We discuss two of the recent Apple tablet rumors. How did we pick just two? The same way the rumors are created, magic. Actually, we had a hat full of rumors and pulled two of them out of that. We call it, "The Magical Hat of Rumors."
We wonder how many red-eye pictures we'll start seeing on Facebook if the iPhone gets an LED flash and we make fun of companies using the name Slate.
Are you finally getting over your New Year's Eve partying? We got around to feeling human sometime late last night, just before bed again. Well, in case you were traveling or exercising your drinking arm excessively and didn't have a chance to check out these hot hits, here's a list of awesome Mac|Life articles to get you up to speed.
When it comes to New Year’s Eve, it’s all about the party. From
elegant, seven-course dinners to all-night drunken ragers, how you ring
