First, let me say Dashboard is cool, it’s sexy, it’s got neat transitions, and it is the number one selling feature of Tiger.

Drag Bag Streetwinder

Owen and Nemo join-up for a review! When they saw these bags at last January’s San Francisco MacWorld Expo, we just knew we each had to try it, so we spent a l-o-n-g time with the company’s representative drooling over these bags, each of us for a different reason.

Skin Tight for iPod Shuffle

As the name suggest, this case fits the Shuffle tightly. It becomes almost a second skin in fact. (Hey, Skin Tight!) They come in various colors, including Blue, Green, Red, White, Pink, and Black. Speck shipped a three-pack of them, including the White, Pink, and Black. I think the Black looks cool, but my wife likes the Pink.
