Remote Buddy
The latest Macs ship with a remote control that allows you to control Front Row and a couple of Apple’s applications. Beyond that, you can’t do much else with it, though. Remote Buddy fundamentally changes this. It gives you control over the rest of your computer via the remote control and also improves the available functionality in those apps that already supported the remote control by themselves. Now available at an introductory price of only 9,99 €.

It’s an emerging rule of thumb that suggests that if you get a group of 100 people online then one will create content, 10 will “interact” with it (commenting or offering improvements) and the other 89 will just view it.

hodgmanapple.jpgThis Daily Show clip kicks the point through with a double-foot-to-face-stomp-of-fury that the internet is not a big truck. The clip stars our favorite Apple PC vs. Mac commercial actor and Daily Show “resident expert”, John Hodgman, and tells us in G.E.D. terms what Net Neutrality really is. The best part? The throwout to the Apple ads, and the huge audience reaction afterwards. – Jason Chen
