We all know that Steve Jobs has got a penchant for secrecy, but once in awhile Jobs will come through and let a little tidbit slip by in the form of an email. Most, if not all the time, we get excited by this, which is why we put together ten of the best Steve Jobs email moments.
High definition video is one of the biggest reasons to own an Apple TV. But, if your internet connection doesn’t support the bandwidth needs of HD video rentals, you’re pretty much out of luck. Fortunately, you can still rent videos in standard definition quality from Apple (and at a cheaper price, too!) on your Apple TV.
A week's worth of news, but just the highlight reel. That's what we promise here and that's what we deliver, so strap on your seatbelts, keep your hands and feet inside the ride at all times, and let's get our hustle on as we blaze through the week's hawtest Apple news.
Life isn't a beauty pageant, but that doesn't mean your app collection shouldn't be spiffy looking. When an iPad app blows us away with its graphics or interface it quickly becomes one of our most used apps. After toiling in the App Store for days, we're proud to offer our roundup of 50 of the most beautiful apps available for the iPad.
This week in Best Case Scenario (cue cutesy intro song), we're reviewing more iPad 2 cases that've hit the market. But this time, each case comes with a little something extra, like the Booqpad folio case, with room for a notepad and pen inside, and the Qmadix Portfolio case with removable Bluetooth keyboard. We also reviewed a foldable Bluetooth keyboard from Scosche, and a new case from Hard Candy.
If you're a fan of old 1970s car chase movies like Bullitt, then Driver: San Francisco should really be on your radar. It's essentially an interactive version of all those great scenes, and it's coming out for Mac OS X on August 30. We're not sure if the game will be as amazing as its inspiration, but it's pretty hard to imagine that we wont have a blast tearing up the streets of Mac|Life's hometown of San Francisco.
WWDC brought us a chock full of new things, including iCloud and iTunes Match, as well as the full breakdown of features in the next iteration of OS X. But unfortunately, there was no iPhone at last week's big keynote. While that might be bad news for most of us, it's great news for Apple-centirc gossip mongers. With no hints as to what features, form or functions the next iteration of the company's flagship mobile product might have in store for consumers, the rumor mill has worked itself up into a lather over what we might be able to expect from Cupertino in the months to come. Here's a quick rundown of what we've seen circling the web lately, and what may be coming soon.

Fortunately, there's an easy solution for backing up your files to your hard drive.
