I actually installed frontrow on my first generation imac g5 and it worked well. i used front row enabler which was posted on macupdate. without bluetooth i had no chance to ever make it a usefull feature, but it was neat all the same– in the end it really just made me want to get a new imac– which as it turns out will happen because my old one is being replaced by apple (yahoo).

Looks Shady?!? Tell me what looks “shady” about a website that operates on .Mac account and has a registered domain information through ICANN for http://www.appsformymac.com? Can’t be too Shady when I’m willing to give out my personal information. If you’re still concerned, visit my homepage at http://www.markabrooks.com.
