Apple has finally released an AirPort Utility for iOS, enabling users to manage their AirPort routers without having to go through a Mac or PC. The AirPort Utility works on both iPhone and iPad, but it won’t give you access to all functions of your AirPort Extreme or Express like the desktop version of the application.

So we’ve looked at the basics when it comes to freeing up drive space, but if that didn’t do the job, several Mac apps will help you to detect and remove space-wasters. These tools range from system scans that will pick out very large files and list them in order of size to very specific apps that target common drive space thieves (like app-related files that linger after you’ve deleted an app) and bring them to justice via the Trash can. Then there’s the third kind of tool—one that’s part software, part service. Rather than removing large files completely, these offerings provide a way for you to move them to a secure storage space on the web. We’ll show you the four most effective ways to use these apps.

The newest incarnation of the world’s most popular consumer photo editing software is proof that, as the Irish saying goes, the older the fiddle, the sweeter the tune. Adobe Photoshop Elements has been on the Mac an entire decade, but it keeps getting better with age.
After years of domination in the pro video field, Apple, many believe, made a strategic error with the release of Final Cut Pro X ($299.99 in the Mac App Store), a misstep rival Adobe has benefitted from in its efforts to reclaim lost market shares for Premiere Pro ($799, adobe.com). The front line in this ongoing battle now shifts to the consumer market with the release of Premiere Elements 10, Adobe’s latest video editing suite for regular folks.
