I am working out my Grouchy-ness and starting to get into the MacHeist.com.

Having folded origami to finish heist 2, we get a very cool sounding password manager (although it is 10.4 only … I’ll have to upgrade soon.)

Password Manager + AutoFill for Mac OS X

Electricity from heat – on a chip?

Watch out for this technology, in a business sense this could be quite disruptive (i.e. a good investment if the development pans out!)
