It was a slow week in big Mac news. The lull before the storm that is WWDC, no doubt. Google made a few waves, it's true, but they weren't very big ones. Facebook was Facebook, Twitter for iPhone finally came out...and, yeah. Like we said, nothing really earth shattering.
Still, the week was not without its points of interest, small though they may be. For real. So let's take a peek under the covers and see what did and didn't change the world, at least according to Mac|Life.
Back in the early days of gaming consoles, there was quite a bit of jockeying between Nintendo and Sega. While the latter eventually won the hardware war, Sega has shifted into creating software for other consoles and platforms. And the platform we, of course, are most excited about them bestowing their attentions on is the iPhone OS.
What, you may ask, has us so singing the praises of Sega gaming? Oh, just a little game they're tweaking and prepping called Sonic 4. At least according to the Sega blog -- and they seem in a position to know.

AT&T announced last week that 3G data users may have their patience rewarded this year as the telco giant performs a high-speed network upgrade which should effectively double the current speeds users are getting.
We're thinking you might have missed some of the great Mac|Life articles up late this week, since you were so busy gaming your days and nights away. That's right, it was the week Steam came to Macs, and like some of us in the office (ahem) you're probably bleary eyed and sleep-deprived from shooting shooting shooting.
So, if you're taking a break from gaming, why not take a gander at the week's best articles from the killers over at Mac|Life.
Apple has worked hard lately at being recognized for its green efforts. They've touted their environmentally friendly manufacturing policies on their site, they've cut down on packaging, and they instituted a recycling program for all their old products.
But, they also work with suppliers out of China, a country not known for strong environmental policies or one unfamiliar with the backroom deal. And one of their suppliers is delivering a nice black eye to the company.
