Two interesting links, two great apps

Here are a couple interesting links I came across today:

The Oscars in 60 seconds, via Mahalo Daily.

The Ebb and Flow of Movies: Box Office Receipts 1986 - 2007, via Jason Kottke and Daring Fireball.

And a couple of third-party products I've recently bought and highly recommend:

A while ago I bought Flying Meat's Acorn, which has just seen a 1.1 update. It isn't perfect, but for many image editing tasks it is a better solution than the heavyweight Photoshop (which I also own). The 1.1 update has some welcome improvements, like percentage scaling.

Yesterday I bought a new screencasting tool, ScreenFlow. It's a Leopard-only app, and very impressive. I plan to use it to add screencasts for some of my products, over time.
