Boy we touched a nerve somewhere with TONS of feedback from the listeners! And we LOVE it! Guy makes mistakes and gets called on the carpet for it (don’t worry folks, he’s used to it).

We’re also running a contest for you creative types to write a bumper or commercial for the MyMac.com Podcast and win an iHub!

Fluid is a beta program that will take a link to a website and make it an app. For example, instead of having a bookmark for Google Docs or even a link in your Dock to the site, Fluid takes the link and turns it into an app. Essentially, a Safari-like window opens, but only for that link. I know it sounds like a bookmark, but I have been using it for several sites I regularly use at work, and I am hooked.
