Bento 3 aims to organize your personal life into tidy, neat
compartments. Essentially a database application geared toward

their mice have just plain sucked. But now with the Magic Mouse, which
brings Multi-Touch technology to the desktop, Apple has created an
input device a bit more worthy of its pedigree.
Tales of Apple rejecting iPhone App Store apps have become commonplace these days as developers take their sob stories to the masses. It was only a matter of time before someone collected the information and opened a one-stop repository for them.
If you love taking pictures with your iPhone, you have probably already realized the limitations of the built-in Camera app. One of the best alternatives in the App Store has just gotten better with a fresh new 2.0 update.
The battle for online cinema dominance has been heating up in recent months.
