Mac OS X tips

discovered this site today and so far worked back through to Nov 2007 archives.

My favorite tips so far have been about 3 apps.
iRed Lite - get the apple remote working with other apps like VLC.

Battery Health Monitor - Tells you current capacity of your battery and number of charge cycles you have put it through.

As a recent convert from Windows (and Linux) I am use to having a start button with access to all applications, which seems to be missing on OS X. So on Leopard i created a stack from the applications folder. However I have grouped a lot of similar applications in folders so clicking on this in the stack just opens the folder in the finder. This program says that it will fix that and I can treat my applications stack just like a windows programs menu.
