Magical software

Magical software: For you Tiger OS Xers (OS X Tigers?), here’s a gee-whiz thing I just discovered because I live with a 14-year-old. Add the Sing That iTune widget to your Dashboard. Then go to iTunes and under the radio tab, start streaming RCN 9412. Then, open the dashboard and be amazed when the lyrics of any song playing magically appear. (It works with any iTunes song where it can track down lyrics, however, it’s rather magical to see it work with a radio stream.) Also, how the 14-year-old became a classic rock fan, I’ll never know.

On a related note, while not nearly as cool as a widget that automagically looks up Lynard Skynard lyrics, Khoi Vinh today discovered a cool thing to do with a couple of Macs on a train.
