Do you have an old iPod Classic lying around just collecting dust? If so, why not put it to use. Most of the old iPod Classics have a lot of hard drive space, for instance mine is over 7 years old and has a whopping 80GB of space. It’s scratched up, has been dropped more time than I can remember, but still works like a charm as an external portable drive. It also doesn’t hurt than it’s small enough to fit in your pocket.

Deleting an application by simply dragging it into the Trash bin does not remove everything. Left behind are preferences, logs, plist files, caches, and sometimes even the PKG or DMG installer. These left over files are usually small and are left behind so if you ever re-install the application later after deleting it, it can simply pick up your preferences, ect and set itself up the way you previously had it set up. However if you never plan on re-installing the application or just want to keep your Mac clean and tidy there are a few great apps for deleting all traces of an application.
