Here’s an interesting product. It’s a text editor that locks out all desktop distractions. Like the example above, it blocks out your menu bar, e-mail icon bounces, Skype bounces and sexy desktop images. The idea is that you only focus on the task at hand. Remember “concentration”? Kids with A.D.D. will find the room spookily quiet when they run this app. I enjoy it for the aesthetic minimalism.
The irony is beautiful as well: You need the latest version of Mac OS X to get rid of all the applications that OS X makes possible.
