A big social media fail for one of Apple's bitterest rivals (hahaha) and some coming soon products from one of Apple's previous bitterest rivals. It's all about peace, love, understanding, and schadenfreude in this week's best of news stories. Plus, if you haven't updated your devices to iOS 7.1 what are you waiting for?
No matter how large or small a software company is, there are bound to be bugs sooner or later -- and with popular image editing software such as Pixelmator, that's exactly what happened with the latest version.

Aperture comes with 22 different adjustment tools that you can use on your photos to improve or otherwise alter them. However, you may find that you need to modify many shots in the same way to keep them consistent with one another.
