Oh yeah, now we're cooking. That's right — the Mac Mini is back in the house.

Needless to say there are loads of other choices in a variety of configurations, so let's get to the deals.
If you’re running iOS 8 on your iPhone, you’ve got Apple’s Health app. Lots of people haven’t so much as peeked inside it, though, and when they do, the hefty amount of health-tracking data can be daunting. But the app is a lot simpler than you might think, and it’s surprisingly useful even if you don’t exercise at all. It can really improve your life, and possibly even save it — we’ll show you how!
It finally feels like spring is in the air, and we're celebrating with another collection of new and updated apps! Relive childhood memories of trading Star Wars cards with friends, unlock your Mac just by approaching with your iPhone, edit photos, schedule events with your Google account, tweak geolocation or time and date metadata on images, walk, ride, or drive somewhere new, watch your kid become Rembrandt, or just discover a new movie with the latest edition of our New App Recap!

It'll be a while before we see those around these parts, but what can you get for the same money (aside from ports, haha)? Let's have a look.
