Apple has been working fast and furious with the updates lately, knocking out two quick iOS 6.1 patches in less than a week along with a flurry of similar improvements for the Mac, two of which get the spotlight in our Tuesday recap. We've also got some sad news on Microsoft Office for Mac pricing and hey, there's a new version of Firefox ready to install as well, so let's get right to it...
iTunes 11 may barely be a couple of weeks old, but that doesn't mean Apple's latest media player software didn't arrive with a few bugs and quirks, but some of those have now been stomped out with the first minor update.
Despite being a month late, iTunes 11 didn’t disappoint. Version 11 has been completely overhauled, reimagined from the ground up, and we love the new features. It’s fully integrated with iCloud to make it easy to find all your purchased music and videos, and all the music you have stored in iTunes Match. The new interface is a huge change from the old iTunes look and feel, but we can help you get comfortable in no time. Kick off your shoes and settle into your new digital living room. And don’t forget to turn your speakers up.
Much has already been written about Microsoft's foray into tablets, and the news keeps getting worse for Redmond.

Can you guess the other two? If not, read on to find out what they are.
Looks like another week has come and gone and here we are, checking out the fancy new iTunes and the sweet skinny new iMacs and all the other cool new Apple news that happened. PONG is finally here, Siri's in the news, and more. So get reading, people.
Well, if you've been anxiously awaiting the arrival of iTunes 11, the moment has finally arrived. Packed full of interesting new interface tweaks and increased iCloud support, the new iTunes is a welcome site for a service that was showing its age.
