Adobe Premiere Pro CS3

It's been a long time since the Mac has seen Premiere - how does it look now that it's all grown up?

Say hello to Premiere's little DVD friend.

X-Arcade Tankstick

The Tankstick puts old-school controllers like those at left to shame, both in size and capabilities.  You call yourself a serious gamer - but what are you doing fumbling with keyboard controls and a mouse? You can’t call yourself a serious gamer until you get a nice game controller. If you want to let everyone know you’re really serious, then get a Tankstick.

Lego Star Wars II

Didn't Leia have pigtails in Return of the Jedi? An idea that seems to have been more likely spawned at a late-night, beer-filled party than between two major corporate brands, Lego Star Wars II re-creates the original Star Wars trilogy with Lego characters playing the roles. Dozens of them are formed in the same basic plastic shape, and even spaceships and other items are built with the classic bricks, scattering apart when destroyed. Answering, “Why not?” to our dumbfounded, “Why?” this strange juxtaposition laughs at itself, creating a game that’s often funny as well as fun.

Get Your Game On iPhone

 As soon as Steve Jobs announced developers would be able to create Web 2.0 apps for the iPhone over Safari, we knew it wouldn’t be long before the first games made their appearance. What we didn’t count on, however, was how good those first attempts would look.

First Look: Age of Empires 3

 It’s been a while since the Mac has seen a new Age of Empires game, but the wait is over. MacSoft has finally completed its conversion, bringing the latest installment of the series to us - the strategy-starved Mac users. Age of Empires III takes you back to the conflict between the European powers fighting for their fair (or unfair) piece of the New World pie (North and South America for the historically disadvantaged reader). In this setting, you’ll have access to the magic of gunpowder from the get go - in stark contrast to its advanced technological status in the earlier games. Despite this shift in backdrop, the game plays very similarly to previous titles in the AoE series.

Hard plastic cases and laptop sleeves can make the difference between a MacBook or MacBook Pro exterior that’s scratched and dented, and a pristine exterior.
