Last night I went to copy a CD for Jenny and my laptop gave me a very bad message. “Your hard drive has reported an error that Mac OS X cannot recover from. If this drive has not failed completely back up as much data as you can.” the next few minutes were filled with a slow torture or intermittent clicking noises emanating from my laptop during its death throws.
I managed to back up some of my files, but little things like ALL of my bookmarks, contacts, email, web projects, music… (the list goes on and on) have all been lost. My last back up is about 3 months old.
So, please send my your contact info and any bookmarks and links to files / programs that I might find useful. And learn from my pain; back up regularly.
CoverFlow is completely amazing. The video on their home-page is exactly what it does, and it does it beautifully!
As their site says:
Don’t know about you, but I find browsing a list of album names somewhat uninspiring, to say the least. One of the big attractions of a physical album is the beautiful packaging and aesthetic appeal, something that’s sorely missed with the digital equivalent.
CoverFlow aims to bring that aesthetic appeal to your mp3 collection. It allows you to browse your albums complete with beautiful artwork pulled from any sources it can find, whether that’s buried in your song tags, collected via Synergy, or looked up on Amazon.
CoverFlow is far better seen than described, so you might like to take a look at it in motion:
And just so you don’t get too excited about it before it’s time: Mac OS-X 10.4 or higher only.
