I just upgraded to Tiger (OS X 10.4), and I like it! The built-in tools are sweet and the overall the OS is awesome. I had forgotten how much I like this OS and how much it makes Windows suck.
I also bought a small USB wireless mouse from TigerDirect, and it’s nice. The new Logitech VX Revolution is a beauty, and its easy to install and use. I almost wish I hadn’t gotten such a good deal on it (30 bucks after rebate for a what Staples is selling for $70), because now I want to get the same model in the desktop (MX Revolution) version for my desktop. Oh well, that won’t happen – but I can dare to dream. I don’t need to spend 100 bucks on a mouse. But alas I don’t, it too has a rebate! w00t! w00t! meh. I don’t think so.
I started using Adium as my chat client, and it’s pretty nice too. It allows you to have all your chat apps logged in on a single client, and it’s easy to use. It’s like Gaim on Linux/Windows but a bit nicer. The little guy even flaps at you when you get a message.
It’s nice too, I have a low cost decent lappy to sit at the TV and fiddle with while I watch – it doesn’t get any better than this.
