac or an iPod shuffle, there is a place to get it cheaper, really cheaper. For example,  you could snag a   15" Macbook Pro for $1699 (300$ cheaper than the list price),  an Apple iPod Shuffle for $49 (50% off the regular price) or an 20" Apple Cinema Display for $699 (list price $1299). Sweet, isn't it?

So how exactly do you get these deals? Nah, there are no coupons, contests to play or mail back rebates. It's easy - Think refurbished. Think Apple's certified refurbished products from Apple's Online Store; all of which come with limited 1 year warranty, and can be extended with Applecare.

Parallels: Run Windows XP, Linux & any other OS simultaneously with Mac OS X


Parallels Workstation  is the first virtualization software designed to work with Intel-based Apple computers including the MacBook Pro, which allows the you to simultaneously use Windows, Linux and any other operating system  at the same time as Mac OS X. 

Unlike the Boot Camp from Apple, Parallels let's you work with all these operating systems without a dual boot; sort of like Microsoft Virtual PC and other virtual PC emulation software, but due to native virtualization it's claimed to offer pretty much the same speed as running it natively. > Read more

Windows crashes on the MacBook Pro
 

So, Windows crashes the Mac as well, ah!  Aaron whose MacBook is in the picture, says you can do it yourself too. "Install it yourself, and try to use the USB cam (open My computer, 2x click on the auto-detected USB cam). You'll see it in 3-D. :)", that's what he says.  Aaron, dude you really need to find something else to do besides finding new ways of crashing Windows :) But we must say, the Blue screen looks really nice on a MacBook Pro! > Read more

After installation is complete, users can choose to run either Mac OS X or Windows when they restart their computer." > Read more
