    Favorite Mac OS X applications? 

    This is just going to be a quick post, asking for your help. For those of you who don’t know, I just recently got my first mac. It is an iMac G4, and I am looking for some nice and useful applications, preferably free that would be good for me to install and use. So please, if you have a Mac please leave a comment telling me what applications you use the most or your favorite applications and give a little bit about what it does.

    Thanks for your help! Also, soon we might be doing a giveaway here at Gadgets and Tech so stay tuned.

      My favorite applications are:

      Evernote (the OS X and iPhone app – free)
      NetNewsWire (RSS reader with iPhone app – free)
      iWork (I use it for invoices and flyers)
      Pixelmator or Photoshop Elements (for light photo corrections)

    iPhone clones 

    I’m getting pretty tired of all of the iPhone clones. If you haven’t noticed there are so many new phones coming out that don’t have a stylus and you just touch them with your finger. Let’s name them! Blackberry Storm, LG Voyager, LG Dare, G1, and some Nokia phones. Just like Apple and Steve Jobs wanted it to be. It just seems like everyone is coming out with touch screen devices, but the touch screens on them are absolutely terrible.

    Now personally I love touch screen phones, if they work. I just recently went to my local Verizon store and tried out the LG Voyager. I don’t want this to be a complete bash on the LG Voyager but their touch screens are absolutely terrible. I really don’t think I could get use to that touch screen because it is a lot worse than the iPod touch. Which is what I use for my touch screen device. For all of you who have an iPhone or iPod touch here is a question for you. Do you feel that all of the other touch screen phones and devices are terrible quality compared to you iPhone or iPod touch?

    I certainly do. I think that every company with a touch screen device just rushed their product out the door to compete with the iPhone when they should have took their time and actually made a quality touch screen. I would love to hear you thoughts on this, please leave comments.
