2. Monty Python Apps: A couple of apps from the Python nutters, Python Bytes $2.99 and Month Python The Book of Days $5.49. Great fun.

6. Memory Cleaner: From the same guys as MenuMate, Memory Cleaner from the App Store is $6.49 and frees up unused RAM which makes your Mac run better. Run it when the computer seems sluggish. But also add more RAM. It’s cheap right now… http://alicedev.com/memorycleaner
7. Security Camera: Another from the same team who seem to specialise in little useful little apps, this one takes a pic every time the computer wakes up and saves it into a folder so you know who was on your Mac! $5.49 from the App Store.
8. Spy Camera: Same as above, but this takes video and can send it automatically to a DropBox account so if your computer is stolen you can find it. $10.49 from the App Store.
9. TV Adaptor for iPad and iPhone: eyeTV Mobile just plugs into the port and as log as you are in an area with TV coverage you can watch it on your i-Device.
