Bloomberg Businessweek did a special edition on Steve Jobs as well. MacWorld also had fairly good coverage in their current edition. MacLife wasn't quite as good but had an interesting story on mods such as MacQuariums. and Cube Kleenex dispensers. The hamster monitor was cool.

For Mac wish list? I think I would like an iPod Touch, got addicted to a game called Modern War and I could use something smaller when I need to use my iPhone as a phone! Came close today with the $30 off discount for any used MP3 player at FS and BB but I'm working tonight.

I've been eyeing refurb MBA's and came close to buying an 11" for $699 but the more I use my iPad the more I find that I use it a lot more than my laptop in fact I stopped carrying my laptop to work since I have a desktop Mac here and at home. So perhaps when the iPad 3 comes out I'll revisit this or pick up a refurb iPad 2.

Doesn't necessarily have to be a Christmas present but:

What I'd like is some kind of affordable device that I can stream music to from the iTunes library from my big computer (the iTunes library resides on it's own disc in my Mac Pro), to play through the stereo in my bedroom.

An Apple TV would be just the ticket except it doesn't have any outputs except for HDMI. That implies buying a TV for the bedroom and having it on racking up display panel hours to demultiplex the HDMI to feed the stereo while listening music.

I'd like a mini displayport to dual-link DVI adapter for my macbook pro 13" that actually works properly. Apple's are horrible, probably the worst Apple product I've tried (and that's saying something because I also own the Apple bluetooth headset which was pretty terrible). I'm waiting on a Kanex C30 (which from what I've read online actually works properly) so I might get my pre-christmas wish. I've never seen another apple product with so many 1 star reviews on their own store as their (ridiculously expensive at > $100) adapter.

What about an Airport Express? That'll do exactly what you want.

My Christmas gift to myself is arriving tomorrow after ordering it yesterday.

I decided to upgrade my 120 Gig OWC SSD to a faster 240 Gig one in the Mac Pro, then put the 120 Gig in my MacBook Pro to give it a boost. After buying a 2011 MacBook Air with the SSD and having one in my Mac Pro, the MBP drive seems incredibly slow. No more spinning disks for me except for mass storage and data backup. Boot/Application drives will now be all solid state on all Apple devices.
