Knight RiderLooks like Apple just greatly expanded it offerings for TV shows on iTunes. I was just looking at iTunes and saw the splashes for NBC, USA Networks and SciFi Channel shows. I clicked and was thrilled, they are actually there! The NBC offerings include, Law and Order, Jay Leno and classics like Knight Rider just to name a few. I also saw Monk and the Battlestar Galactica Mini series. This is BIG. I can see my bank account depleting as I type this. Bring on the content!

What happens when you take a MacMini, FrontRow, GPS Software, a KeySpan remote and 10.2″ LCD touch screen display and put it in a Ford F-150? You get the ultimate “Mac” truck. This is one of the coolest Mac car integrations I have seen to date. It is awazing how the Mac Mini is just tucked into the center console. Just awesome. Check out some of the details and lots of picts on Leftlanenews.com.
