ShapeShifter is a revolutionary new product that lets you change the overall appearance of your Mac using 'themes'. We're not talking about just desktop backgrounds and icons here, we're talking about everything - the look of windows, menus, apps, buttons, absolutely everything. You don't wear the same clothes everyday, your house doesn't look exactly like your neighbor's - why should the computing interface you use everyday be any different. You personalize your physical workspace to suit your tastes and whims, so why not your Mac?

ShapeShifter is distributed by Unsanity, LLC.

Whenever iTunes syncs with an iPhone, it creates a backup of the files on the device. It can be interesting to look at these backups, but a bit of work is necessary to get access to them. I've whipped up a quick and dirty application to display the most common cases, iPhone Backup Slurper.

iPhone Backup Slurper is open source and can be found on its Google Code page.
