DiscRotate is a MenuItem that will control the speed of your optical drives. It is written in Cocoa for Mac OS X Leopard and later. It can help you make optical drive operation much quieter. Upon launching, a drive icon will appear in your menu bar at the top. It will list all installed optical drives and let you choose how much throttling applies to each of them. The green bar shows the current setting, and can be clicked to change the throttling speed. 100% means the minimum drive speed. When using heavily scratched CD/DVDs it is recommended to lower the setting to about 85%. Clicking the CD icon in the list will pause throttling for that particular optical drive.
Downloadermac is a Cocoa application for downloading items from the Internet. It frees up your browser for other tasks by reducing the load on your Web browser's process by creating a thread just for downloading items.(e.g. firefox-bin, safari). It is tested on both Panther (10.3.9) and Leopard (10.5).
Unlike other Java to Objective-C solutions, Java-Objective-C Bridge doesn't require any code generation of class stubs. It allows you to use any Objective-C libraries and frameworks from Java without having to write any native code. In addition to being able to use Objective-C objects, it allows you to pass Java objects to the objective-c runtime as delegates, so that you can write an entire Cocoa application in Java. The bridge provides 3 levels of abstraction. At the lowest level, it provides wrappers around the Objective-C runtime functions. At a slightly higher level of abstraction, it provides a procedural API to send messages to the Objective-C runtime. At the highest level of abstraction, it provides a Proxy class that serves as a wrapper around any Objective-C object that allows you to work with it in Java almost the same as if you were in Objective-C.
KeyBoards is a cross-operating system platform that synchronizes short text messages or URLs. It is designed to be used for composing messages on a desktop system with a real, comfortable keyboard, and then sending them to a mobile device for transmission as an SMS. It is ideal for use with non-Latin character sets.
Keynesis Lockngo is a security application that runs directly from a portable drive. Lockngo encrypts and password-protects data against loss or theft. When protected, the drive appears empty (data is hidden) and will not allow new data to be written onto it. Lockngo has Military Grade 256-bit AES Encryption, FIPS 140-2 Certified. Lockngo also comes in a cross-platform version for Mac and Windows. This version allows you to lock a drive on a Macintosh and open it on a computer running Windows and vice versa.
Notational Velocity is a Mac OS X desktop application that stores and retrieves notes. The same area is used both for creating notes and searching. I.e., in the process of entering the title for a new note, related notes appear below, letting users file information there if they choose. Likewise, if a search reveals nothing, one need simply press return to create a note with the appropriate title.

This allows you to group relevant pieces of information together regardless of which application it came from or where it has been stored. Furthermore, TagoMan can facilitate tagging as part of your daily workflow by offering full Automator and AppleScript integration. Its use of the OpenMeta framework means it can be used with an ever-growing number of applications out of the box.
