There are simply too many Names to mention, too much explaining to do... One day I might say more about my frustration with the Topic of Picking Favorites, Ratings, Polls etc... For now, here is a quick hint:

To me, "Favoring" sometimes feels as silly as these questions:

What is your favorite finger, or leg, or toe, or eye, etc.?!

But, "if I had a gun held to my head"... :), here is a Very Quick List in Alphabetical Order By Last Name, so to avoid "favoring"...

Music & Brain discussed by scientists! Priceless iTunes Podcasts Series that will inspire ALL! This link will launch it on iTunes on your computer. If not, just Search iTunes under: Music and the Brain. This is not an Infomercial, where they try to sell you a CD/DVD so that you, or your kid, become smarter overnight:)! It’s real scientist sharing some great knowledge that will inspire & educate not only "civilians", but musicians too! I’d love to do a concert with my band, where the audience includes a lot of kids and their parents, all of whom have already heard all of those Podcasts, and prepared their own Q’s. It could be a fun Play & Tell Performance, plus Q & A! "Innerview" -- jazz artists profiles. Very tastefully done! Should be fun for both musicians and not!... -- Hey, if you want to know about teeth, talk to a dentist, and, if you want to know about music, talk to a musician:)!

Before The Music Dies -- a movie about the Music Business from the insider's point of view!!! So I'll say it again -- if you want to know about teeth, talk to a dentist, and, if you want to know about music, talk to a musician:)!

 MacCast -- great source of Mac info, I can't recommend it enough. Substance, yet not snotty

This is a must-have! Mac only, product!

Flip4Mac™ -- play Windows Media files (.wma and .wmv) directly in QuickTime (Free Download), more info here

Other World Computing -- great place to buy Hard Drives and more Apple Hardware... These guys are "people" people! They really know the tech fine print, cause they use a lot of products they sell. I know that first hand. They are not looking for a quick sale, while disregarding customers' true needs. The whole OWC vibe is great!!
