I'm not superstitious generally, but I think I'll wait for 6.6.7… Just sayin'… ;-)

Why is it listed as "Intel/PPC" when Aperture is, and always has been, Intel-only? Just askin'...

Glad I found FStream. It is exactly what I was looking for: A small, lightweight app that plays my favorite internet radio stations. If you want something that helps you search, categorize, or manage stations, one of the pay ware options may be better for you. But if you don't mind finding and feeding it the url you want, and don't need a bunch of eye candy and artwork, this is a gem. Kudos to the developer.

Lack of metadata and FLAC support are deal breakers for me but looks like a promising app once these are added.

'Visit Developer's Site' is a dead link.

Still trying to figure out why a web browser should take 200MB on disk even if it does have its own flash engine. Runs fast but the bloat bothers me.

Very nice, have been using XLD which does a good job but you can only change conversion settings, destination, etc in the preferences which is inconvenient. MHAC allows settings to be changed more easily which is a big plus. Only thing I would ding is lack of a VBR option. Overall VERY nice and kudos to MediaHuman, they make good apps!

I wanted to like Chrome- I really did. I does load pages fast, as others have noted. But last night I was watching Netflix, and I noticed that the fan in my Macbook was blowing like crazy a few minutes in. Never seen this happen in Firefox or Safari. Quit Chrome and loaded Firefox and went back to watching. The fan quieted down in less than a minute. I did not look at Activity Monitor for the specifics but Chrome obviously puts a lot heavier load on the CPU than other browsers. I don't see why I should put up with that. I also don't see why a browser should hog 100MB of HD space, even with its own Flash engine. And as Robertcoogan observes, popup blocking is porous at best. I give it a C overall.

What does this do that Address Book's built-in duplicate cleanup doesn't?

Besides cost $13 I mean. Just curious, seems pricey for the function.

Just been starting to play with virtualization apps (love OSX but curious about Ubuntu et al). Tried Parallels, Fusion 3, and now VirtualBox. I am not a major Geek and depend on decent documentation to find my way along. And which one has by far the best documentation? The one that doesn't cost $79. Parallels is OK in that regard and Fusion is probably OK... if you already know what you're doing. Only VirtualBox clearly explains each step of the process and gives you the information you need to make the decisions you are asked to make. I haven't done enough with it to post a full-on review but it is the only one that didn't have me wanting to pull my hair out ten minutes in.
