Re: Little Snitch

Depends on your uses. If you want your email, allow Mail... if you want to surf allow Safari, if you want to have your Mac set the time for you, allow NTPd, etc.

Re: The new ipod nano 5th generation video to computer and DVD to ipod?

They will need converting into a compatible format to be put onto the iPod. I believe Handbrake will do it for you, and quite easily too. HandBrake (http://handbrake.fr/)

Re: Growl and Adium?

Don't think I could use a Mac without Growl these days, very customisable, and you can choose what apps alert you and what for. You can even send the notifications to another mac on your network.

I installed SilverLight when it was first announced, hadn't found any use for it though, so got rid.

Unlocking a phone isn't illegal. It just may go against the contract or EULA you have with your provider. You own the hardware after-all.
