    There are a lot of netbooks on which you can install and run OS X, but if you're mindful of the handy comparison chart those lads at Boing Boing Gadgets have compiled, you'll know that the Mini 9 is about as ideal a platform as you'll find for a Hackintosh ultraportable: Everything from wi-fi, sound and the function keys down to the optional integrated mobile broadband card and the SD card reader are supported and work as they should. No hardware compromises at all. It's awesome.

  • This plugin allows quick creation/manipulation of CSS Rules, in a "jQuery-way". It includes features like chaining, iteration using each, selectors with context. Many functions are available, like slice, pushStack, not, add, remove, append, css, and some more. As far as it has been tested, the plugin should perform well in most browsers, some specials methods still need some more testing. Feedback is much appreciated.
  • GreaseKit is a SIMBL plugin, that adds user scripting to Safari, Mailplane, Diet and all WebKit applications.
  • Manage your MySQL databases with the best looking MySQL Database Management App on Mac OS X. Sequel Pro is the perfect tool for working with database-driven websites and applications with support for MySQL 3, MySQL 4 and MySQL 5 databases.
