I love hacks, especially when they break through the little commercial barriers that companies put up to try to keep you from buying any competitor's products. The truth is that nobody sane wants to be a one-brand man: even as a Apple fan, I'm keen to use Windows – for a start, I love Napster; and of course I'm a big fan of the Xbox 360.

One of the most un-Microsoft things about the 360 is that you can plug an iPod (or PSP) into it and soundtrack your gaming experience – saving you the horror of re-ripping your CDs. It's a nice, touch, but I've always felt a bit envious of Media Center users who can stream audio and video from their PCs to their TVs. Apple's forthcoming iTV box will offer the same for Mac users, but I have no patience.

So I was thrilled to find that Nullriver – who make the excellent PSPWare software to sync movies, music and more with your PSP – also do a program that links your Mac to the Xbox. Connect360 has everything – simplicity, functionality – and you can use the free trial before you decide whether to splash your cash.
