comment Snow Leopard VNC client
CoRD seems to be a nice tool ! I don't know much about Windows RDP... Does CoRD support the same as Remote Desktop Connection for Mac (microsoft.com/mac/products/remote-desktop/default.mspx) ?

comment Hacking into WiFi using OS X!
So far I can remember it works with apple hardware but you need to record a huge amount of traffic in order to crack the wireless key. There are better wireless chipsets than the ones from apple computer that can use packet injection to generate traffic so it will take less time to collect the data.
