QuoteFix is a fantastic plugin that I can't imagine living without. I only wish did bottom-posting by default!

Chromium 28.x is the first version to include Google's WebKit fork (AKA "Blink"), which is why I'm sticking to version 27.x for a good long while. :^)

The version for this should actually be 0.9.9 RC2, as noted on the official Handbrake site:

Tweetbot is so good that I found myself only using the iPhone/iPad when accessing Twitter, since there was no Mac client that delivered a comparable experience. Now that there's a Mac version of Tweetbot, I'm glad to be able to use the Mac as well!

Do yourself a favor and use SABnzbd+ instead. You'll save yourself $30 and a lot of hassle. Here are my problems with this application:

* The interface is a bewildering mess. Does "Pause"/"Resume" operate on the highlighted download or on the whole queue? This is just one example of the many UI flaws that make for a very frustrating experience.

* Post-processing is much more error-prone than other clients.

* App sometimes completely locks up, requiring a force quit.

SABnzbd+ is free, open source, and frequently updated with new features. I'm struggling to come up with a single reason to use NZB Drop, and I'm coming up empty. As a Cocoa-based app, it should offer a superior experience, but it doesn't. SABnzbd's web-based interface is more straightforward *and* offers more flexible and powerful features. It's really a no-brainer.

The most user-friendly media center solution I've ever used. I never tire of stopping mid-show in the living room and picking up right where I left off on the kitchen iPad. Brilliant!

Ooh! Ooh! Does it have the new Conversation Ads feature?

I, for one, cannot WAIT to see these new ads, which Microsoft describes as "content that could spark additional topics of conversation that are relevant to Skype users."

Ads are now "content." And the motivation isn't to make a bundle of money on ads, it's to "spark conversations."

Add this to the craptastical user interface and built-in backdoor eavesdropping, and it's plain to see that Skype has a bright future ahead!
