We know, you're all sitting by the internet waiting to see what Microsoft will be announcing tonight. But for those who aren't (or simply don't care), we're back with our usual generous helping of tech news for this post-WWDC 2012 week. It's a fairly lazy day for tech news, but that doesn't mean that you'll have to dig far to read everything happening on this Monday, June 18, 2012.
We love us some Plex here at MacLife.com, so every new update is a bit of a treat for us. If you love Plex and also love your friends, then you'll want to rush to the App Store to grab version 2.4 of the iOS app, which brings a new social angle to the media streamer.
We are increasingly encouraged by social networks to flag things we find online that we like. The Facebook "Like" button is now almost ubiquitous, popping up on myriad websites, but you’ll also find similar functionality in Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, and many other networks.
Just like clockwork, Apple took the wraps off iOS 6 on Monday during the WWDC 2012 keynote, and developers have already started tinkering with the first beta build. While the company showed off some key features, there’s plenty more in store -- and here’s a look at what we know thus far.

How much is your time worth? That’s the question posed by SaneBox, an email utility that promises to save you gobs of time by sorting through your email and separating the important stuff from, well, the other 93 percent. It’s such a simple idea, and yet other services (including heavyweights like Gmail) have failed to pull it off. But SaneBox gets it right, and packs in extra features that leave us wondering how we ever got along without it.
While there’s no shortage of photo apps on the App Store for turning your images into a thing of beauty, few companies do it as well as Tiffen, a leader in photographic filters -- and the latest versions of their iOS apps are now more social as well.
June has finally arrived, and with it comes a tidal wave of tech news for what’s generally a pretty lazy last day of the work week. We can’t report on everything, but we’ve managed to distill the day down to the five coolest stories you won’t want to miss -- so adjust your seats into a launch position and let’s dive right into this freaky Friday, June 1, 2012.
