Sure, Adobe Photoshop is and may always be the king of the image editing jungle, but for those of us who simply can't afford it or prefer to support smaller developers, Pixelmator is about as good as it gets -- and with an update on Thursday, that's even better than before.
What a topsy-turvy world we live in! Valve's Steam is expanding beyond games next month, while Verizon js hoarding some not-so top-secret data plans for its new Share Everything program. Don't know what we're talking about? Then you clearly haven't read today's news recap, which includes all the details on this and much more. Here's the latest for Wednesday, August 8, 2012.
With Mountain Lion fresh out the gate, there doesn't seem to be too many deals on actual Macs this week, so cases it is. iOS accessories know no season and proliferate worse than bunnines in the springtime. We've rounded up the best of the sweet little bunnies and have just what you're looing for. Take a look at that face! How can you say no?
After releasing OS X Mountain Lion and a slew of supporting application updates on Wednesday, you'd think Apple would have taken a break -- but instead, new MacBook Air owners received a firmware update to enable the new Power Nap feature.
It's hard to believe that Apple hasn't released a completely new version of its iWork suite since the 2009 edition, but we're at least getting an update this week that brings OS X Mountain Lion support.
There are likely to be a tidal wave of Mac updates coming soon now that OS X Mountain Lion is about to arrive, but some have already made the necessary arrangements, which includes menu bar calendar app Fantastical.
Another July day and still no OS X Mountain Lion? Well, the wait appears to soon be over, which means developers should step up releasing updates to support Apple's latest big cat, and we've got one of them in today's recap, Mountain Lion Cache Cleaner. But enough of our yakkin', let's get straight to the news for this terrific Tuesday, July 24, 2012!
Although many feared that the Mac App Store might crush those sweet software bundle deals, it seems like there's more of them than ever before. One of the biggest has to be the iStack Mac Bundle, which nets buyers $926 worth of awesomeness for a mere $49.99 -- not to mention a chance to win one of those sweet MacBook Pros with Retina Display.

Although we haven't noticed this problem on our own MacBook Pro with Retina Display, InDesign users have been filling up Adobe's online forum with crashing problems since the Ivy Bridge-era notebooks were released in mid-June.
