Geeky uses for an old mac and some new news from Apple

All right--so I have this old mac that I couldn't figure out what to do with. So, now it's a media center. Huh?

Well, I hooked it up to our TV with a little help from this useful little thing. So, now the old mac can play music through iTunes and can get on the internet via a wireless connection. Or, the whole thing can be controlled with a remote if I increase the geekiness level a little more and use this. But, hey, it is free.

Interested in learning more? Jon Hicks has a great post about using a mac for a media center. Want to use a PC? There's stuff out there.

Side note: Last week Apple announced new macs that run on intel chips. And Microsoft is using the PowerPC chip (what Apple used to use) for the XBOx 360. Huh. Welcome to bizarro world.
