The first time I put on the Synapse (which Tom Bihn sent to us in an electric purple called “Plum”), Robbie called from across the office, “So you finally joined Prince’s New Power Generation?” Sigh. All kidding aside, finding a great bag for your MacBook is challenging. Messenger bags are stylish, but lugging a full one around all day can get tiring. Tom Bihn’s Synapse is a compact backpack that’s easy to carry, fits a MacBook, and offers a well-thought-out design that’s a step above your average backpack. And it’s available in many other shades--assuming that you don’t actually want to be mistaken for The Purple One, that is.
Everyone loves a new version of a useful utility app, especially when it brings with it great new features. Readdle is a company that doesn’t disappoint when it comes to ladling on the functionality and improving their apps with every new release, and this week’s Scanner Pro 2.0 is no exception.
If you're like us, you've been waiting for a long time to upgrade your MacBook Pro. Well thanks to an email from Steve Jobs and some intel about Intel, we're cautiously optimistic that we'll have new MacBook Pros to charge on our credit cards.

music to the festivities with Cy•fi’s Wireless Sports Speaker.
Apple is reportedly selling free roaming iPhones to customers around the
United States. The internal memo sent out to Apple employees states
that customers do not have to be tied to AT&T to qualify for an
iPhone and can purchase the device at full price. However, customers
will only be allowed to purchase one iPhone at full price per day, or 10
during a lifetime.
By now, you've probably launched the Camera app and taken a few
pictures. Maybe you've even shared these pictures with other people.
Though the built-in camera doesn't do everything your point-and-shoot
does, and it will never have the optical abilities of a DSLR, it has a
major advantage over dedicated cameras: the iPhone OS lets you install
apps that take your pictures and video to another level.
Here are 10 great apps that let you create, modify and share your
images. You probably don't need all ten, as there's some feature
overlap among these apps. Try a few of these to see if your creative
mind enjoys using a variety of tools.
