time machine. It’s pretty simple in use, but really cool. I try it a few days ago and it’s really fun.

EverNote is a pretty sweet app that allows you to take notes in every way imaginable and the search feature is amazing. Allows you to scan or snap a picture of a document, receipt etc and it will even index the text on that doc for future searches.

The latest version is the one I’m referring to and it’s in pre-reg beta so you’ll have to sign up for an invite. Watch the tour vid and I’m sure you’ll be intrigued.

I could not live without Launchbar (insanely fast and smart way to open apps and stuff and completely hidden) also 1password (locks all my passwords and helps fill forms).
