Soundtrack Pro is a multitrack audio editor intended to be used as part
of a video workflow, though it’s equally adept at standalone audio
projects. It was once sold separately, but for the last few years, it’s
been available exclusively as part of the Final Cut Studio and Logic
Studio bundles. The latest incarnation, version 3, offers a wide range
of fine-tuned interface tweaks and a few new tricks that will make
anyone who produces pro audio take notice.
One of the big reasons we didn’t have a gadget-crush on the third-gen
iPod shuffle (3 out of 5 stars, Jun/09) is its reliance on Apple’s
earbuds to control the device. Without any buttons on the shuffle’s
chassis, the inline remote on the included ’buds is the only way to
navigate tracks, play, pause, or make volume adjustments. But now
Scosche’s tapSTICK aims to improve your shuffle experience by adding
back the third-gen shuffle’s missing buttons.
AT&T is suing Verizon over its "There's a map for That" ad campaign, but that hasn't stopped Verizon from using the same Verizon vs. AT&T image map of 3G coverage in the U.S. in new holiday advertising.
Apple TV 3.0 update ushered in iTunes Extras and LPs on our favorite little television accessory, but users were told that currently owned iTunes Extras and LPs wouldn't work with the ATV just yet. However, ATV owners can now re-download their Extras/LPs in the new compatible format.
We really like free stuff. Any time we go to the mall, we spend half
our time at the Apple store, and the other half sitting in the free
massage chairs at Brookstone. However, you don't often get expensive
things for free on the internet (those "free ipod" scams don't count). MacHeist
would like that to change.

Yes, messenger bags are stylish. But after several years of schlepping our MacBooks and their accoutrement around in one, we were ready for something easier to carry. Backpacks--and laptop versions in particular--certainly aren’t known for being particularly fashion-forward, but we are pleased with Evolution’s sporty good looks, as well as its full complement of pockets.
While the argument rages in the comments sections at various blogs about whether or not a new game, created for a Master of Fine Arts final project, is malware or not, we're still searching for someone to test it out on their Mac.
Don't look at us. There's not the slightest chance we'd ever click on that link.
In 1993, Billy Idol released a concept album called Cyberpunk,
which shipped to rock critics with a floppy disk of interactive
artwork. We can’t recall a single track from the album, but we do
remember being sure that this was the future of music. iTunes LP
reminds us of that--and of years spent pouring over liner notes before
there was Google search.
The biggest challenge of the Web is finding information you want. For a
while, bookmarks sufficed, giving users an easy way to quickly return
to their favorite sites. As bookmark lists grew, Really Simple
Syndication (RSS) became the preferred tool of Internet power-users. An
RSS reader makes it easy to track a large number of sites, but
eventually, you’re subscribed to so many feeds that finding the good
stuff becomes a challenge. Enter Fever, a Web-based RSS reader that
tries to solve this info overload by sorting your news by importance.
