Sniff, so Beautiful.

Jonathan Coulton writes songs using Garageband, and the results are great.

What mac user won't want to sing this one; A Laptop Like You, love song for a Powerbook. Sniff, I wanna kiss mine right now.

My other personal favorite of his is aboutIkea

But do check out his his other songs, it's a great stop for fans of witty music with a geek sense. They've earned a spot on my iPod.

Tips for switchers

Every switcher has one, one simple workflow change or tip that changed their lives for the better... Here's mine:

If you work on a PC at work and a Mac at home (or vice versa) you will find yourself scrambling regularly for the action key for your most basic keystroke commands like save and copy/paste. On the PC it's Control, on the Mac it's Command, or the "apple" aka "clover" key.

Take a neon colored post it or round colored sticker dot from the office supply room and trim it to the size of the key in question on each machine, preferably the same color within a day you will no longer be looking for the right key you will aim for the color. This changed my life when I had o work in a PC-based design office and went home to my G4 at home.

Post it's will come off in time to replace them regularly or you can also brush on some bright nail polish or even a little acrylic paint for a more permanent solution if desired (yet one relatively easily removable with a little Goo Be Gone and a couple tissues) - after it dries you should be good for awhile.

That's my big tip for switching on a daily basis, put yours in the comments and I'll write an article later filled full of your helpful hints.
