Why You Should Have Growl Installed

I have been using Growl for a very long time now. Its one of the best Operating System “Plug-ins” you can get for the Mac. Growl is not really an application in the sense that you use it all the time, but it runs in the background and gives you useful information from applications. Applications have to support using Growl, but the list is ever growing and it isreally useful, as a result you should have it installed.

I was asked to review Syncplicity for Mac a couple of days ago. Since they wanted me to hold off a couple of days before I released the review I have had a good chance to try out the service.

Its designed for people who want to keep certain files sync’d correctly between computers and the web.

The problem with this thinking is that you can defrag your disk and it does help. This is where iDefrag comes in.
