It seems as if Amazon has waved the white flag of surrender against Apple's iTunes Match today, beefing up its Cloud Player service with a few features that sound awfully familiar to iTunes users. But hey, the more the merrier, and we're quite happy to have all of our Amazon MP3 purchases available for redownload just the same. While you wait for Cloud Player to scan and match your own music library, why not take in today's recap for this terrific Tuesday, July 31, 2012?
Tomorrow is the last day of July, and what a month it's been! Seems as if iPhone users will have to suffer through the dog days of summer in August with today's news that the next handset is likely to have its moment in the spotlight come mid-September instead of last year's October debut of the iPhone 4S. Quick! To the upgrade eligibility calculator! And when you come back, be sure to read what else is happening for this July 30, 2012.
It's almost time to kiss July goodbye, and that means the dog days of August will soon be upon us! If you're sad to see the summer slipping by before your eyes, console yourself by reading today's recap, enjoy the weekend and come back Monday for two more July editions. Then you can go back to being sad next Wednesday! In the meantime, here's what's happening for Friday, July 27, 2012.
So how's that OS X Mountain Lion working out for everyone, one day later? We're seeing an annoying issue with our MacBook Pro with Retina Display losing track of our USB 3.0 hub whenever the notebook sleeps, but otherwise it's been smooth sailing. Speaking of sailing, have you flown over L.A. or Boston or even San Francisco lately? Now you can, thanks to Google Earth 7.0. This and a few other tidbits make up our recap for Thursday, July 26, 2012.
Well, it's not hard to see what the big story of the day is: OS X Mountain Lion is here, and despite some hiccups with Apple's Up-to-Date Program for new Mac owners, the launch appears to be a smashing success. (We gave up on waiting for our code and bought it -- hey Apple, we've got deadlines here!) Now that you've had a chance to comb through some of that Mountain Lion goodness, why not kick up your feet and take a break for a few minutes by perusing through our news recap for this Wednesday, July 25, 2012?
Another July day and still no OS X Mountain Lion? Well, the wait appears to soon be over, which means developers should step up releasing updates to support Apple's latest big cat, and we've got one of them in today's recap, Mountain Lion Cache Cleaner. But enough of our yakkin', let's get straight to the news for this terrific Tuesday, July 24, 2012!
What's this? Still no OS X Mountain Lion? Fear not, Mac lovers -- it's only Monday, the week is young and there's plenty of other tech news brewing to read about. Why, just look at the next page right here… we've got five groovy stories to cap off the day, so why not dive in and find out what's making headlines for this Monday, July 23, 2012?
Wow, it's a really good day to be a Mac and iOS developer if your name is either Sparrow or Acrylic Software -- but not so much if you're a user of their products. Both companies have been snapped up by social giants (Google and Facebook, respectively), leaving their App Store wares essentially abandoned as they trot off to make their mark on bigger companies. As we play fire up some taps to commemorate our fallen apps, feel free to dig into the rest of the day's news for this Friday, July 20, 2012.
Companies are releasing their Q2 2012 financials left and right this week, but of course the one we're really waiting for is Apple's, which will swoop in next Tuesday, presumably ahead of the release of OS X Mountain Lion. Meanwhile, Cupertino is blasting out iTunes in the Cloud in a ton of new countries and Microsoft sets a date for Windows 8 -- all in today's recap for Thursday, July 19, 2012.
If you're still sitting there trying to figure out if you should move your AT&T family plan to one of the company's Mobile Shared packages next month, now might be a good time to take a break and let your eyes feast upon something else -- you know, like all the juicy tech news making headlines for this mid-week hump day. And hey, look at that -- we happen to have some for you right now on this Wednesday, July 18, 2012.
