Cool OS X app: WeatherPop — a little icon that sits in your menubar and tells you the current temperature and weather forcast. It’s $8.00, and I just may have to buy it.

Java workstation: “Basically, it’s a fully functioning coffee maker integrated into a computer case. You pour the water into the funnel at the top, it goes down the tube into a book-shaped water tank where it sits until you hit the power switch, at which point the heating coil boils the water, sending it back up another tube and into the coffee grounds basket.” I don’t drink coffee, but if I did I would certainly want one of these out of sheer laziness (but a PowerMac of course).
