I downloaded MacJanitor from VersionTracker to take care of the daily, weekly, and monthly UNIX maintenance, since my Macs usually sleep when not being used.
A chrome Apple logo? Please say it ain't so...
[It's just awful when a decent topic gets bogged down with unecessary drama...] Back on topic, many have long held that the name 'iPod' implied it's general functionality.

Not necessarily because Apple has made it great, but because of Shareware authors that brought the most needed functionality back (WindowShade X, ClassicMenu, Application Menu, Themes, etc.), and because of me learning AppleScript.
