Remember when they said your Mac was just a toy? It's payback time

Your PC pals who made fun of your Mac back in the old days will sing a different tune when they see what you’re playing with now. Create a Harry Potter style picture frame that puts on a continuous slide show; teach your house to turn on the lights, adjust the thermostat, and water the lawn by itself; edit and record live TV while you watch; and more.
