Keynote isn’t just a tool for presentations, it’s also a great piece of software for creating slideshows from your photos. Of course, iPhoto, OS X screensavers and the Apple TV also create great slideshows from your photos, but Keynote offers you far more flexibility to tailor the show to your liking.

A little something for everyone here in this week. You want some MacBooks? We got 'em. You want software? We got that too. How about cases and keyboards and styli and all the rest? Oh yes, we have that too, and the steepest headphone price cut we've ever seen.
