There was so much news this week we don't even know where to start. Okay, that's not entirely true, but it was a super busy week. We had CES hitting on all cylinders all week and we covered that extensively, then there was the launching of the Mac App Store (and its nearly immediate hacking) which was rather exciting, and before the weekend was over we had pretty solid support for the iPhone at long last arriving at Verizon.
Wow. That's a tall order, but if anyone can bring it down to nice bite size morsels of weekly goodness, it's the dedicated Mac|Lifers who saw it all, just In Case You Missed It.
We scoured the CES 2011 show floor looking for the best, most innovative products that this year's massive consumer trade show has to offer. Read on for a look at this year's most innovative iOS gadget, content creation device, lifestyle product and iPhone accessory, and audio dock, plus their runner-ups.
With all of the gadgets invading our homes and workspaces, it’s no surprise that one product category that’s exploding these days are charging systems -- particularly multi-gadget chargers like the ones Idapt is showing off at this year’s CES.
First introduced at last year’s Consumer Electronics Show, the folks behind AirStash have returned with some new superpowers for their pocketable wireless flash drive, including media streaming and WebDAV support.
Canabalt has been an addicting Flash browser-based game for some time, but the iPhone and iPad version of the game changed where we could play this game. Now, thanks to the Indie iPhone Holiday Sale, the developers have been able to give 1/3 of the profits from the game to charity this holiday season.
The thing we've long-loved about Skype is the ability to conduct a video chat with relative ease, but it wasn't until just last week that you could video chat right from your iOS devices. That's why we wanted to take a minute to show you how to utilize Skype's new video calling features.
The annual Consumer Electronics Show will invade Las Vegas this week, running from Thursday, January 6 through Sunday, January 9. Although Apple historically doesn’t attend this four-day showcase of digital delight, that doesn’t mean that the rumor mills aren’t churning round the clock leading up to the big event just the same.
Well, by now all our regular readers should have nursed their hangovers into sweet regular living, cleaned up their homes, made bail, and managed to find their ways home from three states over where they awoke the next morning. We don't blame you. Most everyone we know was all too ready to say sayonara to 2010, and no matter what the Mayans say, it's full speed ahead 2011. So pour yourself some coffee and let us take you back in time to the last week of the year, the one you've oh so blessedly blotted from your memories, because after this New Year's Eve, this really was a true case of In Case You Missed It.
Happy New Year! The planet has somehow managed to survive another 365 days, and you think that sort of miracle is something worth celebrating. Finding folks to party with on December 31st is easy--there are parties, events and libations every which way you turn. After the ball has dropped and the confetti has hit the ground, you’ve got to be on your toes if you want to get home safe and sound.
Fortunately, we here at Mac|Life are old hands at navigating the perils that come along with the aftermath of New Years Eve. To make sure that our valued readers get back home so they can keep on reading, we’ve put together a list of some of our favourite After Party iOS applications to give you an edge as you edge your way back home to bed.
