I have a few questions, never having done this before. I need help setting a price, setting up the OS for sale, and safely deleting my data [more inside]

Cool stuff for an "Innovation Starter Kit"

I'm looking for interesting things to add to what will amount to an Innovation Starter Kit for a small group of faculty who I'm trying to encourage to think a little differently about education. So far I'm thinking about things like Sugru, Chromecast, a Leap Motion Controller, maybe some light-sensitive paper... What else can I add? [more inside]

How transfer Tivo bits to OSX

I'm a TiVo owner and Mac OSX user, and I'd like to the ability to transfer upcoming (and some currently saved) programs from my Tivo (Series 2, 80hour) to my Mac. I have DSL that comes into an Apple Air Port. What's the best way to do this? (Or is the easiest thing to buy an external DVD recorder on my TV and record stuff that way?) I just want to occasionally share a clip with non-TiVo-owning friends/colleagues that they should see.

What was the Treo application for photos on the Mac?

I recall an application for the Treo 600 phone which allowed me to dump pictures from my phone directly to my Mac bypassing the built in route which only allows you to transfer images by emailing them. I think I saw it on Gizmodo or Boing Boing a while back, but can't find it now when I search. Anyone know what the name of this Palm application is?

SACD: worth upgrading my CD player?

About 5 months ago, we bought an awsome Sony home theater system. At the time, I was focusing on buying a system that would play fully loaded DVD's, and did no research concening audio CDs. Consequently, I've become aware of SACD Cds. Unfortunately, the DVD/CD player does not have that capability. Is the sound of SACD CDs worth upgrading my DVD/CD player?
