Take photos and movies. Record some music. Make a very complete presentation about your trip and share it it with the world.Get ToonBoom Studio and have a blast making animated films. Record everything you need in Garageband.The possibilities are limited only by your imagination. Reply 3 of 7 bancho Posts: 1,517member April 10, 2008 10:28AM OmniGraffle is fun. I have used it in classes to take down diagrams the professors draw. OmniOutliner is a great complement to it for note taking.OmniGraffle also has a truckload of neat templates available for free.

How I envy you!Get a couple of games, there are some inexpensive ones out there... check www/apple.com/gamesHowever, don't waste too much time playing.As far as useful apps, there are also some free (or almost free) ones that are pretty good.for note taking:voodoopad www.flyingmeat.comassignment planner (great for students but I thought it was free) http://www.apple.com/downloads/macos...ntplanner.htmlAs for games:Sim City is a great experience (and you can actually learn from it, too)Others will chime in as well.
