I found a couple of fun apps for my MacBook that I thought I’d share. The first up is MacSaber a largely useless app, with plenty of Geekiness. It uses the motion sensors in a MacBook to drive the sound effects of a light saber. When actived, if you move the MacBook around, it sounds like a shimmering light saber. Again, fun, but not real practical.
The second app is called iAlertU and it lets you set a “car alarm” on you MacBook using the remote, so that thieves will not run off with it. This one is kinda useful and it’s free. It’s one of the few useful things to do with a remote control on a laptop. Up until now, my remote has stayed in the bag.
