Mac OS X Updates
Did you know you can update your Macbook or iMac in two easy clicks? That's right, just simply click the Apple button, then Software Update.

This program can also be great for downloading historical speeches, karaoke music, instrumental music for brain provoking thinking, and much more. If you find another creative use, please share!
