Apple Remote without the Apple

iTunesFilter: I used to own an iPhone, and used Remote to control iTunes at home. I have both Macs and PCs at home, and would like to use both to be able to control iTunes playback on another machine (old system dedicated to stereo in kitchen/living room) remotely. I'd prefer not to use Remote Desktop. [more inside]

Webcam Karaoke

I would like to display Karaoke lyrics over a live webcam feed. This means I might need a skype (or equivalent) plugin that plays the music & lyrics, or find some karaoke software with the ability to display lyrics over a transparent background. (That is, to have windowless karaoke display, and run the webcam feed behind it. ) All the software (I can find) to play .CDG (karaoke lyric standard) files forces them to be played with an image background, or over a video file.

What is the best Anti-virus and firewall apps for a Win 7 PC in 2011?

What is the best Anti-virus and firewall apps for a Win 7 PC in 2011? I just purchased a new Dell PC, and I'd like to set it up with a good anti-virus and firewall program. The general consensus seems to be that McAfee and Norton are bloated, resource-hoggy, and ineffective. Google turns up plenty of free programs, but credible, CURRENT reviews are hard to find. Many of the big programs offer "security centers" - huge programs that combine anti-virus, firewall, malware removers, and phishing protection. Some of this seems necessary, others not-so-much. Also, Win 7 has a firewall built-in; since I'm not remotely a security expert - I have no idea if this is sufficient, or I need a 3rd party app on top (or instead of it). So, what's a conscientious but non-expert Windows user to do? (I know, I know - get a Mac. Which I've done - I LOVE my iMac. But I ALSO need a PC for work...)

PC death

Two PCs have died in our house over that past month. Both were old(ish) and neither was much-loved, so no tragedies (we back them up). I've already replaced one (a 7 year old Dell Dimension 8400) and will eventually replace the other -- a Mac mini. Here's my question: any idea why both would suffer similar deaths? In both cases, they seem to boot up, show the first stage of loading their respective OS, then cycle straight into a non-responsive screen with only a tiny square of light (ala the Matrix). Both machines have surge protectors and the PC had a profusion of anti-whatnot software. Any ideas?
