Apple vulnerability of the day (including the Windows versions of iTunes and Quicktime); the way it’s going, on March 31st every Mac in the world is going to self-destruct, right before Apple’s anniversary.
Amazon Simple Storage Service: off-load your website’s bigger files onto the Amazon server grid for $0.15 per GB stored and $0.20 per GB transferred (and it also handles BitTorrent so you can further minimize the bill). Our host doesn’t charge for bandwidth, so I’m not particularly interested until their solution doubles as a SQL server (wouldn’t that be the logical next step?), but it still has a pretty high cool factor, although “obscene” material is forbidden.

FontExplorer X 1.0 (Linotype’s iTunes- and iTMS-inspired font management and online shop for OS X) is available and still free. I’m getting tired of FontAgent throwing beach balls at me for five minutes at a time every time a font is activated, so I’ll have to compare. Someday.
Caboodle [via] is a free information manager (like Yojimbo, only less cute). I’m not going to use it because it lacks proper web link/archive management (if you drop a bookmark into the library, it’ll create a text note containing the URL, and it won’t even be clickable), but it looks good enough for the price, if you’ve got the need for its functionality.
