Product shill
Just registered SizzlingKeys to the tune of $7 for a "family pack" (five-computer license). Highly recommended for all Mac OS X users. And virtually all of its functionality is available in the freeware version.

SizzlingKeys addressed one of the most painful parts of my transition from Winamp to iTunes: it adds configurable global hotkeys for music control (as well as a few bonus hotkeys for locking or sleeping the system). It's got a clean, simple interface and has been an indispensable sanity saver at work - letting me keep music on and mute/pause it at a touch when calls come in.

EDITED TO ADD: Since I'm on a buying spree today, fish owners should check out the Screwcumber. (Hey! Get your mind out of the gutter. *thwaps your nose with a rolled-up newspaper*) Nice solution to the problem of how to sink fresh vegetables to the bottom of the tank.

Hot diggity. I use iTunes on windows (basically because of the music-organizing habits I picked up when I had an iPod), and that's one of the features I want most. You've got me looking for parallel apps now.

Hey, does this mean that a Screwcumber is winging it's way towards a pleco near us? If so, I want to be there when Boing does his happy dance.
