The time has come. You’ve been salivating for months over all the exciting goodies Apple has promised to deliver with Leopard, and now that you’ve got your install DVD, you’re ready to make the upgrade to Mac OS X 10.5.

TwitterWhere is a very clever way to follow tweets by location. People like to call it “follow twitter anywhere”, but I can already do that. What they mean is follow tweets from a certain geographical location. You can enter in your zip and a range (in miles) to follow. This is a very cool way to follow what’s going on right where you are. It’s kind of neat to follow the tweets from my home town but I could see this being very useful if you were out of town and looking for something to get into. Very nice.

Gubb is a free online list management tool that takes zero learning to use at its most basic level.
You can copy an existing list in Excel, Outlook or elsewhere and simply paste it into Gubb. The site will create a new list and turn each item into an independently manageable unit. Or you can just create a new list manually. Make as many lists as you like, and easily move or copy items from one to the other. Share lists with others by choosing that option from the list’s menu, and entering their e-mail address.
