You see... I'm a geek. Not a Mac nerd like Jay, or a security-Linux-OMG-netbook dweeb like Lee -- I'm a geek. I get excited about the things people do with computers.

Jay's 10 favorite free Mac apps of 2009

After Lee posted his excellent list of 10 favorite free Windows apps, I figured I'd jump in on the Mac side of things. 2009 has brought a lot of great new software to the Mac, especially with the introduction of OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard.

10 Facebook apps you might actually want to install

Facebook apps are pretty controversial, as far as developments in the world of social networking. When they first arrived on the scene, some people rejected them as ugly and useless, while others loaded their profiles with as many apps as they could find. I admit, I was in that first camp for quite a while. But, while I'm still disappointed with Facebook apps in general, I also have to admit th...

I have a Flickr account, and I take plenty of photos, but I find myself not using it as much as I feel I ought to. Maybe Thomas Hawk's list of Top 10 Hacks on Flickr will help remedy that.

I've long been meaning to give Ubuntu a more serious look, and Adam Pash's Top 10 Ubuntu apps and tweaks over at Lifehacker is all the more motivation.

Ten cool OS X screensavers

Phill Ryu is making us Windows users jealous (again) with his list of the Top Ten OS X Screensavers. With one $20 shareware exception, all of his picks are free, and all of them are universal binaries and look stunning. I'm particularly intrigued by the Simpsons-inspired Mr. Sparkle screensaver at #9, Hills at #3, and Fenêtres Volantes, which turns your windows into floating, drifting 3D obj...

It's impossible for any one person to keep track of even one percent of the interesting stuff happening on the web, but still we try until our favorites folders are overflowing, our socia...
