…Windows wants Quicksilver?

Quicksilver

Quicksilver is an app that simply sets the Mac apart, as any Windows counterpart has yet to come close to the functionality of the intuitive launcher.

However, that doesn’t mean they’re not trying.

Recently, both Lifehacker and Smashing Magazine put together rundowns of the best of the best Windows launchers, and though they’re not without their faults, it’s a good start for those that live within the Windows world.

Do you have a favorite?

…It’s Website Wednesday: Popurls?

Popurls

Popurls is “the dashboard for the latest web-buzz, a single page that encapsulates up-to-the-minute headlines from the most popular sites on the internet”.

Think of it as the best of the best, gathered up and laid out in a clean and easy to read format, with plenty of customization to make it your own.

If that’s not enough, you can also access popurls on your iPhone, via Twitter, through Jaiku, from Facebook, on the PS3 and PSP, and with the Wii.

…Shawn Blanc loves Transmit and Coda?

Transmit and Coda

Shawn Blanc’s series of reviews for “some of the greatest software available for the Mac” continues, and in addition to NetNewsWire and Mint, he’s also published equally thorough reviews of Transmit and Coda.

Though Transmit is something that I use constantly to keep this site up to date, Coda is new to me, so I was definitely interested in reading Shawn’s thoughts on the two.

If you’re at all interested in the best of the best for the Mac world, then these are must reads, so get to it!

…The Wootable Awards are here?

Woot

Sure, CES is filled with plenty of glitz and glam, but what about the rest of the show? It can’t all be the best of the best; can it?

Short answer: No.

Thankfully, Woot is here to save the day by filling that void with The Wootable Awards.

What are the Wootable Awards?

A collection of what people at CES “wind up seeing instead of the wondergadgets they’ve been dreaming of.”

From the Least Impressive Laptop to the Cheapest Exploitation of Patriotism, it’s a collection of the best of the worst, and it’s sure to paint a different picture of CES than what you had imagined.

Are you ready to be blown away by CES 2009?

Woot sure is.
