Hehe... I like it. Pretty useless, but then, isn't that the point?! I don't liike the idea of swinging my Mac though. I tried it, it was fun, and now it's also...in my Trash. Great idea though! ROFL....

This is great! My dog goes insane and starts barking at me as I swing my very expensive MBP around in circles in my living room pretending I'm Obi One...

The above review is completely fabricated.

I'm not insane.

Works exactly as directed. Some of the most fun I've ever had swinging around a $3000 object. Though one would have to imagine a real light saber would cost you more. So maybe this would be more economical for Luke?

I'm swinging my 17"inch macbook obliviously.
THIS THING IS JUST TOO COOL.
I'm going over to my friends to act for Starw*ars: The Macbook Returns.

Once I finally got it to work with a restart (rather than a cold start), it worked brilliantly!

Useless! Excellent! Dig it!

Now, I just need to meet up with another 15" Powerbook user... I see your Shwartz is as big as mine!

Now, if only someone would write similar software to make the iPod do this...it's much easier and cheaper to swing around like a Jedi weapon! ;)
