They're baaaack! That's right, everyone's favorite super-tiny desktop is back in the Apple-certified refurb game and we've got the models to prove it. Meanwhile, if you've got an iPad, you need a case and luckily we've got a few options in that department. And we haven't left the music lovers out in the cold either, so let's take a look inside.
Home brewing has become sensationally popular of late, and contrary to what you may think, you don't have to use a bathtub as your beer vat, nor must you refer to it as "moonshine." In fact, home breweries are incredibly common, and it's easier than ever to try your hand and creating original concoctions. Whether you're working on your first-ever batch or you have bottles and custom labels for your favorite creations, there are some great apps that can help you make the best beer you can. We've collected eight must-have apps for all of your home brewing projects.
From the handy to the hobbyist, the internet contains a vast and endless ocean of schematics and projects for all skill levels to occupy time, gussy up homes, and improve lives. While there are many hubs out there to hone your skills, Instructables is simply the most all-encompassing DIY site you'll find. Whether it's cooking homemade "Sweet Tarts" or building a vintage bookshelf, there are detailed instructions to get you from start to finish. However, sometimes you need to have that guide right by your side, and that's why the iPhone app is highlighted for this week's Free App Friday.
We love Dashboard on our Macs. It feels like a bit of iOS on OS X, with tiny apps that look pretty and perform simple functions amazingly well. With a beautiful interface and a dynamic set of customizable widgets, Panic's ambitious Status Board attempts to bring that experience to our iPads, with at-a-glance access to your most important data and a fantastic new playground for coders.
We write a lot about Instagram because it's pretty amazing. It's a fast and easy way to share great looking photos from our iPhones. We've written about how to order prints and a number of other things using your Instagram photos, but they aren't always cheap. And, worst of all, they aren't very instant. There's nothing worse than having to wait for all those photos to show up at your door. So, here's the easiest way to put the "insta" back into your Instagrams and print your own photos at home.
We're choosing to make 4" x 4" prints in this guide because they're easy to frame and because you can fit four prints to a regular sized page, getting you the most bang for your buck.
If you're like us, you're tired of having the same iPhone case as everyone else on the bus. We've even seen people toting the same cases we've bought from Amazon! At least it's still likely that something you get from Etsy will be original. So, we've compiled our ten favorite Etsy finds, just for funsies. While only some of these cases come from true local artisans, they're all unique, artful, and, for the most part, reasonably priced.
There’s no shortage of people looking for new ways to tell other people how to do things on the Internet, but usually these tutorials are better seen than read. That’s where Snapguide comes in. The free iPhone and iPod touch app makes it easy to teach or learn skills, tricks, or tips. Its core approach is simple: Just take pictures or videos of whatever needs to be shown, and then write captions to create slideshow tutorials for anything.

We’re not quite there yet (and you’re no Patrick Stewart), but if you’ve got a Mac and a little extra time, you can happily print up a drinking glass, an iPhone case, a cufflink featuring Stephen Colbert’s head, toy starships--just about anything you can create (or download) a three-dimensional model of.
While dirt on a Mac could add character, it could also be a detriment to how your machine performs, especially if the dust and grime starts to seep into your inner components.
