Good News Everybody! Snow Leopard is up an running on a computer rocking one of Intel's zippy next generation "Sandy Bridge" processors! That means a significant performance bump for the end-user! Now, the bad news: OS X only works with the new processor when forced to do so at gunpoint. Boo.
We treat cooking like a religion and recipes like scripture. But we can’t turn to any hotel nightstand to pull out our bible, so what happens to those recipes when we’re traveling around the world or just moseying to the kitchen? Yum 4 stores and organizes recipes on your Mac, even copying them to a free, companion iOS app. That means you can easily reference a MacBook or iPhone to make impromptu wasabi-and-edamame mashed potatoes while at a cousin’s for the holidays.
