Locations – Change your Mac’s settings based on which network it’s connected to. I wrote about this here.


Dropbox – Sync between everything (Mac, PC, iPhone). Dropbox is perfect.

SoundSource – RogueAmoeba’s free menubar program lets you quickly switch your audio inputs and outputs on your Mac.

Droplr – a quick way to easily share text, images and other files. I use this for disposable images and text on Twitter and stuff like that.

Google Notifier – Growl notifications for incoming mail.

Pastebot Sync – Lets me transfer whatever’s on my Mac’s clipboard to my iPhone’s clipboard, and vice versa. This plus Pastebot for iPhone is a game-changer.

Bluetooth – when I need it, I need it, but otherwise I like to have it switched off.

SynergyKM – share a mouse and keyboard with other computers over WiFi.

Time Machine – don’t get me started. Automatic, incremental backup is great. Everything else about Time Machine isn’t great.

I happened to have four laptops at home this weekend, and when I set my PowerBook on top of the two that were already on the table, it occurred to me that it would be fun to add the MacBook Pro to the top of the stack and snap a picture.

From the bottom up, this is a Sony Vaio I have for work, an old iBook with dead battery and flaky wireless I’m setting up as a test database server, my 12" PowerBook, and a 15" MacBook Pro I have for a few days of testing.
