It's our last recap of the week, which means the weekend is once again upon us! There are plenty of Thursday updates you'll want to get a heads-up about before wrapping up the work week, particularly for owners of mid-2012 MacBook Air models. Don't be shy, dig in and enjoy our bite-sized nuggets of tech news -- it will only take a few minutes!
You kind of have to admire the timing. While most of the tech world is focused on the ramifications of Google's I/O yesterday, Apple followed up its perfectly timed 50 billion app downloads milestone with today's minor but notable update for iTunes. New features include a pleasing new interface for the miniplayer and additional support for multi disc albums. It doesn't reverse many of the unpopular design shifts made with 11.0, but it's good to see an update that adds some cool new features without adding unnecessary bloat.
