It recieved a lot of press and hoopla when it was first lauched making most of the 'cool toys' lists that always come out over the winter holidays. The only drawback was that most of these lists seemed to be telling me that the requirements for being so tragically hip was a Windows machine. I have always firmly held the opinion that being hip shouldn't require an Microsoft OS (even though MS would love to have it that way). Being a Mac OS X user, I thought it was well within the potential of Mac user to be just as hip if not more hip. So I charged ahead, reverse engineered the USB protocol, and created a Mac OS X command line utility.
