Well, if the week before last was the week of the iPad, last week was the week of iPhone OS 4.0. Apple's big announcement event answered a number of criticisms, introduced a bunch of exciting new developments, and set off fresh rounds of speculation.

Spring has sprung and sprung with a vengeance. Sunshine! Warm air! Being outdoors is once again a treat. Just as the vernal equinox passes us by and leads us to a bit more moving about, it'll soon be iPad launch day and we may find no good reasons to go back inside for quite some time.
Meanwhile, as we await that wonderful sidewalk cafe life with our reading and our data streaming right by our sides, here's this week's menu of the best stories from a week of Mac|Life. Order well.
We know spring doesn't officially start for another two weeks, but the way the weather and the sun have been playing with our minds lately, it feels like it might really happen on schedule. Of course, if we know winter, there's always at least one more trick up its sleeve. But this weather! It almost makes us not want to be inside playing with our tech toys.
So load up these links on your iPhone and get stepping out like us, because it's another sunshiney week of the best of the best from Mac|Life.
