Entertainment & Fun
Pandora is cool, but I find their playlists can be a bit repetitious. Right now I'm loving Songza, another free music streaming service. Songza helps me set the mood right by suggesting playlists by activity, for example "Hosting a Sexy Pool Party".
What's boring? Default icons. I just jazzed up my Mac desktop with some fun alternatives. It's super easy to change them. Even better, I used this trick to help my son find the Spelling City website that he uses for homework every week. Now he can find it easily by clicking on "his macaw".
