iTunes Dashboard Widget

apple My iTunes Music Store dashboard widget has made it on Apple's Top 50 dashboard widget downloads at number 15.

I actually never got around to posting about it here on my blog, but I built it a while back - around the same time I built the amazon search dashboard widget.

The Year of the Tiger

apple Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger was just delivered to my office from Amazon. I'm pretty impressed, I ordered it with Free Shipping, got a $35 rebate, and it was only 2 business days later than if I ordered direct from Apple.

Tiger (Java 1.5/5) on Tiger (Mac OSX 10.4)

apple java Apple has released Java 1.5 as a manual download with no plans to release J2SE 5.0 for earlier releases of Mac OS X. Which I guess means that its not going to show up in Software Update for quite some time. Additionally applications requiring J2SE 5.0 / JDK 1.5 must explicitly request version 1.5.

Fooling Amazon

apple misc As I mentioned the other day I ordered Mac OSX 10.4 for $95 off of Amazon. Since Tiger is not out yet, and I selected free shipping, and group my packages into as few shipments as possible, Amazon was holding the other items that I ordered and waiting to ship them until Tiger arrived.

Upgrade to Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger for $95

apple I just ordered my upgrade to Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger off of Amazon because they have a $35 mail in rebate if you order by May 1st.

I also grabbed a copy of iWork 05 for $74, and iLife 05 for $69.99 (saving another $16). You can get some good deals at Amazon on Apple software.
