We're sure you haven't been standing on the sidelines waiting for this announcement, but it will inevitably impact the way you and your friends use social networking. Since a million bajillion users have already signed on to Facebook for their daily dose of social addiction, it makes sense that they'd want to start using the site for their email correspondences, too. Let's take a look at Facebook message features and see how (and if!) they'll change the way we chat with our friends and family.
Comcast is bridging the gap between your cable box and iPad with a new remote app called Xfinity. This remote application lets you not only link and control your cable box with your iPad, but will even let you invite friends to watch the same TV show you are watching.
Calling all novice guitar players! if you're armed with a guitar and an iPad or iPod touch, you most definitely want to check out our sister magazine Guitar World's Lick of the Day app, now available in the iTunes App Store!
If there's one thing we've learned from watching episodes of "Intervention" oh Hulu, it's this: you really don't take a user's drug of choice away, not even as a joke. A bootleg iOS-comptaibly version of the gaming phenomenon appeared and just as quickly disappeared on the App Store this morning, all signs pointing to developer Notch requesting for the file to be removed.
If you love to share photos with your friends and family but privacy issues keep you fearful of doing so with big services like Facebook, you may have a new choice -- Path has launched their website alongside a free iPhone app that gets the job done, sharing your photos with only the people you want to see them.
Apple’s music-themed social network, Ping, has been something of a red-haired stepchild since its September 1 debut, but the feature is at least now available to iPad users at long last, no software update or app download required.
Despite the downward spiral of print publishing, news reading apps such as the popular Pulse News Reader are doing the opposite -- and now, print executives are going to follow the money trail as their readers flock to the Internet and mobile devices.
Way to get our hopes up then crush us as usual, rumor mill. Here we were, our iOS devices with their backups ready to download some 4.2 multitasking on our iPads and more. Heck, we even hear there's some more performance enhancing kicks for we sad 3G owners. And then Friday came and went and ... nothing. Well, here's a taste of what happened while we waited patiently aboard the good ship S.S. Mac|Life.
I'm sorry to announce that we will be shutting down the MacLife.com forums on Wednesday, November 17.
We wish to thank everyone that participated in the forums over the years and a huge thank you to the moderators that worked tirelessly over the years to make the forums a great place to talk about Apple products.
With the announcement of Ping integration with Twitter, Apple seems to be stepping more and more into the web arena with their products. So, it's no wonder that they would purchase the iTun.es domain name. But, what could it be used for? We hope an iTunes URL shortening service.
For years, Twitter has been happy to concede mobile versions of its impossibly popular network to third parties who knew what they were doing. In fact, the company was so behind the curve that, this June, it bought one of those app creators, Atebits, and rebranded it as its own official iPhone application.
Tinderbox is billed as a “personal content assistant,” which gave us happy visions of a devoted digital concierge at our beck and call. It’s a tool for recording, organizing, and connecting bits of information called notes--snippets of text about which you can record copious amounts of metadata.

What do you get when you cross the eccentricity of Pink Panther’s Jacques Clouseau with the inquisitiveness of Twin Peaks’ Dale Cooper? You get Nelson Tethers, the charismatic protagonist of Telltale’s new point-and-click adventure, Puzzle Agent. Tethers is the only employee of the FBI’s neglected Puzzle Research Division, and his first real field assignment is to head to Scoggins, Minnesota, and solve the mystery of an eraser factory’s sudden stop in production. This small town is peculiarly obsessed with puzzles, so it’s up to Tethers to wade through the lot of them and finally figure out what’s happened to the town’s only industry.
