Increase Boom Volume Quickly

If you're using Boom to increase the volume on your Mac, you can change the amount to which Boom increases the volume quickly in two ways. Either use the slider available from Boom's menu bar icon, or enable and set hotkeys (Command-Shift-+ and Command-Shift-- by default). Then, when you need that push to 11, more volume is available at the click of the mouse or tap of the keyboard.

Comments about Windows Migration Assistant for OS X Lion 1.0

Would have been even cooler if you could use the migration assistant to pull the entire PC in to a bootcamp partition.
