Is the Apple Battery Charger a Big Deal?

Is the Apple Battery Charger a Big Deal?
I’ve had an on again, off again relationship with rechargeable batteries. Being a photographer, I tend to go through dozens of batteries at a time in my flash, and that can get pretty irritating.

Things I Like: Hyperspaces

Things I Like: Hyperspaces
When I first got my old MacBook, I wanted to use every feature of Leopard that I could. Problem was, my 13-inch MacBook wasn’t able to handle some of the more advanced features such as Spaces, because of it’s integrated video card.
