Browse iTunes Store w/o iTunes

Opening iTunes and checking something in its store isn't always a quick, memory-friendly task. For previewing apps, browsing music and podcasts, or otherwise scoping purchases without iTunes, the App Store website is a great alternative.

Hosted on the Google App Engine, and hopefully legit in the legal sense, App Store parses the iTunes Store's particular XML code to present all the inter-linked goods and downloads. Reviews, directory tree browsing, and even direct links to actually open iTunes to particular product or purchase pages are all included. Account information and gift certificate redeeming are, as you'd expect, only available in iTunes, and the Power Search function appears busted (for the moment?). Otherwise, it's a convenient, low-drag way of flipping through the iTunes store, whatever platform you happen to be on.

PCalc Lite

PCalc is ideal for scientists, engineers, students, programmers, or indeed anybody looking for a feature-rich calculator for the iPhone or iPod Touch.

It includes an extensive set of unit conversions, a paper tape, an RPN mode, engineering and scientific notation, as well as support for hexadecimal, octal and binary calculations.

Ipod Touch 2g Case

This is my favorite Ipod Touch Case. Tumi T-Tech - Hard Skin Case for 2nd-Generation Apple® iPod® touch - Black. Mainly because Tumi is the maker of this skin case. Plus Tumi is top of the line when it comes to luggage. I highly reccomend it.
