    The Mac. Unix on the desktop and it doesn't suck. I love it to pieces.

    Rendezvous. The ability to advertise and discover services like instant messaging, file sharing, web servers, etc. via DNS is sweet. It's awesome at conferences to fire up iChat and see everyone in the audience listed, and be able to chat with them.

      • teledildonics is the future son! :) As always, look to the military complex or porn for innovation in technology.
