The big event on Tuesday was Apple CEO Tim Cook's return to the AllThingsD conference, which we'll get to in a moment, but we managed to assemble a handful of other tidbits for you as well. We've got an acquisition, a merger, a couple of software updates and even some gripes about Apple's plans to relocate its flagship San Francisco retail store… so dig in and enjoy!
People say to us all the time, "Why are you always playing on your phone?" Ha! Joke's on them, because our phone isn't just a pocket arcade. We're blogging, making music, scheduling doctor's appointments, taking notes on our screenplay, digging deep in cloud storage or on our home computers for work files, and tons of other things. If you're productivity-obsessed like we are, then you'll love this week's batch of price cuts that turn your iPhone or iPad into a tool for getting things done.
MAX 2013 may be in full gear in Los Angeles, but users will have to wait until June to get their hands on the new Creative Cloud editions of Adobe's products, which includes some exciting changes to the company's web creation applications.
The main event at Adobe's MAX 2013 conference in Los Angeles was a pair of two-hour keynotes that focused on the company's new Creative Suite, as well as on how its users embrace the creative process. While Monday's keynote heralded a big shift toward the subscription-only Creative Cloud software, Tuesday morning's keynote, "Community Inspires Creativity," focused strictly on the creative process as four designers from different fields hit the stage to talk about inspiration and their different approaches to work.

Adobe Creative Cloud is poised to become more unified than ever, with updates to all future versions, cloud-based Sync settings, and Behance social networking for creative designers all built into the package. But its flagship application, Photoshop, has plenty of new tricks as well.

One major disappointment with Apple's iOS version of iPhoto is its total disconnect with the Mac edition -- which is why we're excited to see Adobe teasing a version of Lightroom for iOS, which includes the ability to sync to the desktop.
It's been a busy week for new and updated apps, and while we can't single them all out in the space available, we've done our best to distill things down to coverage of the stuff you'll (hopefully) want to read about. We're also capping off the week with yet another update on the AppGratis saga, Adobe's thoughts on web fragmentation and more rumors that Amazon may get into the smartphone biz.
